Just Add Ink Challenge #524

Just Add Ink has a color challenge for us this week.  Their color combo is Mint Macaron, Merry Merlot, and Rococo Rose.   I used Stampin Up's A Friend Like You set for this card.  Color details...greenery and lace are Mint Macaron, designer paper is Rococo Rose, and the buds are Merry Merlot.  The dragon flies were cut out using the die that matches this stamp set.  I decided not to add a sentiment to the outside of the card that way it can be used for any occasion.

#bethegift challenge:  Call a person today and let them know exactly why you are thankful for them

INKspirational Challenge #222 & CAS(E) this Sketch #391

 Two challenges in one card...

DAY!! That was the word prompt for the INKspirational Challenge.  I do hope your DAY is fantastic!!

I may have taken some liberties with this week's sketch from CAS(E)this Sketch...I stamped the duo of "rectangles".

I used Stampin Up's Beautiful Autumn bundle...I am loving these little leaves that punch out so easily!!  The duo of brushstrokes were stamped with Stampin Up's retired set, Work of Art. The sentiment and die are from Verve stamps.

Happy Birthday Dragon Slayer!!

I have a nephew that has a birthday coming up...if anyone can slay dragons, it is him!!  I created this card for the Dragon challenge from Cardz 4 Guyz.  I didn't have any dragon stamps so I used the seahorse from Stampin Up's Seaside Notions and created my own...what do you think?  Does it work??  I also used the Tic Tac Toe challenge board as inspiration.  I winning three in a row from their game board runs across the middle...

Alpha dies (DRAGON)

Splatter (Background stamp)

Fall (isn't that when we dress up in costumes)

#bethegift challenge:  Take someone you love out for an adventure today...give the gift of time.

Inspired By Challenge #143

The Inspired By team has given us "colors of fall" along with a sketch to  inspires us.  Now if these two don't get your creative juices flowing!! For this project I am using a Tim Holtz stamp. and die set.  I love this sketchy oak leaf.  This time of year this stamp set gets inked up quite a bit!!

Fusion Challenge

Here is my take on the Fusion challenge.  Each Fusion challenge gives us a photo and a sketch...we can do one or the other or we can FUSE them together.  My card is a fusion....I used both the sketch and the photo for my inspiration.

CASology #374

Back your bags it is time for VACATION!!  The CASology challenge has given us the cue card...VACATION.  I pulled out Stampin Up's World Traveler embossing folder for this card.  It may have been retired but I still love it and it is perfect for this vacation theme!

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #546 & Color Throwdown Challenge #612

 Another color and sketch challenge...

Like I said yesterday I love the combination of a color challenge and a sketch challenge.  The color combo for the Color Throwdown challenge (#ctd612) was light blue, aqua, and rust.  I struggled with this color combo...but I pushed through and came up with this masculine card.  There is a reason they call them challenges!!  As always the Mojo Monday (#mojomonday546)sketch challenge was a great inspiration!
#bethegift challenge:  Tell someone today exactly why you love them so they know just what they mean to you!!

Freshly Made Sketches #454 & Just Us Girls Challenge #554

Two challenges in one card...

I love pairing a sketch challenge and a color challenge...they just go so perfectly together.  Here is my take on the color challenge from Just Us Girls and the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.  The color combo from Just Us Girls was Pink/Green/Blue.  I used my acrylic block and markers to create my watercolor background strip.  Watching it dry...gazing at the colors...I got a tropical feeling!!  So out came Stampin Up's Timeless Tropical stamp set!!
#bethegift challenge:  Pay for the person behind you in the drive through today!!

TGIF Challenge #282 & Less Is More Challenge #428

Two cards for two challenges....

First card was created for the TGIF Challenge (#TGIFC282).  For this inspiration challenge I used Stampin Up's Birds & More dies for creating my wreath.  I decided that I really like the black background in the challenge photo and incorporated into my card. 

My second card was created for the Less Is More challenge (#LIM428).  Their current challenge was...Shades of Purple!  I used two shades of purple along with purple rhinestones.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #388 & Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #453

 Two cards for two challenges....

Freshly Made Sketches has a fun sketch for us this week.  I used my Kaleidoscope ink pad and brayer for creating the background for this silhouette stamp. Layering it on an embossed piece of cardstock seemed like the perfect finishing touch!!


CAS Colours & Sketches has a color challenge for us this week.  The color combo is Mango Melody, Cinnamon Cider and Cherry Cobbler.  I inked up my arcylic block with the three colors called for...spritzed it with water to create this watercolored rectangle panel for my sentiment and die cut flower.  Enamel dots seemed like the perfect way to finish off this card.          

#bethegift challenge:  Make a point to give at least 10 hugs to someone you love!
