CASE Study Challenge #63

Good Evening Everyone

This card is for this weeks challenge at CASE Study Challenge.  Niki Estes has been October’s muse and I have loved every one of her cards.  This is her card below:

My layout is similar but I decided to go with more neutral colours as I am giving my card to someone special who has recently lost a family member.  I’m not a big fan of “with sympathy” worded cards , so I wanted mine to say “thinking of you” instead.

Thanks for taking a look.

Cardstock: Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Love Letter DSP (retired)
Ink: Black Stazon, Basic Gray
Stamp Sets: Sense of Time, Creative Elements, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Kindness Matters

Pals Paper Arts #100 & Mojo Monday #197

Hey Everyone

Pals Paper Arts are celebrating their 100th Challenge is week.  Their challenge is to use our favourite technique.  One of my favourite techniques (although I have many) is masking.  I often using this technique when I use Sense of Time so I can get some words stamped around it. I’ve also daubed and made my own flower – do they count as techniques?

The design for my card is from this weeks sketch at the Mojo Monday Challenge – Round or Square. I decided this week to make a square card.

 

Products Used:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Soft Suede DSP
Ink:Black Stazon
Stamp Sets: Sense Of Time, Frency Foliage
Other Products: Black Satin Ribbon, 5 Petal Flower Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Bird Punch, Antique Brad, Basic Pearl

Thanks for stopping by.

Mojo Monday 188

Hi All

The challenge over at Mojo Monday this week is Round or Square.  I chose square this week from the design below.  I love design challenges as all the hard work is done for you.

The colours I’ve used are Basic Black, Very Vanilla & Elegant Eggplant DSP.  I haven’t used Elegant Eggplant for ever – this has been my mission lately to re-visit colours I’d put aside when the new catalogue came out last year.

Thanks for taking a look.

Concord Workshop Make

Hey All

On Saturday I had my “day of play” by heading off to my Aunt’s house in Torquay for a workshop.  We had a great day of making cards and this was one of the cards we made.  I know, I’ve used Sense of Time again, but it’s what I’m loving at the moment.

The colours I’ve used again are basic black, concord crush and whisper white.  My upline, Pam, recently made a bookmark using Sense of Time, En Francais and Elements of Style. I loved this effect so I CASEd this look for my card.

I recently purchased the square scallop clear die for my big shot, so I wanted to give this a go.   This is the card I came up with – hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.

See ya
