Easter Blessings

This week's Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS529) is Easter Celebrations.  I hadn't planned on sharing this one but it fit the challenge.

No stamping except for the inside sentiment.  Just die cutting.  Dies are Spellbinders.  I've forgotten the name of the blue cardstock...it is StampinUp though.  The white is Papertrey Shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a blessed Easter

He is Risen!

Mojito Time - IC696

I haven't done an SCS Inspiration Challenge in years so this one was especially fun.  This week, the challenge is to choose a beach towel from the website Tesalate.  (IC696)

The towel I chose is called  - "Mojito Time"

Here's my card...CAS, quick and easy!

I loved the big tropical leaves and soft and cool summer colors on the towel.  I had this stencil in my stash.  Perfect, I think!

I sponged Papertrey Ink Leaf Green and Tim Holtz Shattered Glass on watercolor paper.  Then, I just trimmed it a little and popped the panel on 110 lb cardstock with clear dimensionals.

The Thanks sentiment is PTI Smokey Shadow offset layered over white.

Thanks for stopping by...hope you have time to play along!

FS635 - Heartfelt Thanks

It's a gray, cloudy day here...let's just call it partly sunny to look on the bright side!

This week's Featured Stamper challenge (FS635) is highlighting the work of StampinHappy aka Angie.  My goodness!  This woman is a stamping machine!

I chose this card to CASE.  According to the rules, we are to change at least 3 things.

 I kept her sketch and the floral theme.  I changed the base design, left off the panel and since I didn't have her floral image or those pretty leaves, I used what I had on hand.

I'm not sure if you can see it but I  put the tiniest bit of shimmer of the flowers.  I put a bit of Wink of Stella on my finger and tapped it over the petals.

 Full disclosure...the flowers started out to be no line watercolored...basically, I stink at it.  I used a white gel pen to outline the petals after the water color dried.

Thanks for stopping by...be sure to visit Angie's gallery and play along.

Cardstock - Neenah 110 lb base, DP from my stash
Stamps - Flowers - Wplus9 Modern Anemones, Sentiment - Penny Black
Die cuts - MFT Greenery
Ink - TH Distress Antique Linen, watercolor, Copic fineline marker for stamens
Other - Wink of Stella, clear dimensional

CAS528 - Cherry Blossoms in Springtime

Happy Monday!  That means it's time for another Clean & Simple Challenge on SplitcoastStampers.

This week the challenge is "Show me your Bud" (CAS528).   The challenge says, to show budding trees, flowers, buds pushing out of the ground with a bonus if you use spring green.  

Here's my submission.  I needed a card for a friend whose brother is facing 3 critical health challenges including needing a heart transplant, a spot on his lung, and liver damage.  What we need is a miracle.  But we know:

I had some seriously ancient Martha Stewart Cherry Blossom stickers in my stash.  Since it's cherry blossom time in Washington, DC, I thought they were appropriate for the challenge.   All remaining supplies are Papertrey Ink.

The Cardstock is PTI Linen which has such lovely texture and gave this card a softer look than bright white.

Thanks so much for dropping by and if you have a moment, please whisper a prayer for Pastor Rick.

Going to the Dogs

Happy Thursday!  The weather here is gorgeous!  We are actually having spring instead of going right into summer which sometimes happens in the sub-tropical South.

Today's card was so much fun.  I got to give my Copics some love and dressed up these pups for a
birthday par-tay.

The sentiment is heat embossed and the pups  and their balloons are popped up on dimensionals.   

The stamps are from Mama Elephant called The Dogs Woof...

Thanks for stopping by!
