Birthdays and Babies



I am sneaking away from Superbowl commercials to post three cards I made this weekend.  I'll be brief...


First up is a card that combines a brand new stamp and die (Celebrate) with one of my oldest favorite (Dot Spot).  I am playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch #207,  Inkspirational #127: Polka Dots, and Happy Little Stampers February CAS Challenge:  Blue.








With this next card, I am playing along, for the first time (I think) with MFT Color Challenge #62Simon Says Monday Pet's Corner and Addicted to CAS #104: Pets.  Now, I realize that elephants are a very non traditional pet, but these were the dies I really wanted to use, and I am sure that there is someone somewhere with a couple of pet elephants.





Last up is a card inspired by the sketch at Just Add Ink #345 and the colors at Color Throwdown #428.





That's it for me this week.

Thanks for Visiting

  8. Joyce, I LOVE that first card! It has so much awesome texture with the dotty patterns against that embossing and, of course, that sentiment is so cool. I wish I had a pet elephant although you'd need a heck of a big pooper scooper! Is that last flower from Altenew? Its really pretty and I love how subtly you coloured it.

  9. You've been a busy girl, Joyce! I hope your team won yesterday :)
    Three really fabulous cards! I love how you paired the Celebrate die cut with the Dots, and your embossed background is perfect! I also think your ellies are really fun, and I agree...someone surely has one for a pet :) Your flower on the last card is stunning! A beautiful take on the sketch, and your details are fabulous...especially your embossed card base!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Addicted to CAS!

  12. Oh, those stamps are soooooo perfect for Michele's sketch, Joyce ...and the celebrate stamp and die - simply wow, wow, WOW - LOVE it!!!! Such a great card!!!! I couldn't help but smile at pet elephants - if we could have them in the sizes and colours they are on your cute card, I think they would have been very popular as pets ...just imagine a little cage with a few of them!!! Love the dry embossing of the ears - a very sweet card!!!! The third card is very stylish and elegant!!!! Beautiful!!!!
    Have a great day!!!!

  20. That dotted background is fabulous, Joyce, and goes well with the new "celebrate" die. Love the elephants and I too thought about wild animals as pets and decided to buy new stamps instead. The Altenew flower is exquisite, especially on that embossed background.

    1. Yes, the Celebrate stamp and die are from PTI, but they were a freebie last December with purchase. Best way to try to find one would be to see if someone is selling theirs, as they were not made available for sale. So sorry. It is a fun little mini set.

  29. Joyce, such a bunch of wonderful cards as always. Congrats on your CTS Win!! Fantastic card. I love the blues you used, and that sentiment is so wonderful! I LOVE the baby card - a CAS delight, and those were wonderful colors to work with! Gorgeous birthday card. Love that embossed panel, and that floral image in colored so beautifully.

  30. Beautiful cards! The first one is a knock-out. I have searched for the Celebrate stamp and die from PTI and cannot find it although Dot Spot and the embossing folder are available. Help!
