Can You Case It #163, A Color Challenge

All good things must come to an end.  This is my last post as a Design Team Member for Can You Case It.  This was my very first design team experience and I loved every second.  I am forever grateful to Eva Bussom for having me and putting up with all my questions in the beginning.  You were so patient with me.  And to the rest of the team, past and present, I am going to miss all of you.  We worked very well together.  I wish nothing but the best for all of you.

Here are the colors for this week's sketch:Image may contain: text
Here is my card:

I was going for the look of bandanas with the two pieces of pattern paper.  The boots and sentiment stamps are from the set, Sassy Boots (Unity Stamp Co.).  Sentiment was stamped in black ink (Stampin' Up).  The boots were colored with colored pencils (Faber-Castell) and markers (Stampin' Up and Tim Holtz).  Silver star is Tim Holtz.  Unfortunately, I cannot remember who made the paper, but the pieces used are from the same sheet (front and back).

Well thanks for looking.  I hope you continue to visit my blog.  Thanks for all the love and support over the past couple of years.

Keep crafting in peace & love,

And here is my card:

Adorable, right??  Told ya!  I just love this owl stamp (Impression Obsession).  I colored him with water colored pencils (Prima).  The sentiment stamp is from the set, sometimes I wonder (Unity Stamp Co.).  Ripped blue pattern paper and paper strip are Webster's Pages.  I believe cork background paper is Simple Stories.  Sentiment was stamped in ink from Stampin' Up and owl was stamped in Ranger ink.

Thanks for visiting!

Until next time,

Can You Case It #159, A Sketch Challenge

Hello!  I have been off the crafting grid for a couple of weeks, but now I am back.  It was so great getting back in my studio.  Today, I finished a guest book I have been working on and I created this card for the Can You Case It Challenge.

Enjoy Mixed Media Canvas Album

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing a mixed media canvas album (Prima) that I altered.  I really, really love how it turned out.  The cover features loads of shabby chic goodness.

 It's graduation season so I thought this would make for a great guest book.  It could also serve as a Sweet 16 guest book, a Quinceanera guest book, or an art journal,  This book is filled with 50 sheets of various papers (heavy weight white card stock, heavy weight cream card stock, and heavy weight pattern paper).  There are also two envelopes included inside, metal clips and metal hangers with banners.

The cover features various inks (Prima Marketing Inc.), floral stems (Prima), a mini cloche (Prima), light bulb (Prima), metal watering can (Prima), a metal garden sink (Prima), a wood clock (Prima), a resin butterfly (Melissa Frances), and die cut paper (Heidi Swapp).

This item is available for purchase in my ETSY shop,  It is ready to ship.

Thanks for visiting.

Until next time,

Can You Case It #156, Ombre Challenge

Welcome back friends to our weekly challenge!  I have to admit, this challenge was somewhat of a struggle for me.  It took me several takes to get this ombre background.  It's way late and now I'm thinking I didn't follow the guidelines for this challenge (LOL).  It's been one of those weeks.  Here is the inspiration:

Here is my card:

The background was created with a stencil (Art Anthology) and Stampin' Up inks.  Colored pencils were used on the guy stamp (Dina Wakley).  Sentiment is from June 2014 Kit of the Month (Unity Stamp Co.).  I also used die cut paper (Heidi Swapp) and a strip of pattern paper (Authentique).  Film strip is Tim Holtz and screws are Prima.

I really appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog.  I hope this challenge inspires you to create.  Please come back again next week for another challenge.

Until next time,
