Peace, Love, Joy to All

Hello All,

Yesterday I finally got to make my last Christmas card. I wanted to use this die but was not sure of what design to use. Luckily a few challenges and a crafty buddy at Time Out Challenges helped inspire here.

I got the layout from the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch where they are celebrating their 200th challenge-thank you for continuing to inspire us each week.

I used the 'space' challenge at CASology also as inspiration-adding lots of white (well kraft here) to give this airy look-every element is even popped up to give more space and this die is an excallent example of how it achieve space in a CAS card.

And finally the distressed edge was inspired by this card by Stephanie.. I have never thought of using a distressed edge on CAS cards but think this really suits the rustic feel of this card-thank you Stephanie for this inspiration x

Have a good weekend my friends x

Time Out Challenges #72

Hi All,

We have a new challenge at Time Out Challenges. And this time it is our:

CASE challenge (copy and share everything)

We are so excited as this time we are CASEing the very talented Kim. I have follwed Kim for a long time now and I am always inspired by her ceeativity. Check out her blog Cupcakes, Cards and Kim. You will be amazed by her style I can assure you. I was so pleased when Kim agreed to join us and be our CASE designer for this challenge. And even happier that she gave us a Birthday card rather than an Christmas card to CASE!

Here is my take on Kim's card:

I loved the vibrant colours Kim had used plus the design and these were the 2 elements that I picked out to CASE. My fav colour combo is purple and yellow and it is no surprise that these were the 2 colours I used. I went for one layer (no surprise there!)

Here is Kim's amazing card:

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Deepti. I am sure many of you know Deepti but for those of who don't take a look at her amazing blog here. Have a browse around and I guarantee you will be inspired. Deepti has certainly inspired me for many years now.

Deepti and our DT have all CASEed Kim's card in their own special way. Take a look here and then take some TIME OUT and craft with us.

AAA Cards #79

Hi All

I hope you are having a fun weekend.

We have a new challenge for you at AAA Cards.

We would like to see 'Clean and Simple' cards that have some silver on them.

Here is what I created:

A square card with that much loved snowflake stamp from Visible Images. I am forever using it and this time stamped it in delicata sliver ink. I then die cut a 'Joy' sentiment a number of times with the top layer being cut out of silver glitter card. This is one of my fav Christmas cards this year.

The layout is based on the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches using my snowflake as the circle.

Our sponsors for this challenge are Happy Little Stampers. The winner will get a $20 gift voucher to spend in their store.


Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Marianne. Her blog is a delight to visit-check it out here

Our DT and Marianne have made some amazing cards for you. Pop on over to AAA Cards and you will be inspired I guarantee.

Time for you to take a little break and craft with us....make those card 'Clean and Simple'!!

Purple and Silver

Hi All

When I saw the photo this week at Just Us Girls I couldn't resist joining in....I mean purple and silver was crying out my name!

A super CAS card:

I used delicata ink for the silver and used the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch for my layout. Linen embossed the card, added a few silver and purple gems and rounded the corners and finished!

I will also enter this into the 'congratulations' challenge at Addicted to CAS where they have a 4th year Birthday party going on. Congrats to Kylie and the team there.

Enjoy your week x

A CAS and soft Christmas.

Hello my crafty friends,

I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.

I got some crafting in yesterday and made this card inspired by a few challenges:

This gorgeous Nativity die was a present form the lovely Patti. I saw her use this on her blog and mentioned how much I liked it. The next thing I know it arrives in the post for me. A huge thank you Patti.

I was inspired by the 'soft' challenge at CASology this week. I wanted to use plenty of soft texture so used a base embossed card, a fabric embossed panel of cream card and then the die is actually cut from fabric. I also used the soft colour combo of white and cream-one of my favourite colour combos from CAS cards.

My layout was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
