Can You Case It# 141

Today we have another challenge over at Can You Case It?  We have a sketch for you this week.

Here is the card I created.

The base of the card is Rich Coral cardstock.  I then cut a piece of the Magical Journey Pattern Paper.
I then stamped the sentiment from Cake Time on Whip Cream Cardstock with Black Licorice ink and detail cut the word out.  I added the sentiment to the card with foam squares.
To finish the card, I added a few small Sparkle Dots to the card.  Enjoy!

Journey Blog Hoppers November Hop

Welcome to the Amazing Journey Blog Hoppers Hop!  This month's theme is Be Amazing  I'm so happy you're hoppin' along!  If you arrived from Ruth Cooper blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok too!  Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

Now, let's get to my projects. First the card.

I used our Be Amazing color, Outrageous Pink for the base of the card.  I then cut a layer of Be Amazing Pattern Paper for the top.  I then die cut a Star-dom star from Outrageous Pink cardstock.  Next, I stamped the sentiment, Be Awesome Today, from the So Pretty stamp set with Black Licorice ink on Whip Cream Cardstock.  I then splattered Turbo Teal silk over the tag, punched a star hole into the tag and tied the tag to the card with Black Licorice Twine.
To finish the card, I added some Tinsel Trim to the bow for the tag and added some Sparkle Dots to the stars on the card.

Now for the project.
I created this "gift bag" with one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 piece of Turbo Teal Cardstock.  I added a strip of stars die cut from Outrageous Pink Cardstock and added them to the top of the bag.
Here is a close up of the tag.

So, let me share with you my card first.

I started with a piece of Cranberry Bliss Cardstock for the base of my card.  I then cut a layer of Kiwi Slice Cardstock, which I stamped Retro Dangles with Kiwi Slice ink. 
I then used the Create a Bow Mini Die and Cranberry Bliss Cardstock to create the bow.  I then cut out the holly leaves from Journey Blooms Holiday Set with Fresh Forest Cardstock.  I added some Rainbow Drops to the top for berries.
Next I die cut a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock with Journey Circles and stamped the sentiment from Annual Celebration and Cranberry Bliss ink.

Now for the project.
I chose to make a K-cup holder that can be used as a hostess gift, etc.  I used the same supplies as above.

Can You Case it? #140

Can You Case it is back!  We are now running bi-monthly challenges.  Our challenge this week is a color challenge.
Here is the card I created.
I started the card with a layer of Oatmeal Cookie, Summer Days and Orange Creamcicle cardstock.  I then took a piece of Oatmeal Cookie and stamped the leaves from Autumn Days with Dark Roast ink.  I sliced the piece in half on a diagonal.  I attached this layer to the card.
I then stamped the sentiment, "You're nothing short of my everything" from P.S. Greetings with Dark Roast ink on the space between the leaves layer.
I then splattered some Gold Silk over the card.
To finish the card, I wrapped Journey Natural Twine around the whole card, added a piece of Oatmeal Cookie Satin Ribbon and tied a bow.  Enjoy!
Come join us in the challenge.
