CTS #297

Good morning, you guys!  I hope you are enjoying your week and are ready to play along with another awesome CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  We have an awesome guest designer this week and the design team really made some awesome cards.  I just know you'll love the sketch and have a blast creating.  Here's what I came up with:


Another super simple Christmas card for you this week.  I didn't have to stamp or die cut!  I just started with a black card base and added this fun and simple paper from the Kaisercraft First Noel paper pack.  Then I added some of the fun trees from the coordinating die cut pack.  Finally, I added this fun shiny sentiment also from the die cut pack popped with a little foam.  Can you tell I am totally getting my money's worth out of these Kaisercraft products.  So much fun!  Here's a closer look:  


I hope your November is going well and that you will make some time to join us over at CAS(E) this Sketch!!

A Little More Christmas

Happy Monday!  I decided it was time to share a little more of my Christmas creations with you guys.  I've been working hard on building my Christmas card stash and if you are anything like me, you could always use a little extra inspiration.  Hopefully, I can give you a little this morning.  ;)

I apologize in advance for any typos.  I have a super helpful assistant on my keyboard this morning.


Lucky for him, I can't resist that whiskery face.  Loki decided that I should share this card with you today and who am I to argue?


I started this card by grabbing a fun paper pack from Pebbles called Merry Merry and started diecutting the Frantic Stamper Bitty Winter Postage die set from various patterned papers.  I backed them with some white glitter tape pieces before arranging them on my card base make with kraft paper and a piece of patterned paper from the Merry Merry pack.  I added a strip of glitter tape and a strip of kraft paper stamped with a sentiment I created with the Frantic Stamper Retro Label Maker Christmas Sentiments stamp set.  I finished it off with a wooden snowflake.  Super fun!  Here's a closer look: 


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Have a great day.

CTS #296

Good morning and happy November!  I hope you all had a spooktacular October and Halloween.  We had a wonderful time out collecting candy last night.  Now I have to start the attempts to resist snagging a piece whenever I see it laying around.  What a fun time of year!  Ha ha!  Something I don't have to resist is playing along with this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  It's an awesome sketch with awesome inspiration from the team and an amazing guest designer.  You won't want to miss out.  Here's my take:


Another super easy card for you this week but I love the simplicity of it, especially when you are trying to crank out all your Christmas cards and can't handle mass production.  ;)  I used my favorite paper pack the KaiserKraft First Noel paper pack, some awesome black cardstock for my base, and the awesome cardstock images from the First Noel Set.  All I had to do was arrange and pop up with foam squares.  Talk about easy.  Here's a closer look:


Thanks so much for joining us today and I hope you'll play along with us at CAS(E) this Sketch.  Here's what I used for today's card:

Lil' Inker Designs October Release Day #3


Well, it's the last day of our new release hop at Lil' Inker Designs and I'm super excited to show off these last couple products.  Hopefully, you started out at the the Lil' Inker Blog so you don't miss a stop on the hop and have come here from the amazing Caly's blog.  If you are feeling a little lost, make sure you hop back to the Lil' Inker Blog to get back on the trail of fun.  You can also check out the Lil' Inker Store where all of the new release goodies, and a whole lot more, are ready and waiting for you to put in your cart!

My first card on this final day uses Blossoms & Banners Autumn Stamps, Blossoms & Banners Autumn Dies, and Cover Up Die: Diagonal Plaid.


I started this card by embossing an image from Blossoms & Banners Autumn Stamps in gold on some kraft cardstock.  I liked how it looked, especially after I colored it lightly with some copics.  So, I cut it out using the Blossoms & Banners Autumn Dies but I wanted a little more with a twist so I stamped the image again with black and colored it in before flipping it and tucking it behind the gold embossed image.  A little foam tape gave it some extra dimension.  Next, I went about building the background.  I started with one of my favorite ways to add texture, the Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain.  I decided that the Cover Up Die: Diagonal Plaid should be set on the diagonal and cover just a portion of the card.  It added such a fun look!  then to bring in the black, I added a strip of black with a touch of rose gold.  Some sequins finished it off just like the fun fall leaves!  Here's a closer look:


My final card uses the new Peace On Earth Word Die, a touch of the Classic Christmas Stamps, and has a little plaid thing going on too!


When I was coloring the images from Classic Christmas Stamps, I just couldn't help cut color all of them.  Well, then I just had to use them!  So, I made another card with a little more modern twist.  I started with some plaid and layered two cuts of the Dual Dotted Circles Dies in different colors.  Then I added the gorgeous Peace On Earth Word Die in bright white which I coated in glossy accents.  A simple bit of Classic Christmas, was just the right touch.  Here's a closer look:   


Thanks for checking me out and don't forget about our giveaway!

Good morning and happy 2nd post of the day!  Are you getting sick of me yet?  I hope you enjoyed my Lil' Inker Designs new release post (below) and are ready to check out my take on this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  I have to say, my card couldn't have been simpler but I LOVE how it turned out.  Here's what I made:


This card couldn't have been easier.  I started with some polka dot paper from a KaiserCraft paperpack called First Noel.  It is an AMAZING pack of patterned paper.  A total must have for the holidays.  I added the stripes with some black glitter tape and finished it all off with a sticker from the KaiserCraft First Noel 12 x 12 Sticker Sheet and a bit of holly from the diecut pack.  Here's a closer look:


Like I said, simple but fun!  I hope you'll come join us at CAS(E) this Sketch this week.  Have a great day!

Lil' Inker Designs October Release Day #2


It's day two of the Lil' Inker Designs New Release Hop and I get to share even more fun goodies with you today!  I'm sure you've already been eyeing all the awesome new items, lucky for you, you can get it all right now in the Lil' Inker Store.  Hopefully, you checked out all of Caly's blog amazing creations before hopping here.  If not, make sure you check it out and if you get lost along the hop you can always find your spot by going to the Lil' Inker Blog.  For now, I'm ready to show off some more fun stuff!

My first card for you today uses the new Merry Ornaments Stamps.


I love this set!  With so many ways to layer it, you can get tons of looks!  I chose to emboss the ornament base in the Merry Ornaments Stamps in red and add accents in black along with a silver embossed topper.  I fussy cut my creation out and then layered on this fun black polkadot paper with a little foam tape for dimension.  Finally, I added to strips of red glitter tape to the bottom to emphasize the red in the ornament.  Here's a closer look:


My next card uses the Mitten Shaker Die Set and the Ready, Set, Snow Stamps


I created this fun tag using two cuts of the Mitten Shaker Die Set.  I wanted to show it as an awesome shaker and just a cute mitten.  I mixed up the patterns on the mitten cuff and added the fun snowflakes from the Ready, Set, Snow Stamps in a soft gray to my white mitten.  I stamped one mitten with this cute sentiment from Ready, Set, Snow Stamps and layered one mitten on the other before attaching some twine for a loop.  I can't wait to use this on a gift bag or pretty package!  Here's a closer look:
