Fireworks?

FireworksHappy 4th of July everyone!  This is my second card for today so make sure you check out my Timeless Talk card here.

So…what do you do when you really, really, really want to do a challenge but don’t have the image for the ‘theme’?  IMPROVISE!!!  The CASology challenge this week is FIREWORKS and I REALLY wanted to join the fun but … well … no FIREWORKS images in my Stampin’ UP! stuff.  So I was looking at the images I DID have and thought the big flower in the Too Kind set well…LOOKED LIKED FIREWORKS!  WOOO HOOO!!!

So here’s my CAS card.  Base of the card is Whisper White.  I too another piece of Whisper White, stamped the greeting (from Remembering Your Birthday…but you could EASILY put Happy 4th of July inside!) using Midnight Muse and Real Red.  I stamped the large flower using the same colors, punched out some Silver Glimmer stars, added using dimensionals then added the panel to the card front (yes, it is to the left on purpose!) using dimensionals.  Quick and easy and DEFINITELY celebrating the 4th!

Timeless Talk

CCMC259Happy Thursday Everyone!  And welcome to the Create with  Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  This week we have a fun sketch challenge for you.

The base of the card is Basic Black and I ran it through the dotted embossing folder.  I cut out a Very Vanilla Deco Label Framelit, stamped the greeting in Basic Black and Calypso Coral, then added to the card front.  I added a strip of the music dsp from the Modern Medley pack then added a Large Scallop Basic Black piece.  Next I add a piece of Calypso Coral…for just a pop of color!  I stamped the phonograph using StazOn Jet Black, cut out and added to the card front using Dimensionals to finish it off!
