CASE study challenge #41

This is the last week with May muse Sarah Martina Parker.  I have been following and seeing a lot of her beautiful work recently. Here is her finaly card.


I really like the labels stacked together as a frame for the sentiment.  So that is my focal point of the card. I used the maroon color as the cardbase as well.  A small flower flourish stamped in angel pink on the circle and the bow tied at the lower right corner of the labels were added as my try to case Sarah's fantastic card.  Sorry for the poor picture, sun has not been cooperating. 



Thanks for stopping by.


Supplies:
Paper: Bazzill
Stamp: PTI mega mixed messages, Inkadinkado flower flourish
Ink: Momento dye ink in tuxedo black, Angel pink
Other: ribbon (JoAnn), nestabilities die, PTI die, Pin It

Flower and bird sympathy card

Quick card, quick post.  I stamped Hero Arts classic blossom in the middle with Versamark first.  Then I masked it and stamped the top and the bottom flowers.  I heat embossed with white detail embossing powder to give it a raised sheen effect.  The bird was cut out from Bazzill avlanche cardstock and sprayed with perfect pearl.  I couldn't quite capture the pearly effect on the camera.

I am entering the card for Make it Monday #16 Sympathy card and Wee Memories current challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI mega-mixed messages, Hero Arts classic blooms
Paper: Bazzill, core coordination
Ink: VersaMark ,
Embellishments: white detail embossing powder,  Ranger perfect pearl.

Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Pyrex Effect

Did you see the Tuesday Trigger picture at Moxie Fab World?  Those pyrex bowls were so lovely.  I loved the bright color combination,  smooth texture, and the simple, yet elegant birds, greeting each other.  The black color on tablecloth provided the perfect counterpoint to the brilliant colors.  I wanted to use all these elements in my card.


Here is my take.  I die cut the birds on a avlanche cardboard and mounted it on marmalade blast cardstock with 3D foam tape. The cardbase is Bazzill red devil and I heat embossed the sentiment on the card base.  I then embellished it with a die cut heart and glossy accent.

Friends to the end

I wanted to participant the current challenge at Embellish magazine -  Tags color trends challenge for awhile.  But did not get a chance to make a card until last night and did not get to post it until a few minutes before close.


I used current sketch from Mojo Mondays (192).

Here is my take.  I used two tags.  One to frame the friendship quote that printed on the cardstock, and the other one for the sentiment.  The background was stamped with Hero Arts flourish background and added some blings. I used perfect pearl mist on the frame and 3D foam tape to pop to make the frame stand out. 


I already entered a card for the challenge at Our Creative Corner this week using a 3D frame. This card seems fit the bill too.  Just saw this week's challenge at City Crafter #58 - "I've been framed".   I am entering the card for this challenge as well. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Paper: Bazzill, core coordination

Silhouette wishes

This is my take on the colors from Paper Crafts magazine Color Inspiration Challenge #5.
I am a minimalist when it comes to using black for my cards.  I usually like bright colors. I have been stewing on these color combinations for the past few days until my Eureka moment... a sihouette image in black!  I also used this week's sketch from Card Positioning Systems CPS219.  It was perfect frame for my card. 


I die cut the sihlouette and frame.  I cut two frames out and using 3D foam tape to stack them up. I love the way it frames the focal point.  I also added a couple old fashioned rolled roses as decoration.



There is a challenge at Our Creative Corner this week using a 3D frame. I am also entering the card for this challenge too.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:
Paper: Bazzill (beetle black, lily white), core coordination (orange, pink)

Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday: Some Royal Fun

When I saw the picture for this week's Tigger Tuesday, the first things I noticed were cakes and little flags.  I love flags, tags and banners. 


My card is a literal take of the picture.  I die cut four cupcakes and little flags.  The sentiment was printed on cardstock. 


Thanks for stopping by.
