CAS-ual Fridays October Release - Day 2

On to Day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays October Release.

Today, we are focusing on a super fun set called Bomb Diggity.

I sponged an ombre type background, embossed it and used Perfect Pearls for a pretty shimmering effect.

And, another sponged ombre effect in a different direction.  To get a nice black fabulous, I embossed it with black embossing powder.

Don't forget about my code to save 15%!

Reminder Post for TAGplorations Challenge #1

Have you played in the new TAGplorations Challenge yet?  This is your friendly reminder that it goes for the entire month, and you still have time to join in.  The challenge; All About Fall with an optional twist of Red, Orange and Gold.  You may use any product, but it must feature a tag.

Plus, I get to share another tag!  For this one [no twist this time],  I used the newly released Manila Tags.  I made a separate sheet of an Alcohol Inked pattern paper [see Loll's how-to video HERE], and cut out the Upper Case Alphabet letters from it.  I inlaid these letters into a kraft negative die cut.  I used the Art Edges for a small border, and adhered the Hugs Word Die.  I also cut out leaves, using Trendy Leaves 2 dies, from the alcohol sheet.  

This will make a fun bookmark for someone :).


Now its your turn.  Like I said, this is a monthly challenge so you still have lots of time to play along.  You can load up your tag HERE on the TAGplorations blog. [Feel free to subscribe so you don't miss any of the future challenges]  At month end, the team will be voting on the Top 3 tags, and winners will be announced on the blog.  First place prize is a $10 gift certificate to STAMPlorations, and the other 2 top picks will receive a $5 gift certificate.  If there are more than 50 entries, 1 player will be randomly drawn to win their choice of any CUTplorations dies worth $20!  You may enter as many times as you want, just make them separate posts for linking to the challenge.

We hope you join in!

STAMPlorations Inspirations #148

Hi all.  This week the SI Team is focusing on Dee's Artzy Impressions.  All week long, her sets will be 15% off, and by using my code STAMPGIRLVICKID, you can save an additional 20%!

For my card today, I used the beautiful Blossoms Sprays #2, along with a sentiment from Smile.

While I can't color like the "artist" stampers out here in blogland, this image works perfectly for "my" type of coloring. Plus, it's fun to color it!

Some More Challenges

I am trying to involve myself more in challenges - 1, it challenges me, and 2, I get to use other companies stuff that is collecting dust in my stamp room! ;)

So, for today, I am joining in at CAS Mix Up October Challenge; layering stencils.

For my card, I used a Heidi Swapp stencil that I have (had like forever!)  I covered this stencil, with a stencil that Loll gave me over a year ago [probably 2, as fast as time goes], to do the layering stencil technique. I then used stitched rectangles dies for my framework.  I like the way that this card stays CAS, but has a little pop with the framing.  Still qualifies for the challenge too!
I went on to create a very easy card for a new to me challenge; If You Give a Crafter a Cookie #79; photo inspiration, along with the October Craft Stamper Magazine Take It, Make It; anything goes.

Let's start with the fun cookie photo;

And, my card:
I was inspired by the colors, and the spider.  I stamped the background dots with PTI Polka Dots Basic 2, and, the web and spider are stickers I had.  A fun card, that was so easy to make :).

That's it for my Monday -- thanks challenges - it was fun!

Just Us Girls #415 - Trend Week

So,  I kind of cheated with my card.  That said,  I'm saying it is a "fake" window card. ;)

 I used acrylic for my "window" - does that work?  I hope so, cuz I'm going with it!  My ivy, and scalloped frame is from Ali Express, and the mc is Poppy Stamps.

To be honest?  I am lovin this "window" card! :)

Come on over and join in the JUGS Challenge with your window card~

Inkspirational Challenge - One Layer Card

I love making one layer cards. The challenge over at Inkspirational Challenge #145 screamed at me to join in!

I tried to make this card look 3D even though it is a one layer.  Do you think I succeeded?  I rather like it... but I can't tell.  I used Inspired By Stamping's Poinsettia stamp set.

Great challenge Inks!  Thanks :)

Playing in Global Design Project; CASEing Brian King

When I saw the challenge over at Global Design Project; CASEing Brian King, I figured I'd join in since I needed a sympathy card for our son in law. [His father passed away] I am also adding this to My Time To Craft #356; sympathy.

Here is Brian's card;

and here is my CASE;

I used the layout, I just moved the sentiment towards the bottom.  It's a perfect layout for a masculine sympathy --- just what I needed. Thanks Brian and challenge - I needed that! :)

Dare 2B Artzy Day

I'm over on the Dare 2B Artzy blog with this fun card;

I like recognizing the loss of a pet for my friends.  To me, my pets are a huge part of my family, and I think of them all like that.

Isn't he just the cutest!  He is really fun to color too.  In my case, I used Copics.

I used Puppy Talk and Pet Sympathy to make my card.

That's it for my day.  Hope you got in some crafty too~
