CASE Study Challenge #168

A card using my Cuppa Card Kit from Studio Calico.  This is pure "Clean and Simple!".

It is my entry into CASE Study Challenge #168 - inspired by Keisha Campbell - photo below.

I mirrored the die cut circles with the speech bubble die and also used a similar muted colour palette.

The speech bubble is a die from Clearly Besotted Stamps (you said it!).

Happy Happy Happy!

This card actually makes me happy!  You know how I love the bright colours and it's a change from the autumnal colours we have going on in nature at the moment.

The pp is from the Studio Calico Cuppa 4x6 Paper Pad and it's by Paislee Press.  Love it!  I actually made two cards with the one piece.

I opened up the "you said it" speech bubble dies I got from Clearly Besotted Stamps and got stamping/die cutting.

Thanks for peeking.

Yes you are!

Supplies:  Cardstock, pp & sentiment -Studio Calico, 
frame patterned paper - One Little Bird,
bow tie embellishment - SC, versamark 
embossing ink pad, white embossing powder - Hero Arts, 
towbow roller adhesive, aqua button - Basic Grey

Firstly - Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends in the US - thinking of you all across the miles today.  Would just adore to be "giving thanks" with us all around the same table.

Very quick clean and simple card to share - I am suppose to be working on Wedding Invitations - so I took a sneaky break and made some cards.  Ooops!  Hope my SIL doesn't read this!

Love how this turned out.  Thanks for peeking.

Wishing you all a blessed day.

Supplies:  Shall we dance stamp - Lili of the Valley, Sentiment - 
SRM Sticker, die - x-cut, patterned paper - Persnikety - 
Lilybee design, metallic paper - Canson, White card blank, 
wink of stella, copics, roller adhesive 
and glossy accents.

This is a cute Lili of the Valley stamp ("shall we dance").  I partially coloured with copics and cut with a square die cut - then realigned and cut into a rectangle.  Added an SRM Sticker and some sequins.

I added some wink of stella to the dress - impossible to photograph.  Thought this would make a cute Wedding Card.

Thanks for peeking. Hope you have a great start to your week.

WMS - Nov PJ Party! - Interactive Christmas Card

So it's fun times over at Waltzingmouse Stamps as it's the monthly PJ Party!

I should have tried to do more of the challenges - but there are not enough hours in the day with a new puppy in the house (who is doing very well by the way!).  Here's a photo of him trying to sneak into a sailing bag to go sailing two weeks ago!.  I noticed he didn't try to do the same thing this morning - he obviously knew the layer of frost outside meant it was COLD!.
 Anyhow, on to my card.
Supplies:  Seasons of Love stamp set and Compliments of the Season set - 
WMS, Spellbinders heart dies, vellum - Papermania, 
blue & metallic cardstock - Canson, ultramarine stazon
 ink, wink of stella clear, blue sequins - Studio Calico, 
machine stitching and tombow roller adhesive.

I used sequins in this shaker type card (yipee! it's interactive!!!) under embossed vellum with scored metallic cardstock that I had left over from another project.  I stamped the sentiment from the Seasons of Love stamp set and die cut the little heart and then stamped it with a tiny starburst from the Compliments of the Season set.  I then added tiny dots of wink of stella to each starburst which doesn't show in this photo.

I am also putting this into the WMS Christmas Card Challenge - February - "Incorporate hearts into your card".
Just for fun
Thanks for peeking.
