CTS #107

Today's card is for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge #107, a little liberal take. :)

I started with a Primitive Cream card base and added an embossed panel. I die-cut two Stitched Rounded Rectangle panels from Wild Cherry CS and White CS. The upper part of the white panel was trimmed off, and I stamped a patterned border, which is from On Point Borders set (Mama Elephant), in Wild Cherry and Cotton Candy (MFT).

The cute hedgehog and tiny hearts are from the Furry Affection set (Penny Black). I colored them with Copics and cut out with scissors. I added a die-cut "love" (Penny Black) and a couple of hearts.

Thank you for stopping by today!:)

Sending you love & hugs

For today's card I combined three challenges - Fleshly Made Sketch #170,  Simon Says Have a Heart Challenge, and The Card Concept #27 (I think my style is "clean and layered".)

I stamped and white embossed the Tiny Hearts Background (MFT) onto a white panel. Then I daubed Insulation Pink Dye ink (MFT) and Soft Cantaloupe ink (Hero Arts) with a ink blending tool to create a ombre background.

I trimmed and split the panel into two, and added a slip of Peanut Cluster CS (Bazzill) to the upper panel.
I created another piece of ombre paper and die-cut a rabbit from it. The woven circle panel was die-cut with a Memory Box die (I think it's already retired.).

I die-cut the "Sending" (SSS) from Sno Cone CS (MFT) three times and layered them up. I added a tiny flower sequin (SSS) (Isn't it lovely?) to the "i". The rest of the sentiment was stamped in Niagara Mist (Versa Magic).

Thank you for stopping by!

retro sketches #149

My latest purchases from Simon Says Stamp arrived a few days ago, so I just wanted to play with some of them.:)
I was inspired by the Retro Sketches #149 to create today's shaker card.

I started with a white panel and stenciled the background using Star Dust mini stencil (Memory Box), Berrylicious Dye ink (MFT), Banana Split Dye ink (MFT), and Butter Bar ink (Hero Arts).

Then I cut out a frame from the panel with Mat Stack 4 die (PTI) and Oval Stax 1 Die-namics (MFT), and adhered a piece of acetate to the oval window. I die-cut another Mat Stack 4 panel, blended Berrylicious ink and Banana Split ink, and inlaid it to the base panel.

For the confetti I mixed some sequins (Doodlebug) and star shaped glitter (Martha Stewart).
I die-cut the "wishing" from a piece of glitter paper with the Wishing die (Simon Says Stamp). The sentiment, which is from Sending and Wishing stamp set (SSS), was  stamped onto a slip of black CS and white embossed.

Thank you for stopping by!
