For You

Softly does it this week at Just Us Girls 
for our Colour Week with Cecile's choice of
Coral Light Grey and Gold.

I went CAS with floral die cuts
in the above colours
with a shadow behind the middle flower.
Added some gold inkings, sentiment
and gold bow.
Check out our Guest Fran
and the Team's colourful creations.
Will we see yours in our Gallery?
Thanks for visiting.

Spread your Wings!

 Our New Challenge over at
is all about Bees Butterflies and Dragonflies.
Vickie chose this fabulous theme
and I am sure our Gallery will be full of
all things that fly. Pick one or all three.

My background stamp - 
Libellules & Papillons from Carabelle Studios
did most of the work -  inked in black and heat embossed clear.
The background is out of my bit box using Lindy's Magicals.
I then die cut my colourful butterfly 
placing it on top of the one on the stamp.
Finishing with a torn popped sentiment
from STAMPlorations, distressed edges
and attached to white card base.
Head over and see how my Sistah's 
chose to showcase our Theme.
I'm sure you will be keen to play
and add to our Gallery.

Joy to the World

Today's post is for the New Challenge at
 Christmas Craft Creations and our Theme is
Patterned Paper

Sometimes a little scrap piece of dp is all it takes
to feature on a CAS card.
This is what I did here and simply 
heat embossed the sentiment in metallic silver.
Die cut my deer with silver glitter paper,
attaching to card base.
Head over and see what the Design Team
created with their Patterned Paper
and come join in with yours
to our Gallery.
Hope to see you there.

Another Birthday Card.

There's nothing better than spending a bit of time
in my 'playstation' on a cold drizzly day.
Here's what evolved!

There are a few challenges I will send this off to.
This is my second card for Addicted to Stamps and More

A favourite stamp I like to use for a CAS card is
Rubbernecker Watercolor Poppies #719.
This time round I went in a different direction.
Instead of heat embossing the outline  and then
water colouring I inked the solid image with
Tim's Oxide Spiced Marmalade and added a
shake of Lindy's Cuckoo Clock Cardinal
lightly misting the stamp and placing it
onto Canson Cold Pressed W/C paper
leaving it for a minute to penetrate.
I then stamped the outline with
Versafine Clair Tulip Red.
Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping
heat embossed in black.
Die cut and adhered to coloured card stock.
Finishing by attaching to card base.

Thanks for visiting. Love reading your comments.

Celebrating a Birthday at Addicted to Stamps and More

The current challenge over at 

I have a few female birthdays I need to post cards off to
and flowers never go astray do they?
Got out my Doodled Flowers Stamp Set from
Happy Little Stampers, heat embossing with
Nuvo Gold Enchantment.
Coloured with Nuvo Blue Blitz Shimmer Powder.
Die cut a leaf flourish and coloured with
Nuvo Green Parade.
Fussy cut the flowers and attached to background
embossed with Darice Henna.
Happy Die is from Heidi Swapp,
birthday stamp from above set.
Added some Nuvo Blue Lagoon Dew Drops
to the main flower.
Attached to coloured card base.
