Best Fishes

Toni here with a cute underwater scene made using the Your Next Stamp Fishy Fun set.  Oh, so adorable!  And don't the "bubbles" add a nice touch of dimension?  Sometimes that's all you need for that little pop to make a CAS card memorable.

Come over to my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, and read more about how I made this card!

Dream Big, Piggy

Toni here with a cute card I worked up for someone graduating next week.  I used a variety of plaid papers (love them so!) as well as liberal amounts of Wink of Stella.  Doesn't the Neat and Tangled die look fab with a sassy shadow full of glitter?  Read more about it on my blog, Frankie Helps Craft.

Let Your Light Shine!

Toni here today with a card for THD Challenge 3.  As you can see I pulled in the metallics and succulents. Heck, I'll even say I chose wood color, sorta kinda!  I created a simple shaker that was not simple to make because of many user errors.  Did you know that shakers work best when you add the acetate panel?  Yeah, those kinds of errors!

Now you still have time to enter the challenge and hopefully Inlinkz will continue to play nice. Fingers crossed!

Turn That Frown Upside Down

Hi everyone it's Lenae here from SugarGem.
Telling you to -Turn that frown upside down! 
I seriously need to follow this suggestion!  So much to do lately and so little time! Anyhoo, I love this cute little set from Avery Elle called THAT BITES! Such a darling name!

I also used my Gansai Tambi Watercolors for the fish and the background.

Thank you for stopping in and taking a look.

Be sure to check out the store because there are new products all the time!

Well hello crafty friends!  Katie here, stopping by to share my take on this month's challenge #3.  

If you recall the inspiration photo:

So fun and trendy!  Remember that with each challenge you can choose 1, 2 or 3 of the elements as your inspiration.  I chose all 3...
  • A little wood-grain- check!
  • Some metallic- check!
  • Succulents- check!

The focal point of this card is the geometric shape cut from gold (oh how I love the shimmer!) with the corresponding succulents behind (Hero Arts).  The backdrop is brushed with Delicata Gold Ink from Tsukineko.  The framing is perfect from which to hang this lovely plant and I did so with some copper thread and hung it from my metal colored enamel dot.  The sentiment is from Mama Elephant. 
After making this card, it made me want more metalic things to play with!  So I went out and about to the shop and decided to pick up some of these goodies to add to my stash:

Now, if only I could get my craft nook finished so I can create more...maybe even all the time!  Bwahahaha!

Thanks for visiting.  Don't forget to join us for this fun challenge!
