FS151 Casing Stef, CC251 Thank You

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

I have two cards to share with you today!!! My first card was for this weeks FS151 - SmilynStef. Not only do I enjoy Stef hosting the Inspiration Challenges each Saturday, but I really enjoy her clever and artistic stampin' style!!!

Not to long ago she made this beautiful card and I had to case it!!!

Here are the changes I made - different layout, I added a different sentiment, at last I added some butterflies and ribbon.

The *Agapanthus Cluster* image is an older Stampendous stamp. I think I bought it at Hobby Lobby!!! The sentiment is from the A Little Birthday Cheer Set from Stampin' Up.

Hope you like it???


Next is my card for this weeks CC251 - using Barely Banana, Dusty Durango and Basic Gray.

WOW - what a color combo...I'm in love!!! Who would have known that this combo works sooooo great together...make sure to try it!!!

I finally had a chance to ink up some of my new Stampin' Up Stamps I've bought a few months ago :)!!! I know what a poor neglected stamps - LOL!!! Now that I have less commitments I hope I get to use some more of my SU stamps :) !!!

I used the beautiful *For All You Do* Set. The layout is from this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch - SSSC50.

I started out by scoring my card base. Next I added the punched out border and the Urban Oasis DP. I finished it up with the Dusty Durango Ribbon.

The flowers were inked in the CC colors and I cut them out leaving a small white card base. After cutting them out I raised them with Stampin' Dimensionals. At last I inked the sentiment and added another small flower.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!! Make sure to come back tomorrow for a new sweet Valentines card :) !!!

Have a great day!!!

Two wonderful cards, Silke :D Great FS card. Love that image and the butterflies are a great touch. I had all but talked myself out of that SU set and now you've gone and tempted me to get it LOL! Just love the colours you used and the scoring on the white panel is great. Love the flower by the sentiment too. I'm all excited because I got that MS punch for Christmas and can't wait to use it!

Sharli Schaitberger said...

Both GORGEOUS cards!!! I saved the first one for the idea of sponging color behind a black silhouette - and then I saw the 2nd card and there is something SO appealing about it - I'll have to study that one! So, it's in my "Silke" folder, too! Nice job!

SmilynStef said...
