Cas(e) this sketch #113

Hi there!

So glad you are here to have a look at the card I made for the new challenge at Cas(e) this sketch !

Natalie's turn this week to inspire us with a sketch perfect for Springtime!

All the cutting done with my Silhouette, and a stamped sentiment from Uniko studios.

Thanks so much for looking... hope to see your card in the gallery!

RIC # 79

Hi there!

So much inspiration this fortnight at the Runway inspired challenge!

Not one inspiration photo, but EIGHT! Eight fabulous dresses hot from the red carpet!

I fell in love with Reese's dress from the moment I saw it, so it wasn't a difficult decision which dress to pick.

My usual take on the challenge is serious... literally... but this time I decided to have some fun.
The black and white made me think "dalmatian" but since there are no spots involved, I colored the puppy's one ear in black, inspired by the black panels across the dress. Don't you think the puppy's lines mimic Reese's curves ? And of course, who can ignore the fabulous red carpet !?

A bit of glossy accents on the snout to show our puppy is healthy!

Because it's a CAS week at Addicted to stamps , I am adding my link there too!                                                   
Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Muse #107

Hi there!

Just a quick hello with a card I made with the inspiration from Vicki Dutcher at the Muse card club.

I used the same basic layout as Vicki did, but instead of using chevrons inside the panel, I used a chevron shaped panel, and added a mix of pattern (washi tape) on the inside.

A bold happy as sentiment (cut with my Silhouette and layered on vellum) to complete the card.

A card for more than one occasion as the sentiment can be completed on the inside of the card.

Vicki's card:


Thanks Vicki for the inspiration... and thank YOU for visiting me today!

Sending birthday hugs and kisses

Hi there!

I have two cards to share today , the same flower, just showcased a little different , and using different colors.

The first card is for the challenge at Less is more, to feature something that makes you happy.
I decided to use the elements and techniques in card making that makes me feel happy .

Since this is a showcase of my style, I will also enter the Birthday themed challenge at Show case my style .


Cutting  ~ using my Silhouette cameo (file from the on-line store)
Polkadots  ~ always make me smile
Color combination ~ black, white & one color with yellow being top of the list.
Sentiment ~ my own digital sentiment

         We'd love you to display our banner         

The second card is inspired by the following 2 challenges:

The paper players ~ Think Spring

Freshly made sketches  ~ Sketch

I really tried to add a piece of twine but somehow it just didn't work, hence the little twist to fit the sketch ;)


I have the sentiment to share, using 2 different sets of fonts

Thanks so much for looking!

Have a great week!

Seize the Birthday : Masculine

Hi there!

Please scroll down one post for my CAS(E) this sketch inspiration ;)

Time to have fun creating a birthday card at seize the birthday... with the optional topping of it being a card for a guy!

Perfect opportunity to add a few masculine cards to your stash !

I used the same embossing folder for embossing the 2 solid color shapes as I did to 'stamp' the middle diamond shape. I did it the same way as described HERE.

A stamped sentiment to complete the card.

Linking my card to the BIRTHDAY challenge at Uniko studio ( thanks Sandie)

I hope to see you in the Seize the birthday gallery this week!

Thanks for looking!

Mini inspired!

Hi there!

Just a very quick post today, as we are almost on our way to a James Blunt concert in Dubai tonight... so excited!

I am equally excited to share my card for this week's challenge at Casology with the cue word: mini.

Edited to add...

... I just realised that this will fit the bill for the challenge at Less is more , where the theme is: wings.

Mini in terms of size isn't something that comes to mind when I have to describe my card making style. I'd rather like to go big and bold! So I had to put my thinking cap on for this one.

On the highway this morning, I was driving behind a  RED MINI COOPER... and yay for inspiration. there and then!

I added 2 strips of black paper ... the 2 stripes Mini is famous for!

I created the cutting file (logo inspired) in my Silhouette programme, and made my own sentiment... guess the name of the font... license plate!

Here it is for you to use!

Thanks Melissa and the Casology team giving us the chance to think outside the box!

Thanks for visiting me today, and remember, inspiration is everywhere ;)
