CAS(E) This Sketch #134 -- Take Two

Today, I have another card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #134 designed by Chrissy Larson:


I love these fun concentric circles in the bottom corner of the card!
They made me think of the large Crate Paper flower die that I have.
It's from Maggie Holmes and allows for several layers.

Here's my card:

CAS(E) This Sketch 134 -- Take Two Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I used Mama Elephant's Femme Frames to created the border
and diecut the flower pieces from Crate Paper Poolside 6x6 paper pad.
The flower only goes up to the solid pink circle, so I cut the two largest rings by hand.
I love how it's extra large this way!

I diecut my Wet Paint Cut from true black cardstock and stamped
the coordinating sentiment in onyx black ink.

I'm also linking this up to this week's

A colour challenge & a card from Sage

Recently, on the PTI forum, Melissa Phillips shared this colour combo:


I decided to use it to make a card with my new Vintages Linens stamp set & dies.


I stamped the flowers in melon berry & sweet blush and added some simply chartreuse
details to the limeade ice leaves.
The jar is from Lawn Fawn's Summertime Charm and the 
sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Sentiments.

And, Sage also has a card to share today.
She made it for her dad for his birthday.


She used some PTI On the Farm stamps and dies.
The little cat is from Mama Elephant's Three Amigos.
She had fun colouring it in using my new Zig markers
(she's used them more than I have so far!)

She's linking her card up to Simon Says Stamp's

Throwback Thursday #6

Today I have a card to share for Wplus9's Throwback Thursday #6,
where I was inspired by this card of Maureen's:


Now, I'm not sure if we had to create a masculine card, 
but Maureen had asked what was the first Wplus9 stamp set that we bought
and for me, that was Fresh Cut Florals.
So I made my card using it.

Throwback Thursday 6 Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I love how Maureen split the panel on the diagonal like that, so I did the same!
I stamped everything (flowers, sentiments, leaves) using Fresh Cut Florals
and finished it off with a few PTI rainstones.

Muse Challenge #126

Today I have a card to share for Muse Challenge #126:


Isn't Tracey's card adorable?
The patterned in the background made me think of 
So, I diecut them from a piece of cardstock to make a mask.

Here's my card:


I added the sentiment and flamingo from Fabulous Flamingo
and the coordinating Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts.


I love how fun & summery this feels!

Five for Friday

I cannot believe it is the end of July already!
This month has totally flown by...

1. Last Friday night, I took the kids to our local drive-in, where
we watched Avengers Age of Ultron.



2. It was a bit of a "Marvel weekend", because on Saturday, we drove to Winnipeg
to see Marvel Universe Live!, which was very entertaining,


We also did a little shopping and went to a Lego Builder event at one of the malls.


3. Last night, our church rented the pool in Manitou.
It was a little cool and quite windy, so only Jonah was brave enough to go in the pool.



4. Tonight, we get to go and pick up Sage from camp!
I can't wait to see my best girl and to hear all about her week!


5. I have a card to share for this week's 

Five for Friday Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I had so much fun making my cow card yesterday, that I decided to add some texture
to a stamped cow from Papertrey Ink's On the Farm.

I diecut some white cardstock using the Tag Sale 7 dies and stamped the background
from on the farm.
I used the dots stamp from Simon Says Stamp's Congratulations stamp set
 to add some kissed texture to my cow.

Five for Friday Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I layered it all on some American Crafts patterned paper 
& stamped the sentiment from On The Farm.

CAS(E) This Sketch #134

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #134 designed by Chrissy Larson:


Since it's my husband's birthday today, I decided to use the sketch
to make his birthday card.
I also used PTI's On The Farm stamp set & dies,
since I vowed when I bought the set when it was released several years ago
that I would use it every year for his birthday card. ;)

CAS(E) This Sketch 134 Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I diecut the clouds and hills using some Pretty Pink Posh border dies.
I smoothed some dark chocolate ink onto some white cardstock
and then diecut the cows from it, so I got some cool markings on them.

I'm also linking this up to this week's

Wplus9 Get Sketchy with Joni #2

Today, I have a card to share that I made for


Isn't this a fun sketch?
I decided to use my new Watercolored Anemones stamp set to create my card.

Wplus9 Get Sketchy with Joni #2 Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I stamped the anemones on a piece of white linen cardstock and cut it out by hand.
I also stamped some of the flowers on the panel background,
as well as on the corners of the raised panels on the front of the card.
The sentiment is from Wplus9's Fresh Cut Florals.

A few PTI rainstones finish it off.
