ColourQ #191, CASE Study #143 and CAS-ual Fridays #103

I am squeaking in at almost the last minute with a card for this week's ColourQ cQc #191.  I used a little PTI set that I know was designed for Father's Day, but who says that mom's don't want to relax too?

This is our last week of having Maile Belles as our inspiration on CASE Study #143.  I was inspired by her original card as well as her new CASE of herself.  I drew some, but not all, of my colors from her cards, as well as the idea of having 5 die cut objects and a sentiment running across.  I used some of my new Onyx Shimmer paper for the die cut 'birthday' word, and it is just so gorgeous I almost couldn't cut it (but I did).  I backed that die cut with a few layers of True Black to make it pop up.

My last card is for this week's CAS-ual Fridays CFC103:  Congratulations, and it is another graduation card.  I used a piece of Lawn Fawn Dewey Decimal paper to determine my color scheme, and a graduation subway stamp from Taylored Expressions.  I stamped the sentiment block several times in different colors, and then cut and pasted them together.  I popped up the graduation cap and coated it with lots of Glossy Accents.

That's it for me today.

  1. Joyce, once again you have come up with some pretty amazing cards! I love them all...My favorite one is your Mother's Day card and wouldn't it be nice to be able to sit back in that chair and be waited on all day??? I can dream. Your birthday card with the shimmer paper is fabulous too...can't wait to use my new paper. Love your new graduation stamp card too, such a fun stamp and love the way you changed up the colors...too cute!

  2. A great bunch of cards. I love the texture on the first one and the black sentiment looks so striking over your candles on the second one. And your patterned paper is perfect for your last one.

  3. Cute. Cute. Cute idea to add that little graduation cap to the subway sentiment. That was the last thing I saw and my most favorite card too! I also really like your take on Maile's card. Love the black birthday die cut over the candles. Great job.

  13. Fabulous cards! I can see that you were quite inspired! :) Thanks for playing along with us at CASE Study!

  18. Great set of cards!! Love what you've done with the birthday candle card especially

  19. When I first saw your CAS-ual Fridays card, I thought, now how did she mask or color all those different words? Well cutting them out sounds so much easier!! Plus, you can get multiples from all the scraps! Smart. So glad you joined the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, Joyce!
