Oh…I’m SOOOOOO excited!  I tried out for the CAS (clean and simple) design team over on SCS and this time I made it!  I tried out for this a couple times before and am so happy to have made it this time!  Over the next three days I’m going to share the cards I made for the DT search.

The theme for the first challenge was ‘back to nature’ and it needed to be an ‘encouragement’ card.  I was looking through my ‘stuff’ to try to figure out what I wanted to use and, of course, this set was sitting on the top of my desk and I thought the greeting was a perfect ‘encouragement’ greeting.  I wanted to make it bright and fun along with being encouraging so this is what I ended up with.

The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting using Basic Black and Melon Mambo.  I added this to the card front using dimensionals.  Next I made the ‘clouds’ using my Cupcake Builder punch and ran them through the Polka Dotted embossing folder before adding to the card front.  I stamped the kites in Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight, added the kite ‘strings’ stamped in Basic Grey (and yes…I was crazy enough to cut those puppies out!) and added to the card using dimensionals.  Finally I punched out the hearts from the Silver Glimmer using the smallest heart in the 3 Heart Punch and added to the kites to finish it off.

So…that was my card for round 1.  I do like this little set…alot of fun!

Happy Thursday!  Looks like I’m still up and running…yippee!  Just have to finish getting all the files transferred over and I’ll be back to normal…well, you know what I mean!  Since it is Thursday, it is time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

I have to say that although I really like the incolors that came in this year, the one I find hardest, for me, to use is Island Indigo.  I like the color but it just isn’t a ‘go to’ color like Pool Party…now THERE’S a GO TO color!  LOVE it!  So…this color challenge was good for me to pull out the Island Indigo and get creating!

The base of the card is So Saffron.  I folded a piece and ran it through the Clear Scallop Square Die and then did a full piece to layer on top.  I like the look of the full scallop all the way around.  Next I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the ‘strings’ in Basic Grey.  I layered this onto Island Indigo then added to the card base on a slight angle.  Next I made ‘clouds’ using my cupcake builder punch and Whisper White and added these to the card front.  I stamped the kites in the three challenge colors and cut out.  I stamped the kits ‘tails’ in the three colors and yes…I AM NUTS and I DID CUT THEM OUT!  I added these behind the kites then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting on Wild Wasabi using Basic Grey ink then used my Decorative Label punch (you punch it twice to make the smaller tag and added that using dimensionals.  To add just a little extra I added some Basic Rhinestones.
