Muse #129, CASology #160, and Freshly Made #200

Boy are you going to get an eyeful today.  I've been whipping up a storm in my craft room and I have one card due by 8 am tomorrow and two cards due by noon.  I'm going to put them all in one post, if you don't mind.  First up is Muse.  Here's the inspiration from Anita.


I pretty much followed her formula, changing just the details.


I used a Tim Holtz stencil with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink, Winnie & Walter word die done in SSS Slate instead of black since I thought the sentiment warranted it, and a gold dragonfly from Elizabeth Crafts.  I'm sorry about the darkness of the photos.  It's pouring rain here today.

The next card is for CASology.



This card features a Cuttlebug embossing folder, Penny Black sentiment, SSS tag die, Stormy Sky Distress Ink, and Hemptique cord.  

And last but not least, my entry into Freshly Made Sketches 200th challenge celebration.  The sketch itself is very simple and wide open to interpretation.  They are thanking us for following them and entering the challenges every week by offering prizes.  I thought I would thank them for giving us such wonderful challenges and Design Team inspiration.



I triple embossed the 'thanks' die from MFT with Liquid Platinum and then used a Fresh Squeezed stamp to give it some texture.  The Hero Arts grid is also embossed in platinum and a sentiment from PTI is embossed in white on a Dark Chocolate banner. 

Whew!  That was a lot for one post and I still have other cards done that need to be posted.  I sure hope the challenges for the coming week spark as much creativity in me as this past week has done. I'm raring to go!

Thanks for stopping by.  I love it when you do.

  14. Three lovely CAS cards, Bobby. I love your delicate version of my card. Although the word die cut is quite bold, by using it with grey and pairing with the dragonfly, it really suits the occasion. Thanks for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x
