Case the catty 151

I made this card in response to the Case the catty #151 and ended up with a card outside my norm. It is the cute little elf from the Stampin Up retired set Christmas cuties. They were coloured with the new Stampin blends. I don't think I would make kultiples - fussy cutting the leaves was a little time consuming, but I am happy with the end result!

Summer by the Sea

I have coloured these gorgeous Stampin' Up stamps to use for cards later, and finished one card the other day for my Mum. This was finished using Real Red cardstock and a frame leftover from a die-cut rectangle in the Watercolour Christmas project kit.
Hope you enjoyed this, and thank you for looking!

Loads of love

Our two grandsons have moved , so we no longer have daily visits - very difficult to adjust to after they have been a major part of our lives for over 11 years! Hence the cards to send them in snail mail! The first is obviously soon after moving. This is a great set for colouring!
The second card is sent a couple of weeks later, and full of hearts for obvious reasons!

Halloween swaps

This was not an easy swap for me - I have never celebrated Halloween, and didn't have any suitable images in my stash! So I found this sentiment in Wacky wishes stamp set, and some spooky colours. Quite quick and easy!

Artful Stamper's swaps

August swap was a male card, suitable for Father's day. 
Male cards are not always easy for me, but I went for my favourite stamp set and neutral colours. It is the Wetlands stamp set - love the "sketchy" feel of these images, and beaches are my relaxing space, so this is an image that resonates in all ways.
Managed a couple of colour-ways. I usually leave sentiments until I've decided a recipient.

Another build a card.

I love these "build a card" - helpful inspiration when you need it (or even if you don't). This was perfect for a dear friend having a special birthday!

"Build a card" completed

Finally have time to upload the completed cards - 6 in total, all following the same instructions, with the same stamped image, and the same colour-way. All different.

I had so much fun doing this, and Alisa is starting another Build a card now, so I might have more to post in a few days.
