Five Card Upload...Whoohoo!!!

Hello everyone!!! This has been such a great Monday morning...we got 2 inched of rain over the weekend which we needed sooo badly!!! My DH is back from his weekend fishing tournament (he didn't win but had a great time) so all is well on the home front!!

Now, I don't want any of you to fall out (that's Texas talk for fainting) but I actually made 3...count them...3 CAS (Clean and Simple) cards this morning for the CAS15 challenge on Splitcoast!!!! I can't believe I actually made CAS cards and held off on the embellies and layers....Yikes!!! My DD Holly and my friend Jules will be sooo proud of me!!! The challenge was to use white, black and one other color from Stampin Up's Bold Brights group. I chose Green Galore, Brilliant Blue, and Only Orange. The green and orange cards have images from Rubbernecker's Party Time set and the blue one had Rubbernecker Shoe images and sentiment. I used different colored gingham dp from The Paper Studio, ribbons, Nestabilities to cutout the main images, and the Stampin Up Scalloped Border punch for the botton edges.

I made this card last weekend while my DH was away. I just had to use my Wisteria dp I got from Clear Dollar's soo gorgeous!!! The images from Rubbernecker's Party Time set were stamped with Elegant Eggplant onto the light dp and then stamped again on scraps of the Wisteria paper. The square presents were attached with tape and the front present was popped up with dimensionals. The frame is just toooo's a resin that looks like stone...I colored it with a Lavender Lace marker and attached with glue dots. The ribbon is a scrap...I just love the texture!!

The bow on the green present was paper pieced with another piece of Wisteria.

The sentiment from the same set was stamped with Elegant Eggplant onto the dp and attached to the back of the frame before the frame was attached. I don't think I'll be mailing this one....I know someome who I can hand deliver this one to!!

Stamps: Rubbernecker Party Time
Paper: Whisteria dp by Basic Grey, Creamy Caramel
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Lavender Lace
Accessories: Rhinestones, Ribbon, Resin Frame, Dimensionals, Nestabilities

This was a fun card to make....I wanted to do something a little grungy because I just received the Tim Holts Keyhole and wanted to use it with the K&Co. metal frame. I didn't have a bronze colored clip so I colored a silver one with a copic marker. Junkitz Summer Collection dp called Cousins was run through the cuttlebug, sanded, and sponged with Ranger Distress inks. The Rubbernecker Wildflower Silhouettes were stamped on the next layer by coloring the stamp with a marker. The RN French Script background was stamped over the flowers and then the edges were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and the Ink Blending tool.

The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of dp and attached to the back of the frame with glue dots. It was then attached to the card with redline tape. May Arts Ribbon and trim finish it off.

Stamps: Rubbernecker Party Time, French Script background, and Wildflower Silhouettes
Paper: Prism White, Sunflowers Medium, Suede Brown Dark, Junkitz dp
Ink: Ranger Distress inks Vintage Photo, Fried Brick, and Mustard Seed, Chocolate Chip, Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue, Summer Sun, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Tim Holtz Keyholes, K&Co. Metal Frame, Clip, May Arts Ribbon and Trim, Cuttlebug

Thanks for visiting today...hope you have a great day!!!
