CAS-ual Fridays CFC94 and Less is More 111







I used the fun sketch that the amazingly talented, kind, generous and lover of Bingo, Karolyn Loncon cooked up for this week's CAS(E) ,,, however I missed the deadline!

Kelly Griglione was kind enough to direct me to the Frame It! challenge at Less is More which also coordinates with this weeks fun challenge at CAS-ual Fridays as well.

The 'chipboard' stars were created from  two layers of craft-a-board and one layer of a recycled hot coffee cup holder that was run through my crimper.  I love the rich chestnut brown color and fabulous texture. Added some SU linen thread and popped the stars up with dimensionals.  I used some glorious water color paper for the card fronts (more sweet texture!)

Excitement galore at our house as the nice mailman delivered my very first Paper Smooches stamps and dies (thanks Kim and Karolyn). Of course I had to get at least one image inked up (the above sentiment)! I am so impressed with the quality of the photo polymer.stamps and how well they stamp! And, the customer service is second to none! I just might have to call in sick tomorrow from work so that I can test drive the remainder of my order!

Happy crafting!

  4. You wrapped the stars! LOVE!! What a great design element. Too bad you missed the CASE this Sketch deadline, but why don't you hop over to Less Is More? Your CAS card would be perfect for the frame challenge they have. So glad you joined the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge this week, Geri!

  19. Never fret about missing a deadline, sistah. Life is just to freakin' short for that! This turned out beautifully and I'm so glad you found a couple of challenges to link it up to because it's GOR-JUS!! Love those chipboard stars and the twine wrapped around them. There's a clean yet rustic look about this that just makes me swoon! So glad you got your goodies - am loving what you're doing with them!! But I'm not surprised . . . I knew you'd rock them OUT! Love, your BINGO lovin' friend! XOXO P.S. I won another $800 Wednesday night - I'm on a ROLL!! LOL
