DO RE MI-ssing You

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the CAS-ology Challenge. The CUE CARD for this week is MUSIC.

Week 146 - Music

I was trying to think of a way to interpret music and I had a “You Are My Sunshine” card at back of my head. But I definitely wanted to try and think outside the box. Then an idea hit me, and I think this could be one of my favorite card I’ve made. The card came out exactly how I imagined it which is rare for me. It may not be clean and simple with a lot of white space, but i think grey is pretty close. 🙂

Here is my card —

DO RE MIssing You

I die cut the letters / words DO, RE, MISSING, and YOU from different colors using the My Favorite Things Bright Lights Alphabet. I wanted to create a pun on words so I created a space between MI and ssing. For an accent image, I didn’t have any large music note stamp or die cut, so I found a clip art online and cut it. I emembellishedhe note with some Clear Wink of Stella pen and then layered with Glossy Accents.

For the card base, I used a standard size top folding card in Simon Says Stamp Smoke card stock. I stamped the music notes stamp from the Teeny Tiny Backdrops from Lawn Fawn is Hero Arts Soft Granite ink.

That’s it for this card.

Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card using a couple of sketches from 2 different challenges. I know it’s ironic that I decided to combine two sketch challenges because realistically it would just be a mess. But both sketches I used are very similar.

This card is an entry for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. This is the sketch —

CTS_105

 

And this is sketch for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge.

210

So when you look at both sketches, they are very similar. A frame/panel, a focal point on the left and the sentiment next to it. The only difference is the orientation. So I may be crazy but I decided to incorporate both sketches and make it my own.

Here is my card —

Happy Birthday Doggie

 

I started this card with some Carnation layering paper from Hero Arts cut to a landscape card with the fold on top. I used the star backdrop from Lawn Fawn’s Teeny Tiny Backdrops. I wanted to stamp the background and have a tone on tone effect, so I used Cotton Candy ink from Simon Says Stamp. For the frame, I used the two biggest rectangles from the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle dies. I cut a frame from some gold paper from the Glitzy Glitter paper pack from Die Cuts With A View.

For the focal image, I stamped the dog from the Cupcake Cutie set from My Favorite Things and colored it in with Copic markers. I will have all the colors in the supply list below. I cut the image with a circle punch and I cut another balloon and adhered it with foam adhesive. I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the balloon and the ribbon on the dog. Then I added Glossy Accents to the balloon. For the sentiment, I stamped the birthday greeting from the same Cupcake Cutie set on a strip of Carnation layering paper with Versamark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

To finish the card, I placed some gold and pink enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye.

That’s it for this card. For a complete list of the supplies I used, please check the supply list below.

12 Days of Christmas Cards Day 3 – Season’s Greetings

12 Days of Christmas

 

Hi everyone! I’m here with Day 3 of my 12 Days of Christmas Cards. I wanted to apologize for the lack of posts, I have just been caught up with many things and had barely any time to craft. I will definitely finish all 12 days before Christmas day. Thank you for your patience.

My #12DaysofXmas giveaway is still going on till December 26. Check out the details here.

Today’s card is a fun one. It is an easy card to mass produce since you get many parts with every die cut. I also created a box for the cards. I learned the sizes of the box from this post and video that Jennifer McGuire shared.

Here is my card and box

Season's Greetings

I also created a video showing the process in which I made the card. You can watch it below or on YouTube.

That’s it for Day 3. Thanks for reading. See you soon for Day 4.
