Addicted to CAS #116

Kel is the host for Addicted to CAS this week and she has chosen the word
I recently made two card featuring bicycles but since it's the only stamp I have with wheels I had to come up with an different way to use it again.
The cat and dog come with the SSS stamp set so I put them on the bike as the 'good friends' in the sentiment.  Everything was colored with Zigs.

We'd love to see your CAS card with wheels.  Need a refresher on what CAS means?

Check out the Design Team for inspiration and enter your card in the gallery for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate from Happy Little Stampers.


Just Us Girls #403 - Photo Week

It's my turn to host Just Us Girls and for photo week I picked what I thought was a good summer time picture.
This almost made my mouth water.    There are a number of elements you can use to make a card but I went with the watermelon.  Shh.  Here's a secret.  I didn't have any watermelon stamps to I used this as an excuse to get one.  I looked and looked and finally decided on a set from Sunny Studios.
I cut a white and gingham panel that I placed over some Desert Storm that had been embossed with a basket weave pattern.  The watermelons were colored with Zigs and the smaller one popped up.

The Design Team  and our guest designer Aileen have some wonderful inspiration for you.  Why not check them out before you get busy on your card. ;)  You may be chosen Chic of the Week and have a chance to be our guest designer in September.

CASology #258

I have a quick post and even quicker card for CASology this week.
The MFT diamond border was stamped on Soft Stone with Wet Cement.  It lacked something so I added pearl embossing powder.  This is a little better view of the shine.
A sentiment from HA and it's a great masculine card for my stash.

Thanks for dropping by.

CAS Watercolor July

I always have the best of intentions with the monthly challenges and somehow time gets away from me and I only end up making one card when I could be doing more.  I did get one done for the CAS Watercolor Challenge.

I stamped the butterfly from Gina K that was in a CP Stamp of Approval kit and picked five blue Distress Inks to color them.  The sentiment is from PB.

Getting ready to head off to the lake again.  Next year I'm getting Wifi up there. ;)

Less is More and AAA Cards Collaboration

Less is More and AAA Cards have combined for a two week challenge featuring cards on colored cardstock.  I made it easy on myself by using a card I stamped a Michele's a long time ago using MFT's All Over Roses.
They were stamped in black on Neenah Desert Storm and I used my Worn Lipstick DOXs to paint just three of the roses.  The sentiment is also from MFT.  This may not be CAS enough for either challenge but now I have another anniversary card in my stash.

Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.

CAS(E) This Sketch #230

I couldn't pass up a chance to play at CAS(E) This Sketch so here's my last minute card.
Lots of gold embossing on an image by PTI, sentiment by HA and chicken wire by MFT.  Zigs colored in the sunflower and it's all on Ripe Avocado cardstock.
Busy times mean quick posts.  I'll be back tomorrow with another one.

Thanks for dropping by.
