It's a three-fer today. One for Muse, one for CASology, and one to share at Less Is More and Inkspirational Challenges. How's that for getting back on track?! I had way too much fun spending time in the old craft room. So let's take a look-see, starting with Muse. Oh my, my, my.... Michele came up with this, and I had to practically CASE it. Love at first sight.
I so CASEd her card. I even used the same sentiment set (purely by accident!).
I've been diving into my 6x6 paper packs. Desperately trying to stop hoarding so many of my "favorite" things. This black quatrefoil snippet is from Pebbles. The oval die is an MFT one, and the sentiment is from RC. Those sweet little peppermints are from Clear and Simple stamps which I fussy cut. I would have used the dies, but couldn't find them...until AFTER I cut them. Duh! One of them is popped up a bit.
Next is my offering for CASology.
Now, CASology is already a "Clean and Simple" challenge. So how does one go S on a CAS challenge? Well, here's what my brain decided to do:
One stamp set. It's pretty much NBUS and by SC. Two inks; Versafine black and ME pink. I used a bow from a HA set and fussy cut it. I've got a granddaughter's birthday coming up, and this might be a good one for her. EZPZ lemon squeezy!
This last card will visit Less Is More, and the Inkspirational Challenge. Less Is More is all about neutrals this week. I was in the mood for pretty much neutrals, anyway! (after an upward glance at the other cards. Just noticed that....I am such a knob).
The focal panel pulls out of the sweet little envelope. Miss Amy T. sent me that after the Fall CLBH, so it's my "new" thing. And my card was inspired by this card that Erin made for the Winter CLBH.
A view outside the envelope:
All sorts of inspiration floating around blogland, as I'd come up with the kraft hearts, but they were so plain. Then I saw Anita's card. Splatters. Just what those little hearts needed. Only a few...
So the square and the label frame are from MFT. RC hearts. WPlus9 sentiment. The linen paper is from Anita, when we spent a heavenly week at the Lake House. Some bakers twine, a couple of snippets of b&w striped paper to bring your eyes to the center, two staples, and that's about it.
DANG! Long post. Sorry. So I'll stop now. But I will be back. Happy dances everyone!!
