Tag You're It #6

It's time for a new challenge over at Tag You're It!


Here's my take on the challenge...


I love the soft, serene look of Karin's tag, so that's the idea I went with.  I stamped images from the Flora & Fauna 2 set in Coconut Husk ink and replicated the idea of flowers on the bottom of the tag and an image off the edge like Karin's design.  I stamped the bottom of the card in the same ink to ground my card.  Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Metallic Gold Sequins were the perfect finishing touch (as always :)

Head over to Tag You're It! to see how the rest of the DT was inspired.  I hope to see you playing along.  Our challenges are open for two weeks, so you have plenty of time to play!

CAS(E) this Sketch #92

It's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!



I got a bit creative with this sketch...



I kept with the idea of something hanging down in the right corner, but rather than a pretty banner I went with the Ghost Border Die from Lil' Inkers.  The sentiment from Boo & Faces was heat embossed in white.  This card is about as CAS as it gets!

WPlus9 Release Day!

Today is the day!
All of the newly released products are available for purchase in the WPlus9 store!!

I have one more card for you today.


This card came together in minutes!  The butterfly was cut from X-Press It paper using the Butterfly Frame die and was colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment from Hand Lettered Hello, was stamped in Coconut Husk ink.  Then I added some "little bits" from the Little Bits stamp set in Old Gold and Calypso Coral inks. 

That's it from me for the WPlus9 release!  I hope you enjoy my projects :)

Have fun shopping!

CAS(E) this Sketch! #91

It's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!


I couldn't resist using the Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag here!


Since I used a bigger flag than what was illustrated in the sketch, I didn't have enough room for a sentiment on my card base.  I decided to place my sentiment ON my flag instead.  I used the Pretty Peonies stamp set by WPlus9 (these beauties will be available on 9/5/14!!) and a sentiment from Label Love by Altenew.  This is quickly becoming one of my favorite sentiment sets!  And, like just about every single card I make, I could resist finishing off my design with some Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Silver sequins in 4mm & 6mm!
