Happy Hanukkah in Silver and Gold

The Paper Players challenge was to create a CAS card using silver or gold.  I used both.  This is a one layer card created with Casual Friday's "menorah" stamp which I stamped with Encore silver sparkly pigment ink.  I used the little star of David stamp from the same set to light the candles with Encore gold sparkly pigment ink.  CAS and one layer.  Easy to mass produce too!

Thanks for coming by!


Another Hanukkah that I created - this one is based on the Match This Sketch challenge:

I used the dreidel die and stamp and the star of David die from Casual Fridays and stamped the dreidels using Memento ink.  The sentiment is also from this set.  The plaid paper is digital paper that I had in my stash.

Happy Hanukkah

I finally got started on making holiday cards - I am selling them in a holiday boutique on November 2 and I have to get my stock built up quickly.  I used the CAS(E) This Sketch for my layout - turned sideways:

The dreidels and sentiment are from Casual Fridays stamps and the "swirl" to indicate the spinning is really a pond "ripple" from a PaperTrey set.  The dreidels were cut out with the companion die and colored with Copic Markers.

ATCAS #50 - Vellum Butterfly

We have a new ATCAS challenge for you hosted by our lovely Marie.  Marie chose the code word Vellum:

Our sponsor is Scribbles Designs:

And our guest designer is Hannelie aka Desert Diva.  Check out all of the inspiration by the design team on the ATCAS challenge blog and then link up your project there!

I love white on white and I love white embossing on vellum so I cased one of my cards that I made recently where I gold embossed a butterfly on vellum and I created a similar layout.  I embossed this Hero Arts butterfly with white embossing powder on vellum and used the companion Sizzix framelit die to cut it out.  I dry embossed the card front with a Lifestyle embossing folder and then used the SU! Madison embossing folder on another panel of white card stock and cut it out above the flowers.  That panel is adhered with foam tape and then I finished it off with a white satin ribbon and the butterfly.

I am submitting this card to CAS on Sunday - Emboss It.

Thanks for coming by!

Just a Note

Yesterday's SCS HYCCT1413 challenge was called Heart Song.  We were to include hearts, birds, music, etc.  I cut out my Copic colored bird from the Copics class practice sheets and popped it up on the Memory Box music die cut.  The sentiment is from a retired Mark's Finest Paper set.
I will submit this to Virginia's View Challenge - CAS cards.

Thanks for coming by!

Stamping Through the Seasons

The SCS color challenge is up to #500 and to celebrate the challenge team had 4 color combinations to play with - one for each season.   Going from top to bottom is Fall, Spring, Summer and Winter.  I used the PaperTrey "Hills" stamp series and colored each image with Copic markers.  I will be posting these in the Copics class gallery and am submitting these to Virginia's View Challenge - CAS cards.

More Copic Coloring

I'm still practicing with my Copic markers.  This card is a result of several challenges over at SCS - The HYCCT1404 - cannot use tape or other adhesive to hold the elements together on a card - I used brads;  CAS294 is to paper pierce and this is a case of the FS401 stamper - angiestamps.

The image is from Taylored Expressions and was colored with Copic markers.  I paper pierced the waves (along the top and underneath).  The banner die is from Sweet 'N Sassy.  I colored the waves and the hearts with my clear Wink of Stella pen.
