CAS-ual Fridays CFC147 -- Birthday Girl

It's been a while since I have been able to participate in a CAS-ual Fridays challenge and I am so excited to be able to participate in CFC147 - Birthday Girl - make a birthday card that you would send to your sister, friend, mother or other special female in your life.

My card was created by inking up an embossing folder with mint julep ink from Hero Arts. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Sassy Salutations set. I embossed the sentiment using Ranger Princess Gold. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog: Emboss It!

I created the card below for the Emboss It Challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. My background was created by inking up an embossing folder direct from ink pad (Hero Arts Fresh Peach) and then running it through an embossing folder. I think ran a darker ink pad (Hero Arts Pale Tomato) over the raised area created by the embossing folder. So fun and so many possibilities!

I had this Riley and Company stamp laying on my desk and it matched my background, so I fussy cut and added it to my card. The die cut word is from Simon Says Stamp. Thanks so much for stopping by!

CAS Mix Up May Challenge - Stamping + Heat Embossing + Your Choice

I recently found the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge and I am excited to be participating in May's challenge!

For my CAS card below, I met the challenge by stamping and heat embossing my sentiment with Ranger's Princess Gold embossing powder. My background was created using an embossing folder and a shadow ink from Hero Arts. It was a fun technique and so I am choosing dry embossing as my "your choice" option. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Lawnscaping Challenge: Calling All Critters - Entry#1 Mother's Day

I recently purchased the adorable Mom&Me set from Lawn Fawn. I knew this would be perfect for Mother's Day cards this year and had a fun time playing with the stamps and dies. I also love the Perfectly Plaid paper from lawn fawn and had to incorporate it into my cards. I stamped the owl and baby set on watercolor paper and tried my hand at watercoloring using the Prima original watercolor tin.

This image fits perfectly with this week's Lawnscaping Challenge #129 Calling All Critters. Thanks for stopping by!
