CASE Study #45

A card from the June muse, Jill Foster, over at CASE Study:



Equals this card from me:
Supply List:
stamp sets: Stampin' Up! (Inspired by Nature, It's Your Birthday)
cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze)
ink: Stampin' Up! (Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie); Ranger (Tea Dye)
other: Stampin' Up! (pearls, twine, top note die, lattice embossing folder); Provo Craft (flower embossing folder)

I really liked the colors that Jill used on her card, so I didn't combine this with a color challenge.  For the sun, I just punched out a circle,  used both the positive and negative as masks, and used a blending tool. It was really fun to make.....

CASE Study #43, Just Add Ink #71, and CAS-ual Fridays #6



This week's card from the June muse Jill Foster for CASE Study:



Plus a color challenge from Just Add Ink:

Plus this fun challenge from CAS-ual Fridays:



Equals this card from me:

I mixed it up a little this time, and threw another challenge in the pot :) The CAS-ual Fridays challenge is tic-tac-toe, and you're suppose to pick a row to incorporate onto your card. I picked the 'buttons/die or punch/emboss' row. I used both kinds of embossing (dry and heat), although I have to admit, I'm not that great at heat embossing...at least not with black powder :)  It would probably help if I got an embossing buddy, I've been meaning to get one of those. And, the big scallop circle is the die. Everything is Stampin' Up! except for the embroidery floss and button. Anyway...

Card Patterns #117, The Play Date Cafe #84




This week's sketch from Card Patterns:



Plus a color challenge from the Play Date Cafe:


Equals this card from me:
Everything is Stampin' Up! except for the ribbon, and mulberry paper. I don't have a whole lot of products in these colors, so this was a challenging challenge :)  I have a TON of mulberry scraps leftover from some wedding invitations I did quite a few years ago, and I'm always trying to find ways to use it up.  That's all for now...

Mojo Monday #193, Color Throwdown #144


This weeks sketch from Mojo Monday :



Plus this weeks color combo from Color Throwdown :


Equals this card from me:

Everything here is Stampin' Up, except for the die (Spellbinders), embroidery floss, and buttons.  I couldn't decide which shade of orange button I liked better - so I just used them both.  That's how I come up with most of my best ideas: the inability to just decide something already :)  The stamp is super old, but one I've always liked...it's from a set called 'longstemmed' from way back in 2000. Anyway....

       TFSB!
