You are awesome!

Hi there!

Happy Friday to you!

Thanks for popping in to take a look at the card I made this morning 😊

A closer look:

... and the supplies:

A simple card using a stencil and inks with  sentiment , partially cut with my Silhouette and partially stamped.

The font I used for the 'you' is called 'Watermelon script' and the stamped part is from the Label-love set by Altenew.

I added 3 rhinestones to embellish.

CAS(e) this sketch 232

Hi there!

Thursday again... and time for a new challenge at CAS(e) this sketch !


Here's my take on Chrissy's sketch :)

I designed the upper panel with diagonal sentiment in the silhouette studio (font : Chrushed) and cut it out with my cameo .

The 'birthday' part was cut with a CREAlies die.

I added washi tape on the card base, and added sparkle with a strip of gold peel off sticker, and finished off the card with a couple of rhinestones.

Hi there!

A one layer card is a challenge on its own... add a colored card base and you have a challenge² !

I played it safe by using a cream card base. Must admit I love the way it turned out considering the fact that it's all stamped 😯

I used:
  • Clear stamp set by Hampton art ( flower-joy )
  • Altenew Crisp inks: Parrot, Peach Perfect, Cotton Candy, Mango smoothie.
  • Versafine black ink.
  • Misti.

Inspired by the following challenges:

CASology : Diamond

Hi there!

Time for a new cue card at CASology !


I was staring at a line art image of a diamond to get inspiration for my card. Not knowing which direction the design will go. Turned the diamond upside down, and saw there was an "A" hiding in the diamond!

Instant inspiration 💭

I decided to focus on the sentiment and replaced the "A" in sparkle with the upside down diamond.

I used:
  • Silhouette studio for design.
  • Silhouette cameo for cutting.
  • Zig markers for smooshing the cut alphas.
  • Watercolor paper.
  • Fonts used: Atlantic cruise & Chettos Script.
  • Rhinestones to finish off the design.
