'Casing' a Favourite Designer/Designers

July is a long month and we have 
Five Saturday's so you know it is our
Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls 
I am Host this week and thought it would be fun to
 pick a favourite designer/designers and
 case one of their creations.
It can be a Card/Tag Maker, Scrapbooker, 
Mixed Media Artist - Journal Page Creator 
even a Quilt Maker like Carol Mc
I so love the dedication and how long it takes
to create something so special.
We need to say who we are 'casing' and
show their make and ours.
This is a longish post so grab some refreshments.

I chose two designers - 
Cecile Ribon -a fellow designer here
who inspires me with her talents and creativity weekly
Loll Thompson who I have admired and loved her
CAS creations for a long time.

Cecile's Card

My 'Case'
I changed the colour of the background,
added gold circles, floral die inked 
Lindy's Milky Way White for some shimmer,
a snippet of ribbon, sentiment and a few splatters.
Popped onto white card base.

Loll's Card

I saw this card and knew I had THAT stamp
also gifted from a Dear Friend.
Here's my 'case'
Die cut my Spellbinder Die then coloured the background with 
Tim's Oxide Saltwater Taffy and Speckled Egg
going for lighter coloures but now think
the darkers colours show up the
wet baby wiped stencilling better.
My stencil is from ARTplorations Fairy Tale Forest
(the technique Loll used)
Heat embossed the Uniko Stamp in black
adding the same sentiment as Loll
from the same stamp set.
Added a few punched pink hearts splatters and
distressed the edges before popping 
onto white card base.
I didn't know whether I would post this 
as I am not overly happy with the result
even second time around. 

Head over to our Gallery and check out 
fabulous case creations from our Guest Fran
and my talented Team Mates.
Thank you so much Fran for sharing your
beautiful card with us this month.
Sure hope we get to see your favourite designer's casing.
Thanks for visitng

Merry! Merry!

 Today's post is for our New Challenge over at
The Sisterhood of Crafters and Lia chose our Theme
Fairy or Gnomes.

I don't have fairies flying around my craft room
so my little gnome came to the rescue for
my Christmas card.
He is from Stamping Bella and coloured with
watercolour pencils and inks. Added a bit of sparkle to his hat.
Die cuts for the angle and Merry sentiment.
Adhered to red card base.
Head over and see what my Sistah's chose to feature.
Hope to see you in our Gallery.

Sending Happy Thoughts

 I'm playing again this week over at the
Tic Tac Toe Challenge choosing from the board below
to go from
top right -  flowers
centre - yellow
botton left - ink blending

Those that know me would know that I would pick
 ink blending - it's in my DNA!
I went for a bright yellow with Nuvo 
Solar Flare Shimmer Powder for my blended background
Flowers? I chose a favourite retired SU set
Botanical Blooms
Foliage die cut from various coloured paper.
I added Lindy's Milky Way White to the flowers
for a nice shimmer and
Yellow Rose of Texas for the centre of the main flower
then a clear gemstone.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations Bloom Happy.
Tiny flowers have Daffodil Liquid Pearls in the centre.
Finished with adhering to coloured card base.

Also sending this over to 

and another one for

Happy Little Stampers
Thanks for visiting and love reading your comments.

Simply 'Make a Wish'

Wet, cold, windy weather makes for 
Great Craft Time.
Here I have made another card for

I used Lindy's Magical's for the background,
stencilling randomly the numbers from
Which Craft Do You Do (Aussie Store)
with Distress Grit Paste. Once dry
I sponged a little here and there
with Tim's Black Soot then added
Opaque Crackle Texture Paste.
Inked and heat embossed the
Happy Little Stampers Dandelion Wishes in black. 
Adhered to coloured card base.
