For the first card, I need to give credit to Therese, at Lost in Paper, whose card I totally CASEd. Have you ever fallen in love with someone's card, and you just have to do a little online shopping so you can make one just like it??!! That happened with this card:
I won't even tell you how long I stared at this one... Those colors, those owls (and I'm not a big owl fan, go figure...), the composition, that sentiment; I don't know what struck me, but I am full-on in love with this sweet card.
For mine, I'm going to play at Seize the Birthday, where the topping is creatures or animals.
And it looks like this:
My favorite green ink died, so I had to go with yellow, but I LOVE this new Fresh Inks Chamomile. And the blue is also from Fresh Inks. The gray is Smoke from ME. The owls are NBUS from MFT, as is the sentiment.
Next, is a card that will play at The Heart Desires and Cards In Envy (where the theme is to use your favorite color combination/anything goes).
If you look in the lower right-hand quarter, you'll see a flock of paper birds, and I was inspired by the movement and colors there. And I quite love this color combination.
I cut the birds out of various colors with my Silhouette, and arranged them about 5 million times until this mostly pleased me. The sentiment, both die and stamped are from Hero Arts. While I like this, I decided to make another, which looks nothing like this, which I'll post soon.
Lastly, I made a shaker card for CAS on Sunday, as the theme is a CAS shaker. I did my best to make it CAS, and if it doesn't meet those requirements, then I hope the DT removes it forthwith.
Still in love with this AE birthday cake.
Horrid photograph. But this is so cute in person! PPP scalloped die, and as previously mentioned, an Avery Elle stamp and die. I colored the cake with Copics and added various sequins for the shaker part. I hope you like this as much as I do. And I'm off to get to my 'care giving' duties. Have a good day and as always,
