ATCAS #41: Sun

This card ended up being a journey; trying to get to point A but ended up at point B.  The yellow base is made using the wax resist technique.  I also used a paper doily, Studio G sentiment, leaf stickers, and tiny pearls.  If you want to join in the fun at Addicted to CAS, you can click HERE

OWH Sketch #231

Thanks to Angie B, we have another fun sketch to play with at OWH.  I decided to dig around in my scrap pile for a little inspiration.  The tan piece is packaging that I dry embossed and sanded.  It looks like it is heat embossed.  Sentiment is Hero Arts (I think).

Words 2 Scrap By

Yes...another post...I had the day off because I have been working on the weekends.  It was great to get caught up on cleaning and I had a little fun along the way.  This card is for Words 2 Scrap By which is having a Dr Seuss inspired challenge.  I was having a hard time deciding what to create when I ran across these hot air balloons by Bird.  I have to admit that I have never seen a Balloon Glow but DH & I once took a ride in one.  My favorite part was skimming the top of the tasseled was amazing.


Okay so I want to confess up front that I am not sure the "Candi"s add anything good to the card or are they just a distaction...honestly, what do you think?  The paper is by SignifyPink; sentiment by Studio G.

Cards in Envy: Fun in the Sun

Another fun challenge at Cards in Envy.  When I saw the theme I immediately thought of baseball; an all-american summer past time.  I decided to go retro and found this awesome image at Free Vintage Digital Stamps.  Keeping with the all-american theme, I decided to create the background out of washi tape.  I added some stitching, a baseball and sentiment to finish the card.  I think I will be saving this card for my BIL's 50th birthday which is later this year.

OWH Sketch #229

A fun sketch shared by Brenda.  When I saw the sketch my mind immediately went to these gears that have been in my stash for awhile by Little Yellow Bicycle.  The silver foil is by Recollections; the brown may be by Adornit.  Sentiment is a mix of the computer and stickers.  I am giving this card to my baby brother.

OWH Sketch #228

WooHoo!  It is Sunday which also means Funday if you are like me and look forward to a new sketch from OWH.  This sketch is courtesy of Anji.  The posted sketch was not viewable, so I used my best guess to follow the layout on her card.  The chipboard is by Imagininse and the lined paper is October Afternoon (a piece of scrap I could not throw away).

The theme of this week's MWT is BBQ or Hamburger.  I had never made one of these hamburger cards before so I decided to give it a whirl.  The base paper is Little Yellow Bicycle; the rest are scraps.  Sentiment is by CTMH.  I am a little under the weather but am looking forward to feeling better soon.
