Season's Greetings

I made it!  I turned on the computer earlier this evening and nothing happened.  Nooooo!  After working on it for over an hour I got it going.  What a relief.  The first thing I did when it started was to load everything onto an external drive, just in case.  Something I had been meaning to do for some time.  So happy days we are operational again.

So here is my card for the Casology Challenge #246 - Season.


I thought this was a great cue word, lots of room for interpretation.  I loved Rachel's take on the cue word.  But as I haven't done a Christmas card for awhile I thought I would use Season's Greeting.

I stamped the Penny Black, Berry Wreath, with VersaMark onto a piece of red card.  Then I added Ranger, Platinum, embossing powder.  I did the same with a Watzing Mouse Stamp sentiment.  I covered the bottom portion of a white card with Versamark  and again used Ranger Platinum embossing powder.  Finally the red card was mounted onto the base card using foam tape.

Sail Away

Tonight I have a card for the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches #220


The stamp set is from Simon Says.  The yacht was coloured with Lyra pencils and I used Hero Arts inkpad for the sponging.  I fussy cut the yact and the waves but used Spellbinders dies for the rectangle and the "moon".  The waves and the yact were mounted on foam tape.  The rhinestones are Kaiser Craft.

I have turned the sketch upside down.  I hope that is acceptable.

Blue Thank You

Tonight's post is for CAS-ual Fridays CFC172 - Colour Challenge.  Also joining the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.


The base card was stamped with a Hero Arts background stamp and was heat embossed with Hero Arts enbossing powder.  I cut two different sized rectangles, one pink and one navy.   The navy rectangle had a Hero Arts sentiment stamped on it and heat embossed in white.  The rose stamp (a freebie from a magazine) was stamped on a navy piece of card and a white piece.  The navy piece was heat embossed and the white piece was coloured with Copic.  The coloured roses were cut out and stuck on the blue card.  The card was then put together.  Foam tape was used on the base card and the floral corner.

The weekend is upon us, so have a lovely weekend everyone.

Counting the Time

Here is my card for the Time Out Challenge #81 which is inspired by a Home Sweet Home photo.


I lightly stamped an Art Journey background stamp then I sponged over the stamping with Ranger Ink.  I stamped a clock and sentiment from the Flourishes Moments in Time set using Momento Tuxedo Black.  Hero Arts butterflies were added using Ranger ink.  This panel was then mounted onto the card using foam tape.

My inspiration was the clock and the butterflies.

Stripe

The theme for this week's Less is More Challenge #325 is Stripe


I have used the Paper Smooches stampset, Vogue Abode, for my card tonight.  I have paper pieced the furniture with Kaiser Craft design paper.  The pale blue rhinestones are also Kaiser Craft.  Just out of interest to which era do you think this furniture belongs?

Hello

Here is my card for the Casology Challenge #245 - Grow.


I coloured April, Mo's Digital Pencil image with Lyra pencils.  The design paper if from the Cream & Sugar pad by Doodlebug and the sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.


This evening we have some bad thunder storms.  I hope the rain clears up tomorrow for the ANZAC day march.

Rennie McIntosh Roses

The card tonight is for the Flower Challenge #7 - Sketch


The stamp set I have used was free with a magazine and it is coloured with Copic markers.  The roses were cut out with a round die and mounted on black card.  The border stamp was also mounted on black card and then the card was assembled.

I have a number of roses in my garden and one of my favorites is the Charles Rennie McIntosh, a David Austin rose.  It's a soft pink lilac colour.

Spring Walk

The theme for this week's Less is More Challenge #324 is SPRING WALK

The Penny Black image was coloured with Lyra pencils and a Technique Tuesday sentiment was stamped.   The card base had splatters and Doodle Bug DP added.  The panel was attached to the card base with foam squares to give some dimension to the card.  Finally I used Martha Stewart punch to make some butterflies from Doodle Bug Sugar paper and adhered them to the card.

On the Mend

Tonight's card is for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Spring Collection Inspiration

I have used a Pink Petticoat digital image and sentiment.  The sewing machine was coloured with Lyra pencils and then fussy cut.  Using a My Favorite Things die I cut a note page from some Minds Eye (I think) DP.  I mount the machine onto the note page with foam tape and in turn the note page was mounted to the card using foam tape.  It was finished of with some clear drops.

This is the inspirational mood board

I took inspiration from the green sewing machine.

Happy Birthday


Today I have a card for the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches #218

I have used  Hero Arts image which I coloured with Lyra pencil and then fussy cut.  I gave the balloon a touch of  Wink of Stella.  A small Lawn Fawn Stiched rectangle was cut and an Annabelle Stamps sentiment was stamped on it and and one corner was lightly sponged with Distress Ink.  The mouse image was adhered to the rectangle with foam tape.  A Technique Tuesday daisy die was added to the panel and the rectangle was added to the panel with foam tape.  All was added to the card base again with foam tape.  Then horror! I noticed a smudge so I added three Clear Droplets.
