Flourish CASE challenge

Challenge of the CASE a flourishes designer or someone who is a friend or the such.

Here is the card I cased....Honestly, I really had a hard time finding one I wanted to case as I have become a more simple card maker and am not into too much stuff on my cards. They are lovely, but I have a hard time taking gorg cards and simplifing... I think it is the influence of my husband who prefers it that way....and since my 6yr old loves everything I make, is the the only adult critic I show things to on a frequent basis! :) I live to please! :)

Flourishes Peaches stamp set with SU cardstock and designer paper from a scrap kit....probably from long ago. Michaels cheap orange satin ribbon....twine that found on Amazon for cheap to make my order up to a 25$ to get my free shipping :) hehe... the tag is a sticker from the SU kit also. Copics were YG 03, 17, 67--YR 07, 04 and some other one or two.

Image cut out with Out of Box technique with spellbinder label and backed with the same die.

Lily Celebration!

I made this card for another of the birthdays we have coming up in a few days. My sister in la I think will enjoy this one!

Main image from Flourishes colored with copics R90s or is it 80s...85, 83, 81 I guess
cut out with a spellbinder and edged in stickles.

The pink paper cut like ribbon is stamped wih Papertrey Ink sentiment of Celebrate from "out on a limb".

Both the pink and striped paper is from a TAC (the angel company) that is old and I used it from the leftovers from a series of scrapbook pages I made.

Green CS is wasabi from SU and the embossing is a cuttlebug folder swiss dots.
The pink dots are from michaels long ago and were not even rom the scrapping section!

Entered into a noon time Flourishes Challenge--- Sketch

Bright and Beachy Birthday Card!

In about 2 weeks our families will be coming together to celebrate 8 birthdays for June and July....and I will need several girly cards and felt inspired to actually create!

My card features K and company patterned paper (summery set on clearance forever ago.)

Silver cord on the right hand side from SU.

The Mermaid from Kraftin Kimmie is colored in Copics and mounted on pumpkin SU cardstock.

3 random brown rhinestones from clearance somewhere.

Tag made from Papertrey Ink die with "wish big" stamped 4 times from the matching "Tiny Tags" Stamp Set.

The Happy Birthday sentiment at the top is from Papertrey Ink set "Its a Celebration"

I love this card. Bright and Cheery, sunny and Beachy and Fun and not too busy that my husband didn't like it!

Beachy challenge from Totally Papercrafts Challenge--I added the sand so she would be beachin it under the sea....closest stamp I had for a beachy scene.

My craftin Mojo just finally came back after my copic class at my local stamp store and have actually kept making things. I made several items after the monday class, then here today I made little mermaid and started several other items! Thanks for looking!
