An Autumn Hello

Hi all!  I’m trying to coax my creative mojo out of the vacation it decided to take over the past week or so.  I wanted to play along with the Lil’ Inker Monthly Meetup Challenge and I went super CAS.

I cut my Connected Circles from Vintage Cream and stamped them with a pattern from Darling Diamonds in a goldy yellow and orange pattern.  I completed each center with a little green rhinestone.  For the front panel, I stamped Hello, from the Darling Diamonds set as well, in Rich Cocoa.  I absolutely love that font!  I underlined it with green rhinestones as well.  Just super CAS!

There’s still a bit of time to play along with the challenge.  Here’s the photo inspiration for you!

Seriously Awesome….Best News Ever

Hi again!  I’m back with another super fun card.  Earlier this year, I had picked up the Seriously word die from Lil’ Inker Designs.  With their most recent sale, I decided to pick up the Awesome word die and the Seriously Awesome stamp set.  It makes for some seriously fun cards!

I cut my words from adhesive-backed glitter fun foam.  It definitely gives the words a bit more spring to them so it takes a bit to get them back into readable shape.  I wanted to create a simple shaker and used MFT Blueprints 14 to cut my window.  I stamped “Best News Ever!” in Razzle Berry and a pair of arrows in Gumdrop Green.  Then I backed my window with acetate and a double layer of foam tape.  I added in a fun mix of pink and green sequins and adhered another piece of acetate before putting it down on my card base.  Finally, I placed my words onto the window.

Seriously — You’re A Pain

Hi all!  I didn’t mean to fall off the face of blog-land, but I’ve been busy prepping for the PTA Art Gallery at my kiddos’ school.  Unfortunately, it was supposed to be tonight and Mother Nature decided to intervene.  Yup, on the first day of spring, we are getting SNOW!  At this point, I can say I’m totally over winter!  So, I’m dedicating my card today to Mother Nature!  But, only if you don’t read between the lines!

Wednesday I had an impromptu “therapy session” with a friend and I pulled together this very CAS card featuring Lil’ Inker Designs The Fine Print.  I think this set is just HILARIOUS!  Since these sentiments are quite small, I added in a die cut of seriously.    It’s cut with some glitter foam, which gave it a lot of stretchiness!  I ran it through the Xyron to get it good and glued.

If you read between the lines, you’ll see the sentiment reads “When You’re not here with me A Pain runs through my heart.”  Seriously fun sentiments!
