Today's CAS Challenge was to make-over one of our previous cards. We could simplify one of our past cards, or just redo a CAS card, etc. I chose to make-over this card. I pretty much took away most of the layers, the dp, and the stitching. I flipped the sketch, kept it on a white base, added the border and the sentiment. I like it because I always felt the other card was too busy. I hope you like it too, and thank you so much for stopping by today!

This set comes with so many cute sentiments, and little sea creatures, so this is how I finished off the inside.
I LOVE baby cards, and I couldn't resist this darling stamp called Baby Boy Clothes Out To Dry. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copics. I cut it out with square Nestabilities, and sponged around the image with SU Soft Sky ink. I used dp from K&Company Small Wonders Boy and the sentiment is from SU Short & Sweet. I added a machine stitch around the perimeter once again and put brads in the corners for a little interest. The ribbon and scalloped border finish it off! I will leave a complete recipe for both cards below : ) Thank you so much for stopping by today, and please wish me luck!!!

I made this card for today's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS to use something fuzzy on our cards. I immediately thought of this darling image from My Favorite Things, and thought it would be perfect to add some cotton to the bunny's tail. I also used my new Cottage Wall DSP from SU and I LOVE IT!!! I followed yesterday's sketch that Teresa created on the Mojo Monday blog. Well my hubby just came in the door with some dinner, so I'm off to eat! Thank you so much for stopping by : )

My first card was a sketch challenge based off of my ornament card found here. I was soooo honored that Jen (Miss Boo on SCS) chose my card as her inspiration!!! I decided to use this adorable Whipper Snapper image. I colored it with Copics and added the score lines and ribbon just like on my original card.
I made this one for the fourth sketch. I used the circle and sentiment from the Just for You set and the butterfly is from Petals & Stems. I stamped the circle with PTI Ocean Tides, and the sentiment with SU Not Quite Navy as well as the butterfly. The leaves were stamped with SU Crushed Curry. I once again used dp from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird as well as Very Vanilla and Sage Shadow cs.
My final card is pretty loud and crazy, so I thought a birthday card would be appropriate : ) I used the sentiment and balloons from Verve's Birthday Surprise set. The dp is Cosmo Cricket Early Bird and I used Sage Shadow, Kiwi Kiss, Real Red and Very Vanilla cs from SU. I stamped the balloons and sentiment with Not Quite Navy and colored the balloons with Copics.
I will be back to post the 3 cards I made for the Splitcoast CAS Challenge DT search. Jen (Miss Boo on SCS) actually used my ornament card as the sketch challenge! I am so honored that she chose my card!!! Thank you so much for stopping by : )

I'm going to use my Cosmo Cricket Early Bird dp for all of the cards. I think it's fun to make little sets like this every now and then. For my first card I used probably my favorite Verve set Miracles Blossom. I stamped the stems of the flowers with Kiwi Kiss and the tulips with Real Red. I didn't have any red rhinestones or pearls, so I colored in some white pearls with a red Copic marker to put on the butterflies.

PTI!!! So I've been wanting to order from Papertrey Ink for a while and when I read that they would be at the CHA show I thought that would be the perfect time to try them out! I was fortunate to be able to attend the CHA show Friday and Saturday since it was here in Orlando, and I had a blast! I loved hanging out at the Splitcoast Stampers booth and I met so many awesome people that I see online everyday! I also loved the PTI booth and spent way too much moola there : ) I made this card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #32 or MTSC32. I used my new PTI cs Spring Moss and Aqua Mist (I ADORE these colors together...and seperately lol!) and some dp from the Everyday Blessings paper pack. The stamp is from the PTI set Vintage Picnic. This set is so cute and it comes with 5 different picnic baskets, and several different items to put in the basket for different holidays etc. It also comes with several sentiments, but I chose not to use any on this card. I colored it with my Copics, and used my Rectangle Nestabilities to cut it out. I also added some texture to my SU Real Red panel with my CB Swiss Dots Folder and added the PTI satin ribbon. I think I may be hooked! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful evening!
