CAS(E) This Sketch 268

Time for CAS(E) This Sketch 268! What a cool sketch, hey!? This is what I did with it: I had been eying the Lawn Fawn Year Seven stamps and die for a little bit now and decided to pick them up. Who’s day would not be brightened by a card made with them!? That pinata…

CAS(E) This Sketch #218

There is so much potential for CAS(E) This Sketch #218: Here is what I came up with: I stamped a Jillibean Soup sentiment on some ribbon with StazOn and it worked like a charm. I love that ink! I felt like making that middle bar with something other than some paper and thought that the…

CAS(E) This Sketch #217

It’s a springy sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch #217: Here is my card: I liked the idea of grass, but had to improvise. I flipped a bunting stencil upside down and used green inks in increasingly dark shades to kind of imitate small hills in a field. Then I stamped, cut out and coloured the…

CAS(E) This Sketch #216

Gotta love the stripes for the CAS(E) This Sketch #216 sketch: I needed another birthday card for a no-frills kinda guy and I thought this sketch worked really well for that. I stenciled the stripes on some green paper with MementoLuxe Nautical Blue ink. I built up the sentiment with a couple of die cuts,…

CAS(E) This Sketch #215

Here is the super cute sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch #215: Here is what I came up with: I flipped the main image upside down because I was inspired by the idea of falling leaves. I had some fabric leaves and the natural colour plays off the kraft card stock. The stamp is from a…

CAS(E) This Sketch #212

Here is the current sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch: Here is what I came up with: Though this card is embellished more than I usually embellish, I don’t think it’s too much. The colour of the pearls play off both the grey of the background panel and the ivory of the patterned paper and…

CAS(E) This Sketch #211

Here is this week’s sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch: I am not a floral person, but I still loved the look of the reaching stems topped with flowers. So… Balloons! I used complimentary orange and blue, and kept the ink simple with just black. The die cut frame is inlaid back in the paper around…

CAS(E) This Sketch #210

Hi there! Here’s this week’s fun sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch: Here is what I did with the sketch: I really liked the idea of the background images coming through the main one somehow.The chalky ink I used for the four leaf clovers not only made the “quiet” layer I was looking for, but it…

CAS(E) This Sketch #209

Hi there! It’s a sketch with tons of options for CAS(E) This Sketch #209. It is almost abstract in its simplicity. But one should never let simplicity deceive them… Here is my card: It’s another masculine card with some bright highlights brought in by the die cut pennant the sentiment is stamped on. I used…

C.T.S. #208

Hey there! I finally had some time to make a card. This one is for CAS(E) This Sketch #208: I had a lot of fun thinking about this one, and here is the card I came up with: I used Art-C stamps for the Happy Birthday sentiment (24667 R6). I used Hero Arts Origami Animals…

C.T.S. 207

I am trying out a couple new card challenge sites, and first up is CAS(E) This Sketch: I am getting my card in just under the wire: I spray painted some plastic stars, and because it is so cold and wet here they didn’t set 100%. This didn’t ruin them though, instead it gave them…
