CASology #267

What do you think of when you see the word "BIG"?  That's the cue word for CASology this week.  My first thought was elephant but several others also had that idea so I kept thinking.  Ocean.  What is bigger than the ocean?


I had a panel that already had some blue Distress Ink that I cut with a deckled border die from My Craft Spot (closed.)  I spritzed the seaweed from MFT's A Sea Life and lifted some of the color.  Once I stamped the sentiment in DOX Broken China I thought it needed a little more seaweed in that color.   You can barely see them but there are some bubbles coming from the fish.

Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.

Make It Monday #297

It's been a while since I've played at Make It Monday but today I have a card for their Mixed Floral challenge.  In the video, Dawn showed how to take florals from different stamp sets and combine them into one card.  I don't have a lot of PTI flower stamps but just enough to make this card.


I used Vintage Linens, Meadow Greens and the NBUS Beautiful Berries/Autumn, all with Altenew inks.

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great weekend.

Just Us Girls #412 - Photo Week

Our host Ina has us going on a tropical vacation with this photo inspiration for Just Us Girls.

Need a bigger picture?

There is a lot to see here to inspire your card.  I bet you can tell how I was inspired. ;)


I loved all that greenery and used MFT's Wild Greenery dies in various colors of green on which to perch my Birds of Paradise, colored with Zigs.  The sentiment is from the same MFT set.

We hope to see your card in the gallery this week.

Merry Monday #257

Merry Monday has a tall order for this week's challenge.  Add a tag.  That's easy.  I do tags all the time.  But you also need to include texture, bling and die cuts.  I think I came up with the perfect solution.
Tag and die cut: MFT tag die to make an ornament shaker.  Check
Texture:  Pine tree embossing folder.  Check
Bling: Stars and sequins in the shaker, plus silver ribbon and heat embossed tag holder, and the glitter paper on the ornament.  Check.
Got it all!

Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.

Th Heart Desires #16 and The Cat's Pajamas #339

It sure doesn't seem like Fall with the record high temperatures we've had lately but Fall has descended on the cardmaking world big time.  Case in point - this mood board from The Heart Desires.


And my card inspired by the upper left photo.

A little plaid blanket, grapevine wreath and pumpkin decorate the kraft panel embossed with woodgrain.  The sentiment is embossed in copper.

The Cat's Pajamas is a new challenge for me and they want a Fall or Holiday cards so my card will pay a visit there.
Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.
