A couple of cards ....

...  I've very late getting around to this week's CASology - CAS7 challenge, where the cue word is GREEN.  As green is probably my most favourite colour, I had to play along.  My immediate thought when I saw the cue word was FROG and then PRINCE - and the rest was easy.


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Heroines - Fairy Princess, WMS set from Help for Katie
Inks:  Distress - Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Spellbinders:  Postage Stamps (S4-348) #3
Accessories:  Card from stash

I made the sentiment by editing one of the sentiment's Claire Brennan made for the Help for Katie set and printing it onto white card.  I love the postage stamp die and used the middle size to cut out a square, inked the edges and then stamped this cute Frog Prince in the centre.  I coloured the frog with Promarkers and used a Sakura Stardust pen to add some shimmer to the Prince's crown.  This is a small square card - 4" x 4".  And this card is for my very own Frog Prince - my darling husband Jonathan.

My second card is for two challenges:

I used my Promarkers to make colour gradients in the Colour Q shades and then stamped on the "bugs".  I don't have any goggle eyes, so I stamped the eyes again on white card, cut them out and attached them to each bug.    The Less is More recipe is 3 - colours, 2 - words in the sentiment and 1 - embossing folder to represent "spots" - as in chicken pox!!!  I love these Paper Smooch stamps - they're such fun!  I'm on a bit of a square thing at the moment; this is much bigger than the first card at 5¼" x 5¼".


Stamps:  Paper Smooches - Healthy Vibes
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Promarkers (to match the ColourQ colours), Cuttlebug embossing folder; Card from stash


We have decided to have a very lazy weekend - still recovering from our holiday in California!!  Jonathan is catching up on UK football, Kathryn has been playing on the PC and I've had fun in my craft room.  I intend to play some more too!  Do check back tomorrow for my latest CR84FN61 card - the colours are lovely.  Have a super weekend.

Both great cards. I love the bright colours on the get well card (surprise!) and I love the soft sponging on the prince card (and that cheeky looking frog!). I know I'm late (we were in Kalamazoo for the last few days), but I'm still glad you played along with CASology's green challenge!
