Going to the 'Dogs'

 We are going to the 'dogs' for our Word Week with
 Lisa  as Hostess at Just Us Girls 
This is a new month and we have our February Guest
Michele Greenwood with us. Welcome!
I thought my Scottie Dog from Marianne Designs
was a good choice - a chance to make a male card again.
Of course I had to match it up with Tartan DP
(which by the way came all the way from Scotland)
This was a really easy cas card.
Starting with basic card colours
I added my tartan dp cut with a stitched die
cutting my dog out of black card stock
and mounted him on Spellbinder circle dies.
 Sentiment is SU cut from a JustRite die.
That's it!

Hope you will pop over and check out what our
February Guest Michele Greenwood
and my Talented Team Mates created.
Hope you find time to play this week and
look forward to seeing over at Just Us Girls

# Update - Going to pop this over to
Addicted to CAS for their Pets Challenge

Thanks for dropping in. Love reading your comments.

It's a Vintage/Shabby Chic/Distress with Hearts & Flowers kinda card

Hello to my Blogger Friends. I have a nice surprise for you today.
How long has it been since you saw a vintage card from me?
You can't remember can you - neither can I.
There are 2 challenges I am sending my card to  this week -
Shopping our Stash for their Day of Yore which means
Vintage/Shabby Chic/Distress. Another favourite of mine -
just don't do them often enough
and The Mod Squad for their Hearts & Flowers

(I do have a Heart here)

Here are the products I used -
Kraft cs
Collage Sheet - Pink Paislee
Scrap DP inked and distressed
 CB Heart inked
Sentiment cut from MFT stitched die
and from Inspired by Stamping
Tim Holtz Holiday Greens
(be careful not to lose them as the
ones I used are so small)
Flowers Pearls Lace and Ribbon from my stash
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Distressing around edges.

Thanks so much for popping in today.
Love reading your comments.

It's a 'Groovy Birthday Wish'

When I saw the  CAS Card Challenge
for February over at STAMPlorations
 I knew what stamp set  I just  'had to have'
It's STAMPlorations Groovy Shoes and perfect for our
Colour Twist which is 'HOT PINK'
This is my second month as Guest Designer and I am having
so much fun playing with all their fabulous products.

These are the products I used
I could have done sooooooo much more with this stamp set
but since it is a CAS Challenge I had to hold back this time.
I have been sweating on the mail man dropping my goodies
from STAMPlorations into my box
and he finally delivered and I couldn't wait to play.
I chose a super bright pink card base
then went on to colour those groovy shoes with
Tom Bow markers in different shades of pink.
I chose to back them with the stencil -
ARTplorations Broken Glass
inked up with Memento Angel Pink.
This was cut with a stitched die.

I added Glossy Accents to the brighter pink on the shoes
then Pink Kindy Glitz on the bottom, also spraying
a little pink randomly to block out a bit of white.
This was cut with a Spellbinder die so too for the pink frame.
The sentiment is also from the Groovy Shoes stamp set
inked with SU Melon Mambo.
Added a bit more bling with some pink gemstones.
Did you know
  There are even more reasons to play -
You can link up to 3 CAS cards.
 Can enter a CAS card with or without the optional color twist.
Non-STAMPlorations products are OK
 And one winner (voted by the design team)
will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store,
while the two top picks will each receive a $5 gift certificate.
If there are at least 50 entries, we'll also draw a random winner
and she gets to choose her prize -- a 3x5 stamp set
OR 2 standard size stencils
OR 1 CUTplorations word/phrase die. 
and don't forget the 20% discount code on the side bar.
What a great way to start or build up your
STAMPloration collection.
If you haven't already popped over to
Our CAS Challenge head over there now and
check out all the HOT PINK CREATIONS made by the 'Team'.
 I am sure you will want to play and
with Valentine's Day this month there's no stopping you!
See you there.
Thanks for dropping in. I really appreciate
you taking the time to check me out.
