CAS Colours & Sketches #171

Hey!

I'm popping by today to share my Design Team card for this weeks CAS Colours & Sketches challenge HERE

This week is sketch week and our hostess for April, Louise has another fun sketch for you to use to get your creative juices flowing...




This was such a fun sketch and the hardest part was choosing which stamps to use! Anyway, this is what I settled on...




I decided to pair a few tiny flowers from Background Builders: Vines with a leaf from Natures Treasures I and a sentiment from Flower Power #5. My colours were determined by the new ColourQ Challenge colours seen HERE and below.




To create my curves I used a circle die and a pencil to lightly draw a stamping line. I started with the leaves and added the fussy cut flowers. I then filled in some gaps with the teeny tiny flowers and dots. To finish the card off I added some tiny rhinestones and some Wink Of Stella to the larger flowers.




I look forward to seeing you in the CC&S gallery HERE and be sure to check out the rest of the CC&S Design Team inspiration.

Ok, that's all from me toda. Sorry it has been so quiet around here this past week or so, it is full steam ahead for Happy Stampers Festival show prep. Eeeek! I am a mixture of excited, nervous and worried all at the same time - LOL! 

Anyway, must dash, lots to be done while I have a bean free afternoon ;) Thanks for stopping by and hanging in there with me in my absence, it is much appreciated.

CAS Colours & Sketches #170

Hey!

Sorry I have been so quiet creatively this past week, with being ill and then the anniversary of my mothers death this week I haven't been feeling so great. I have spent time organising and preparing for Happy Stampers Festival and will share some photos soon ;)

Anyway, I'm back today with my design team card for this weeks CAS Colours & Sketches challenge HERE. This week is colour week and our hostess this month Louise has chosen this colour combo to inspire us...




Though the combo features a favourite of mine, turquoise I was a little stumped at first with the theme of my card! 

This is what I came up with...




With the Happy Stampers Festival fast approaching I have some more restocks coming at the weekend, English Country Garden Butterflies & Natures Treasures II being a couple of them. So I thought I would give them some LOVE and I think they suit the colours too :)




I needed some extra help with my creativity, so I turned to the new Freshly Made Sketches sketch seen HERE and above for my card. 




After colouring sections of the butterfly in with my SU! markers, I added some clear Wink of Stella and I went overboard on the tiny rhinestone embellishment to the swirly leaves ;)

Ok, that's all from me today, I will be back with the design team and guest designer with a Uniko Challenge reminder. Until then, thanks for stopping by and hope to see you HERE in the CC&S gallery :)

CAS Colours & Sketches #169

Hey!

It's Thursday AGAIN (these weeks are flying by), which means it is time for another challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. This week HERE out hostess Louise has a fun sketch for you to try...




I was looking at the different sized circles on the sketch first of all to determine which stamp sets to use. I nearly opted for the recently released Fun Flowers, but ended up using the flowers from Flower Power #3 and I LOVE Coffee...




I had recently purchased some SU! It's My Party Washi Tape, so my colours were determined by the ones I chose to use on my card for the rectangles.




This week everything has been back on schedule for the beans after the Easter break, which means we have been back to playgroup. One day back and I come down with ANOTHER cold after 2 weeks clear :( I'm hoping that my bean free afternoon of rest and a little creative therapy will make me feel better! 

Anyway, enough of my woes, be sure to stop by the CAS Colours & Sketches blog HERE to see how the rest of the design team have used the sketch. I look forward to seeing you in the gallery :)

Thanks for stopping by :)
