Painted Petals

CAS317Here’s a quick and easy CAS card for you this evening!

I noticed that the CAS challenge on SCS was to use ‘bulb’ flowers on your card.  Well…I was looking through my Painted Petals set and noticed this sweet little ‘tulip’ image and thought how cute they would look sticking out of a pocket!  Super sweet and simple!

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.  Stamp stem image twice (second stamped off) using Pistachio Pudding.  Stamp tulips twice (second stamped off) using Crisp Cantaloupe.
  • Punch ‘pocket’ using the hexagon punch from the In-color DSP paper stack.  Add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Pistachio Pudding.
  • Add layer to card front using dimensionals.
  • Tie bow from Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  Add to pocket.
  • Add Basic Rhinestone to finish off.

I just love CAS cards!!!

Kinda Eclectic

CCMC346Oh…it’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  This week we have a great color challenge for you:  Wild Wasabi, Sahara Sand, Basic Black.

I really like this set but it was one of those that got ‘pushed aside’ when I got new stuff!  When I was trying to figure out a good set to use with these colors, I saw the leaves and decided it would be perfect!  And I have to say…I do like the way it turned out!

Here’s the details:

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded
  • Something Borrowed dsp – 1 3/4 x 5 1/2, Punch 5 section Scallop Edge out of Basic Black, add behind and add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 x 4 1/4 – stamp ‘sun’ in Sahara Sand, row of dots in Memento Black and greeting in Wild Wasabi.  Layer onto Basic Black 3 1/8 x 4 3/8.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp leaves twice on Whisper White using Wild Wasabi – one ‘full strength’ and one stamped off once.  Add to card front.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off

And don’t forget to head over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out what the design team did with this delightful challenge!

CCMC343Oh my…we need a little warmth and sunshine here in Ohio today!  IT…IS…FREEZING…OUT…THERE!  No seriously!  I hate winter…I really and truly HATE winter!

So I have a wonderfully happy card for you today (and tomorrow…it’s Tour de Freaks time!)  I decided to use this fun print as my inspiration for the card.  It is such a cool sketch this week.  My card is a little ‘thinner’ so my butterfly can hang over the edge and still fit in a regular sized envelope!

Here’s the details –

  • Soft Sky – 3 3/4 x 11 folded
  • Tulip print (Painted Blooms dsp) –  3 3/4 x 4 3/4.  The right side is 3 3/4.  Cut on the diagonal and add to card front.
  • Add piece of Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon to the card.
  • Stamp greeting using Momento Black
  •  Cut medium butterfly from Rose Red cardstock and add to card front – hanging over the left side edge some.
