CFC#76 Kraft On, and CASE Study Challenge

Hi fellow card makers! It is time to join in on challenges again this week. For my clean and simple card, I got to use my new Fiskars Fuse Creativity System dies to make this letterpress tag for the focal point of my card. Love the CAS design of these dies! Papertrey Ink and card stock in Berry Sorbet, and the stamps are Papertrey Ink as well:Signature Greetings Two.  Hop on over to Cas-ual Fridays for the Kraft On Challenge to see the Design Team and those of us playing along!

Then head over to CASE Study Challenge Blog for this week's challenge using this card by Julia Stainton!

I was inspired by her card layout and the texture of the trim!! LOVE!!

CASE Study Challenge #113

For this card inspired by October Muse at CASE Study Challenge Blog, I used my new Hero Arts/Basic Grey Collection background stamp called Poinsettia( coordinates with the new Aspen collection). Stamped on cream background with Hero Arts Shadow ink in Sand, then stamped again and colored in with Ranger Distress Markers. The card stock is from Core'dinations line that matches the Ranger Distress Ink colors. I was really inspired by Julia Stainton's (October Muse) use of three highlighted stamped areas on her card.

 Here is Julia's inspiration card, and I love how she highlighted the stamped background. Thank you and God bless.

CFC#74, Put Your Heart Into It

Played along with Cas-ual Fridays Challenge #74, and created a mask for my Tattered Angels mist in Candy Apple Red, by tracing a chipboard heart with my Exacto knife onto copy paper. Sprayed, then splatted some watered down white paint too.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink "Thanks All Ways" set.  Super quick clean and simple card! TFL!

Case Study Challenge #112

I have always loved Julia Stainton's style, and she is the muse at Case Study Challenge Blog for the month of October. I LOVE her sample card for challenge #112!  This is my take on her lovely style.

Here is Julia's "Sew Trendy" Card!! Sew crafty!! Click on over to the Case Study Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the design team, and those of us playing along, created this week. TFL!

Take Two of CFC #72

I just wanted to try another idea that popped into my head, by using something other than a font as the yellow focal point, but keeping it similar to my new blog header. Hence take two! TFL!!
