CAS Watercolor, CAS Mix Up, SSS Flickr Challenges

Hi there crafty friends ~ For the past few days I've been busy in my craft room and I have two cards to play along with a few favorite challenges. First up is the CAS Mix Up July Challenge: Stamping,  Tissue Paper, and Your Choice (die cutting).

I was really inspired by a few cards that Loll made using the Metallic Tissue Paper Technique on This Card. Loll also created a video tutorial showing the various ways you can try this technique on your cards and layouts Here

The theme for this month’s challenge at the CAS Watercolor July Challenge is ‘Butterfly’ so I would like to enter this card to the gallery there as well.


My second card is for the current SSS Flickr Challenge #75 for the theme "Black and White with a Splash".

I used SSS Stacking Animals for the images and MFT banner and scalloped circle.

That's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by,

Addicted to CAS Challenge #115

Hi’s time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS

Our Sponsor is Create a Smile Stamps
Our Hostess is Ceal and she has chosen the Code Word Summer.

I was in the mood for a beach day, and really wanted to create a gentle beach scene, so I watercolored the sand and water with DI's and added a few seagulls. An anchor for a nautical element and that was it ~

We have a new Teammate at ATCAS ~ Kelli Acopan, and we are introducing her today. Stop by and say hello, if you have a chance. You won't be disappointed :)

I would also like to add this card to my dear friend Virginia’s Summer Blog Party 

Wishing you a lovely weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,

CASology Challenge #256 - Pizza

Hello again ~ I'm back to share a card I created for this week's challenge at CASology, and I LOVE the Cue Card:

Remember the Mario Brothers video game? My kids were obsessed with it! So, when I saw this chef from MFT he reminded me of Mario and I had to buy it :)

I colored the chef with Copic markers and stenciled the background with light gray. The sentiment is from SSS Funny Food and the glittery heart was in my stash from an old Mama Elephant Confetti die. I also created a stencil with the MFT oval shadow die and added the Wonky Stitched border for fun...and that was it!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
