CAS(E) this Sketch #228


Team leader Chrissy brings you this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.
Here's Sketch #228.


And here's my take on it. Yes, butterfly-itis has returned!
 

Assorted sizes of butterflies were die cut from watercolor card stock and
ink distressed with Distress Oxide inks, then spattered with water. They 
were adhered to a Natural card base and I white embossed the sentiment. 
The card was finished off with one rounded corner and enamel dots.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted the
sketch and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, July 6th,
and as the winner, you'll be invited to guest design with us on a future sketch!

Inspired by All the Little Things #62


I'm squeezing in a card for Inspired by All the Little Things #62
because those umbrellas were calling me. That, and the team will be
taking a summer break until September, so I wanted to play along.

Here's the inspiration photo.


And here's my card.

Five umbrellas were cut from watercolor card stock and ink distressed
and spattered with water. They were overlapped and adhered to a
cream card base and finished off with the white embossed sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

MFT June Creative Construction with Blueprints--Make it Masculine



Fathers, husbands, sons, and brothers--the men in your life appreciate your 
handcrafted creations too! This month, we’re celebrating them with masculine 
cards featuring Blueprints elements.

For my masculine card, I used several elements from Blueprints 25.




A stitched panel was cut from Natural card stock and adhered to a card base.
A bicycle was cut from Blu Raspberry card stock and ink distressed for
dimension. The curved piece was cut from Sour Apple card stock and ink
distressed, then adhered to the panel.

The bicycle was adhered to the card and the sentiment was white embossed
on the banner, then adhered to the card with dimensional adhesive.
The card was finished off with enamel dots.

Visit today's post at My Favorite Things to see how the rest of the team
took on the masculine challenge!

Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


It's time for the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Summer is my favorite season because of all the cold beverages we consume,
 which probably helped me attain my Gold Card status at STARBUCKS® 😋

My card features three of my favorite drinks: Iced coffee, Matcha
Frappuccino, and a Strawberries & Creme Frappuccino.



Three of  MFT's Cool Cups were ink distressed and spattered with water for the
"frosty" look. I adhered a piece of patterned paper and tucked in the straws.
The sentiment was white embossed on a strip of vellum and adhered to the card.

Huge thanks to Amy and her helpers for coordinating another successful hop!
I feel a record breaking number of entries this time--you too?
Thanks for stopping by and let's enjoy all of the wonderful inspiration!
