Remembering Your Birthday

CAS264Oh…I was so excited with the CAS challenge this week on SCS.  The theme was to case a card in Loll’s gallery.  Loll has the CAS style down to PERFECTION and I had such a fun time time going through her gallery to find something to case.

I chose this card of Loll’s and really kept the idea of the card pretty much the same.  I did add the woodgrain dry embossing on the bottom layer and used SU stuff for the rest of it.  I think this is just a PERFECT masculine card!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, run through woodgrain embossing folder and add to card base
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting in Basic Black and add using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – 2 1/4 x 3 1/4.  Add piece of Baked Brown Sugar that has been stamped with the Woodgrain background stamp using Soft Suede ink.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Secret Garden framelit – do stem/leaves in Basic Black, add using dimensionals.

Yep…that really and truly is all that there is to this card!  And speaking of cards…

  • Kaleidoscope dsp Black/White diagonal stripe – 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 – add to card front
  • Stamp the Oh Happy Day stamp on Basic Black using Versamark ink and emboss using Melon Mambo embossing powder.  Cut out with matching framelit then add using dimensionals.

Gorgeous Grunge

SUO81The SUO challenge this time is to do a masculine card.  As I was trying to think what I had that was masculine, I thought right away of Gorgeous Grunge…LOVE THIS SET!!!  I wanted to the keep the colors pretty masculine with blues and browns and it just came together so nicely!

The base of the card is Sahara Sand.  I took a piece of Natural White – stamped the larger splash in Soft Suede, the spots in Night of Navy and the little splatter in Sahara Sand.  I added ed strips of Soft Suede to each side and added to the card front.  I ran a strip of Night of Navy through the Stylish Stripes, stamped the greeting in Night of Navy on Baked Brown Sugar, added a Natural Designer Button using Linen thread than added the strips to the card front to finish it off.

I really do like how this turned out!  Check out what the other design team members have done.

Birthday Cake

TSSC283Happy Monday!  Boy…I could have used a couple more days to my weekend… that would have been sooo nice!  I have been busy working on projects for the upcoming sessions of Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013.  I did get my Preview Project done and can’t wait to share it with you NEXT MONDAY!!!  So make sure you come back then!

But THIS Monday I have another card for Mary Jo’s Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  This one WAS a challenge and I had to think and think and think.  Finally I turned the sketch on it’s side and it worked out just right!

The base of the card is Raspberry Ripple.  I took a piece of Crumb Cake and stamped the Birthday Cake in Crumb Cake, then I stamped the greeting using Bermuda Bay and Raspberry Ripple.  I took a piece of the the balloon print and cut into 1/2″ strips, cut them into banners then added to the card front.  I layered this on a piece of Very Vanilla, tied a piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon around it the added to the card front using dimensionals.  Finally I added a couple of Basic Rhinestones to add just a little bling to it.

TSSC283As you can see I did sort of follow this sketch if you look at it sideways!  I think that’s the best part about doing sketch challenges…it gives you a place to start!  We’d love to have you play along!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Remembering Your Birthday

TSSC273Sometimes it is just so much fun to pull out an old set…especially when you can pair it with some fun NEW STUFF!!!  What a fun sketch on Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge this week!

The base of the card is Strawberry Slush.  I took the Chevron print from the 2013-2015 dsp paper pack, cut into three panels and added to the card base.  I stamped the greeting using Midnight Muse and Strawberry Slush, layered on Midnight Muse, added some of the Strawberry Slush Stretch Ruffled Ribbon then added to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped the cupcake ‘papers’ in Strawberry Slush and the bows in Midnight Muse, the sprinkles in Strawberry Slush and the Cherries in Strawberry Slush and Midnight Muse, punched with the Cupcake punch and added using dimensionals.  Finally I added some Basic Rhinestones for that little bit of bling a girl deserves!

TSSC273Okay…so I just HAD to turn the sketch this week!  But I do LOVE how it turned out!  We’d love to have you play along!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Birthday Cake

Happy Thursday everyone and we have a special Challenge for you this time for the CCMC260Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  Since convention is right around the corner, and both Connie and I are going – WOOO HOOO!!!  we are having a special 2 WEEK CHALLENGE!  But…to make it special…we have a color challenge AND a sketch challenge.  But there’s more…for the sketch challenge…you need to make it a shaped card…anything but a square or rectangle!  As you can see…I decided to do both!

I used the Oval Accents die for the Base.  I folded a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe in half then ran through the die.  I then took a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Corrdinations, ran it through the die, then ran it through the Stripes Embossing folder, sanded it then added to the card base.  I added a Calypso Coral Deco Label framelit piece using Dimensionals, then a Whisper White Oval.  I stamped the greeting of Pistachio Pudding using Basic Grey and added it and a Calypso Coral dotted banner to the card front.  I stamped the cake using Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral, cut out and added using dimensionals.  I finished it off with some Basic Rhinestones
