Time Out #83...Reminder...Happy Mother's Day





There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this time is a CASE challenge, and we have this gorgeous card by Hannelie to inspire us.



I was inspired by the beautiful blending behind Hannelie's window, as well has her die cut flowers.  I really liked the contrast between the uncolored flowers and the richly colored window, so I mimicked that look.




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

CASology Week 249: Warm



Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is warm.  I thought it would be fun to pull out my MFT penguin and put him in a very unlikely, and very warm, place.  I think this guy is at my beach right now.



I am also entering this card at AAA Cards #90: Embossing (a very subtle linen texture) and Simon Says Wednesday: Going Dotty.




Now it's your turn.  How does WARM inspire you?  I hope you play along this week.  Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

Happy Birthday



Happy Mother's Day to all my friends.  I was lucky enough to get some crafty time today, and have 2 cards to share.

First up is a card using some new PTI dies--Cuddly Cat.



I was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #221, and am also entering this card at AAA Cards #90: Embossing, Addicted to CAS #111: Pink, Seize the Birthday: Creatures or Animals, and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Going Dotty.









My second card was so quick to make.  I created a background with a sentiment from Pen and Ink, using the technique from this week's Make it Monday #284.  I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and more #241: Anything Goes.

CASology Week #247: Flow



Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is flow.  I thought about water flow and the flow of waves.  Perhaps that is because I live so close to the ocean.

I created a little scene with three simple sail boats.  I kept my card CAS by leaving a lot of white space between the waves and also limiting the number of colors I used.  I curved my sentiment to follow the curve of the top wave.



Now it's your turn.  How does FLOW inspire you?  I hope you play along this week.  Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

I am also linking this card up at Simon Says Monday Challenge: The Great Outdoors, Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes and Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes.

My Crafty Weekend


I feel like it has been a long time since I had a large group of cards to post as a result of weekend fun in the craft room--today is the day.

First up is a bunch of cards inspired by Kay's beautiful card at Muse #231.

Kay's Inspiration Card
I loved the idea of the lightly stamped city skyline and a beautiful floral focal point.  I created two Mother's Day cards using PTI City Scene and Gran's Garden stamps.


I am also entering this card at CAS on Sunday #107: Use glitter or sequins (I used sequins).


I made another version of the same card, using different die cuts from Grans Garden.  I am entering this card at Time Out #82: Flowers (where I am on the DT).




While I had all the buildings from City Scene set up in my Misti, I made a few Father's Day cards. Why should the Mother's Day cards get all the fun, right?


I am entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes and Addicted to Stamps and More #239: Clean and Simple.



Are you sick of this design yet?  I have one more Father's Day card, and I am entering this one at AAA Cards #89: Bright and Beautiful.




My parents as well as my In-Laws are all from New York, so I think they will appreciate the New York themed cards.


The sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #285 inspired my next card.  I flipped the sketch.





Last up is a pair of cards I made with the Bloom & Grow kit.

The first card is inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #219, and I used the Stenciled Water Color Background technique from Make it Monday #282.



You can pull the flowers up to see the sentiment.





One more card from Bloom & Grow, this one using the patterned paper in the kit.



I am entering this card at Seize the Birthday Anything Goes.



That's it for me this weekend.
