Just a Touch of Silver

Here's my CAS card for the challenge at Casual Fridays
CFC91: The object of this game? Simple! Add silver to your CAS project.It can be a card, layout, tag, long as it's CAS and has at least a touch of silver
My touch of silver is in the vase. I stamped it with the Tree top in CF set Calm and Gentle then embossed it. I added SUCrystal effects to make it look glassy. Flowers are from SU Happy Harmony and sentiment is SU The Art of Life. The vase was created using SU lge oval punch.

Monogrammed Note card

Inspiration photos for the Papertrey February Bloghop
And here's my take on the challenge. To make my notecard I used a couple of the flourishes from PTI Fancy Flourishes and the flowers are from Beautiful Blooms II. I would have liked a fancier/scrollier S but that's all I had to work with so I used a bit of gold embossing to dress it up.

Owl Lovers

Here is a cute little Owl Wedding couple (could be used as an anniversary couple). I made them for the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp White on White optionally using Cuttlebug folders. 
I used the folders in behind the hearts, layered them up with dimensional tape. I made a border at the bottom with one of the narrow border folders. Don't remember any of the names of them though. I believe they are still current. I used some feather boa to make the wedding dress. Punch is from SU. Embossing on the breast and head of the owls was done by using an embosslits folder from SU. I did a tiny bit of sponging just to give some definition.

Love Card

My third and last post for today. I am entering this one at Casual Fridays and Have a Heart at Simon says Stamp I made another "Moon and Back" card just because I love the saying!! Inspired by the song by Dolly Parton "From Here to the Moon and Back" A card that could be used for many occasions. 
I used the tree trunks from Casual Fridays stamp set Calm and Gentle. Punched out a few hearts etc.

Watercolour Card

Another card today! This one is for the Papertrey Watercolor Challenge This a very new technique for me but I like the results. I never make alot of sympathy cards but felt this was a perfect one for just that. I used Betsy's technique by watering down the inks on acetate. Worked great! 
Stamps; PTI Through the Trees, SUretired Branch Out
Paper; PTI White SU Avacado
Inks; Versamark and ink refills SU Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Marina Mist. 
Gold embossing powder.

To the Moon and Back

CFC89:  With the Grammys coming up in a few days, we thought it would be fun to have a song inspired challenge.  Choose a song you love, then create a CAS project that is inspired by it!

The song my inspiration came from is "From Here to the Moon and Back" by Dolly Parton and Kris Kristofferson from the movie Joyful Noise. 
Any word could be added with a stamp above "to the Moon and Back" like Love you, Miss you, etc.
Supplies; SU Owl punch and Branch from Bird punch
I inked up the edges of the circle cut out to make a moon.

Stamped Pillow box

Hi again, our weather is back on track. Yay for that! We are back near the thawing mark. We sure had a few cold days last week. 
For This Weeks Make It Monday "To stamp a pillow box", this is my project. I used PTI stamp sets Through the Trees for the little tree and a sentiment from Little Bitty Bird. Ink and paper from SU. I stamped then masked the little trees to stamp the continuing sentiment overtop. I made the flower by cutting circles out of some satin fabric then heating the edges slightly to make them curl. I sewed a couple of beads into the center. 
So that's it, thanks for stopping to take a look!!
