No Chatter Today

Nope. Getting right to the cards. Have too much to do yet, and it's getting later and later in the day. Playing in several challenges with three cards. So...

First I've got a card for CASology, where the CueCard is "birthday."


And my card:


Michaels white base, MFT oval die, MB 'happy' die, PTI 'birthday' sentiment stamped with TH embossing ink, and then Zing white embossing powder. Three MME enamel dots finish it off. 

Next is my card for Lily's birthday. A big shout-out and thank you to Geri G. of Manitoba Stamper for sending this stamp set. Great plans for several grandgirls! Thanks!!! This card will go into Freshly Made Sketches and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where it's 'Anything Goes', and then into Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday for January with 'new' as the cue.

Here's my card:


Michaels white base with various scraps! SSS Princess stamp (thanks again Miss G.!!), colored with Copics. MFT Fishtail die and oval dies. Three Recollections teeny-tiny pearls. Versafine black ink.

And last, but not least I have a card that (hopefully) fits into the current Muse, and The Card Concept. If it doesn't work for the Muse Ardyth, feel free to take it down....Here's our inspiration card by Julie B....



And the super fun inspiration photo from TCC:


I combined these two challenges, but was inspired by the tannish-beiges and the heart and ombre. 


Kept it really CAS. Michaels white base, and a scrap of the same printed with a Silhouette ombre pattern, then overstamped with a LF woodgrain in ME's Hazel ink, and finally die cut with MFT's pierced rectangle die. A scrap of pink vellum die cut with an RC heart. LF sentiment in Hazel ink, and a scrap of gold twine. That's it. Gotta run...Happy dances everyone!

Great cards - love the pops of green on the black and white and the ombre wood! I can't seem to get into my craft room lately and when I do, I just sit there....need some mojo!! Thanks for joining us at Muse and CASology this week, my friend!

You have such a great range with your card art, Bevie! These are all stunning! Your first birthday card gives me a very Ardyth vibe and your third gorgeous make is very evocative of Maria F. She is another card idol of mine, so I'm very impressed that you captured her style, IMHO!! And your card for Lily and the other girls is going to make you Grandma of the Year with your perfect Frozen design!! Hugs, Darnell

Three great cards Bev, all so different.

A trio of beauties, Bev! Love the cool, graphic feel of your first card and the pop of colour from the enamel dots. The flowery frame around the princess is a lovely touch. The last card is so so cool! Love the ombre and the thought of a heart carved into a tree trunk. :) Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Kelly Griglione said...

Ummm, WOW, Bev!! You've sure covered quite a big range in this one post ... 1) bold and graphic, 2) soft and pretty and 3) clean and modern. My hats off to you. They are all wonderful, but I'm totally drawn in to your vellum heart overlapping the wood grain. Gorgeous!

Geri said...

Ahhhh....I KNEW that you would do justice to this stamp set! This is soooooo pretty! The DP banners and your coloring are gorgeous!

CAS - Yep - you rocked this! The ombre inking and the velum heart - WOW! And the glorious white space - double Wow!!!
