CASology Challenge: Insect

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a card for the CASology Challenge where the cue word is "insect".  I took a deep dive into my collection to create this card.  I actually don't have a lot of insect stamps besides butterflies.

I was kind of going for a graphic French Country look (I think, LOL!) with the blue, yellow and white along with the bee theme.  I'm not sure if I pulled it off or not, but I think it's cute. Great for a "welcome to the neighborhood" basket or something like that!

 

Here's the "aerial view"

It was fun breaking out some older supplies this time.  I think everything on this card is over 5 years old and finally got some much needed love.

 

Thanks for joining me today!

Papertrey Ink 10 Year Anniversary Challenge: On My Couch

Hi Everyone!

I'm traveling back to 2009 with this stamp set from Papertrey Ink called On My Couch.  Papertrey Ink is currently celebrating their 10 year anniversary with fun challenges using stamp sets from over the years.  I chose this set because when I bought it, I loved creating little home scenes with furniture and accessories on my cards.  Perfect for a new neighbor or friend that needs comfort.

I pulled out some patterned paper from the Stamp-a-Faire 2014 paper pack to create a 40s vintage theme.  I used a Monthly Moments Journal Card 2 for my scene and colored in all the elements with Copics.

I have seen others doing this really cute paper strip accent on the inside of their cards and thought I'd try that with some gingham paper from Authentique.

Thanks for joining me--I'll be back with another card for this challenge tomorrow.
