Muse #127 Inspired-2

Today I have a couple of CAS cards to share with you.

Here’s my card. I’m going to play this card at  Muse’s Challenge #127.IMG_9772edited2

The layout for my card is a pretty close CASE of this week’s Muse’s, Joan Bardee’s, card.

I changed up the color usage a bit though. I used parts my PTI Wee Folk Kit for this card.

I am happy to report that we got lots and lots of rain here last night. We read that we were supposed to get 12-15 INCHES! Torrential! There was a storm in our area and it stayed for about 4 hours. Our yard here in Germany was beginning to remind me of our yard in Edgewood, N.M.!! We so needed that rain!!

Today, instead of the 95 F (35.2 C) at 10:50 a.m that we had on Saturday, it is currently 72 at 12:30! Thank you, LORD!

1-layer Square Happy Anniversary w/ hearts

Today I have a one-layer card to share with you. This is going to be a quick post because my husband is home today and we have a project to work on before it gets too blazing hot outside!

It’s currently 95 F (35.2 C) at 10:50 a.m.!

Here’s my card:IMG_9572edited

I used my PTI Hearts Cover Plate Die to make a mask/stencil for this card.

IMG_9567edited

I’ve had the hearts cover plate die for a while now. I really really like it! The layout of this card reminds me of this week’s Muse’s, Joan Bardee’s, card.

Many similarities here, don’t you think? Lots of white space, sentiment as the focal point, little leaves in the letters, hearts…… :).

IMG_9593edited

I also used PTI’s Stacked sentiments.  IMG_9583editedThis was the first time I’d inked up any of the Stacked Sentiments.  I think that I’m going enjoy using these over and over again. I think I might ask Santa for the dies to go with these stamps. 🙂 (I think I’ve already maxed out my birthday wish list for PTI dies!)IMG_9601edited  I’m going to play this at  One-Layer Simplicity Challenge #19, Strip Down, Muse’s Challenge #127, CASolgy’s: Week 158 Precious, LIM’s Week 235 Color: Berry Shades.

News for the Shepherds – a one layer card

CASology Cue Word for Week 141 is “News.” I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get tired of the “news”. When I saw the cue word though, what popped into my mind was how I love goods news! Speaking of good news, I can’t imagine being in the fields outside Bethlehem when the angels announced the birth of the long-awaited Messiah, Jesus.

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Here is another card that I made using one of those verses.

The angel’s news report:

I used PTI’s  Silent night stamp set for this card. I’m playing this over at CASology for their cue word: NEWS and at Merry Monday: Angels. While I don’t have an angel stamp to use, I hope that the angel’s announcement will count for the theme of this week’s challenge. I am also playing this over at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #7, for the challenge in the next two weeks, the twist is “BLUE”.

I made 3 different versions of this card and will be playing them in various places. Look here and here for the other two.
