Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

CAS-ual Fridays

Stampin’ Up! had a great set from Sale-a-bration called Patterned Occasions. I find myself reaching for this set more lately as the sentiment & image are together in one image. Ink and stamp. How simple is that?

I used the Clean & Simple Stamping sketch FTL#252, the CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC111 to use buttons and the 2nd challenge at Opposites Attract Virtual Stamp Night at Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was a cool one – use the same stamp set to make a masculine and feminine card by just changing the colors and embellishments. I knew the elephant would work great!

Stampin' Up!

I’ve started working on some Valentine’s projects using Tweety Jill‘s collage papers and stamps. Her stamps are such a great collection of vintage images that you can really have some fun with them. Here is just the start of a slew of Valentine’s projects – cards, ATC’s and tags!

Tweety JillI used the Just Add Ink #150 sketch for this card and stamped the main image using markers colored on the stamp instead of ink to meet the CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC87 this week.

 

I just think this set is adorable – from the little critters that fit inside the frame to the sayings included, the extra making set AND the postage DIE!!! LOVE IT! Stephanie at The Stamps of Life really hit a homerun with these matching sets in my opinion. 

I used the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping FTL213, the colors from the Die Cuttin Divas challenge #91 and CAS-ual Fridays CFC78 using torn edges on the washi tape.
