Time Out Challenge

Hey there. I am doing a little guest designing over on the Time Out Challenge blog today. I am always super honored to be ask to do this. Today the new challenge is posted and they are challenging us to be "PEACEFUL".

When I first saw the peaceful I think about winter snowfall. The blanket of snow outside and me all toasty inside. So I thought of a Christmas card. The word peaceful made me thing about Christmas too. Although as I am writing this the world in general could use a blanket of peace.

My first card uses the For A Child set from Unity Stamps. I stamped the image in Versafine black ink on 110 lbs, white card stock and trimmed it to 3" by 4". The mounted it to a slightly larger piece of black card stock. I used my sewing machine to stitch across the top and then mounted it to a top folding, kraft card base.

My second card started with a white card stock panel that I die cut the village scene and the greeting. Then gluing it to a kraft panel the same size and inserting the village die cut back into the cut out. I then mounted the panel to black card stock, trimming to leave a narrow boarder and using black fun foam I mounted the panel to a top folding, kraft card base.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I hope you will join us and create your own "Peaceful" card.

CASology #371: Pool

Hey all and welcome to July 2020!  Our brand new challenge over on the CASology Challenge Blog for the month of July is...

Now here again I have no pool stamps but I could just here Jennifer McGuire talk about "pool" ink. So I started by masking and stenciling some "pool" waves. Then hand cut a rescue ring from orange card stock and did a little stenciling on it with orange ink, tied on some black bakers twine and glued it to my card front. I stamped the sending prayers in Versafine black ink with the Vanilla Verbage set from Paper Smooches on a scrap of white card stock and mounted it to the card front with foam tape. Finally I mounted the panel to a white card base with fun foam tucking the end of the twine between the layers. I kept all my images to just a third of the card front to keep it CAS. 

I hope you can join the fun challenge with the Design Team over on the
