Missing You At Christmas


Time for a new challenge at Time Out. Challenge #148 is a Home Sweet Home challenge with the inspiration above.

Our Guest Designer is Angie, a wonderful designer with an ecclectic style. Do yourself a favor and visit her blog for some wonderful inspiration.

I took my inspiration from the greenery on the wall and on the night stand, and the sentiment on the wall done in white on red. I tried foiling for the first time for this creation, and was thrilled with the result of my first try. I used foil from Gina K with a stencil from Funky Fossil Designs. What a fantastic resutl! The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

Bwahaha!


Well, this is the most layered card I have made in ages, but I love it. My style has become so much more on the CAS side of things, but the current
Inspired By Table Runner Challenge
and THIS card by Her Royal Craftiness, Michele Ferguson, inspired me to take out my stash of Halloween papers and go to town. I used a variety of dies from Reverse Confetti, Lawn Fawn, Sizzix and Poppy Stamps to create this fun card. I love the inspiration!

Have A Super Day



Time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. The Code Word for ATCAS
Challenge #171 is HERO 
Jaydee is our Hostess With The Mostest!

Our Guest Designer is Trina. Trina is an incredibly talented card designer with a CAS style and mad coloring skills. Her cards are awesome. Do yourself a favor and take a stroll through her blog for some wonderful inspiration. You will be so glad you did.

To make my card, I dry embossed the MFT Rectangle Peek-a-Boo Window Die on 80# Neenah Solar White cardstock. I masked the stitched frame and created a night sky with Distress Oxide Inks also masking the full moon. I stamped the skyscraper and super hero flying in the moonlight, added some white spatters for stars, and stamped the sentiment. It will be fun to see how crafters use this code word. Thanks Jaydee, for choosing such a fun one!

Thank You



Time for a new challenge at Time Out. This time it is an IBW (Inspired By Words) challenge. The inspiration for Time Out Chalenge #147 is "Dream Big, Be Grateful, Give Love, Laugh Lots". 

We are sponsored by Uniko.
Challenge winner will receive a gift voucher for the Uniko Store.

I used 2 Uniko stamp sets for my card: Background Blocks Mid Century Modern and All Occasion Sentiments #3. I embossed the background image with the wonderfully sparkly WOW/Honey Bee Stamps Bee Kind EP, mounted it on a black panel and popped it up on my card base. I added the sentiment and that was it. I love that Mid Century Modern image - there seems to be a resurgence of interest in that interior design style these days. I also really love the font in the sentiment.

Please head over to the Time Out Challenge #147 and see what the marvelous DT has created to inspire you. Come play with us!
