Lisa's Lovely Colour Challenge at Just us Girls

It's Colour Challenge Time over at
and the Lovely Lisa is our Hostess.
Here is the gorgeous photo and colours
she chose for your inspiration.

I have had this gorgeous paper from Victoria Gardens
for a little while now
and knew it would be ideal
 to match up with this weeks colours.
I backed this with pink and basic card base.
Folded over the double sided paper to show off the flowers
which were stamped and punched with the SU Petite Petal set
EK Success small flower die
Leaves from a Sizzix leaf die
Sentiment is from Gina K Designs
Made a small incision to add my ribbon 
and finished with some rhinestones.
Don't forget to check out with the other Jugheads created
and this month's Guest Stephanie
then pop your newly made card over to
You could be our next Chic of the Week
and be in the running for our Guest Spot in April.
Hope to see you over there.

I Tried Stampin' on Tuesday

I'm trying a bit of Stampin' on Tuesday
for their Challenge this week which is A Sketch
and thought I would play my hand at the Bokeh Technique
again which is HOT at present.
I followed the Sketch pretty much but decided to cut
my background into three pieces and then
pop my Floral Image on top.
I used Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers & Aged Mahogany
for the background then sponged from the cut out circles with
Dew Drops Brilliance - Moonlight White.
The lovely stamped flower is from
Stampin' Up - Because I Care Set
and I inked it with both inks to give it a variegated look.
Added the required 3 gems in different colours and
finished with a sentiment from Gina K Designs
and crimped ribbon.
Thank You for stopping by and checking out my latest card.

A Little Bit of Red at Fashionable Stamping

One of my favourite Stampin' Up stamp sets is
Feeling Sentimental and I love creating with it.
I found the current challenge over at Fashionable Stamping
was perfect for my card. I have seen several
different ideas of using this stamp on Pinterest
and thought I would do my version of 'Spotlighting'
hence - the touch of RED.
I used black & white card stock
then inked my Darkroom Door Postcards stamp
and distressed the edges
 to back my very British Phone Box.
This was matted against the black card stock and image
was cut from Sizzix Fancy Tags.
I cut out a small piece of the second inked image
attached it to the main piece and coloured it with
Tim Holtz Festive Berries pen.
Added a bit of scoring around the edges and on the
sides of the sentiment which is from Gina K Designs
which I thought summed up my card perfectly.
I finished off with touch of Wink of Stella clear pen
on the red part of the phone box. 
Thanks for dropping in to see my post today.
All your comments are really appreciated.

Another CAS card.

Here I am with the last of my cas card
(well the ones I can blog) but I do have another
in hiding waiting for the right time hehe
I again used the Metallic Mother of Pearl card stock
Topped with some mesh I bought an age ago and
hadn't used. Goes beautifully with the cream paper.
I cut out the Leafy Swirl from Fancy That
Added a daisy flower punched twice and popped
Pearl Spray and Kaisercraft Pearl
A tiny cream bow and finished with a sentiment
from Inspired by Stamping - Fancy Labels.
I will enter this in the following challenges

As you can see I went CAS showing of what
a simple leaf spray can do
with just a little flower attached.
 No need for fussy here!
That's it for now

Some Simple Stamping

I have been dabbling in making some cas cards of late and found
a few challenges I thought fitted perfectly.
This card I am entering in the following challenges
As You Like It - Favourite CAS or Fussy and say Why
Addicted to CAS - Challenge #57 Mask It
Red Rubber Designs - Challenge #207 So Sentimental
As you can see it is very CAS
I used white and purple card stock
Masking done with Memento Eldenberry & Sweet Plum
Stamp is Perfume by Kaisercraft
Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping -
Trendy Circle Sentiments
Dabbed a little colour on the white cs.
For the As You Like it Challenge I chose CAS
and my reason for this is if you have a single stamp
that packs a punch that is all you need to give it that
'Look at Me' card.
I have a few more CAS cards made so you will
see me popping back in again real soon.
Till then Thanks for stopping by.
