Addicted to CAS #181

Angie has chosen this for the next Addicted to CAS challenge.
There are so many ways to add texture to your cards.  I chose to use some gauze paper.
This is something I bought quite a while ago because I thought it was neat and have barely used.  I cut a strip of the gray and then added a die cut flower from SSS that was colored with Distress Inks and a blending brush. I decided to run the sentiment vertically along the side of the gauze strip.

The Design Team would like you to take a look at what they've made using texture.  They hope to inspire you to make a card for the challenge.

Just Us Girls #529 - Photo Challenge

It's officially been Spring here in the USA for a week now and we may soon see flowers pushing through the ground.  I bet Lisa was thinking about that when she chose the photo for this week's challenge at Just Us Girls.
It's easy to see what inspired me.
The Altenew tulips were placed on an MFT panel embossed with a chain link folder and then on a green card base.  I embossed a darkened scrap of the same green with a sentiment from PTI.

Want to see what the Design Team and our guest Vicky Hayes did with the photo?  Head on over to Just Us Girls.  They may inspire you to make a card and you may be our next guest.

Time Out #158

I love serendipity.  I made a card for the last Time Out challenge but didn't get it posted on time.  I made another card for one of my Design Teams and then knew it wasn't CAS at all. What I was thinking when I made it I don't know.  lol   But it just happened to be perfect for the new Time Out challenge - use purple in honor of Epilepsy Awareness.

I wanted to try a technique that Jennifer McGuire used here and started with the Altenew 'Remember This' flower on the right.  I loved it so much I did it with 'Beautiful Day' and 'Garden Treasure' and on the leaves.  I mounted them on a Fog panel that was stamped with the Dainty Swiss background in Fog ink.  The sentiment is from PB.  The twist at Time Out is friendship and I usually go with that but since this was already done I couldn't change it. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Virtual hugs to you all, especially those who suffer from epilepsy.

Inkspirational #209

Have you seen the retro photo inspiration at Inkspirational?
Isn't that wallpaper wonderful?  That being said I took my inspiration from the pillow in the chair and the vase of leaves.
I have quite the mix of companies that helped with this design.  The stencil for the background is W&W, the leaves are a combo of The Greetery and MFT, cut from green and inked with Distress Inks. The vase is a scrap of white covered with Glossy Accents and the heat embossed sentiment is from Altenew.  Both the vase and sentiment are popped up on foam.

Peace, prayers and blessings to all of you as our country faces this difficult situation.  I pray that you are all safe, healthy and following the rules to slow down the spread of the virus.

AAA Birthday #11

I originally made this card for the Time Out challenge but when I just went to enter it in their gallery the linky was closed.  I'm sad because I've had the card made for several days and didn't post it.

It does fit the challenge at AAA Birthday so I'm entering it there.
The minute I received my Altenew Canterbury Bells I had to give them a try.  Aren't they lovely?  I die cut them and placed them on a panel stamped with Altenew's Rustic Linen background. 

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you're finding lots of crafting time while we're sheltered in place.
