I have a super CAS card for you today. I started by die cutting one of the dies from the Say What? Speech Bubbles Die Set from Clearly Whimsy Stamps into my card base. I then took the positive portion of the die cut and colored it with some various red Copic markers. I scored the entire card front, rounded the corners and then added some super fun and sparkly enamel dots to finish off this simple card.

I have the day off from work today so woo hoo!  I hope you are all having a most wonderful day. And as always, thanks for stopping by.

Home is where the Cat

Ever since Sandy Allnock came out with her hex chart for Copics, I've been inspired a bit to have a play with my neglected markers. I am enjoying practicing on small images. I still need a lot of work but I did have fun coloring this cute kitty.

So the stitched rectangle where my sentiment is was a bit longer than the stitched card front panel. I wanted the stitching to match up so I went ahead and cut the sentiment strip towards the right and trimmed off a portion of it. Then I placed my cute kitty over that portion.

I paired the kitten with the super fun sentiment from a PTI set.  I gave this card to my mom as her cat is notorious for leaving cat hair everywhere. :)

Wishing you a very happy last day of the first half of 2015. Crazy, huh?

Here are the Copic colors I used.

showCASe your style Challenge #18

There is a new challenge at the showCASe your style challenge blog and this time, there is a gorgeous color combo for you to use featuring some grays and blues.  I first started off by stamping one of the images from the Basic Backgrounds & Borders 2 set from Clearly Whimsy Stamps repeatedly in four different colors of ink. I used my MISTI to help me stamp repeatedly and to get a good impression. 

I then took the Happy Everything stamp set and stamped my sentiment on another die cut frame. I then made my own stitched frame by using two different stitched rectangle dies, lining them up and running them together in my Cuttlebug.  Finally, I added lots of various sequins in coordinating colors from Pretty Pink Posh.

Here are the products I used from Clearly Whimsy Stamps, linked below.

I had some fun with my distress inks again and water colored my background. I then added the black die cut butterfly frame and a sentiment from PTI. The main panel is popped up on foam tape.

Happy Friday friends. Thanks so much for stopping by today.
