Fusion Card Challenge - 'Gray White Christmas'

Welcome to the latest Fusion Card Challenge'Gray White Christmas', our very last of 2021 (so LOTS of time to play along!!). The fabulous photo and sketch are both pretty lovely...... evoking a soft, natural holiday mood! Which will you choose - the sketch, the photo or both as your inspiration?

My project, taking cues from both the photo and the sketch, focuses on the lovely gray/green color combo, the patterning of the rug and the petite wreaths. The white frame sets off the 'Joy' die cut/crisp sentiment and the tiny pearls are the finishing touch to this CAS creation.

The DT has created LOTS of lovelies, so be sure to hop on over and join the party! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as you jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together. 

P.S.- Happy Thanksgiving wishes to all of those celebrating today!

My project, taking cues from both the photo and the sketch, focuses on the aforementioned typewriter AND the a-mazing details of the Sugar Pea Designs 'You're My Type' stamp/die.

Fusion Card Challenge - 'Peach Birthday'

It's time for another Fusion Card Challenge - 'Peach Birthday'!! This beautifully hued photo and fabulous sketch are both pretty lovely. SO.... which will you choose,  the sketch, the photo or both as your inspiration?

My project, taking cues from both the photo and the sketch, focuses on the lovely ombre rainbow. I poked through my scrap bin for little bits of pinky/peachy color and created my framed rainbow..... adding sprinkles of sparkle (to imitate the balloons), a simple (non-birthday) sentiment, a bit of texture on the mini slimline card base and a pretty paper strip to mimic the box pattern wallpaper behind the balloons. I fashioned a matching slimline envelope to complete the petite ensemble!

The DT has created LOTS of lovelies, so be sure to hop on over and join the party! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as you jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together.

Fusion Card Challenge - 'Nautical Bear'


It's waaaay past time for the 'Nautical Bear" Fusion Card Challenge (since it's time for a new one, starting tomorrow)!! However, I'm posting a few cards, which were finally photographed. I'm so very sorry for the delay!

My projects, taking inspiration from both the photo and the sketch, focus on the red/white/blue color combo and the nautical theme (oops... no little bear here!). I've mimicked the ombre frosting, using an array of blues, added lots of pops of red, a crisp sentiment and a bit of texture (swirly clouds peeking out) and dimension. And, YAY, a few little boy birthday cards to add to the stash!!

The DT has created LOTS of lovelies, so be sure to hop on over and join the party! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as you jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together.

Fusion Card Challenge - 'Crayons'

It's time for another Fusion Card Challenge - 'Crayons'!! This beautiful, happy rainbow and fabulous sketch couldn't have come at a better time as it has been raining cats and dogs for three days (which is why only ONE photo..... thus far!). Will you choose the sketch, the photo or both as your inspiration?

My project, taking inspiration from both the photo and the sketch, focuses on the lovely hues and the stipe element. A bit of texture on the stitched tag and card background, a plethora of color, crisp sentiment and a snippet of black twine finish off this CAS thank you! (gah....looking at this photo, I wish that I'd lined up all of my colorful pencils. Perhaps I'll redo and post V2!).

The DT has created LOTS of lovelies, so be sure to hop on over and join the party! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as you jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together.

The Fusion Card Challenge - 'Kitty Butterfly'


Happy Thursday..... and welcome to the newest Fusion Card Challenge, 'Kitty Butterfly'The inspiration photo is quite wonderful (and LOVE our two kitties!!) - but that sketch is pretty great too. So, which will you choose as your inspiration?

My project, taking inspiration from both the photo and the sketch, focuses on the adorable feline and petite butterfly. For some reason or another, I was seeing a Canyon Clay/Cobalt color combo.....something I wouldn't normally put together. But, it's good to stretch a bit and try new things. Not quite sure how well this 'stretch' works though!! Anyway.... a smattering of patterned papers, some texture from my favorite polka dots, a trio of little butterflies finish and a coordinating lined envelope finish off this clean and simple 'thank you'. 

The DT has created lots of lovelies, so be sure to hop on over and join the party! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as you jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together.
