I always have more crafting time when my daughter has a lot of homework, since she often needs me with her when she works. So, for the next few weeks, as she prepares for finals and end of term projects, I will be in my craft room, keeping her on track and working on my own stuff.
My first card for today is for this week's CASE Study challenge #141, where our muse is still Maile Belles. Here is her inspiration card.
I loved everything about this card, and took my inspiration from the layout, the colors, and the die cut word.
Next up is a card for this week's CASology challenge #44, where the cue word is 'bloom'. I am also submitting this card to this week's Simon Says...Flower Power challenge. I got my inspiration from this card by Nicole during the PTI release of Fancy Folk Art.
Keeping with the flower theme, this card is for this weeks challenge at A Blog Named Hero to create a CAS card. I saw a beautifully colored card on Bonnie's blog here, and I asked her how she did it, because I knew that the image was one single stamp. Stamp markers and a lot of huffing was her response, so I tried that out on this card. I am also linking this card up at CASology challenge #44 and Simon Says...Flower Power challenge.
My card for this week's Fusion Challenge #7 is inspired by the photo. This is unusual for me, as I normally have a hard time with inspiration photos and an easier time with sketches. But, when I saw that photo, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
My very last card today is for this week's One Layer Wednesday #140, where the challenge is all about making a border. I used my newest Avery Elle Link it Up stamp and some gold embossing powder (I hear that is quite trendy these days) to make a simple yet elegant thank you card.
That's it for me today. Rachel is done with her studying for the day, and is off jumping on the trampoline. I wonder what tomorrow will bring?
