CASe this spooky month

It's the spooky time of the year and I am starting to make my contribution to it. I don't carve pumpkins, but I make treats for my friends and family.

Simon Says Challenge was calling for a walk on the dark side. Well, what more perfect than Halloween theme. I used the colors from the Colot Throwdown challenge and the sketch from CASe This Sketch. Happy Halloween month!

Happy birthday with a frame

I'm joining in today with a quick happy birthday card. It started as a mother's day card, but later turned into a happy birthday. The Mother's day stamp I had wasn't really cooperating with my idea, if you know what I mean :)  A very feminine card for the purposes of Die-cutting divas and the Always fun challenges.
The hint of pink and the frame were perfect for Simon Says challenge and also gave a very soft feel to it.  I was inspired by the sketch from the Sketch File (with a little tweaking of course)

Stamps: Altenew( Botanical garden) PTI(Happy Birthday)
Paper: Recollections(white, copper metallic, black)
InkVersafine (black)
Tools: Spellbinders (frame die)
Accessories: pencils, pearl stickers, watercolors, coPic markers
Size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Happy Cupcake birthday


Just a warning-this post is delicious :)

 I started this card with the sketch from the Sunday Sketch blog challenge.  I used the Bingo ticket from the  Passion for ProMakers blog-for the different elements I used polka dots, kraft and a punch.
My focal point is this delicious looking cupcake (yes, I am on a diet!) with a hint of pink on the frosting. Yum!

Stamps: Altenew (Label love), Hampton Art (cupcake)
Paper Recollections(kraft, vellum), patterned paper
Ink: Versafine (black)
Tools: Gina-K (Stitched shapes), Spellbinders (scallop)
Accessories: tag, Pearl stickers (Recollections), bakers twine, ribbon, die-cut sentiment

Enjoy this moment

Hello again! 

Today I am joining in with a new creation of mine on which I used a brand new technique (for me)

This week Make it Monday is calling for a watercolor wash background. It was a bit intimidating technique for me so I opted out to do a watercolor wash panel. I grabbed the color idea from the As You See It challenge blog and the sketch from Mojo Monday. I made it bright and beautiful so it can fit the AAA Cards challenge requirements and why not :)

Now to the Paper Players challenge- I loved the Tic-Tac-Toe idea, but I had to stick with only 3. I ended up choosing pink, die-cut, twine combo. My ribbon is tied with bakers twine hehe (I tried to tie only twine on my heart, but it wasn't "full" enough for me)

There you have it, I hope you've enjoyed it!

Fab Friday on Wednesday

Happy Fab Wednesday!

I am desperately trying to catch up on cards for Mother's day and birthdays, so here's one of them. 
I was inspired by the oh, so fun photo from the Card Concept blog. The flowers grabbed my attention and I wanted that to be my focal point. So I created this clean and graphic take on the challenge using the soft colors from the Fab Friday Gals. And despite the mishap with the color palette they had I think it's still pretty fabulous ( the color combo that is :)I'm joining  Картичкофуриите so we can celebrate this colorful month with this card.  

Enjoy the rest of the week!
