Just Us Girls #510 - Color Week

It's Color Week at Just Us Girls and Sue has chosen these colors for you to base your card on.
Color challenges are not the easiest for me and this one had me stumped for a while.  I have a TON of flower stamps and figured one of them should work to mix those colors.  And one did.

I used the Petunia stamp from WPlus9 and stamped them in Altenew inks.  My camera doesn't like photos to come out true to color but if you look closely you can tell that there are both purple and navy flowers here.  

Now it's your turn.  What do these colors inspire you to make?  Need some ideas?  Check out the Design Team and our guest Chris Dring.   They have some wonderful creations to show you.

CAS Watercolor - October and Time Out #146

CAS Watercolor is celebrating their 3rd birthday.  Boy did that time go fast although I know how  easy it is to lose track of time when you're crafting. ;)  Happy Birthday, CASW!!  For this challenge they are asking for maple leaves.  I recently made a ton of Thanksgiving cards using my one and only maple leaf from Hero Arts and Distress Ink spritzing.  I had to think what I could do differently for this challenge. 
Brushos were the answer.  I did a panel with several Fall colors, let it dry and cut the leaves.  I added them to a circle die from RC and curved a sentiment from PTI along the edge.  I picked this sentiment for two reasons.  I need some more masculine prayer cards and Time Out wants encouragement cards. 

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

CAS Mix-Up October

I wasn't sure I was going to have a card for this month's CAS Mix-Up.  I don't have a laminator and the only foil I have is some I rescued from my mother's crafts.  Then I remembered that you could use double sided tape and voila'.
foiling, stamping, my choice: heat embossing, splattering and die cutting
I covered a piece of cardstock with Scor Tape and pressed the gold Deco foil onto it.  The word die and secondary sentiment are from SSS and the stars from PTI.  The sentiment is heat embossed in pale gold and the splatters are acrylic paint.  As I was going through my Christmas card stash I found a similar card so it looks like I CASEd myself. 

Thanks for taking time from your day to drop by.

AAA Cards #151

While making another card I had all these little strips of patterned paper piled up near my paper trimmer and thought they'd make a great card.  I chose to make one for the AAA Cards and their 'use a corner' theme.  There is an optional color twist and mine is similar but not quite right.
The sentiment is a die from EbE. EZPZ  QACAS.

That's it for me today.  I hope your day is going well.
