Greetings! It is time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, the challenge is to create a CAS (Clean and Simple Design) with a touch of sparkle.

I love to see CAS cards, but find them difficult to make. So, this was indeed a challenge for me.  I remembered this dear little boy from Oxford Impressions, the sentiment is from OI, too.  After Stamping the focal image and sentiment, I added some snow with a Tim Holtz Stencil and Distress Ink. For sparkle, I added a bit of Ranger Stickles.

For true CAS card beauty, please stop over to see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with. We hope that you will consider making a sample of your own to share with us. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I truly appreciate your visits and your comments. Best, Yvonne

Greetings! So lovely of you to drop by my blog today! We have a new challenge at Inkspirational!

This time, it's a "word prompt." Lots of different ways to go with the word, "Chill." I immediately thought of being outside, as the weather turns cooler. You will want to stop over, though, at Inkspirational, to see how the rest of the Design Team interpreted the challenge.  We hope you will consider creating a piece of your own to share with us.

For my piece, I worked with an image by Gecko Galz. The snowflakes, sentiment and branches on the front of the card are all by Oxford Impressions. Had fun with my Ranger Enamels and Stickles in completeting my card. Thanks for visiting. Best, Yvonne

'Tis the Season

Greetings! It is time, once again, for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge! The theme this month is entitled 'Tis the Season. Its up to you to choose, autumn or winter for your creation! I hope you will stop over to see the absolutely gorgeous creations by the rest of the Design Team and then be inspired to create a project of your own to share with us.  Remember, we are a stamping challenge, so stamping most be the focal point of your creation.  One lucky participant will earn a gift voucher for $20 from our gracious sponsor, Flonzcraft

For my own creation, I worked with a new to me set of images from De Stempelwinkel, plate 178.  I decided to keep the panel pristine and stamp directly onto it with StazOn Ink in Midnight Blue. I added a piece of torn paper to the bottom of the panel for dimension and texture and added some stars in varying sizes to give the illusion of the skaters dancing under the stars.  Fond memories, as a child of skating at nightime! Thanks for stopping by. We hope you join in at FSC.

Best, Yvonne

Everything begins and ends with you!

Greetings! Back again with another project for the newest Photo Inkspiration Challenge over at Inkspirational Challenge.  

Isn't it a cool photo? Wait until you see the projects that the rest of the Design Team dreamed up to inspire you.  We hope you will consider submitting a creation of your own!

Mine was quite simple.  I do not often create a card without stamping on it. I made an exception for this one.  I enjoyed adding all the Ranger Stickles to it, too.  Thanks for stopping by. Best, Yvonne

I wish you a Merry Christmas!

Greetings! It's time, once again, for another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu! For the month of November, the Pink Team Challenge is to create any project with a "bow" on it.  I decided to create a Christmas card with some images from Oxford Impressions that have never been inked before.  The background was done with Brushos. I hope you will stop over to check out the wide variety of projects at Eclectic Ellapu, and then consider sharing a project of your own with us.  Thanks for stopping by!

In the Depth of Winter

Greetings! It's time again for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time, the theme is "Trees."  You will be absolutely astonished at the gorgeous design team makes.  I hope you will check them out.  For my own card, I used a stamp set by Artistic Output.  I decided to keep it very neutral and mostly black and white.  I tinted the cabin with a little red ink and added some Ranger Stickles for a snowy effect.
We hope you are inspired to create a stamped project of your very own to share with us.  One lucky participant will earn a Gift Voucher from our sponsor FlonzCraft.  Best wishes! Yvonne
