CAS or White Space

First of all a very warm welcome to my new followers (and thanks to Di at Pixie's Crafty Workshop for the shout out) Marit, Viv, Liz, Alexis,Shaz in Oz and Bonnie.
I hope you all enjoy visiting.

Today's card is very cas! I made a template, so that I could sponge the background with 2 colours of DI. I then stamped the wonderful birds from Stampin Up Wetlands set which a friend lent me (Thanks Carol) The message is also from the same set. I would like to enter this at Paper Artsy for White Space (2nd entry) and also a 2nd entry at Casplorations.

Feathers!

Today, I have been 'caseing' the lovely card by Donna Mikasa over at Casplorations and this is my attempt.
I used a stamp set by Hot off the press, stamping the soild feather first in various colours, then over stamping with the detailed stamp. The splats are from a Paper Artsy set.The words are stamped on a snippet of black and embossed with white detail ep. I hope you like it, I thought it was a lovely design.

Thank you

My card today follows the sketch from Stamplorations. I scored 2 diagonal lines and stamped the message between them, filling in the spaces as though it was a continuous line. Both the word and the leaf stamps are from WOW, and stamped with bundled sage DI The splatters are from Paper Artsy Hotpix HPXT01, and stamped with evergreen bough DI.

I'm back!

Sorry I have been missing for such a long time, but now I am back and getting into card making again.
A friend is turning 65 in a few weeks time, so I have made this card for her. I have used a template from  Cardmaking Paradise (link is on my sidebar) and cut it out with my Cameo.
I used a Penny Black background stamp all over the front, using Mermaid Lagoon DI. I also sponged the edges with the same ink. I added some flowers and a corner flourish cut from snippets for decoration.

age is just a number!!



I was inspired by the fabulous card by Cornelia. It is my dil's birthday today, so I made this card for her. I used a 6x6 black card base, and because I didn't have suitable number stamps, I used some silver stickers to create the falling numbers. I handcut the arrows from a scrap of shiny red card, and the bigger numbers, which were originally a sickly green were heat embossed with red ep. The strip down the side is some tape, which I thought finished off the card quite nicely.
I would like to enter this at the Stamplorations Spotlight Project
and also at Pixie's Crafty Workshop, as I used the wee snippets of red

Have a great week and thanks for visiting

Best wishes

Today's card features a beautiful Art Deco image that I have recycled from another card. I have layered it on a red mat, and then a Kraft one. I also coloured the peel-off to match. I would like to enter this into the Stamplorations February challenge.
