Cloud 9 CAS style

Hello Friends!

For today I am playing along with AAA Cards and CAS(E) this Sketch. Love is still in the air and thought I would make this for hubby. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Count the hearts; I promise there are nine in the bunch.
However, one is a negative cutout with a single velvet heart.
This CAS card does have layers but I think they were needed
because clouds are one dimensional.
The bottom of the banner is curved to hint at some land below the clouds.
These clouds kind of remind me of The Simpsons clouds. 
 Challenges Entered:
AAA Cards: Game #83- Shape your LOVE
CAS(E) this sketch- CTS#208










This design is similar to a card I did awhile back. Click here to see the original design. I thought I would freshen up the design a bit by creating more white space and incorporating the CAS(E) sketch. I think it turned out well. 

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon, but until then take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna

Gnome Sweet Gnome

Hello Everyone,

Today not only marks Valentine's Day but it also marks another challenge at PINspirational. However, before I get to the challenge, I would like to share my card, enjoy!


I wanted to use limited color on this card because of our
inspirational pin which only consists of three or so colors.

I think the sentiment on the inspiration pin fits this card to a tee.
A new adventure could be a new home.
I just hope it has indoor plumbing! Or maybe not!!
Our generous sponsor provided the gnome image.
The rest of the images (exp.the sentiment) were all designed by Beccy's Place!
Our gnome was colored using Polychromo pencils.
I have to say they blend like a dream!

I really enjoy Beccy's sense of whimsy and mystical character she brings to her designs. It makes putting her single digis together so effortless. So, I guess what I am trying to say is her Etsy store is worth checking out. And if you have time, you should check out her blog. I think you will like what you see!

 Well, that should do it for me. I hope you enjoyed your stay but more importantly, I hope you join our challenge at PINspirational. Until then take care and happy stamping!


All the best,
Shawna

Blushing Bride

Hello Friends,

Tis' the season for love and romance. So, in response, I will be playing along with The Card Concept and Addicted to Stamps Challenge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I just received this dress stamp and had to try it out.
Embossed in white and then used a water based brush marker
and an aqua pen to blend it out.
Along with the dress, I really adore the background of this card.
The words on the card is everything a wedding should be.
The floral touch I thought was fabulous by keeping the focal point on the dress.
I wanted the dress to look dimensional by highlighting
the folds of the fabric. I fussy cut around the dress and popped it with dimensionals.
By doing this it gave even more dimension to the card.
Challenges Entered:
The Card Concept: CC#66- Love and Romance
Addicted to Stamps: #131- Love

 
Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon, but until then take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna

Hoppy Bunnies

Hello Crafty Friends

Hello again, and welcome to our second release set from MHKDesigns! This next set of digital stamps and sentiments are too cute and just in time for spring! Here is my card for today, enjoy!



A CAS design showing the partial image from the set.
But don't worry, all bunnies are present!
I thought that leaving a neutral color palette would make it look more natural.

Using the scallops behind the card is a good surprise for the recipient.

Left/Below: The sentiment is intruding into the rabbit scene but it seems to balance the card. I tried to place the sentiment other places but this seemed to the best fit. Right/Bottom: I colored the rabbit and bunnies with polychromo colored pencils. The verdict is still out whether I like them better than my wax-based PrismaColors.
