Can You Case It? #142

Can you believe it is December already?  Where has the time gone?  It seems like just yesterday we were starting school and getting ready for Halloween.
Either way, I love Christmas.  I love the smells, the colors, the sounds, all of it. 
Today, we have a color challenge for you at Can You Case It?  The more I looked at these colors, the more I liked them.

Here is the card I created


I started the card with a piece of Whip Cream and Pretty Pansy cardstock.  Next, I took a piece of Whip Cream cardstock and stamped the Snow burst snowflakes with Clear Pigment Ink.  I then took Silver PanPastel and rubbed over the top.  Tada!  I beautiful, silvery background.
Next, I took a piece a strip of Whip Cream Cardstock and stamped the Noel from Noel Chirp in Pretty Pansy ink.  I tore the end off of the strip and adhered it to the card.  I then took some silver washi tape I had in my stash, on either side of the sentiment.  Then, I wrapped a piece of Tinsel Trim around the card and adhered the layer to the card base.
To finish the card, I splattered some Silver Silk to the card and added a wooden snowflake to the bottom.  Enjoy!

Now, let's get to my projects. First the card.

I used our Be Amazing color, Outrageous Pink for the base of the card.  I then cut a layer of Be Amazing Pattern Paper for the top.  I then die cut a Star-dom star from Outrageous Pink cardstock.  Next, I stamped the sentiment, Be Awesome Today, from the So Pretty stamp set with Black Licorice ink on Whip Cream Cardstock.  I then splattered Turbo Teal silk over the tag, punched a star hole into the tag and tied the tag to the card with Black Licorice Twine.
To finish the card, I added some Tinsel Trim to the bow for the tag and added some Sparkle Dots to the stars on the card.

Next I die cut a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock with Journey Circles and stamped the sentiment from Annual Celebration and Cranberry Bliss ink.

Can You Case it is back!  We are now running bi-monthly challenges.  Our challenge this week is a color challenge.
 http://canyoucaseit.com/?p=3575
Here is the card I created.
I started the card with a layer of Oatmeal Cookie, Summer Days and Orange Creamcicle cardstock.  I then took a piece of Oatmeal Cookie and stamped the leaves from Autumn Days with Dark Roast ink.  I sliced the piece in half on a diagonal.  I attached this layer to the card.

I then splattered some Gold Silk over the card.
To finish the card, I wrapped Journey Natural Twine around the whole card, added a piece of Oatmeal Cookie Satin Ribbon and tied a bow.  Enjoy!

Journey Blog Hoppers- Faith Journey


Welcome to the Amazing Journey Blog Hoppers Hop!  This month's theme is Faith Journey.  I'm so happy you're hop pin' along!  If you arrived from Ruth Cooper's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok too!  Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

http://www.sassyangelsstudio.com/faith-journey-blog-hop/

Now, let's get to my projects.  First let me share the card I created.  I started with a Whip Cream Cardstock base.  I then cut a piece of Beach Ball, Beach Breeze and Catalina Splash Cardstock for the layers.  I then cut a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.  I stuck the Bible Print stickers to the piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.
I then took the Party Pop PanPastels in blues and created the background, right over the stickers.  I then took the white PanPastel from the same set and created the highlighted area over the fish.
Next, I stamped the sentiment from Trust the Lord stamp set with Catalina Splash ink on a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock that I matted with a piece of Catalina Splash Cardstock.
I then wrapped a piece of Catalina Splash Satin Ribbon around the one corner of the card and popped this layer up with foam squares.

I then wanted to use the same technique on my bible page.  Using the Bible Print sticker of the candle, I placed it on the bible page.  I then colored the candlestick with the Gold Pencil from the Color Burst pencils.  I used a Citrus Cooler, Lemon Drop and Pineapple Smoothie pencil to shade in the flame.
I then used the Mother Nature PanPastels green colors and the Rich SorbetsPanPastel brown color to create the path on the page.
To finish the page, I added some Gold Pan Pastels over the top of the candlestick to add some more sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you are inspired by my creations.  Please don't forget to click the Next button to continue on the hop with Becky Lemire's blog.

This month we are excited to have two Awesome Guest Hoppers that you should definitely check out.
So, I can't wait to share with you what I created.  First the card.
I started with a piece of Buttercream Cardtstock and a layer of Green Olive Cardstock.  I embossed the Green Olive with the Embossing Folder Say It!  I then distressed the edges and the top raised areas with Hazelnut Blend Ink.
Then, I stamped each of the leaves from the Autumn Days stamp set with Dark Roast ink on Cranberry Bliss, Summer Days and Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock.  I also stamped with Dark Roast ink, the sentiment from the Grateful Heart ATS on ButtercreamCardstock.  I then detail cut all these pieces out.
Using my Crease tool, I bent the leaves in the middle and curled the edges to bring them to life.  I then distressed them with Hazelnut Blend Ink.
To finish the card, I wrapped Natural Journey Twine around the card and tied a Wooden Accent button on.
Now on to the project. 
I first took a Styrofoam wreath and wrapped it with tan felt.  I then wrapped a piece of light brown burlap around the wreath.  I used the same materials that I used above to create this fall inspired wreath.  I then used some raffia to create the bow and the hanger.
Here is a little close up on the leaves.
And even closer look at the sentiment.   I used the Fun Stampers Journey Color Burst pencils to color in the "berries" on the sentiment.
