Geranium CAS and Info


Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Hubby and I had a great time visiting with our family and hated to see them leave. 

This is my last card for the Splitcoaststampers CAS DT. It is challenge#274 and I gave the challenge for May Flowers.  It was a fun time being on the team and I have a new love for CAS cards. I used a geranium from Sparkle N Sprinkle. My card was so simple. I just cut out two ovals and placed one on top of the other in an offset style. The geranium stem and flowers are colored with Copics. I hand cut the geranium and popped it on the top oval.

I have decided I must have a break. My sister and I are going to Atlanta this week to a couple of  scrapbook stores. Actually, they are outside Atlanta in Roswell and Marietta, GA. She has been there and said they are super. Can't wait. Then, I have some other things I need to get done so I'll be away from my blog after this post for a short while. I'm sure I'll miss everyone but you know how hectic things get. 

Recipe:
Stamps-Sparkle N Sprinkle/Geraniums, Inspired by Stamping/Flowers Bloom (sentiment)
Paper-PTI white cardstock, unknown gingham
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Copics/G21, G24, R20, R32

Brenda such a delightful card!! I love the clean white with the gingham. The hand cut geranium looks beautiful atop it! Have fun with your sis and enjoy your break! Life does seem pretty busy lately :)

Joann Burton said...

I love your card and how you designed it. Looks like we are going to get some rain here. So enjoy Atlanta with your sis. How nice...Hugs, joann

Shirley said...

Lovely, Brenda! I like how you did the contrasting die cut ovals and the fussy cut flower too! Very pretty sentiment and wonderful card!

Shirley said...

Wow, I really like how you masked and reverse masked and the stenciling too! Really vibrant and beautiful. Hope you had fun with your GC's last weekend.

Shirley said...

A beautiful card Brenda. Wonderfully colored Geranium.

NanaConnie said...

Oh, Benzi, those geraniums are colored perfectly! They exactly match the ones I have growing on my back patio. I love the way you did the offset die cut behind the image and the green gingham is marvelous. I can't believe your term with SCS is already over. Seems like it just began a couple of weeks ago. :-D I'm off for travels starting tomorrow and may be MIA from visits for a couple of weeks.

Loll Thompson said...

Hi Benzi. Your flowers are so pretty and I LOVE that you've paired them with the bright green gingham - awesome!

Enjoy your time away ... and have fun shopping!! :) You deserve a break ... I don't know how you kept up with your CAS DT and DD DT ... you've been so busy! Take some time to relax! Loll xx

Lynne in NI said...

Oooh that sounds like a 'dangerous' shopping trip with your sis ;) Have a fab time ... look forward to seeing your purchases!!!
Beautiful card, love how you used your gingham base xx

MiamiKel said...

Stunning coloring ~ we have a beautiful geranium on the front porch and you've captured the essence of it beautifully with your card! Glad you were able to get a visit in, that's always a nice thing!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Beautiful card, Benzi, and have a wonderful trip with your sister! See you when you have time to come back. :)

JD/ Jill said...

Great CAS card. Enjoy your time with your sister and Happy shopping. Would love to be shopping with you. (but I haven't even used the stuff I purchased in my last shopping spree...i think I'm addicted to crafts...smile)

Ajascha said...

Eine wunderschöne Blume in einem schönen Rahmen, Brenda. Die Karte wirkt sehr elegant.
Ich wünsche dir eine schöne Zeit in Atlanta. Habe viel Spaß dort.
Liebe Grüße, Anja

Joanne (jojot) said...

so glad to hear you were going on a LSS adventure with your sister....I am envious as neither my sister nor any of my very close friends are into stamping......that is why I find such joy in the SCS community...take your time and get things done, including some relaxing....hugs, Joanne

Carol (Gingerbeary8) said...

Benzi-I just love the way you did the die cuts on this card. What a sweet design feature. You have created a beauty here. Hope your trip to Atlanta is fabulous. My Mother asked me to come home so I will be going in a couple weeks. She is not doing well at all.
Bear Hugs,
Carol

Hugs

Oh, Oh, Oh, I think I have the SnS geranium set, so must see if this stamp is part of that set. Lovely coloring - so pretty and I'm loving the offset gingham scallop oval behind the focal point. So very effective. Liked the way you've added the dropped corner sentiment too. Great card. TFS & Hugs
