Who's ready...

...for a bunch of cards from Mynnette?!  That's right, kids!  I've been making cards but haven't had time to show them to you, so now you have to endure tons of pictures in posts and multiple posts from me tonight!!! ;)  Let's get right to it--this post will feature my CAS cards and then we'll do another post for non-CAS cards! :)  Let's start with some faux stitching, shall we?

Here's my first "stitched" card & details~



My second "stitched" card & details~



For these fabulous challenges~




These cards were SO MUCH FUN to create!!!  I have a PTI set called "Faux Ribbon" that I usually just use the sentiments out of, but I knew immediately when I saw the stitching challenges that I'd have to use the stitched faux ribbon image in this set!  I had lots of fun randomly stamping my lines and then finding the perfect place for my sentiments and rhinestones.  I will definitely have to use this idea next time I need a super quick card!

Here's another CAS card~

(I made my own designer paper...)


When I saw that the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays, I immediately thought sympathy card.  But I didn't want it to be completely black, so to make my own designer paper, I started by dry embossing a piece of black cardstock with my Sizzix purse.  After it had gone through the machine, I sponged on  some silver ink and added some rhinestones.  Then I stamped a sentiment in the silver onto another small piece of black cardstock and punched it out, cut it down, and added it to my card.  Easy peasy, and I LOVE the way it turned out!

Thanks for taking a peek at my CAS cards--come back in a bit to see some non-CAS cards!  Happy stamping, friends! ;)

Nice cards, I really like the ones with the faux stitched ribbon, the effect is just amazing !

Victoria said...

Those stitches are fun! For a moment when I saw the second card, the bling arranged around the sentiment looked like paw prints! The third card is ultra classy. The silver works really well with the black.

You do this CAS style so well! I really like the design of the ones you've entered in the LIM challenge - the strict, but colorful design is so appealing to me. The black based card for Casual Fridays is such an elegant one. Love your work!
