I had lots of new goodies to play with this weekend, plenty of crafting time, but no good ideas. Not one to let that stop me, I spent the weekend CASing, and I still had a crafty good time.
First up are three cards using this week's technique at Make it Monday #166: Debossed Stamped Images. I am also entering them at Addicted to CAS #39: Texture, and Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes. I cased myself and made a get well card for a friend going into surgery next week. I just changed up the color scheme, sentiment, and flipped the panels over.
I practically remade Dawn's card using the colors from ColourQ #243. I can really tell I am going to love playing with the butterflies in Beautiful Life. I don't know why my purple is showing up so dark in the photo.
And almost the same card again in this week's Color Throwdown #294. I'll also enter this one at Less is More #174 to use more than one stamp. I used stamps from Life is Beautiful and Wet Paint III on this card.
I also played around with Summer Sweetness--the new popsicle set from PTI that I was most looking forward to playing with. This card is inspired by Laurie's card here. I used Memento Luxe pigment inks on these stamps, and the coverage is so great. These are the type of stamps that I often have a hard time getting a good impression with dye inks. The green popsicle is popped up and coated with a thick layer of glossy accents.
This next card was inspired by Lizzie's card here--I loved her idea to show the popsicles partly eaten and also to stamp the little fruit wedge on top.
Finally, two Father's Day cards. The first one is inspired by my own card here--thanks to Kim for sending me the Star Cover plate die cuts.
My final card uses the color scheme at Colour Me #22. I was inspired by this card to order the Linked Dies from CAS-ual Fridays, and used the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #78.
That's it for me for the weekend. I hope to be able to make something more original in the coming week.
