Muse #195 + SSS Ice Inspiration

I knew immediately what card I wanted to make after seeing Anita's lovely card for the Muse Challenge #195.




This card uses a Poppystamps Snowflake die in a similar way to Anita, although I left the die cut white and inked the panel pieces with Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. I also inked the card base so the color would peek through the open parts of the snowflake and the channel between the ribbon pieces.




Two layers of the snowflake ribbon help add extra dimension to the card. The Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler sentiment is inked with Tumbled Glass and stamped to follow the curve of the ribbon.




Wink of Stella is swiped along the die cut for a touch of icy sparkle.

I am also linking this card to the Wednesday Challenge Blog where this week the challenge is Ice Inspiration.

CASology Week 227: SPACE

Welcome to Week 227 at CASology!




I was initially thinking of an outer space themed card when I saw this week's cue card, but you know how the stream of consciousness can take you in another direction. For me it went from outer space to constellation to star to Memory Box Star of Wonder die.




The star is cut from gold glitter paper and adhered on a Dark Indigo card base along with a Poppystamps sentiment die cut from Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Metallic Papers. Dark Indigo is a new deep blue color from Papertrey Ink that I'm loving, but found really hard to photograph. 




Check out the Design Team for more great cards inspired by the word SPACE!

CASology Week 226: CANDLE

Welcome to Week 226 at CASology!


 


Our Cue word CANDLE works perfectly with a few of the great digital images from Kitty Bee Designs! I choose to use this sweet bumble, printing it and the Kitty Bee Designs sentiment on a piece of lighter weight Neenah cardstock.




Using just two shades of yellow and a dark gray, the trio of Copic markers helped keep the design clean and simple.




The hat ruffle, wings and candle flame are highlighted with a Wink of Stella glitter pen before the panel is die cut with a Wonky Stitched oval die and popped up on the card base.

For more great ideas, check out the Design Team cards!
