Hello Card Making Friends!

Hope this day finds you well.

Kimberly provided us a beautiful wreath inspiration.  My rendition includes colors, bird, berries, ribbon, sentiment. The wreath and ribbon were die-cut from three alcohol ink blended panels - green and blue for the wreath and light red tone for the ribbon. A few custom colored gem 'berries' were added for sparkle.

Time Out - Hello There

Greetings!

Time Out Challenges #83 features Hannelie as the CASE designer. We are provided the privilege of CASEing her card ... With Our Own Twist. Her cards are so inspiring and swoon-worthy. I've included the color hues, die-cuts, black and white flower. My rendition includes a water-color/smoosh panel laid beneath a snow slopes die cut, then die-cut again using a stitched frame die. Three of the frame pieces were stacked to provide additional dimension. The flower was stamped in black, and the sentiment stamped/heat embossed in white on black. A sparkly yellow enamel dot was added to the flower center, and a few randomly placed clear sequins complete the card. 

Hope your day is enjoyable ... thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.

The Flower Challenge - Feel Better Soon

Hello Everyone,

Again, playing in The Flower Challenge #8 - CASE a DT Member.  The card I created is a CASE of the card designed by Ruth Andrews.  The grey rectangle was die-cut three times from grey cardstock, glued/stacked and adhered at a slight tilt. The flowers were die-cut from card stock that had been smooshed with various yellow colors of Distress Inks. Some grey splatters were added to the flowers (I have a stamp that makes "splatters" ... no mess!!). For added interest a few sequins were randomly adhered.

Hope you're having a wonderful day.  Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.

Time Out - So Sorry ...

Hi Everyone!
 
It's flowers and "kissing" at Time Out Challenge #82... my rendition includes one flower that was kissed for a very CAS card. Periwinkle (main flower color) and red hot (background print color) were used. Just happened to have a piece of DP that matched.
Grab Our Badge! 
Although I hear that the "kissing" technique is an oldie, this was my first time trying it.
 
Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback. Hope you're having a great day.
