Tuesday Throwdown #246: Anything Goes

It's Tuesday again, friends! And that means another week of crafting fun with the Tuesday Throwdown gang. The theme of our challenge this week is "Anything Goes". Yep! It's a tough one. :)  Our sponsor is Craft Classes Online and you can use any stamps or products from your stash as long as you follow this week's difficult theme.

I made these thank you cards to give a couple who hosted a fabulous barbecue over at their home last week. We had a lovely day out - good food, great company and amazing weather! I'm using stamps by Clearly Besotted and the patterned papers are by First Edition Love Leters. The image panel is raised with a piece of fun foam. I'm persevering with CAS. It's still hit and miss.... more misses for now! :) With the aid of the fab MISTI, I made a few of these thank you cards. They are what I reach for the most.

 The vase is stamped with VersaFine Blue Lagoon, die cut and are inlaid. I added a little colour on it with a light blue Polychromo pencil. The flowers are stamped first with Memento Rose Bud and the solid stamp from Clearly Besotted's A Little Something set. And over that I stamped the dotty image with VersaFine Imperial Purple and adhered blue bling in the middle. For the stalks I used VersaFine Spanish Moss and VersaFine Imperial Purple for the bow. These are overlaid dies cuts. Inked the butterfly stamp with VersaMagic Sea Breeze in the middle and rolled the VersaMagic Perfect Plumeria around before stamping and cutting. Then I adhered it on the card with Scotch Foam Tape and finished it with a light blue bling in the middle. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's Time To Celebrate Additions, stamped with VersaFine Majestic Blue.

  10. These cards are so sweet. I love the colours and the backing around-perfect for a bar-b-q or picnic. I have been thinking about you and that it is Mr. Richard Parker's birthday month so I visited another blog about pussy cats and thought you might like to smile. here it is http://thatspurrfect.blogspot.ca/2015/05/little-cats-being-little-monkeys.html?showComment=1432694142163#c8009584431715513304
