CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #190 - All that Glitters

Hello, happy Friday and happy New Year!  Our first CAS-ual Fridays challenge for 2018 is "All that glitters" I find it very hard to catch all the sparkle when taking photos so you will just have to imagine how sparkly my card is!  I used the numbers from the "Flower Case Alphabet" to stamp 2018 with Kaleidacolor "Caribbean Sea" ink.  I used my MISTI so I could stamp over it again with Versamark and heat embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder. The sentiment is from "Shenanigans" stamp set and I used the border stamp from "Modern Petals" underneath.  I love that saying  "let the shenanigans begin"!  I'm a little bit addicted to the silver twine at the moment, it is a pain to tie but I think I have the hang of it now so you will see it more on my cards I'm sure!

Guest Designer for Less is More

Hello and thanks for stopping by!  I am so excited to be Guest Designing over at the Less is More challenge blog today.  This is one of my favourite challenge blogs so I was honoured to be chosen as the October winner and invited to guest design for this weeks challenge.  The theme is birds/feathers so I have used the beautiful stamp from Papertrey Ink Feather Finery on my card.  I inked up the feather with Kaleidacolor - caribbean sea ink, gave it a light spritz with water and stamped onto some water color card stock.  I used the matching die to cut the feather out and mounted it onto my top folding card base.

CAS-ual Fridays Dreaming of a White Christmas

Hello and happy Friday!  This is the last CAS-ual Fridays challenge for the year and today we are Dreaming of a white Christmas. I can only dream of a white Christmas considering I live down under in Australia.  I hope one day to visit my sister who lives in the UK at Christmas time, hopefully that day will come soon enough!  But in the meantime I will dream LOL.  My Winter Christmas stamps are limited but I managed to come up with this card using the CAS-ual Fridays Christmas Sparkle stamp set.  I have white heat embossed my sentiment and stars onto a piece of navy blue card stock and tied a piece of silver twine around the top before adhering onto a white card base.

No automatic alt text available.









If you would like the chance to win a $25 voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a  card using the theme  "Dreaming of a white Christmas" and link it up on the challenge blog here.  Michele will double the prize to $50 if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card!

Fushion Challenge - Blue Gift


Hello and happy Friday!  Today I am entering a new to me challenge over at the Fushion Card Challenge blog.

I love the inspiration photo and the sketch so I chose to create FUSHION and used both!  I love blue and silver together!  I wrapped my blue ribbon around my card stock and added some silver twine, then I stamped my sentiment onto a little tag and tied it onto the bows with another piece of silver twine.  I adhered my panel onto a top folding card base with foam squares and called it a day.



Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
