All Rolled Into One

Hey there. Hoping all is well in your world. I decided to push myself to roll a bunch of challenges into a simple one layer card. I started with The Stamp Markets Chunky Outline and Solid alphabet sets, then added the My Favorite Things Essential Sentiments and finally Stamplorations Beautiful you set. This was all stamped on Neenha solar white card stock. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Citrus Stripes

Hello. So I am on a serious man kick thing. Which is good because I tend to be short of manly cards and one of my favorite companies it doing two "manly" challenges.
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge is "It's A Man Thing" and the Wednesday challenge is "Masculine".
Also AAA Cards is doing a one layer with photo prompt challenge. This card it just straight forward stamping. Super simple. White, top folding card base stamped with 5 colors of dye ink. I used two stamp sets Daddy Yo 2 from Paper Smooches and Birthday Wishes from The Stamp Market using the colors from the AAA Cards photo.

I then took that one layer card, trimmed the front into a panel and mounted it with fun foam to a white card base.
Sometimes I just need to add a layer. lol.

Thank you for stopping by, Sue.

CASology #370: Father

Hey there. Welcome to a new challenge over on the CASology Challenge Blog. Today's cue will help us get a jump on those Father's Day cards we have been meaning to get stamped.

My card today is super simple to create. Just start by gathering all you Father's Day greetings together and pick four colors you think will work together. If you ever have trouble with this Pinterest has tons of color palette ideas.

Here again I started with a white top-folding card base that I stamped the images from Paper Smooches Daddy Yo 2 set. When doing this technique I always start in a corner and work out, building up the phrases and images. Below is another example of the same type of card I had stamped previously. I hope you can join us for the fun challenge.

This card was made with the same stamp set and some fab ink blending. I blended the panel then cut it in strips and rotated every other strip. Die cut the tie from the panel and embossed the greeting on vellum to wrap around the blended panel. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Father's Day Deer

Hey there! I made this card a while back but never posted it. One of my very favorite companies Simon Says Stamp is having two manly challenges and a design team call. I would be so honored if I was selected to their design team. My card started with two kraft panels that I blended dye base ink across. Then splattered with a little water and blotting off excess.

 I then stamped the images from the Modern Christmas set across the blended panel and splattered it with the nickel ink. After stamping and heat embossing the greeting on a strip of chocolate card stock I sewed it to the stamped panel that I had trimmed down. Then layered on the other blended panel and mounted to a kraft, top folding card base.

CASology #369: Wind

Hello. There is a brand new cue up on the CASology Challenge Blog today. I hope you will play along with us. Our new cue card is wind.

Todays card is a one layer birthday card. I was struggling with the wind cue and all I could think of was your breath, in some people described as wind...LOL.

 So my card started with a top-folding aqua card base that I stamped the greeting from the CAS-ual Fridays stamp set Shenanigans in navy ink. Then the candle from The Stamp Market's Birthday Wishes set in aqua and yellow ink adding a little Stickels to the flame. The wind is from an old Papertry Ink penguin set. Tada that is it. Pretty quick to recreate.

I hope you will join us for this "windy" challenge!

Coffee Wishes

Hello and happy Saturday to you. It is raining here today so it is the perfect kind of day to stay in and create!
There is a fun blog hop going on at the Coffee Loving Card Makers blog so I thought I would whip up a few coffee themed cards.

My first card started with the CASE this Sketch Challenge #373 and the SSS Wednesday recycle challenge. Using an old dictionary page I stamped and embossed the cup from the HoneyBee Stamps Coffee Break set. Then die cut the neutral rainbow from the HB Rainbow Wishes die set. Using the Sassy Coffee set from Technique Tuesday for the greeting.

 The second card uses the same set from HoneyBee Stamps with the addition of the Stamploration With Coffee greeting. Pretty straight up stamping and making with a little washi tape. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Crazy Happy...Thanks

Hey there. I hadn't stamped for a few days and had an idea that popped in my head. The card combines a ton of challenges all rolled into one card. I am in love with how it turned out. Bunches of details that still read CAS!

My card uses a ton of stamps and dies from a lot of different companies. Like a equal opportunity employer. Lol.

I was working with the sketch and color challenge over on the MFT blog and adding in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge of "We're All A Buzz". Uniko Studio Challenge this month was Anything Goes with an optional twist of Bright & Happy. I stamped and colored the front with alcohol markers. Then die cut the thanks from the front of the card. It is always a little scary to die cut when your card front is stamped and colored but I wanted the thanks to be a window that would chow the charcoal panel through. Thanks for dropping by. If you have any questions ask away I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.
Thanks again, Sue.
