Every other post a CAS card means we’re due a new one today! Well, technically yesterday, but I just felt like posting up the other one first, heh.

I just love the colours of this one, it could be both summer and autumn inspired! As usual I have made the CAS card with a Lili of the Valley pre-coloured image. I think they are just perfect for this purpose! The sentiment I decided to use is also by Lili of the Valley; a stamp this time. The papers are from First Edition paper, and the ribbon from a local shop.

For my sister

This is the birthday card I made for my sister earlier this year. I let her have some requests as such and what she listed was aqua and pink colours, Victoria secret themed and bold.

I instantly regretted asking, but what could I do but try to make something along those lines. I decided on a cute fairy, by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary and coloured it in with copics, and added sparkles and liquid pearls to the wings. I have coloured a couple of images since which is an improvement, but I was quite happy with this when I did colour it in. Everything is a learning curve, right? (I really must get cracking on those colouring classes I bought soon after I coloured this image!) I punched out loads of butterflies using the Tim Holtz die in various aqua and pink papers and used rows of pearls to give them bodies. I used a deep pink, almost red to frame the various elements and punched out S and V, my sisters initials coincidently! I have used flowers and big pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts, the lace I believe I purchased at Bikuben and the ribbon may be the Hobby House.

Red headed fairy

Time for another card where I coloured in the image myself. I have made a few more of these lately, compared to earlier in the year. I have yet to get cracking on Alyce’s wonderful colouring class, but the plan is to do some this weekend!

Anyway, the image I decided to colour is a Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps image. I figured I’d go out of my comfort zone and give her a completely different hair colour, so I chose red, as it’s reasonably close to normal, heh. I have used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from a local shop, dies and punchers by Tom Holtz, QuicKutz and Martha Stewart, and the sentiment is by Kort og Godt. I have used paper from a Tim Holtz pad for both the pink and teal colours.

A summery card today, as we are having the first snow of the winter. I didn’t even think it was winter yet to be honest, but those white flurries covering the ground seems to be winning that argument…

I have coloured in one of Sylvia Zet’s Wee Stamps with copics; the sheep is so cute! I added a sentiment with a stamp from Lili of the Valley, various flowers and cream ribbon by Wild Orchid Crafts, made a bow using a Tim Holtz die, some butterflies and leaves using Martha Stewart punchers, some random feathers and buttons.
