CASE Study and Time Out Challenge

I decided to jump in and do the CASE Study challenge this week. I have had the Vegetable Garden set forever, and wanted to use it for a fall themed I made tags hah - which also follows along with the Time Out Challenge - woohoo!

The CASE Study inspiration was so cool and a match for this stamp I made some tags with tomatoes on them....sounds simple.- of course it took me forever !

I used Hero Arts Pale Tomato ink on my tomato stamp and rock and rolled it with PTI Pure Poppy ink.  I double cut the Tag Sale #5 using PTI white cardstock and part of a box - yeppers - I did that..

  I designed a small linen bag also - and added some tomatoes inside (real ones) - I'll take those to my mom if she needs them.  I stamped the bag with the A Little Argyle Background Stamp in Simply Chartreuse ink and then added a few Pure Poppy dots - scattered around.

Join up in the Challenges - they are fun to do!!

Best. Day. Ever.

The Fusion Challenge is kind of a different can choose to be inspired by the photo OR the sketch OR both....  Choices?? ack!!

I love the shiny pink - naturally, and I love the sketch, so I chose to do both.  Although I sortofkindof left off a panel - sort of.....but oh well....

I really like this $5 mini stamp "Cat's Meow" from Papertrey Ink. Easy to stamp. Easy to colour. Easy to diecut.  And don't even get me started on those cute little yarn balls......yummers....

The patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink's Soft Stone Patterned Pack.....another favourite.

I stamped the sentiment - from Bigger Blooms directly onto the patterned paper - I can just imagine this little kitty and the mischief he gets into - and enjoying it immensely!!

See you later, gator!

Thanks a Bunch

Good morning!

My creation today uses the Reverse Confetti Sketch and the Color Throwndown challenges - woohoo!  The color Throwdown challenge gurus have now decided to NOT add the colour names to their swatches - only the colours - great news! - I'm easily confused......

 I started with an Aquamist card base and added patterned paper from my Carta Bella - Moments and Memories 6x6 paper pad. 

Using the Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts, I die cut a tag and added some Petals 'N Posies flowers stamped in Blueberry Sky, Enchanted Evening, Simply Chartreuse and Aquamist inks. I fussy cut the flowers and vines - believe me- right after this card I ordered the Petals 'N Posies Confetti Cuts - no more fussy cutting......yi yi yi!

I die cut the Fabulous Flamingos and popped them up onto a patterned paper circle, adding a few more fussy cut flowers.  The sentiment, also from Fabulous Flamingos, was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.

I love sanding down the edges of this particular patterned paper - it almost looks like it adds another layer.....great trick!


 Why don't you give the Color Throwdown and SFYTT a shot this week? Fun!
