Can You Case it Challenge #146

This challenge from Can You Case It  was truly a challenge for me.  I had a lot of difficulty with this color combination.  I chose the colors from my selection of Fun Stampers Journey card stock and Rich Sorbet designer papers.  I used my egg die to create the three eggs and my pocket cut dies for the teal band.  The sentiment was chosen from the Easter Wishes stamp set.  All of these products can be found on my website  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will take the challenge and join us at Can You Case It.


Savvy 7 February Blog Hop

Well here it is February and time for another blog hop.  This month's theme appropriately enough is "All you need is love".  

This card was created using a lot of items I had in my stash.  The hearts were from my Spellbinder's Die of the Month club set for January.  I thought they were very appropriate for this particular theme.  The papers were part of a coordinating paper pack which made that part of the card super easy.  I used my Love die from my FSJ Snapshot Frames die set and added a pretty rosette from my stash along with some coordinating pink ribbon.  

I hope you enjoy this card and will visit all the other blogs along the hop.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

CYCI Challenge #145

It's that time again for another Can You Case It Color Challenge.  This weeks challenge required the use of blue, purple, white, and silver.  I chose all Fun Stampers Journey products for my card.  I started with a base card of  Deep Lilac.  Then using the Geo Burst die, I cut out the design onto Whip Cream cardstock.  I also cut another one using Beach Breeze cardstock.  Then carefully placed the blue pieces inside some of the flowers from the die.  Using a regular office punch, I cut out small circles with brushed silver.  The tag was also cut using the Tag Time punch and stamped with Deep Lilac.  I then added some Beach Breeze twine to finish off the design.  

I hope you like the card and that you will stop on over to and see all the wonderful design team submissions.  I hope they will inspire you to join in an add a card of your own.  

Have a great week and thank you for stopping by!

Savvy & Blog Hop - Snowflake Theme.

Hello and welcome to the first Savvy 7 Blog Hop!  This month's hop is a snowflake theme.  Here is the card I created for this hop:

This card was particularly hard to photograph.  It is so sparkly and shiny.  I started with a white card stock base.  Then added a layer of beautiful blue metallic paper that I had in my stash.  Next, I cut out three different snowflakes from white glitter paper.  The smaller center snowflakes were cut out of lighter blue holographic paper.  I added the sentiment in blue onto white card stock which was matted on a piece of the holographic paper.  I only wish you could see it in person, or that I was a better photographer.  It really is pretty.

I hope you enjoyed this card and that you will hop on over and visit the other bloggers and see what they came up with for this hop and hopefully join in the fun yourself.

Thanks for stopping by!

CYCI Challenge #144

I first want to say that I hope you all had a fabulous holiday season, and that your 2017 is off to a wonderful start.  

Now that the holidays are over, it is back to business as usual.  Our can you case it challenges are back on schedule.  This week's challenge is a color challenge. 

All the products used for this card are from Fun Stampers Journey.  The papers I chose are Watermelon Fusion, Cool Pool, Whip Cream, and River Stone.  The inks I used are River Stone, Watermelon Fusion and Cool Pool.  The stamp set I chose was Beautiful Wings.

I really love this layered stamps set. I was able to use the first layer of the set to stamp a soft background using the Cool Pool ink.  Then I added the second layer to only one of the background butterflies using the Watermelon Fusion Ink.  I added the final and top layer of the butterfly and stamped the sentiment using River Stone Ink.  

I love the soft look of this card and the fact that only one of the butterflies is completed which makes it the focal point.

I hope you will join us this week  and try your hand at our challenge.  We would love to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by,

CYCI #143 Challenge

Well it is that time again.  Another CYCI Challenge.  This time it is a sketch challenge.  I think these are my favorite types of challenges.  This card has a cute story.  My husband, who has worn contact lenses since forever, finally got a new pair of glasses today.  So, when I saw this stamp, I just had to make the card.  He got quite a kick out of it to say the least!  And, it worked perfectly for this challenge.

Everything used for this card (except the buttons) are from Fun Stampers Journey.  I hope you like the card and will join in the fun and take the challenge for yourself!  Don't be shy, show us your card!

Have a great Holiday!

CYCI Challenge # 142

This challenge from CYCI was a color challenge.  Well it was challenging for me to find these colors in my stash.  So, I took a little artistic license and used a slightly lighter color than eggplant.  I had this pretty printed paper and sentiment stamp which came as a free gift with a card making magazine.  Since it had the lavender and silver colors in it, I thought it would give me a chance to use it.  I paired it with a slightly darker cardstock and matted both pieces onto a white base.  It is so hard to see in the photo, but the tops of the trees on the print paper is silver.  I then embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and finished it off with a lavender bow.

I hope you like it and that you will stop by and take the challenge for yourself.  We would love to see what you create.

Have a great day!
