A Corner of Love

Yes, it's me with another post and it will be the last one this week.

This card is for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers, QFTD150. The Queen is Beate! Who doesn't know Beate if you are ever on SCS. She does so many wonderful video tutorials for us so we'll have many techniques to use. Plus, her cards and projects are beautifully done.

I cased this card from Beate's gallery. It is one of her CAS cards. If you turn the card upside down, you'll see what I did. Also, I didn't do the scoring and placed a ribbon on mine.

Have a wonderful weekend. Hope it warms up for everyone.

A Case

My 2nd post for today. I didn't post anything for almost a week and had two yesterday and I'll probably have a couple today. Occasionally, that is the way it works.
My friend and blogging pal, Bonnie, was named the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoaststampers (FS312).  This is the card I cased from her super gallery of mostly CAS cards. I just love the sled image she used but didn't have it. So, I'm using this adorable image from Meljen's Designs to case her card. I added my Merry Christmas sentiment on the inside.

I colored with Copics and added some Stampin'Up! Dazzling Diamonds on the snow.

Bonnie, I sure hope you have been enjoying this week seeing all the cards made just for you.

I'm also entering this card into the February Christmas Challenge on Splitcoaststampers: SCSCCFEB13.

I failed to mention last week that my Funky  card won top 3 honors at Inspired by Stamping. I don't enter a lot of challenges so it was awesome to find I had won two on the same day.  My blogging pal Colleen Dietrich is on the IBS DT and she has certainly inspired me with all her awesome cards using their products , so much that I have placed and received an order I can't wait to use.

Merry Little Christmas CASE

I'm so in love with snowmen and this one has a little birdie, too. That makes it extra fun.  I really like that the snowman is out of the box. He is a Sassy Cheryl digi-Blinkies Snowday Dreaming.

Stacy Morgan/Twinshappy on Splitcoaststampers asked me to do a sample for the challenge on SCS (SCSCCFEB13). This is for the February Fan Club Christmas challenge starting 2/1/13. You must be a fan club member to join this challenge. You can find it in the forum under monthly themes. I'm really excited about it and plan to make a few cards each month so I'll be ready for next Christmas.

The theme is:  May I *case* you? Case anyone on SCS and give a link to the creation you cased. Be sure to change at least 2 details of the original. I am doing a case of this adorable bag by jaydekay.

I embossed  the panel on top of the striped dp with a Cuttlebug snowflakes folder. The image is colored with Copics and cut out. I cut out my sentiment and tried to do it as jaydekay did hers by marking with a black marker.

CCEE Stampers-Hot Talk

Joanne Grzelak is our hostess for this last challenge of the month at CCEE Stampers. What a fun one it is! We in the Northern Hemisphere are in the midst of winter, so let's think HOT. Create a card that is 'hot' in temperature, theme, or taste. Could be a sun, a hot pepper, a summer scene, a romance theme...the variations are endless.
For my card, I decided on taste, something HOT that will warm me up when it's cold outside. Although, it has been rather warm where I live. It was 73 here Tuesday. Of course, that brought on a tornado warning in the wee hours (3:00 a.m.) on Wednesday morning.  It is now colder now after the storms. I have small tree limbs all over the front lawn....another job for hubby to collect all that.  
I went with a CAS card just cutting my circles, paper piecing my cup, adding some Liquid Applique for the foam, and a sentiment. It's finished quickly.  It does make me want to go get a cup of hot chocolate from the kitchen. Hmmmm
