Inks: Dew Drop Starlite Silver; Hero Arts Soft Granite; Distress Inks pumice stone, mustard seed, wild honey
Other: clear embossing powder; colored pencils; gamsol; Wendy Vecchi embossing paste; Wink of Stella clear pen; enamel dots

You Are My Sunshine- CAS 3



Though its not really the masking that Jennifer McGuire did on day three on Online Card Class CAS 3- One Layer Cards, it was inspired by the cards she made. I cit the word ‘sunshine out of some scrap card stock with my Silhouette and used it as a stencil.

Cardstock: yellow from Simon Says Stamp
Stamps: sentiment from Lillibean Soup
Inks: Distress Inks mustard seed, wild honey

Down The Rabbit Hole

I haven’t shared much scrapbooking lately, though that’s what I’ve been spending most of my craft time on. I am pleased with how this page turned out today. It’s a layout I started years ago at a Cosmo Cricket workshop. Today, I finally added photos! I’m glad I waited too, because the chipboard stickers were perfect for my daughter’s role as a flower girl in “Down the Rabbit Hole.”

Also, I was inspired to use the rabbit in the title after watching lesson 3 in May Flaum’s “Stamping For Scrapbookers” online class. I’ve been enjoying her video lessons this week.

Thanks So Much

This card was made for a challenge I saw a couple weeks ago, but now can’t find. Anyway, by the time I had it finished, it was to late to post and so it languished on my desk.

I’m very happy with with how the flowers turned out. This isn’t a color combo I would have come up with on my own, but I liked it in the challenge inspiration photo. I’m not as happy with the sentiment; this was my third attempt and the best of the bunch, but it’s still not right.
