a CASE in blue

 Hi there peeps! 

I was very inspired by a card Andrea M. made recently and it actually moved me to hit my craft room and CASE it.

Loved her color combo so I stuck with it. Perused my dies for something that would give that fall feel, but keep my life simple. Chose a bit bigger pattern for my BG but it sure looks a lot like hers. Love it.

Because I loved the design so much I decided to put a twist on it and go a bit masculine. Same colors. Different motif. Feathers this time. And an embossed plus clock BG to go with the happy birthday, time passing theme.

Inkystamp sentiment stamp,
embossing powder, twine
Lifestyle Crafts feather die,

That's it for today. Thanks for looking.

pretty in pink - and green

How about a couple cards with a similar color scheme although they came about in different ways.

The patterned paper inspired me for this first one.  Needed a personalized card for DS so decided to include the initial as part of a shaker.  Sequins and gold are always a good idea, right?

I was sorting through some old stamps and ran across this oldie but goodie peony from PTI. Paired it with a more modern stencil BG and some cool word dies from A Pocket Full of Happiness. And some glitter washi!

Hope you are having a peaceful day. Thanks for looking.

STAMPlorations art marks and markers

While I was having fun using up those gelli prints , I also had this cute little Mini Art Marks stamp set out. That little rainbow caught my eye and I had some fun with it, water based markers and a spray bottle.

Time consuming, but worth it I think. Have a good day.

STAMPlorations more designs with gelli prints

 Hi there peeps! 

I was having so much fun using a technique (a la Susanne R.) which also uses up those gelli prints we all have hanging around our craft rooms. 

Paired it with  a cool coffee mug die cut here.

Or how about with many bloom die cuts cut from black cardstock?

Oh heck. How about with a green heat embossed ice cream cone? Artistic license, ya know?
