CTS#69 and Online Card Class

I've been making a few cards this be prepared for a loooooong post!

This first one is for the CAS(E) This Sketch #69 challenge.  Here's the sketch...

And here's my card (I really was true to the sketch!)  :)

I also used some of the partial embossing techniques from Online Card Class - Clean and Simple 3.  I embossed the dots leaving a small 1 inch space in the middle for the sentiment.  The sentiment is from PTI and is stamped in black.  I layered the flourishes (I cut three of each) and adhered them with glossy accents. I added a small pink border, then adhered two small pink pearls.  Done....

Now for a few more cards I've created this week...some using techniques from the card class and some just for fun.

 This is a one layer birthday card created using techniques from the CAS card class...I LOVE how it turned out!

This is another one layer card created just for fun....

I think I made this card for one of the LIM challenges, but never got it posted.  I seem to have trouble getting my photographs done lately...nothing wrong with my camera...I'm just lazy!

This last card is one I made for one of my grandsons.  I used the robot silhouette cut file that I designed and popped him over a background that I sponged ink over a gear template. Turned out kinda cool...hope he likes it!  If you'd like to have this file, just click on the link and download.

CASology 85 & Addicted to CAS 33

I needed a couple of cards this week and after I finished them, I realized that they fit the challenges at CASology and Addicted to CAS.  The challenge this week at CASology is to make a card using the cue word carnival.

Here's my take on this cue word:

The carousel horse is a stamp from Flourishes.  I cut the shape out with my Cameo, then stamped the image and colored it with Copics.  I made the "base" on the Cameo, then die cut some stars to add to it. The banner was also cut with the Cameo and the sentiment is in the same stamp set as the horse.  I added a pearl at the top of the pole...and then added lots of glitter with the wink of stella pen.  I layered the horse on a white piece that was embossed with a PTI embossing mat.  The horse is slightly pop dotted on the panel and the panel is popped up off the card base.  

The cue word for Addicted to CAS is:

Here's my card for the challenge:

I have no idea why the crib looks yellowed (grrrrr... it's actually a nice bright white!) The crib die is a new one and I'm not too sure I like it.  The die itself is pink and it seems to rub off on the paper when you cut with it.  I had to run it through the Cuttlebug several times before it would cut add some shims. So, I'm not too sure I would recommend it.  It's pretty, but difficult to work with. The crib "bonnet" cut just fine.  I added a few pearls and a flowers, popped it on an embossed background and popped it up on a card base.  The most difficult part was cutting the crib and photographing the card.
