Hi everyone. Happy Saturday. It's our first AddictedtoCAS challenge for 2020 and working with this code word was such a pleasure! I pulled out one of my old stamp sets from Penny Black called "Bundled Up". Generally, I work with this set in Copics. However, for the last several months I have worked entirely in pencil and I am SO glad that I used this medium for this card. I stamped the impage with Stazon London Fog. It was the perfect grey to lay down just the right amount of detail, but still allow me to work with my Luminance... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. I have a card for you today using the challenge across at ShoppingOurStash. There was no way I could avoid this challenge cos I am obsessed with my Gnomies from Paper Rose Studio. I just love these little guys and for some reason, I just love Paper Piecing them! I made this card for Lou. After 25 years together, sometimes you just need to remind your man that even though he might drive us up the wall occasionally, we still love them! :-) I began by stamping the gnomie onto patterned paper and onto a piece...

HI Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's color week: So, I have to admit... Poppy Parade... is way too out there for me - and I'm not a huge fan of Rich Razzleberry. So, this was one of those challenges where I could choose to embrace the colors, or use them and not *feature* them. I choose the latter option... because I am a chicken! :-) For some reason, I am just not a strong colors person! I used a stamp set that I bought over... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I hope you all had a great weekend! I know... I know.... it's THAT stamp set and DSP again :-) But, I promise, I just can't help myself. These little bees with their matching dies and fun paper just inspire me! I saw this sketch across at Casethissketch And... decided that I needed to use the honeycomb die to create some texture behind the focal image and then use a bee as the element on the sentiment. I angled the sentiment a little so that I could fit the bee in comfortably. Here's a close-up -... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host our first Paper Players challenge of the year and it's theme week: It's a great way to celebrate anything new... a new house, pet, year, baby, love - anything that is worth celebrating that is new. Even though most of the design team celebrated babies, we can't wait to see what you create! I made some cards to celebrate new babies in NIC units. I purchased some papers and elements from and made a set of cards. This was one of my favorites. I love the colors and I love... Read more →
