Fusion - Four of July Jars + Seize the Birthday Anything Goes

This card popped in my head as soon as I saw the  Fusion - Four of July Jars challenge earlier today. As you can see, I was inspired by the red, white and blue jars and the sketch.


I already had the white cardstock center panel leftover from another project and added the Papersmoochies sentiment before embossing it with the stars. The red MFT frame was adhered to the navy cardbase first, then the white panel inset and the stars scattered and adhered at varying heights.




I had a hard time getting a true color in these photographs. This close up is a little better than the full card photo.




As this card will be used for a friend celebrating her 4th of July birthday, I am entering it in the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes challenge.




Thanks for stopping by,

CASology Week 254: HOUSE

Welcome to Week 254 at CASology!




As soon as I saw the cue card this week, I pulled out the Memory Box Birdhouse Trio die to sit on my desk while I thought about what kind of card I needed.  The sentiment from Jane's Doodles Neighborhood stamp set is perfect for a thank you card we'll be needing later this summer. A Zig marker is used to add the blue watercolored sky directly onto a watercolor card base before the die cut is adhered.




Check out the Design Team cards for more great ideas!

CASology Week 253: CLOTHES

Welcome to Week 253 at CASology!




For some reason the word CLOTHES initially stumped me. Even after shopping with a few girlfriends and coming home with a selection of polka dot and gingham patterned papers that I bought because I thought they would be perfect for paper pieced baby clothes, the light bulb didn't go off right away. LOL




Three images from Lawn Fawn's Little Bundles stamp set are stamped and fussy cut before being hung them from a die cut Avery Elle bunting line. Aren't these bows perfect?!

The Lawn Fawn sentiment is curved slightly to follow the line of the oval MFT Mini-scalloped Stitched die .




The Design Team has some terrific inspiration for you this week!
