Scrapy Land - Challenge 106

Hello craft friends,


Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge 106... 

With Valentines Day a few weeks away, I reached for my love theme dies and using the Impression Obsession Cupid dies I created this simple card.   



I used a chunky white glittery paper for my cupids.  Behind the cupids i used a woodgrain heart, but I really like the idea of using the Memory Box Sending Love Heart die, so I think I have to add that one to my wishlist. 
 
Thanks for stopping bye.... I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  The winners... one selected randomly and one selected by the Design Team will both receive a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.  Until next time... take care.

Impression Obsession - New Beginnings

Hello crafty friends,

The Impression Obsession challenge running until Jan 22nd is about celebrating new beginnings.  I used the Sweet Celebration stamp set for my one layer card that celebrates the start of 2019.  I first stamped the cakes and using a mask to cover them I stamped the sparklers.   I used Distress Oxide inks for all my water coloring. 



I got this stamp set (and a few others) for Christmas and I just couldn't wait to use it.

                                   

Thanks for stopping bye... wish me luck.

IO Challenge - Happy New Year

Hello crafty friends,

I'm using my design team Happy New Year card as my entry into the current Impression Obsession challenge , which has a theme of Holiday Greetings (any holiday). 


This card was a quick one to build.  I die cut my harlequin pattern onto my card base panel.  The Happy New Year is one of two dies in the Merry Christmas die set.  For this card I die cut it three times for a thicker card element. 

Thanks for stopping bye... wish me luck.

Inspiration Squad - Challenge 215

Hello crafty friends...
Welcome to CAS-ual Friday's Challenge #215.   Our theme for this challenge is ...



I have to admit I don't do a lot of dry embossing, so I created a very simple die embossed element for my card.   I die cut a tag and using the Treble Clef die, I created an embossed element on the corner of the tag.  I tied the Treble Clef die with Holiday music theme pattern paper and sentiments from the Mistletoe & Holly stamps set.  


My last card for this challenge is a simple thank you one using the "thanks" die from the Smiling die set.  This card goes out to Michele.  A simple, but heartfelt thanks for offering this newbie (me) a spot on this design team.  It's been a wonderful experience.    






Remember... 10 winning entries will be highlighted on this blog each Thursday before a new challenge is set to go live the next day.  In addition, Michele has generously offered up a $25 gift certificate to the overall winner at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.   If the chosen winner has used CAS-ual Fridays stamps and/or dies as the main focus in the card, that gift certificate will increase to $50.




Thanks for stopping bye... until next time, take care.

Inspiration Squad - Challenge 214

Hello crafty friends...
Welcome to CAS-ual Friday's Challenge #214.   Our theme for this challenge is ...




The inspiration photo made me think of ornaments, so I created a card with a large ornament.  


I created a circle ornament from white glitter paper using the Ornament Tag die.  On red and green glitter papers I stamped and die cut a few flowers and leaves from the Pretty Posies stamp and die sets.  I glued my flowers and leaves onto the white ornament die cut and glued that onto my card.  I added the "Merry" from the Merry die set and a few Nuvo drops as my finishing touches. 

Remember... 10 winning entries will be highlighted on this blog each Thursday before a new challenge is set to go live the next day.  In addition, Michele has generously offered up a $25 gift certificate to the overall winner at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.   If the chosen winner has used CAS-ual Fridays stamps and/or dies as the main focus in the card, that gift certificate will increase to $50.
