CASE Study and Wednesday Stamp Club

I have two creations to share today. 

First up is my take on the CASE Study challenge this week.

 I used supplies from my Simon Says Stamp June card kit.  Here is my creation . . .


Dots, on dots, on dots!  I used a large multi-colored dot paper, with a vellum dot paper over it, and some enamel dots to embellish.


The picture may not do it justice!

For my second card, I was inspired by the Wednesday Stamp Club sketch . . .


I pulled out the Copics and did some paper piecing on this one.  


I love these little Pure Innocence stamps!  I gave her a real ribbon belt for her dress. 






Hope you found some time to create!

Wood Embellies for CAS-ology

This week's CAS-ology Cue Card was Wood, and I had some wood veneers in my June Simon Says Stamp Kit, so it seemed fitting. 



This card could not have been simpler!  Cardstock, pattern paper, ribbon and wood veneers with a little sentiment.  Simple! 


Love those wood veneer flowers.

Love is Everything . . . for Freshly Made Sketches

I'm sharing Card #2 made at yesterday's crop using my Simon Says Stamp June Kit, this one for Freshly Made Sketches.  I added the stamping after I got home and could find the stamp set that came with the kit.  Here is the card . . .


And here is the Freshly Made Sketch that inspired the card . . .


A fairly easy stamp, with the hardest part being matching up ink colors (and that wasn't so bad).

I'll have a few more cards posted tomorrow.

Sending Prayers & Love . . . for Mojo Monday

Pulled together some supplies to work on the Mojo Monday sketch, and here is my card . . .


Most of the supplies for this card came from the June Simon Says Stamp Card Kit, although I used the stamps that had just arrived from the July kit.  I was guilty of showing up to a crop with the June Kit minus the stamp set that came with it . . . and so we make do! 

One thing I did a little different (hard to see in the photo) is that the diagonal stripe paper on the left side has a folded edge which gives the card some dimension (see that shadow). 


 Loving these soft colors!  I have more cards to share using these same supplies, they are still being "tweaked", so stay tuned.

Just Sayin' . . . Make a Wish

Two challenges . . . two cards . . .

First, the Reverse Confetti Challenge, which was a color challenge.  Here is my card . . .
 

I covered my front panel with pattern paper and then  created panel using stamped images from the Reverse Confetti Arrows 'n Elements set and the colors from the challenge. 


 I used some clear embossing powder for my sentiment.  


My second challenge today was the Stampin' Celebration challenge.   I've not played along with this challenge before.  This one is a sketch challenge, and I loved the sketch . . .



And here is my card . . .


I used new dies and stamps from my Studio Calico kit that arrived a few weeks back.   I love the black and white images here. 


 Hmmm . . . before I added the rhinestones, this could have passed for a masculine card.  What do you think?  Masculine or not?
