Another couple of cards!

I saw this sketch at CAS(E) this sketch and loved it immediately. I love how the sentiment encroaches on the main focal image.
This is my version using Stampin' UP stamps.The background is Off the Grid, the butterflies are Papillon Potpourri and the sentiment is Curly Cute... all stamped with Pool Party ink. I stamped the butterflies and clear embossed them before masking them and then stamping the background.
The sentiment was cut using an SU Framelit die.
This one was made on a whim. I thought this little smiley face was so cute so I cut out the pieces on my Silhouette and coloured them in yellow and black with Copics before adding Anita's 3D Gloss.
The sentiment is from SU's Geometrical set on a little tag using eyelets and a length of ribbon which was cut from a sweater. I can't stand it when those darn things show, popping out of the neck of jumpers etc.
It's for a couple of challenges

This evening we are dining with friends and today hopefully we'll be able to meet up with our son and his wife in Worthing where they are once more house hunting. There have been complications with the house they had intended buying and he starts in his new practice in 2 weeks time... as yet they don't have a house to go to... I think his mother-in-law may well have some lodgers for a spell!


  1. I LOVE that stamp!!!! wish it was available in Italy! sigh!

    Really nice card!

  2. The bling on the glasses is the "pièce de résistance, Chrissie! What a cute and cheerful card, and kudos for "up-cycling" the annoying ribbon... Thanks for sharing with us at the Dynamic Duos this week!

  3. So this is what true Sun glasses look like! lol! Love the warm bold pop of yellow (we're freezing here in Toronto, but at least we're not flooding, and I hope you're not either!) Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

  4. Gorgeous cards Chrissie, the first one is so beautiful and the second brings a big smile.

    Warm hugs

  5. Such fab cards as always Chrissie, I love those sunglasses on the smiley sun. Thank you so much for joining us this week at CASology

  6. I love that grid stamp on the first card and the glasses on the sunshine are adorable! Thanks for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  7. I adore that grid and it's beautiful with the butterflies Chrissie. What an excellent and thrifty use of the ribbon on your second card! I'm like you and snip them out before they get into my wardrobe. Best wishes for your son and his wife - hope they find somewhere soon. Vicky x

  8. Oh, these are both wonderful! I especially love your pretty take on the sketch!
