CSI 171 and Creative Embellishments

Hi all! Can you believe that July is done and gone?! Where the heck is time going? I have a LO to share with you today. I used the CSI case file 171. CE is guest there for the month of July! It is always a pleasure to play along with Debbie and the Team at CSI. This one was a YUMMY Treat too!! Here is My LO using this case file.

I used the Flying Unicorn July KOM, because it was PERFECT for the color combo for the CSI case file 171. The paper already had the dots and I added in a little texture paste to dress up the background! 2 Pieces of evidence done and dusted! My cousin is expecting her 2nd child and announced the baby would be a girl! Much cause for celebrating!! I used a CE Mini Frame to highlight the sign that she would be having a girl. Dressed the chippie up using some gesso and a little inker. The main picture I used a CE Leafy Vine Frame. I cut one of the sides off. Added a bit of gesso and some more inking. Whala perfect frames to highlight my photos! I got one of my fave stamps dancing around in the BG too. The Distress Script stamp! Love this stamp!! How about a couple of close ups?

 Hope to see you joining us with this case file!!

CE Products Used:
Mini Frames
Leafy Vine Frame
Distressed Script Stamp

Little Romance with Creative Embellishments

Hello all!! Tammy here today to share a card and tag combo. I used my most fave CE chippies too! Teaming up with Flying Unicorn's gorgeous July KOM. Beautiful romantic combo!

Here are them both together..

I love vines, flourishes and those yummy windows from CE!!! Lets get a closer look at the card..

I turned the Berry Wreath Frame from winter to spring just by changing the color of the berries to green! Colored them with a little inker (branch bark) first then added in some silks (Olive Vine). For my Arched Window I colored it with some Decoart crackle paint in white. Then I edged it lightly here and there with the same little inker from the frame. Layered some coordinating paper behind and built my cluster on top! Easy to make a sweet little card for a friend!! Now lets take a look at the tag!

 Oh now this is some of my fave things for sure! Flowers, lace, butterflies and of course a CE Flourish 15!!! Easy to color this one too! Just lay down a color of little inker I used Olive Vine. Then I used a Faber Castell color pencil from the Flying Unicorn Mixed Art July KOM. Grabbed my Green and added in some highlights! Perfect control on getting color in all the right spots!
