CASE'ing Flowers

Hello Friends,

Today I will be throwing my hat into the ring of The Flower Challenge. There are many firsts from this post. One, I have never joined this challenge before and excited to be a part of it! Second, I have never actually CASE'ed a card before. So here is my card inspired by Therese from 'Lost in Paper', enjoy!

Above: Is my design, inspired by Below 
Therese fantastic Spring rose card!
Inspiration card- Source
______________________

I really do enjoy all the variegated color of the roses. This theme is 
shown on the inspiration card and turned out to be one of the biggest themes on my card.

I like the smaller yet brighter sentiment under the die-cut.
Eye-catching yet not intrusive. 
Challenges Entered:
The Flower Challenge: #5- CASE the Designer


Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon, but until then take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna

Total Eclipse of the Heart

Hello Everyone,

Remember that song by Bonnie Tyler back in 1983; Or am I aging myself? Anyway, for today I will be playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch. I couldn't get this sketch out of my mind. The card came instantly but needed to find the time to create it... So, here I am, ready to share it with you. Here is my card for today, enjoy!


The moon is an Altenew set called 'To the Moon'. 
The paper that it is stamped on is has a metallic sheen.
How the picture was shot looks amazingly real!!

The stars in the background were done with a spray bottle filled
with white acrylic paint and water.
I think it did a good job!
The sentiment also comes from the same set. This has become one of my favorite
stamp sets. The moon is popped up with dimensional adhesive to give it a bit of depth.
Plus, I really like the shadow it casts. 


Challenges Entered:
CAS(E) this Sketch:  CTS #209



Today is an absolutely gorgeous day. I still have yet to walk our dog, Crown. I think this is the first time since fall that I am actually looking forward to walking him. It has been cold this winter, and for me, winter has never been my friend. So why do I stay up here in Michigan? Well, it is beautiful, we have the seasons, and the winter keeps most of the bugs (at least the big ones) away. I can handle a bit of cold to keep them away... They give me the heebie-jeebies... shutter... 

Okay, well I am going to walk Crown and let you go back to enjoying your day. Take care all and thank you for stopping by today! I know we all have busy schedules and your visit is always appreciated. Take care and until next time, happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna

Cloud 9 CAS style

Hello Friends!

For today I am playing along with AAA Cards, City Crafter Challenge Blog and CAS(E) this Sketch. Love is still in the air and thought I would make this for hubby. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Count the hearts; I promise there are nine in the bunch.
However, one is a negative cutout with a single velvet heart.
This CAS card does have layers but I think they were needed
because clouds are one dimensional.
The bottom of the banner is curved to hint at some land below the clouds.
These clouds kind of remind me of The Simpsons clouds. 
 Challenges Entered:
AAA Cards: Game #83- Shape your LOVE
CAS(E) this sketch- CTS#208
City Crafter Challenge Blog: Week 349- Old Stuff, New Look!










This design is similar to a card I did awhile back. Click here to see the original design. I thought I would freshen up the design a bit by creating more white space and incorporating the CAS(E) sketch. I think it turned out well. 

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon, but until then take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna

Gnome Sweet Gnome

Hello Everyone,

Today not only marks Valentine's Day but it also marks another challenge at PINspirational. However, before I get to the challenge, I would like to share my card, enjoy!


I wanted to use limited color on this card because of our
inspirational pin which only consists of three or so colors.

I think the sentiment on the inspiration pin fits this card to a tee.
A new adventure could be a new home.
I just hope it has indoor plumbing! Or maybe not!!
Our generous sponsor provided the gnome image.
The rest of the images (exp.the sentiment) were all designed by Beccy's Place!
Our gnome was colored using Polychromo pencils.
I have to say they blend like a dream!

I really enjoy Beccy's sense of whimsy and mystical character she brings to her designs. It makes putting her single digis together so effortless. So, I guess what I am trying to say is her Etsy store is worth checking out. And if you have time, you should check out her blog. I think you will like what you see!

 Well, that should do it for me. I hope you enjoyed your stay but more importantly, I hope you join our challenge at PINspirational. Until then take care and happy stamping!


All the best,
Shawna
