Tuesday's Cards

I've been in awe of the talent over at CASE study for awhile and I have been waiting for inspiration to hit me in a way that I felt like I was able to play along.  This week's card by Julee has some fabulous green polka dots.  I went a little green happy (funny how I didn't do a green St. Patrick's day card).  This week's Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger also has green polka dots, I've just opted to ignore the other colors (be proud, I've a very literal girl, that's not easy for me to do).

My next card uses the double Lawnscaping and Wee Memories challenge of "cute and cuddly" and Jay Gee's Nook colors.  I decided that my card stash need a pet sympathy card and the Lawn Fawn Critters in the 'burbs kitty cat seemed like a good option. 

And I've saved the best for last.  Ben, my 5 year old, wanted to enter his own challenge, so he's made a food card for the current Children's Challenge Corner.  (He LOVES comments, funny, he must be related to me, so if you've made it down this far in the post, please leave him some love.).

Materials: First Card, Studio G pear stamp, Hero Arts Designer Hello flower, Hero Arts dot stamp, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 8, vellum, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 1, white gel pen, Versacolor Cactus green ink, green ribbon from my stash

Second Card: PTI kraft card stock, Mint Motif dot stamp, PTI Mat Stack 2 sentiment, Lawn Fawn Critters in the 'burbs cat, yellow marker, yellow string, teal ink, Versafine black ink

Third Card: Stampin Up fruit stamps, Versafine orange ink, Versafine Cactus Green ink, Brillance Rocket Red ink

Emily Leiphart said...

Ben, your fruit look good enough to eat! Your penmanship is fantastic. You are so creative to make your own sentiment!

Ok, now you, Erin. ;) Wow, two fantastic cards! The green pear card makes me happy. I love green! And your Lawn Fawn cards makes me smile, even though it's obviously for a sad occasion.

Oh gosh these are so cute!!! Thanks for playing with us at CASE Study Challenge! :)

Emily Keaton said...

Ben, your fruit card looks so yummy!! You've used all of my favorite fruits. I'm so glad that you like to stamp with your mom. My kids (12 and 8) like to stamp with me, too. Isn't it fun to make something that you can give to someone--and then it makes *their* day?? Keep up the good work!

Erin, I'm totally literal, too, so I can appreciate the big step it was for you to ignore the other colors in the Tuesday Trigger photo lol!!!! Both of your cards are great. Have fun with Ben!
