CAS-ual Fridays: Fall Fun (5th entry)

Her is my 5th and last entry for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge.



I brushed some watercolors on, let them dry, stamped the pumpkin and sentiment. 

Very clean and simple.

CAS-ual Fridays: Fall Fun (4th entry)

Hello...I'm back with a 4th entry for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge.





For this card....for which I used more candy-corn colors for the fall theme...I splattered watercolors on the circle, and some embossing powder, heat set it, and stamped the sentiment in solvent ink.

Asymmetry Challenge in the Moxie Fab World







I adhered the strips of cardstock and stamped the sentiment.
The Asymmetry is that all the lines are the same way....

Another Movement Challenge in the Moxie Fab World entry!

Here is another entry for the Movement Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.




More watercolors again!

I brushed on the watercolors, letting the color fade out at the bottom. ( I did this by not re-wetting my brush in the watercolor) 
I stamped the butterflies, and brushed on some more watercolor for the sentiment...and stamped it and the dots.

The movement on this card is the fading out effect of the butterflies.

Repetition Challenge in the Moxie Fab World (take 3!)

Here is my 3rd entry for the Repetition Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.




The repetition on this card is not exact repetition, but the strips of cardstock are repetition, even though they are different shades of pink,  and they help convey the "happy birthday" in a pretty, yet softly bold way. 

This card was not as easy as it looks to put together.

I had to cut the strips the exact same size, and then line them up just right when I adhered them, and then I had to make sure to stamp the sentiment straight. 



Jesus saves!

Repetition Challenge in the Moxie Fab World (take 2!

Here is my 2nd entry for the Repetition Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.





I stamped the pumpkins and sentiment, and added the strips of cardstock.

The repetition on this card helps pull you down to the sentiment, and helps convey the "thanks" really emphasizing it because the pumpkin is stamped 3 times. 


Jesus saves!

Bethany :) 


Repetition Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

Here is a card for another challenge: the Repetition Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.




I masked, and stamped the diamonds, and added the black strips of cardstock and then stamped a sentiment.

The repetition on this card helps emphasize the "happy birthday" sentiment. It also pulls the recipients eye down the corner of the card where they can open it.




Jesus saves!

Bethany :) 

Movement Challenge in the Moxie Fab World (take 4!)

Here is yet another entry for the Movement Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.








I punched lots of scallop circles for this card! 

I punched all those shapes, and adhered them after I stamped the sentiment. I wanted it too look like the shapes were flowing out of the sentiment. Did it work? 

The movement on this card is the circles, overlapping and seemingly "falling" down to the bottom of the card, and then, pulling you down to the corner of the card, where the recipient can open it, flowing right along with the movement of the card. 




Jesus saves!

Moxie Fab World Movement Challenge (take 3!)

I loved the movement challenge over at the Moxie Fab World soooo much! Here is another entry for Movement Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.



I splattered, glittered, stamped, tore cardstock, added gems and glued on this card!

The movement on this card is the "splash" of glitter coming from the flower as if it was a heavy object dropped in water with a resulting splash. At least, that is the idea I got! :)

Moxie Fab World Movement Challenge: take two!

Here is my 2nd entry for the Movement Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, and it is also going to be entered in this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge: 








I stamped the leaves (from Lawn Fawn) in various colors, and stamped the sentiment. 

The movement on this card is:

The leaves are "falling" over the one side of the card, and the curvy shaped of the group of leaves shows that they might be being "blown" by some wind :) 





Jesus saves!

Moxie Fab World Movement Challenge!

This time I have a card for the Movement Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
And I'm also going to enter this in this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge!









More watercolors!

I did the yellowish backround in watercolors. The leaves were made by stamped the leaves on white cardstock, then inking various dye inks over them, and dabbing a damp (not soaking) washcloth over them. It helps the colors blend. 

The movement in this card:

The leaves, starting at the top of this card, and "falling" down to the bottom. The watercolor backround serves as a "river" to kind of help the flow of the leaves.

Moxie Fab World Focal Point Challenge (take 2!)

Here I am with another card for the Focal Point Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.




I stamped the sentiment, and then the dots....

The focal point on this card is the sentiment. Your eye starts at the top right hand corner of the card, and follow the dots to the sentiment, where your eye can rest. 




Jesus saves!

Moxie Fab World Focal Point Challenge

Hello! I'm here with my first card for the Focal Point Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.




I've been using watercolors on my cards quite a bit lately (you'll see that in coming blog posts/cards!)
So, I painted the card in 3 different watercolor colors, and stamped the flower, bird and "bloom" 

The focal point is the sentiment...your eye moves down the flower, humming bird and finally lands and is able to rest on the sentiment. 



Jesus saves!

Bethany :) 














Warning: There is going to be a lot of blog posts today :)

Just a little warning that there will be alot  (most likely 10+) blog posts around here today :) Hope you don't mind! Oh, and Happy Autumn! (what do you think about my new blog backround? I made it myself)




                                                           Jesus saves!

CAS-ual Fridays: Black and White Plus One (take 9)

Here is my 9th card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge.





This is also my last entry this week. I don't think I've ever entered this many cards in a CAS-ual Fridays challenge :)

I masked a space on my card, stamped it and the sentiment and added the gems, and a piece of black cardstock. This card was made while I was sitting on our living room couch. 
Warning: crafting on your couch is an easy way to lose stamps! 


Jesus saves!
