Color Challenge #185

As soon as I saw this week’s color combo I knew I would be using a floral stamp set.  I saw a similar card on Pinterest and I CASEd it from memory, sorry I tried to locate the original card and cannot find it to give proper credit.

UDI Color Challenge #184

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…another installment of the UDI Color Challenge.  Here is our color inspiration photo.

Color Challenge #184

For this week’s color challenge, I made a freakin’ adorable fry box.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and knew I would have to make one myself!  Check out those faux french fries, they have the candy (Smartie) in each one!  To make your own “fries”, cut your cardstock to 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ and score at every 1/2″ on the long side.

Bloomin’ Birthday

Not sure what it is lately, but I have been on a birthday making card kick!  I used an “gate fold” for this card as well as a technique called  “wax paper marbling”, seen on the right side panel of the card.  It is so simple, just take a small piece of wax paper and wad it up, dab into your ink pad and stamp the cardstock.  This is pretty self explanatory but word to the wise “use separate wax  paper “wads” for each color!”

Eclectic Birthday

Here is a super simple card that I CASEd from Jenny Peterson ~ thanks Jenny!  I originally was going to use a different card base but it didn’t look right, so it is pretty much just like Jenny’s.

UDI Color Challenge #183

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…another installment of the UDI Color Challenge.  Here is our color inspiration photo.

Color Challenge #183

This weeks color challenge was inspired by my daughter’s recent birthday.  Her favorite cake is a red velvet and we recently discovered a blue velvet cake mix made by Duncan Hines.  That is what I made for her birthday and let me tell you that it was delicious but bright blue!  It made her day and that was all that mattered!

Simple Hello

It couldn’t get any simpler than this!  This card literally took me 3 minutes (give or take) to put together.  Sometimes the quick and simple cards are the best!

Color Challenge #182

I sure hope you are not tired of seeing this stamp set yet!  This week’s color challenge is inspired (and CASED) from Jan Tinkleberg.  I was drawn to the “searchlight” effect.  I created it with a stamping sponge and some post-it notes to mask the light and dark colors.
