All Kinds of Weather

This card was inspired by this week’s MIM #208 Ombre Stamping with Laurie.

I used a stamp from PTI’s Blue Skies to stamp this design. The sentiment is from the same set. I also used a stamp from PTI’s Polka Dot Basics II.

I’m also playing over at Curtain Call:Beginnings and One Layer Simplicity Challenge 15: Blowin’ in the Wind and SSS’s “A” is for…. (All kinds of weather). I made another card inspired by this MIM. You can check it out here.

Silver Butterfiles

Today I have another CAS(E) this Sketch #117 inspired card to share with you.

I used some of my smooshed water color paper, punched out the butterflies, sponged Versamark through the stencil and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The sentiment is from PTI’s Swoosh Sentiment set. I’m also playing this over at SSS’s Wednesday Challenge: Birthday.

I used some of my smooshed water color paper and then added some punched vellum butterflies and a vellum frame. Then I die cut the sentiment out of some more of the same watercolor paper.

Hearty Watercolor

Today I have another card  for Virginia’s ViewChallenge #14: Cards with Layers and Dimension.

IMG_3008edited IMG_3011edited

For this card, I die cut the sentiment out of some of my smooshed watercolor paper, then dry embossed the hearts and finally pieced in a white”Grateful”.  For the card base itself, I made a stencil, sponged on some VersaMark and then heat embossed the hearts with clear embossing powder. I popped up the panel with some foam tape. I’m going to try palying this over at both HLS’s Challenges.

This is still fairly CAS, but has lots of layers at the same time.

I think this card demonstrates what my heart’s “Attitude” should be, even though I’m currently going through a trial. So, I’ll play this over at SSS’s Monday Challenge” “A” is for (Attitude).
