Three R's

Hello Everyone,

For today I am be playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch. This sketch can be interrupted many different ways. Here is my interpretation, enjoy!!

Recovering from any illness or surgery can be difficult.
The clouds and raindrops represent feeling blah.
While the hearts and sentiment strip represent compassion and love.

The sentiment strip looks fantastic in bright sunny yellow.
Also, the two hearts balance out each other nicely.

I really like this dangly stamp from SU (retired).
It really gives the card a zentangle feel.
 Challenges Entered:
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS #213

Well, thank you so much for dropping in to spend time with me. I really enjoyed this project. A lot of fun to create! I will be back, so until then take care and happy stamping everyone!!

All the best,
Shawna

Foliage

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with CASology. I thought this card is very appropriate for the first day of Spring. Here is my card for today, enjoy!


The square panel is a small part of a much larger watercolor panel.
I also really enjoy the ripped texture it seems to provide balance to the design.


The foliage was stamped and heat embossed using silver powder. 
The two angles show how the leaves transform, so pretty.

Like I said above, the watercolor panel is a small part of a larger panel.
What attracted me to this section are the faint water splatters that leave a bit of texture and color to the design.

Wood

Butterfly Fairy

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today is the start of a new challenge at PINspirational!! Before I get to challenge I am sharing my card for today, enjoy!



So how did I get a digi stamp on gray paper?
Well, this is an easy one, all I did was create a gray background
using Adobe Photo Elements and then printed it out. It was that easy.
The white detail was done using white pigment ink and a stencil.

I wanted to follow the color scheme from the challenge pin.
I stayed with the dark backdrop which really allows the pinks, yellows, and oranges to pop.

Some sparkle using Wink of Stella was added to the butterfly's wings.
Just a little more magic to add to this whimsical card!






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

Fussy cutting and raising the shell features the object.

Teal Easter

Hello Friends,

For today I have an inspiration card using your MHKDesigns digital stamps and papers. MHKDesigns makes it easy to create fantastic, elegant cards. Case in point, here is my card for today, enjoy!


This one card packed a punch.
I love all the visual texture of the flowers and chocolate stenciling!
______________________________
MHKDesigns vintage images work so well with each other.
I invite you to check out her Etsy store and see for yourself
the versatility of stamp sets and the variety of digital papers we have to offer
______________________________

This card seems to be an unconventional Easter card.
Yes, but I think it is a modern and elegant design.
The halos around the flowers was done using photo editing software
The white around the stenciling was (obviously) done by hand.
They have the same effect but using different mediums to create it.

Baby Card

Hello Everyone,

I promise this is my last post for the day. I just had to get one last card for my Fab n' Funky Challenges- their theme: Baby. This is my first time entering their challenge. Fortunately for me, I made just the card for the challenge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I used a quilt-like design from patterned paper. The paper was one square on top of the other.
I decided to cut the paper up into separate blocks and placed them at an angle.
A simple stamped sentiment between two blocks. This was done intentionally
because the single word sentiments are all placed in the center of the square.
My favorite part of the card is the clothesline with four hanging onesies spelling the
baby's girl name; Ruby.
I usually don't use stickers but in this case, it was too cute not to use!
Challenges Entered:
Fab n' Funky Challenges: #340- Baby


Well, thank you so much for dropping in to spend time with me. I really enjoyed this project. A lot of fun to create! I will be back, so until then take care and happy stamping everyone!!

All the best,
Shawna
