A sketch challenge card for splitcoast SC347.

Base is poppy with Pear pizazz DSP stamped with the grass image from inspired by nature in wasabi . then a layer of pink pirouette. The flower white layer was stamped using pretty in pink craft and rose red craft ink but the stems were colored using wasabi directly on the rubber before stamping then embossing with clear EP (to make just the flowers pop a bit).

I added the wider twill tape (retired) stamped with the butterflies from Kindness Matters set and cinched it all using a vintage brad.

I then stamped a white scrap
with the butterflies and cut one out and colored it in with pool party and daffodil and adhered it using the multimono liquid glue in the center and a quick Wednesday morning card!

Lace Ribbon border card

Very simple easy to demo card. This is a case from Chanda Stehlik from Stampin Connection (demo only website).

Take whisper white - works in either direction. Take a strip of white and run it through the lace ribbon border- better to make it longer and center it after you punch it out. Use 2 way glue pen to attach 1 1/4 inch circles - here I used the 2011-2012 In color cardstock Pool party, wisteria wonder, calypso coral and lucky limeade. Then use dimensionals to separate it from the back ground white. I stamped the sentiment from Friendly phrases in Wisteria but you could have used any of the in colors. Added some crystal jewels and easy card you can whip up in no time. You can fit 5 max across the bottom. If you turn it sideways, it will fit 3 colors but it still looks good.

More ribbon border fun to follow in the coming weeks!

CAS 130

Today's CAS challenge was a sketch by Die Cut Diva that hugged the bottom and left borders - so here is my version using the Creative elements set stamped in basic grey, colored in with grey with some few added tiny blings. Really simple- I thought I would remake it for a simple wedding card- using a different sentiment of course.

Delicate Doilies emboss resist

Splitcoast challenges this week were CAS129 belated birthday and CC324 White Gray and Turquoise. I thought this simple card fit the bill perfectly.

Base card is turquoise with layer or basic gray on top with corner rounded. Take a whisper white cardstock and stamp the delicate doilies using versamark then heat emboss with white or clear EP- I then used a dauber to dab on turquoise ink all over and stamped the sentiment using the same color ink. Easy peasy take ten card.
