Can You Case It #130 - Grateful Bunch and Layering Love

 Welcome back to another challenge from the team at Can You Case It. This week we have two super fun sketches and everyone can join in the fun this time around:

So you can either used the sketch photo as your inspiration or just make a Birthday Card. I decided to make a birthday card but using the sketch as my inspiration. Best of both worlds, and here is my card:

I'm such a sucker for a bit of water colouring and black embossing powder. I love how the embossed sentiment really pops of the card against the gorgeous ombre wash.

I have used lots of our blues and greens for this card, including our two newest colours, Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim and they are just gentle blended together with my trust Aqua painter.

I stamped the butterfly from the Grateful Bunch stamp set and then layered heaps of Wink of Stella on him. These little guys are super sparkly!! I added a few sequins around the card to tie in the dots that are in the sketch and they also finished my card off perfectly.

So now it's your turn and I can't wait to see which of the two ideas you decided to do. Oh and don't forget to leave some blog love to the rest of the team, we always love hearing from you all!!

Happy Crafting,

Global Design Project #45 - Sweet Cupcake

So last night I was cutting and planning for my class today and I realised I was a card short!! I didn't have an idea leap out at me so I took myself off to the internet to check out some of my favorite Challenge blogs to look for inspiration. As soon as I saw the colour challenge at the Global Design Project I knew I had found the one:
Now even though Melon Mambo isn't a colour I use that much, I instantly had an idea for a card and so I thought I would tie the colours in with it:

 I'm totally loving this little number and it's even better that it came together perfectly which, let me tell you, never happens.

I've seen lots of the different styles of the Z card but have never actually tried it out and I really love this little fancy fold. It's super easy to make and still looks like it took a long time to make.

The Pop of Pink patterned paper was the perfect choice for this challenge too and I of course had to tie in my cupcake with the colours too. It's hard to see in the photo but I also added Wink of Stella to the darker shades of the Cupcake frosting, which is super sparkly in real life.

Well that's it for me. A big thank you to the talented DT's for the amazing inspiration this week and  make sure you pop over and have a look yourself!!

Happy Crafting,

Can You Case It #129 Colour Challenge - Time of Year

And so we come to the end of the school holidays. Next week I'm back to bus pick ups, school lunches and running around after everyone... actually not much different to this week!!

But it does mean I get a little more time to craft, which is always a good thing and talking about craft lets check out this weeks challenge from Can You Case It:

Who knew pink and blue looked so good together!! The Design Team have come up with some amazing cards this week and I really hope you pop over and leave a little bit of blog love for them. My card this week is using the Hostess only set called Time of Year:

This stamp set is gorgeous and I just love the font and size of the main sentiment. I paired it with the flowers from the Jar of Love stamp in the challenge colours.

I mounted sentiment panel onto some of our new metallic patterned window sheets. The pack contains three different patterns and one side is gold while the other is silver. I can't wait to use them for Christmas cards!!

So while life gets back to normal for most families, why not find a bit of time to take part in our challenge this week. I would love to see what you come up with!!

Happy Crafting,
