Let's Celebrate

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Thought I'd slip in a quick "green" card today and may the luck of the irish be with you all. This is a simple CAS card. I've used a new die from MFT and the darker cardstock and button are also MFT. The lighter cardstock is CTMH. The greeting stamp is MFT and is double stamped to create a subtle shadow. I used Memento and MFT ink and the hemp is unknown. Last, but not least, I used glossy accents inside the squares (which are layered 4 deep to give a chipboard effect). Enjoy your St. Patty's Day!

 Close up so you can see shadow and glossy accents :)

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Have a lucky happy day!

Ink: Memento
Gems: CTMH

One last CAS card for the day! Time to pack it in and go make some supper. This card is also entered into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge where the theme as mentioned in the two previous posts is wallpaper. I am having too much fun creating backgrounds. Cardstock is from my scrap bin  (some is Gina K including card base). The sentiment stamps are Paper Smooches, ink  is Memento and dies are a chevron Dienamics die from MFT. The gems are CTMH.

Thanks for stopping in. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

MORE CAS cards

I'm having a very crafty afternoon. Here are a couple more cards for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge of wallpaper. I am entering the first card in the challenge. Both cards are using Gina K card stock (the circles are from my scrap bin - unknown). The punches in the second card are Marvy Uchida and the sentiment stamp for both is from Paper Smooches. The cute clouds and die are from Stamps of Life. Ink is Memento and Color Box.

Hope you are having a crafty day too!


Thinking of you

This card is for a CAS-ual Fridays challenge - which is wallpaper and the current Case this Sketch challenge. The paper is all Gina K as is the adorable lamp, flowers and sentiment stamp. The die with matching stamp is from paper smooches. The embossing folder is the cuttlebug swiss dots and ink is Memento.

Thanks for stopping in. I think I will try a couple more for the wallpaper challenge.
