My Crafty Roundup

This is a photo heavy post, so I'm going to get right into it.  I'll start with what I think may be my favorite card of the week.  This card took a while to construct, but I am happy with the way it came out.  I based it on something I saw somewhere, but cannot find again.  I white embossed the skyline from Concord & 9th City Stacks on various shades of grey paper and layered them up over a sky that I made with Distress Oxide ink and water.

I am entering this card at Where Creativity Meets C9 #24: Anything Goes.

Next up is a birthday card with an adorable elephant die that spouts 'real' water from Poppystamps.  I am entering this card at Poppystamps Challenge #47: Make a Splash, Freshly Made Sketches #349, CAS Colours & Sketches #284, and Seize the Birthday: Water.

My next card is inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #284.  I used the cute bunny and stars from CAS-ual Fridays Somebunny.

The inspiration photo from Inkspirational #167 had me drooling at the thought of ice cream.  Instead of eating ice cream, I finished this card, that I had started using some Hero Arts stamps I borrowed from Kim.

I used some stamps from Altenew Sketchy Cities America to make a few quick thank you card sets.  These are great to have around, and give just the right amount of space for my kids to write their "thank you's".

Featuring Boston....these are embossed in red...entering at Addicted to CAS #142: Masculine.

Featuring New York....these are embossed in silver...entering at Addicted to Stamps and More #304: CAS.

Next up is a card celebrating friendship, and I am entering it at AAA Cards #121: Friendship. 

Still with me?  This card uses the 'Fast Watercolors' technique taught by Jennifer McGuire and is the challenge at Just Us Girls #453.  I am also entering it at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Distress it and Where Creativity Meets C9 #24: Anything Goes.

I used Lily by Concord & 9th and Abandoned Coral and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.

I am ending with a card made with the same stamps as my first card--Concord & 9th City Stacks.  I am definitely most obsessed with this stamp set these days.  A quicker and simpler card than my first card--black embossing and coloring with pencils.  I am entering this card at The Male Room #91: Birthday and Where Creativity Meets C9 #24: Anything Goes.

That's it for me today.  

Thanks for Visiting
