On a Roll

It's mid afternoon and I'm on a roll. I'll get supper started pretty soon, then it feels like I should play some more in my craft room. But for the moment, I'll post these cards, and then decide what to make next. I've got cards for a few challenges, but the one I wanted to get done first was the "Far Away" challenge over at Addicted to CAS. My dear friend Anita is Guest Designer there, and so I wanted to be sure to jump in on that one. I've also got a card for CASology, and one for The Card Concept.








Up first, is my card for ATCAS



It's a square card and in case you can't tell what this is, it's an airplane...or at least a section of one. The sentiment inside reads, "Let your dreams take flight". I cut the plane tile using my Cameo, and inserted shiny silver paper (from Michaels) under the body of the plane. Here it looks green because of the reflection of my living room walls. There is a snippet of blue for the sky and some MB die cut clouds. The gray paper is also just a scrap. 


Next is the card for CASology:




Talk about CAS...this was sooooo fast. I had made another card, but once I looked at it with a critical eye, it just wasn't CAS enough. Back to the drawing board....And while searching for something completely different in my flower sticker box, I ran across these. They're from Sticko. A sentiment from MFT done in Colorbox silver ink, and TaDa! Done!


And the last card for this post will go into the Card Concept Challenge. Had to think hard for this one. I wanted to be different. First, I thought I'd use up all my little flowers with the rhinestones on them, you know, cover the whole umbrella...nah...(I think Mr. Mojo was trying to be snotty on that one...). But how to use an umbrella in a 'different' way... It's not CAS, or CAG, I think it's a CAL card. See what I came up with...



I cut everything with my Cameo once again. The stamp is from Lawn Fawn and I used some Studio G ink. The 'room' was drawn with an SU water color pencil. Scraps for everything except for the base, which is Gina K. kraft. So that's it for me for this post. (I do have another card, which I'm totally in love with, but am saving that for a special occasion later this summer) Five cards before 3:00, is enough for now. So with that, go watch the rest of the Cubs game as they celebrate 100 years at Wrigley Field today. Or just do a little happy dance!

5 cards before 3, way to go. And send some of that Mojo my way. The plane card is so artsy, and the umbrella one is a unique way to present it.

OH Babs said...

OMG the airplane card is fantastic.

Geri said...

Hey you...send some of that MOJO my way! These cards are sooooo amazing!

Your airplane card is beyond clever and creative! What an incredible idea! The metallic paper totally 'shines' and the wee peak of clouds & sky - genius! :)

Sending Smiles...stickeroo perfection - plain and simple gorgeousness doesn't get any better than this!

And then there's your 'jaw hits keyboard' umbrella card! The gingham umbrella, in a wee puddle of water, leaning against the wall in the mud room with the wind whipping the rain against the window...HOME RUN! You were striving for different - mission accomplished!

Sorry for the long comment!
