Cas(e) this Sketch 196

Hello and welcome!! Today I am participating in the Cas(e) this Sketch challenge #196.
 I used a set from My Favorite Things. One of MY favorite sets, Lucky Dog!

I stamped the poodle onto patterned paper and cut her out using the matching die cut. I added a bit of colored pencil to enhance the image a bit. In the close up photo you can see I used some dimensional pearls to make her pearl necklace.

Who doesn't love a pink gingham poodle?? lol
I chose a rescue theme for my card - they are collecting cards for an animal shelter not too far from where I live! Cas(e) for a cause - I love this idea! What a nice gesture!

Here is the sketch I followed:

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you will leave a comment so I will know you were here! 
See you next time!

Casology 219

Hello I am back agin - this time with a card for the Casology challenge. Cue card : SPOOKY. Perfect for fall!

I love Halloween cards!

My card uses a very vintage Penny Black stamp. The stamp is dated 1998! 
Guess I have been stamping for a while! lol

Here is my card:

Spooky ghosts! I created the background by using distress inks on watercolor paper using the direct to paper technique. When I got the color intensity I wanted, I spritzed a bit of water, heat set it and then spritzed a bit of gold shimmer. I painted the moon with Distress inks, and added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the ghosts.

Thanks for visiting today!
Hope to see you again!

Tag You're It Challenge 58

Hello! Welcome - today I am entering the Tag You're It Challenge #58. Here is the inspiration tag:

My inspiration from this tag was to make a fall themed tag with a word on it.

I used my Lawn Fawn stitched leaves and Hello Dies on my tag.

For the tag itself, I used my banner dies from Sizzix. 
Plaid paper is from Lawn Fawn as well.

I brushed on some clear Wink of Stella on the hello to give some sparkle.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
See you soon!
