Topsy Turvy Celebrations

CASologyDo you ever make cards from just finished pieces sitting on your desk?  I actually tend to do that A LOT!!!!  I’m always surprised (and really…if you saw my desk you would know I shouldn’t be) when I can do a challenge card with just finished objects sitting on my desk!  LOL!!!

Well…this is one of ‘those’ kind of cards and I was able to make this CUTE card for the CASology challenge this week with the theme ‘ROYAL”.  Yep…I think this is ROYAL!

CASology Winner Wk 45

WOOO HOOO!!!  My card was picked as the winner this week.  How very cool is THAT!

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and added to the card base using dimensionals.  Next I took half of a 2 1/2 Daffodil Delight Chevron circle and added to the card.  Next up I had a the Basic Black banner with the word Celebrate! embossed in Whisper White so I added that.  And yep…I had the crown embossed in silver and already cut out and ready to go so I added that using dimensionals then I added some Jumbo Rhinestones and some Basic Rhinestones to finish off the card.

How FUN is that!  Took really no time at all and used stuff sitting “on the top of my desk”!

A Round Array

CCMC253Happy Thursday Everyone!  I hope you are ready for a fun sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!  It’s one of the simple ones that you can do just so much with!

The base of the card is Daffodil Delight.  Next I took the Daffodil Chevron print from Parker’s Prints, layered onto Basic Grey and added to the card front.  I took a piece of Whisper White, cut into a banner, added a thinner, longer Basic Grey banner behind it, tied a piece of the Basic Grey Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon around it then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the flower using versmark on vellum cardstock, white embossed and punched using the Blossom Punch and layered onto a Daffodil Delight Blossom Punch.  The center of the flower starts with the Designer Build a Brad, then the Round Array first stamp in Basic Grey on Daffodil Delight then punched with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle punch then on Whisper White, cut out and added.  The brad is added to the flower then the flower added to the banner using dimensionals.

So…looking for a fun challenge to join?  Then check us out!  Head on over to Create with Connie and Mary to see the wonderful designs from the team and then join us!
