CAS happy birthday

Good morning! I have a simple CAS birthday card for you today.

The stamp set is from Stampendous 'Garden Box Set'. It s is one that I haven't used often before and I like the simplicity of this card.
I used Versafine Onyx black to stamp the image and Camel watercolours to colour the images. I then added self adhesive rhinestones to add some interest.

I am posting this card on the pre-class gallery over at Online Card Classes Clean and Simple 4

Thanks so much for stopping by…
Have a great day!

Taheerah's new challenge!

I am so excited to play Taheerah's 'Cure for the Monday blues #40' challenge on her blog!

Here is the inspiration image…

And here is my take…

I had made this card way back in June for my daughters birthday, but remade it now using fun foam for the shaker.
Thanks to the foam, I love the way there are individual shakers within the words! so much fun!
the stamp and die are the 'Phraseplay' set from Paper trey Ink and the sequins are from the local bazaar!
Inks are from Memento.

Have a great day!

Playing a challenge at Winnie &Walter!

Hey everyone! 
Today I am playing a challenge at Winnie&Walter! This is a first for me as I hadn't heard of this brand till I came across some blogposts.

They have many challenges going on, and the one I am playing is the colour combo challenge with Heather.
The colour combo was white,aqua/mint,silver/grey and blue.
As Idid not have any Winnie and Walter products, I downloaded their freebie papers and using this gorgeous paper from their Christmas set. 
The cycle is from memory box dies and the sentiment is a woodblock stamp from Momenta.
For the vellum balloons I used my trusted old Carla Craft balloon punch!

Sorry, the image isn't the best…just couldn't get the lighting right with this one!
It looks a lot prettier in real life!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great evening!

Casing an awesome card

Today I have CASEd an awesome card that I came across on Pinterest. Its by Desiree Spenst and you can her awesome work  here.
Here is her card…

And here is my take…

Since I didn't have the sentiment stamp, I used individual alphabet stamps from the HeroArts 'small variety alphabet' stamp set and the 'fanciful swirl alphabet' stamp set, to create the sentiment.
The shoes are from a very old stamp set…don't have a name, sorry!
The die cut letters are cut using the Cuttlebug alphabet dies.

I made this for a friend to gift to parents of twins…I hope they liked it!
It is very tongue in cheek and cheerful!

Have a great day!

Using one stamp two ways

Hi all!
Today I made two cards…using the same stamp.

For the first card I prepared a water colour background and then stamped the flowers and the sentiment. really simple…really fast!

For the second card I stamped the flowers on white card stock, water coloured them and then cut out the flower partially so that it could hang off the edge.
I then created a panel using Tim Holtz's woodgrain layering stencil and white ink. I just love the look of that panel.I added a sentiment and put the card together using 3D  foam tape.

The sentiments are from Fiskars and the flower stamp is from Stampendous.
Inks are from Versafine and Brilliance.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a good night!
