Encouragement Challenge

Welcome to the first Calling All Sistah's Encouragement Challenge. Learn more about this challenge and how you can participate on the Calling All Sistah's Blog.  
We can all use a bit of encouragement when things get rough, whether it be a major illness, or a difficult day/week/month we all need some encouragement to go on. 
Why not send them a piece of Happy Mail, a card of encouragement to let them know you are here for them.

This month we have our first inspiration photo.


I just love the colors in this photo!!  Here is my card for this challenge.


For this card I used the Floating stamp set. I created the sky with a piece of paper I cut a curve in and used the edge to sponge the sky with tumbled glass distress ink.

There will be a $25 gift certificate given to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store to one lucky challenge participant. If your card has CFS products used on it, Michele Saugstad Gross will double that prize!

Remember you can save 15% on stamps and dies when you used the code below



Thanks for coming by and please join us over on the Calling All Sistahs Blog and play along with us.

Great idea for creating your sky! I'll have to try it out next time I use the floating stamp set. :) Thank you, Susan, for being a part of the Calling All Sistahs Encouragement Squad!

CP Designs Inks

As may of you may already know I love Catherine Pooler's Inks!!  They ink up stamps do well with just a few light taps of the stamp to the ink, the colors all go together from each collection so no weird colors that don't go together. and the ink once wiped of does not transfer ink from one color to the next!! 
The first collection was named the Party Collection  and is composed of highly saturated bright and fun colors!!  I have used mine so much I just ordered the entire set of reinkers!!  I also can use these reinkers to watercolor with my water brush and for techniques that require more ink instead of using my ink pad!


The Party Collection
There is also two colors in the Neutrals Collection.

Now Catherine had begun releasing a new collection of colors called the Spa Collection!! These inks are a less saturated color which allows them to have more muted color.

Catherine has revealed the first 6 colors and they are Gorgeous!!



The next two colors will be revealed Monday on Facebook …

Michelle's 50th Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Welcome!! I am glad you were able to hop along with us today to celebrate Michelle's 50th Birthday!!  



You should have come here from Kelly's Blog. If you want to see the whole blog hop list or start from the beginning go to the  CAS-ual Fridays Blog
Here is my card to celebrate!!





I wanted to make a special card for Michelle, so I made my first trifold card.  The card is mostly just one layer with the Ballerinas glues to each panel. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks and with layering and masking created the floor.  For the stage lighting I used masking paper and sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress inks I them sprayed water on top and picked it up with a paper towel to get a distressed look. For the stamping I used Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, All the Jazz, Icing on the Cake and Sweet Sixteen inks from Catherine Pooler Designs . The stamps are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps…
