ATCAS #65 and Stamplorations Inspiration Project Post #21




Hi everyone!!!!!


I made two CAS cards last night.  My first card I made as a CASE for Vicki's card over at the Stamplorations Blog.  First time I'm joining in the fun over at Stamplorations!!!
Vicki has made a lovely CAS card with a sweet little bird on it, which inspired me to pull out a bird stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Here's Vicki's card:


and the card I've made:





The sentiment stamp is from MFT.  
Coloured the bird with koki pens and given it some shine with 3D Clear Gloss.
Added a single rhinestone and it was done!!!




It's been ages since I last played at ATCAS.
The code word for the current challenge is 'Butterfly'  


I've made this card for the challenge:





The sentiment is from MFT and the butterfly from a stamp set by Crafty Individuals.
Coloured the butterflies with koki pens and given it some shine with 3D Clear Gloss.
Added a black strip at the bottom and a single rhinestone.




Thanks so much for spending some time with me - always a pleasure to have you here!!!

Oh, Petra. These are both priceless. Love how CAS they are and really show how many styles you can master. I thought I might see your bird visitor from the other day perched atop this bird card--how funny would that be. So, I think you are spoiling me, because I can now wake up in the morning and see what you have created while I have been sleeping--such a breakfast treat! Have a great evening.

Wowzas, Petra! Clean and simple looks good on you!! I am always mesmerized when people can pull it off so well because I rarely make a CAS design that I like. And I'm SOOOOOOOooo happy you're joining in the fun over at STAMPlorations! You'll love it there!

Petra, last time I visited you were super busy with your crocheting and home decor projects and I come back to find that you have made so many cards which I have just been looking back at and all so lovely with little extra and unusual design features which add oodles of interest and all in your own unique style! I adore these two cute CAS cards and the cute bird on the first and then the pretty little butterfly, and both with sweet sentiments. x
