For You

Hi ya friends,
It's been a bit crazy 'round these parts but things are finally settling down. I got a chance to finish my CAS class, which I really enjoyed. I haven't done all of my homework yet, but I'll get to it like the good student that I am. But today, I have created a couple of cards using the free digi offered on Avery Elle's blog for their challenge.
I hadn't heard of them until the CAS class & fell in LUV with their stamps---> especially the background sets, so I *had* to order a couple :) One cool thing I saw is they also provide the svg file that will cut each image- I haven't seen anyone else do that!

Here's the inspiration pic:
Here's my first card, a la CAS:
 I created an ombre effect with the chevrons by cutting them out in 3 different shades of yellow. I added some crystal fine glitter around the frame, I colored the flowers & then popped them up on the leaves for dimension.

Here's card #2, not so CAS:
I enlarged the image slightly ;) to make it the focal point. The flowers are fussy cut & popped up. The little chevrons across the tickets were the left-over pieces from the die cuts. I cut out the sentiment & popped that up. Lastly, I added pearls with my partner in crime- my Viva pen along the ticket frame.

That's it for now. Oh, this weekend I got my flip camera to work! I thought it had died because it hadn't turned on for a couple of years, but thanks to the fabulous tip by ShandtinaSays on You Tube I got it to work! Soooo, there may be some more videos headed your way---> if you can stand to see more! *Ü*


  1. Great look on your first card with the chevrons and great take on the inspiration photo.

    Your 'not so CAS' card is super.

  2. Both cards are lovely! I really need to play with my chevron dies more often-- I love how you used them here!

  3. Your use of chevrons is so pretty! I really love both cards! Terrific!

  4. Pretty! Love the ombre look on the first one.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment :) So appreciated!
