Things we Love and Seeing Stars

The Featured Stamper at Splitcoaststampers this week is
Lisa Kubica.

I hadn't "met" her before and so enjoyed her gallery.

I chose this card to CASE.

I loved this triangular piece with the flowers so I shamelessly CASEd her card.

I did use different flower stamps and embossing instead of stitching.

I used the Lil' Inker Stitched Square die and cut the square in half.

Sticky notes masked off the edges so I could stamp the flowers up to but not over the edge.

After stamping the flowers and leaves, I used a damp  Aqua Painter to spread the colors.

This card measures 3 1/4" x 6 1/4".

While I was at it, I thought I'd play with the 
CAS and Color Challenges at SCS too.

This is the card I did for both of these challenges.

The CAS challenge is to use stars and 
the Color Challenge is Real Red, Marina Mist and Night of Navy.

I pulled out the Starry Die from Verve for the base of this card.

I die cut the stars from a piece of white and snippets of
red, navy and Marina Mist.

The stars fit back into the negative spaces of the white piece and 
the extras were scattered around.

It was really quick and fun.

I'm entering into the 

 I'm glad you stopped by.

Both are just awesome! I love the design on that first card with the beautiful flowers and embossing on the side. The stars are spectacular! Wonderful cards Bonnie!

Marisa said...

What a fabulous layout on the first card - great case! Way to rock the Verve die too - love those layered stars :)

Loll said...

Two fabulous cards Bonnie. Especially LOVE the triangle flower card. Even though it's the same layout as Lisa's card, you have made it your own with your soft colouring and flowers and added scalloped edge and stitching detail. Very feminine, soft and delicate. xx

What stunning cards Bonnie - love the CASE one - that layout is a stunner with the bold flowers, and the second one is striking - love that you have inserted the coloured cutouts into white base.

I just love the first card with those beautiful flowers, the design is awesome!! The stitched edge is such a lovely detail.
The second card is festive and fun, so perfect for anyone with a July birthday.
I'm CASEing your cards for sure.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Love both of your cards, but the first one is my favorite. I love the design of the first one.

Bobby said...

I love the way you veered from Lisa's card and made yours tall and skinny, Bonnie. The stamped flowers are lovely. I just may have to CASE your CASE. Love the other one, too. Very patriotic and masculine.

Oh Bonnie, I'm doing catchup this afternoon, but I'd had a glimpse of this pretty earlier, and had to zip back for a closer look, and to tell you how much I love this unique design treatment. The flowers look so beautiful with the side triangle design, and brilliant to mask off the outer edges so the nice white edges framed the beautiful blooms. Also love the very patriotic stars card too. You are a wonder, Miss B. Hope the weekend has been great. TFS & Hugs

Pam said...

Love these, especially the first. I just may need to case that. :)

Wow--you're on a roll, Bonnie! Always love your work & these are just great! I really love the unusual design of the first card--will have to remember to try that! Gorgeous stamping & can't beat red, white & blue! Enjoy the 4th!

I must try and remember this design to case too! Just love the delicate flowers but bright colours you used - so eye catching.
