Lift Challenge #108

Good morning:)
I immediately got an idea  when I saw the current Lift Challenge.  Such a relief when you have been  searching for your inspiration:) The challenge is about this card form Dawn Mc Vey:

We're supposed to follow the sketch 
and add a background with stripes. She used the floral stamps from  the Quilted Summer set from Papertrey Ink.  And I have that set too:) Dawn is known for using bold colors  and adding lots of contrast. 
I gave it a twist with a bit more muted colors:

This is the result in shades of my favorite color:

Enjoy your day! 

Supplies Paper: From my stash Dies: MFT stitched rectangle dies PTI Quilted Summer  Stamps: PTI Quilted Summer & Mini Blooms Ink: Versamagic Sea Breeze SU Baja Breeze & Lucky Limeade Other: Rhinestones

CAS(E) this sketch # 178

When your inspiration is flushed  down the sink it's always a good thing  to start with a sketch :) So I made a card using the current sketch  from CAS(E) this sketch:

And took it literally.   I like CAS and this is very CAS.  With only a few details;  I guess that's my style. 

I used the Monthly Moments mini slide  frame dies and one of the Ombre Builder  stamps from Papertrey Ink.  I also used my Misti for the first time;  it really is incredible! 

It's warm and sunny here;  and the weather forecast  for the weekend is great.  I hope you have a great weekend too! 



Yesterday I attended a workshop handlettering  with Ellen, Inge and SandraMariken had to cancel the workshop  due to sad circumstances. The company of these three was great  but the workshop was a bit disappointing;  we paid too much and got less... But we're lucky to have You Tube;  we will work it out at home:)

I needed a card to thank a sweet friend. At the moment I have a lack of inspiration.. Finally I came up with blue, stripes and a handlettering stamp:

A sequin to add a bit of bling and some hemp cord. CAS in my favorite colors:)

Thanks for stopping by! Stella
