Winnie & Walter CAS + Freestyle Collage


This is for Winnie & Walter's 1st Birthday Bash CAS + Freestyle Collage Challenge where we were supposed to make a Birthday card.  I white embossed a stamp from the Pennant set over some distress ink smooshed watercolor paper I trimmed around and popped it up on foam tape.

Winnie & Walter Distress Inks + Pattern Challenge


Here is my entry for Winnie and Walter's 1st Birthday Bash Distress Inks + Pattern Challenge.  I used Mustard Seed, Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters Distress ink and created the pattern by trying to make the white lines of the Banner stamp to line up.  It doesn't work perfectly and I was rushing to get it done, but I like how it looks.

Winnie & Walter Mood Board Challenge


Here is my entry for the Mood Board Challenge for Winnie & Walter's 1st Birthday Bash.  I used It's a Wonderful Pennant arranged to make the white space look like a heart beat on a monitor.  The triangles were stamped with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink since it was the most purple ink I have.  The words were made up from Lawn Fawn's Clark's ABC's.

Winnie & Walter Collage Challenge


Here's my entry for Winnie & Walter's Collage Challenge for their big 1st Birthday Bash.  I used It's a Wonderful Pennant for the V in LOVE stamped in SSS Maliblue ink.  The stars (Big Bang Confetti) are stamped in Maliblue and Cobblestone.  A few words are subtly scattered around the card and embossed in white pearl EP, though it's hard to see the ones at the top of the card due to the angle of the light. 
I really love the inspiration photo. I have no deer stamps or dies, but you can pretend the stars on the card are their footprints through the snow!

Pinball Card




Hi everyone!

I have a fun card today!  Do you remember those tilt ball mazes you often got as a party favor when you were a kid?  You know, the little round plastic ones that you held in your hand.  They usually had a picture of a goofy clown and you were supposed to get the silver BB to fall into the hole where his nose was?  Yah, those things!  I really don't know what they are called but I'll just call them a tilt ball maze until someone corrects me. Anyhow, I made one as a card!!!

Here's a short video of it in action!

ETA - I'm thrilled to have an Honorable Mention from CASology for my card!




I'm entering this card in four Five challenges. 
The current MUSE challenge #100 where Michele Ferguson wants us to "accentuate the negative".  What better way to accentuate it than to have 3 silver balls rolling around in the negative space trying to land one of them in the center of the bright red heart (similar to the inspiration card)!  One Direction has a song called Rock Me so I squeezed in the optional twist of song lyrics (although I think Pinball Wizard would have been a better one!)
SSS Wednesday challenge where It's a Guy thing.  This is totally a guy thing!  The challenge of getting one of the silver balls in the right hole - what guy could resist? The red heart was stamped with Barn Door DI.
Winnie & Walter are having lots of fun challenges for their 1st Birthday Bash.  This is going in for the Shaker Challenge.  It's a shaker with a twist, but still a shaker, right?
Casology has a NBUS Challenge - It's the first time using my SSS stitched circles die.  I wasn't sure if a shaker card could be CAS but I'm going for it.
ETA- NBUS Challenge #3 Anything Goes - my NBUS is my SSS stitched circles dies & Taylored Expressions embossing folder.
