CASology 118 and Paper Smooches Sparks

Hi there.  I am popping in quickly to share another card I made for this week's CASology HOME challenge.  I am also playing along with Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes challenge.

All the stamping is from Paper Smooches Bitty Bungalows, and there are lots of different dies on this card--Poppy Stamps for the houses, Memory box for the trees, Simon Says Stamp for the curved hill and Mama Elephant for the stitched clouds.  Ahhhh, I do love my dies.

Thanks for Visiting

Card Drives (Part 3)

Hi there.  I am popping in very quickly to share the last cards I made to play along with the Pink Christmas Challenge at Jingle Belles.  I am also playing along at Merry Monday, where the challenge this week is non-traditional colors.

My last two cards use the sketch at Wanna Sketch.

I am also entering all of these cards at Addicted to Stamps Holiday challenge, and then sending them all off to the Caring Hearts card drive.

CASology Week 118:

Happy Tuesday!  It's time for another CASology challenge and this week, our cue word is HOME. I love house and building stamps and dies as well as any sort of cityscape.  I decided to create a homey and wintery scene that I will never see where I live but still makes me yearn for winter.  I used an old favorite die--Memory Box Country Landscape along with a new die--Lawn Fawn Forest Border to create my scene.

Now, it is your turn.  What do you think of when you see the word HOME?  Have some fun with the cue word HOME, and then please link up your creation on the CASology blog by Monday at noon (CST).

Check out the beautiful designs from the CASology Design Team members and see how they were inspired by HOME.  Don't forget to keep your card Clean and Simple.

Sunday Night Wrap Up and Card Drives (Part 2)

I'm playing along with this week's RetroSketches rs#127, where the sketch is one of my favorite cards by their fabulous Guest Designer, Tracey!  I am also playing along at Just Us Girls #263 and Addicted to CAS Code Word:  Vellum.  The color is a bit off in my photo, but my front panel is SU Navy card stock, and I've backed the open circle cut with vellum.

I've got another card for Tag You're It, and I am also sending it in for the Splitcoast Stampers Hope You Can Cling To challenge Something's Missing.  I did not color the flowers inside--they are missing a solid color.

My next 3 cards play along with the Pink Christmas Challenge at Jingle Belles, and I will send them to the Caring Hearts Drive.

These two play along with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #158

Card Drives (Part 1)

Hello.  It is almost the weekend here.  Yay.  I must warn you that I am posting a lot of cards today.  I've been on a tear, making cards for various card drives.  Are you ready?

I will start with 4 cards that I am linking up to the Pink Christmas challenge at Jingle Belles.   They are donating $4 to the Susan G. Koman Foundation for every card linked up.  And, then I am sending these cards along to the Caring Hearts card drive.

I followed the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and was inspired by Kristi's card for my first two cards.

I made a bunch of cards using this sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping #311.

All the rest of my cards are for various challenges at Splitcoast Stampers Hope You Can Cling To, and I will be sending them to MD Anderson Cancer Center.

This card plays along with the current challenge at Tag You're It #8 and the Something's Missing challenge at HYCCT.  On this card, the stamped background sentiment letters are missing color inside.  I wanted to show that something could be very pretty and still be missing something.  The background stamping Kim did on this card was my inspiration.

These next two cards may look the same, but can you spot the difference?  I switched around the order of the ice cream colors, since I had to run the die through 5 times, once for each color.  Yes, if you are a regular reader, you will eventually see these ice creams on 5 different cards.  One is for the Spoonful of Sugar challenge and the other is for the Two by Two challenge to use pink and purple together.

The next 10 cards are for the Stripping Down challenge to use strips of paper.  I used the sketch above from Clean and Simple Stamping and really had a good time digging through my pattern papers to make these cards.  And, while they all follow the same basic sketch, they are all different in some way.  Here goes:


Well, that's it for me today.  I have a bunch more half finished that I will work on and post over the weekend.
