Live, Love, Grow Catalogue CASE + 4 more cards

Hello............ I can't believe it's Friday already, this week just flew by. I participated in a demonstrator only swap this past weekend. It was an annual catalogue CASE swap, if you're not sure what a CASE is, it stands for copy and share everything.

I chose one of my favourite sets {Live, love, grow} for my card. Generally, I'm not one to CASE projects, but I enjoyed trying to replicate the sample in the annual catalogue. In turn, I received some lovely catalogue samples for myself and to share. 

Since I already had the stamp set out I decided to make a bunch more samples designed by me this time. Since I had my watercolour paper out and my Cucumber Crush ink, I opted for a watercolour background for my first two cards. 

I stamped a window sheet with the solid images from the set. I used Archival Black ink and put it aside to ensure they were dry. I didn't want to distract too much from the bold black images so I just added a piece of {Painter's Palette Designer Series Paper} and a gold doily. 

Next up is one very similar to the previous sample. I used the window sheet again, but I added some Emerald Envy with the Cucumber Crush and switched up the DSP, using {Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper}. 

The last two cards are again similar with slight variances. The one on the left I stamped the images with a variety of colours with a black sentiment from {One Big Meaning} and the second, I stamped the entire background in black and added the coloured piece for a pop of colour. I hope you are inspired to design or CASE, creating is good no matter how you do it. Have a beautiful day!

Skeletons have a humerus style!

Hello........ I love the card I am sharing today. Do you want to know why? What's cuter than one skeleton? Two, of course. What's cuter than two skeletons? Three, of course. But, today my card has not one, not two, not three - but FOUR smiling skeletons!!!! Since I have a mild massive obsession with skeletons I couldn't wait to ink these cuties up. I couldn't help myself, look at their smiling faces. It's not just me, is it? 

I used the {Cookie Cutter Halloween} to stamp the skeletons and the coordinating {Cookie Cutter Builder Punch} for easy cutting. I used Smoky Slate and Sahara Sand to colour them in. The card needed a bit of distressing and what's perfect for that is the new {Ghoulish Grunge}. This set is fabulous, I used the mesh netting image and used multiple shades of brown to colour them. 

So, one Halloween set used - check. Two Halloween sets used - check. Three Halloween sets used - check. Okay I completed my list... ha ha! I used another favourite of mine {Mr. Funny Bones}. I stamped the Oh snap! sentiment on the top of my card base and sponged the edges. I also used the Have a humerus Halloween, but instead I swapped out the Halloween for Birthday. Who wouldn't want a birthday card with four adorable little skeletons? I sure would.  

I hope you enjoyed my stamping inspiration for today, hope I didn't jibber jabber too much. Have a great and humerus day... love it!
