CAS369I noticed that the CAS challenge on SCS  is to feature lucky or green on your card.  Even though St. Patrick’s day is over, I thought it would be fun to do a 4 leaf clover and had the perfect saying from the “And Many More” set for the luck part!

SUO138WOW…Christmas is in THREE DAYS!!!  AMAZING!!!  But it is a Tuesday and it is time for another SUO challenge.  Our theme this time is “Happy New Year!” … what a GREAT theme!

As always there’s a bit of a story with this one.  I didn’t really have anything that said “HAPPY NEW YEARS” to me but in the new Occasions Mini there are TONS of balloons and balloon punches.  PERFECT!  Right?  Yep…but I like to work ahead when I can.  Things seem to have a habit of getting out of control around this time of year  and with my sister’s health not always being that great, being ahead on other commitments are good in case I have to pack up and head to Pittsburgh.  So..I had to come up with a ‘Plan B’.  I was trolling around Pinterest and found a really cool card and thought THAT’S IT…CIRCLES!  So this card looks NOTHING like the one that inspired me but that’s okay…I LOVE the classy black and silver look!

Here’s the details…

  • Basic Black – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Basic Black – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp greeting using Versamark and silver emboss
  • Black Glimmer paper – punch out FOUR 1 1/4″ circles, add to panel
  • Silver Foil paper – punch out FIVE 1″ circles, add to panel
  • Silver Glimmer Paper – cut out NINE 5/8″ circles (smallest circle framelit), add to panel, trim off overhang circles and then add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some of the large Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

Lighthearted Leaves

SUO130It’s time again for another SUO challenge and this time our theme is Thinking of You/Friendship.

Those are great sentiments and really easy!  I will have to say when I saw the Lighthearted Leaves set in the new Holiday Mini I didn’t think I really liked it all that much.  I ended up buying it and have to say…I’m having fun playing with it.  It is different but in a fun way!  For this challenge I wanted a simple CAS card and thought this one turned out nice.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
  • Night of Navy – 3/4 x 4 3/4, add to card front.
  • Stamp leaf in Tangelo Twist on Whisper White.  Cut out using Leaflet Framelits, add Silver Cording Trim behind the leave then add using dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting using Night of Navy.
  • Add Night of Navy Candy Dots to Leaf to finish it off.

Celebrate

SUO124It’s time for another SUO challenge and our theme this time is Stars and Stripes (and it doesn’t have to be patriotic).

I decide to make my card would of Real Red and Bermuda Bay (so sort of patriotic colors) but thought it would be good as a ‘celebrate’ card that could be used for a variety of occasions.  I though it would be good as a birthday card for someone whose birthday would be around 7/4.

Here’s the details –

  • Bermuda Bay – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, add to card front
  • Real Red – 1/4 x 4 1/4, cut 3 and add to card front.
  • Stamp greeting in Memento Black
  • Silver Glimmer, Bermuda Bay, Real Red – cut out stars using star framelits.  Add silver directly on card and the Bermuda Bay using dimensionals and Red using more dimensionals
  • Cut out another Real Red star and add to upper right.
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see which one they picked!
