ShowCASe Challenge #13

It's time for SYSC #13!  Our theme for this challenge is "thanks":

I started by stamping the little thanks from Thanks A Million repeatedly as a background.  I stamped some starbursts from Happy Everything on top of that, then added the second part of the sentiment (Thanks A Million) in darker ink.  I adhered all my layers to the card base, including a strip cut with the rounded edge from Stitched Border Trio dies.  I cut the large word thanks die last and adhered it on the card.

Thanks for stopping by! You can find all the details for this challenge on the SYSC blog.

Cutting it close to the deadline, so this week's card is pretty simple and close to the sketch.

Sending Sunshine

I made this cheerful card for my Clearly Whimsy stamps card of the week.

I stamped the sun rays (Up Up and Away) in light yellow on a white panel.  I stamped the text background (Basic Backgrounds & Borders) on a light green panel and attached a swoopy strip that I cut using the Stitched Border dies.  I cut a circle of patterned paper and stamped the sentiment on it (Up Up and Away Additions).  I added two simple strips of blue cardstock and a button to finish off the sentiment layer.

I used this week's sketch to make a sweet card to send to my sister to hopefully lift her spirits.

SYSC #12

Welcome to another ShowCASe Your Style Challenge! 

This week we have a sketch, created by Denise:

I pulled out Time For Tea and its Additions and used the teacups as my focal points.

I stamped the teacups on different patterned papers and cut them out. I popped them up against some squares, and added a little border and the sentiment.  

I hope you'll have a chance to play along with us, all the details can be found on the SYSC blog.

Whimsy Birthday

For my Whimsy card this week, I went pretty clean and simple.  I angled a white panel on a white base, and stamped 3 balloons (Happy Everything) on it.  I cut Happy (large happy word die) from orange cardstock and stamped triangles (Basic Backgrounds & Borders 2) in darker orange ink.  I cut birthday (large birthday word die) from darker orange cardstock three times, stacked them together, and adhered both words to my card front.
