Here is my card:





For this card, I used a crafting tool I have not used in some time, an embossing folder.  This was also the first time I ever used this particular embossing folder.  It is called poppy (Provo Craft).  Sentiment stamp is from butterfly endearment (Unity Stamp Co.).  Glass jar on a pedestal is from Salvage District (Prima).  Inks used are Stampin' Up, Tim Holtz, and Derwent and Prima water color pencils.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  Your comments always make my heart sing.  Be sure to swing by next week-end for a color challenge.

Until next time...keep crafting in peace and love,

Can You Case It #150, A Color Challenge

Welcome back to this week's challenge at Can You Case It?!  Check out this fabulous, earthy, color combo picked by our DTM, Kevin.  These colors work great together, particularly for those masculine cards.

Here is my card:






A co-worker recently lost her dad.  I don't make too many masculine sympathy cards.  I thought these colors were perfect for his sympathy card.  Also, this is my first time stamping on a book page.  I've been wanting to do this for some time.  I love it.  Will use this technique a lot.  The book page is from a vintage book I purchased for $1.00 at a book sale at my local library.  The book was published in 1924.  Amazing, right?

Supplies used:  large stamp is called tangled leaf background (Donna Downey Studios and Unity Stamp Co.); sentiment stamp is from the February 2015 Sentiment Kit, beautiful life, blessed memories (Unity Stamp Co.); copper brad (Making Memories); blue ink (Stampin' Up); green ink (Smooch); copper metallic rub on ink (Craf-T Products, Inc.); and string (Stampin' Up).

Thanks for visiting my blog and make sure you join us for this challenge on Facebook/Can You Case It Challenge Group.

Until next time, stay crafty my friends,

Savvy 7-March 2017-Blog Hop-LUCK

Welcome to this month's blog hop brought to you by the Savvy 7.  This month's theme is luck.  Initially, I thought I was going to make a St. Patrick's Day card, but then switched gears to use stamps I recently purchased from Unity Stamp Co.  This set is so cute.  I love, love, love it!


Both the dog and sentiment come from the lucky Dog set.  I created the water color background with an oil pastel (Prima).  The sweet dog was water colored with earth tone water color pencils (Prima).  I stamped the dog on pattern paper and cut the tie and adhered it with foam adhesive to my dog.  I also incorporated a strip of pattern paper with a die cut overlay (Heidi Swapp), a mini binder clip (Fancy Pants), and a mini file folder (Fancy Pants) to complete this card.

I really do appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog.  Come back the first Sunday in April for more inspiration.

Keep crafting in peace and love,
Dawn

And here is my card:







For this card I used stamps from an older Kit of the Month (November 2011) from Unity Stamp Co.  This was my very first time using both of these stamps.  This card features torn pattern paper (Teresa Collins) and pattern paper from My Minds Eye and Pink Paislee.  There is also a doily and measuring tape trim.  There is also a piece of die cut paper (Heidi Swapp).  Inks used were Tempting Turquoise and Crushed Curry, both Stampin' Up.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have been inspired by all of us at Can You Case It?!
