CASology Challenge #250

Hi there blog friends,
I'm playing along with one of my favorite challenges again ~ CASology Challenge #250 and this week the cue card is ‘Loud’!

For me it was a PTI electric guitar is the loudest stamp in my stash :)
I started by creating a mask and inking the circle with Shaded Lilac DI and die cut the panel with MFT's Wonky Rectangle die. I stamped all of the images with Versafine, then sprinkled clear EP on the musical notes and sentiment for shine.

*** Initially, I had a hard time getting a crisp image on the guitar...Here are a few tips:
I cleaned the stamp with Hero Arts Ultra Clean, dried it and rubbed it down with my white eraser. Then, I used a fine sanding block, brushed it off with a stamp scrubber and cleaned it with my Shammy...Voila! A clean, crisp image!

I'll be back tomorrow with my ATCAS DT card...hope to see you then. Wishing you all a great weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,

CASology Challenge #249; SSS Flickr Challenge #71

Hi there blog friends ~
I'm joining in a few challenges and I have two cards to share...First up is a card for this week's challenge at CASology.

And, my card...

I won this EKG die in a blog hop from Sugar Pea Designs and thought it would be fun to use it for this cue card. I embossed the white panel with the PTI Linen Impression Plate to add texture and the sentiment is from MFT.


My 2nd card is for the current challenge at SSS Flickr Group, and we were asked to create a card using our favorite technique ~

I love ink blending and die cutting, so I used my new Distress Oxide inks on Bristol cardstock and I love the smooth, creamy texture of this ink. I blended 3 colors from bottom left to top right, although it's hard to see the Worn Lipstick on screen. The die cut (Confetti) is SSS and the stamped sentiment is also from SSS.
That's it for me ~ I hope everyone is having a great weekend...Thanks so much for stopping by,

CAS on Sunday Challenge - Shaker Card

Hi everyone ~ I'm sharing a card that I created for this week's challenge at CAS on Sunday and we are being asked to create a Shaker Card!

I just received this cute MFT set and this challenge seemed like a great opportunity to ink it up. I blended my inks inside the SSS trio of windows, colored the critters with Copic markers and added a mix of sequins from my stash...lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Beach Bunnies set, and that was it!

Thanks so much for stopping by...and a special thanks for your sweet comments!
