Merry Monday #198, Muse #159 and CASology #191

I have three cards ready for last minute deadlines and so they will all be on this one post.  First up is Merry Monday.
We were to base our card on a Christmas carol and I used a PB stamp embossed in gold, with Silent Night as my sentiment.  The gold mat is some packaging I saved from my husband's cologne.

Next is Muse and the inspiration from Jenni Murray.
I went with the poppy matted in black of her lovely card.
Mine is from Sheena Douglas, colored with Inktense pencils. A sentiment from PB and a few spatters finishes it off.

Last up is my card for CASology whose cue word is 'washi'.  I'm not much of a washi person but I did win a roll along with some other items a while ago. I worked my card around it.
The washi has gold stripes so I added a gold word die and then thought it needed a little something else.  I ended up cutting a CF die from vellum and coloring on the back to tie in the washi colors. That green cs has a lovely sheen to it.

That's it from me today.  Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend.

  4. Three lovelies, Bobby! Such a lovely Christmas card; way to go with saving the cologne packaging and transforming it into a gorgeous frame. Your MUSE card: so pretty! Your washi-themed card: WOW! Delicate and pretty with the green/gold. I have no 'showable' washi; only stuff I use for tacking things down...may have to change that...
    Hugs~c

  6. Wonderful trio of cards Bobby. They are all lovely. I cannot believe you only have one roll of Washi--you must have incredible shopping discipline. Love how you used it on your CASology card this week. Thanks so much for playing along.

  10. All three are awesome Bobby. I especially like your washi card. I have a few washi tapes, but whenever I use them, they just look wrong. :) I'm washi-tape-challenged. :) I LOVE the gold stripes on the coloured card stock. And your vellum die-cut in the corner is just perfect to balance the card. xx

  11. Bobby, these three cards are lovely! While you say you aren't a washi person (me neither), I really love what you've done with it on that sympathy card! Such a subtle, elegant addition on that pistachio coloured cardstock. Very pretty! Thank you for joining us this week at CASology!

  12. Gorgeous creations! Your Christmas card is gorgeous in all of that gold! I also am not big on washi tape. I use it for taping dies down when running through my Cuttlebug :S Thanks so much for playing along with us at Merry Monday.
