CAS-ual Fridays 121

I love the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays this week!  The CAS-ual Friday's Challenge 121 is to use 8 of something.  This is my card:

I stamped the smallest "button" from Papertrey Ink's Bits & Buttons set eight times on a 3-inch panel.  I tried to create an ombre effect by stamping the buttons using PTI's Sweet Blush, Autumn Rose, and Scarlet Jewel inks.  I stamped the "Hello, Friend" sentiment from the Dear Lizzy Collection in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

To keep the eye moving from the sentiment, I placed loops of coordinating colored ribbon on the upper left-hand side of the square panel.

I used foam adhesive to mount my square onto the white cardstock panel, and used my score board to score a square around it.

Finally, the entire thing is mounted on a black card base.  

Well, that's it for me today.  Have a super weekend!

Paper Player's Challenge 170

Hi there.

I'm back with a quick post.  I wanted to share the card I made for Paper Player's Challenge 170.  The challenge's theme is "Wildlife."

This is my card:

I used another Birdie Brown Freebie image that I colored and cut out using my Cameo.  I adhered both images to some green polka dot paper, added some faux stitching, and a heat embossed sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) This Sketch 52

Just wanted to stop in to share the card I made for CAS(E) this Sketch #52.  Here is this week's sketch:
This my card:

I used my Cameo to cut this pennant shape out of the Christmas tree patterned paper by the Paper Studio.  Next I cut this tree from Hero Arts out of pink cardstock and covered it in pink glitter to match the pink glitter trees on the patterned paper.  I cut this banner shape out of two shades of pink cardstock and heat embossed my sentiment using white embossing powder and a stamp from a Technique Tuesday set.

I started by attaching the glitter die-cut tree onto the front of my card and tying some pink baker's twine around the card front.  I added the patterned panel using foam adhesive to get some dimension.  And I finished off the card by attaching the sentiment banner.

Thanks for stopping by today!
