Time Out #144...Happy Anniversary

There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  This week, we challenge you to be inspired by this photo:  

Here is a bigger version of the inspiration photo...

I was inspired by the black and white graphic elements of the photo, especially the stripes on the floor.  I also used a green plant as a pop of color on my card, inspired by the pop of green plant in the photo.

Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Hannelie, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge. Poppystamps is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.

CASology Week #352...Dragonfly

Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is DRAGONFLY.  I used this wonderful set from our sponsor, STAMPlorations called Winged Things.  I just love the delicate hand drawn images.

Now it's your turn.  How does DRAGONFLY inspire you?

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

I hope you play along this week.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the our Guest Designer Deepti and the CASology design team.  Our sponsor this week is STAMPlorations.

My Crafty Weekend

Hello friends.  I had a fun and crafty weekend, and now I am sharing what I created.  First up is my final entry into the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #60: Create a Scene.  I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #358: Holiday, Simon Says Monday Challenge: Stamp it, and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Bling it On.

Next up is Yappy Birthday!  I am entering this card at AAA Birthday #5: Use a Stencil, Shopping Our Stash #404: Dog Days of Summer, and Simon Says Monday Challenge: Stamp it.

I used 3 different dies for my next card, which I am entering at Poppystamps Challenge #60: Anything Goes.  Aren't those monkeys adorable?  My design was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #339, and I am also entering this card at Just Us Girls #505: Stacking Die Cuts

Less is More #404 wants us to be inspired by Typography.  When I looked it up to see what it was, I realized that I have many stamps featuring that element, and it was hard to decide with to use.  This card is also inspired by the challenge at The Paper Players #459: Marvelous Metalics (my ink is gold).

Last of all is another card inspired by the challenge at Less is More #404: Typography and also The Male Room #119: Autumn.

Dashing Through the Snow

I am quickly popping in with a card for several challenges:  Lawn Fawnatics #60: Create a Scene, Addicted to Stamps and More #358: Holiday, Simon Says Stamp Monday:  Stamp It, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday: Bling.  I pulled out this cute little bunny from Lawn Fawn for my scene, and used their tree border die to set the scene.  Don't ask me why I did the sky purple--it just felt right.

Happy Birthday

Happy Tuesday.  I am popping in quickly with a birthday card for my Sister in Law.  She is starting a new career as a Realtor, and I thought Altenew Neighborhood stamps would be perfect.

I am entering this card at the following challenges:  Shop Our Stash #404: Dog Days of Summer (look very closely at the brown dog in front of the house on the far left!, Inspirational #129: Crop (I had to crop the houses on the far right and far left just a tad to fit on my card), Simon Says Stamp Monday and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenges which are both "Stamp It", and AAA Cards #148:  Sketch with optional twist animals.

Thanks for Visiting

My Crafty Weekend

Hello and happy Sunday.  I have had lots of crafty energy, so I will just jump right in.  First up is a card using the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #338.  I am also entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Stamp It.

Next up is a fun, wine-themed card, using SSS Time For Wine.  I chuckle every time I see this sentiment.  I am entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #351:  Make Your Mark, Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #143:  L is for Liquor and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge:  Clear (wine glasses are clear).

For my next card, I was inspired by the challenge at Memory Box #53: Framed.  When I was looking through my Memory Box stash, I saw this Birch Tree stencil, and had this out of the box idea to have the die cut deer framed by the trees.  I am also entering this card at AAA Birthday #5:  Use a Stencil.

The challenge at Laurie's Fabulous Favorites is Fall, and I used one of my all time favorite PTI stamps, Harvest Berries for this card.  I used the color scheme at CAS Colours & Sketches #337, and I am also entering this card at The Male Room #119:  Autumn.

The challenge at CAS on Friday #163 is Die Cut Words, and that inspired my next card.  I used some really wide washi tape on the front of this card, and really like how quick and easy it was to get these gorgeous florals.

Next up (and last of all) are two cards I made using The Greetery Bountiful Wreath stamps and dies.  This first card uses the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #401 and the colors from Color Throwdown #559.

Last up, is a card inspired by the color scheme at The Paper Players #458.
