CTS #305

Hello everyone!  Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my take on this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge!  The boys and I have been running around making sure everything is ready for some yucky weather we are supposed to be expecting tomorrow.  Most of the snow we had is gone so I guess it's time for some more.  I could live without the dropping temp and the wind but I guess it is a good excuse to get some card making in and relax with my boys.

I hope you are having a great week and are ready to play along with us.  I love this sketch and I couldn't wait to get creating.  Here's my take:


I just can't help but pull out this awesome set from Papertry Ink over and over.  It is so simple and perfect.  It's the Sending You Comfort Stamp Set and it is perfect for so many things.  Today, I used it for a sympathy card.  I started with a kraft card base and stamped the solid leaves with Navy ink.  Next, I stamped and embossed the lined leaves with some rose gold embossing.  To finish it off, I stamped a sentiment on a strip of kraft and layered it with a bit of navy card stock.  Here's a closer peek:


I hope you enjoyed my take on this week's sketch and that I'll see your creations over at CAS(E) this Sketch.  Have a great weekend!!!

Lil' Inker Designs January 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 Amy'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 the Perfect Pairs 2 Stamps, Perfect Pairs 2 Die Set, and Quilted Stitched All Hearts Die as well as the previously released Love Is Love Stamps.


This card turned out SO cute.  I had my inks all scattered about my desk and these four colors were close together.  I thought it would be a fun starting point to this card so I stamped the "LOVE" from Love Is Love Stamps repeatedly on a strip of white paper to create a background for my little couple.  Next, I stamped the pie and whip cream from the Perfect Pairs 2 Stamps, colored it, and cut it using the Perfect Pairs 2 Die Set.  I added some shine to these with Glossy Accents and added them to my strip of love.  I added a quick sentiment from Perfect Pairs 2 Stamps beneath the cute pair.  I layered this on some teal paper and right before adding it to a kraft card base, I realized that I needed some texture and I just love the look of the new Quilted Stitched All Hearts Die.  Here's a closer look:


My final card today features the Quilted Stitched All Hearts Die and the Perfect Pairs Additions Stamps as well as one of my favorites, the previously released Perfect Pairs Stamps, Perfect Pairs Die Set.


I started by stamping and coloring this adorable dynamic duo from Perfect Pairs Stamps and cutting them out with the coordinating Perfect Pairs Die Set.  This has long been one of my favorites and I love having a new set and extra sentiments to use with them!  Next, my little guys needed a landing space so I added some texture to a black piece of card stock using the Quilted Stitched All Hearts Die and then decided a full piece of black was a little too dark to add over the patterned heart paper I had picked so, I grabbed an old Lil' Inker Wrapper die and cut out the sunburst.  I added a strip of white for my sentiment from the new Perfect Pairs Additions Stamps and then layered everything up before adding some enamel hearts.  Here's a closer look:


I'm so glad you've been hopping with me for this whole release.  I love having you here!  Thanks for checking me out and don't forget about our giveaway!

Lil' Inker Designs January 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 Amy'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!

I couldn't wait to share this card with you guys because I love the Perfect Palette Heart Die.  It is so cute and pairs so well with the Heartthrob Stamps.


I cut the Perfect Palette Heart Die from so many different colors and was just having fun playing with it but when I cut it from kraft card stock, I was hooked.  I layered this cut on some white card stock and started stamping some hearts from through the openings with the Heartthrob Stamps.  I just love the options with this stamp set!  So many fun combos.  I added a few of the stitched hearts back to the card front with some foam tape.  My sentiment was simple and stamped using the lovely sentiments in the Heartthrob Stamps on white strips.  A couple enamel heats finish off the card.  Here's a closer look:


My next card uses the adorable Bear Hugger Die & Stamp Bundle, a heart from the Perfect Palette Heart Die, and the previously release Fringe Scalloped Border Builder Die Set and Fringed Scalloped Rectangles Dies.


In case you didn't know it, I'm a sucker for all of the Hugger Dies.  They are SO cute and SO versatile.  I started this card by cutting out my Bear Hugger Die & Stamp Bundle from kraft and stamping his cute little face on.  I wanted this guy to be the center of attention so I cut a white Fringed Scalloped Rectangles to frame him.  It looked a little plain so I used the stomach sentiment from the Bear Hugger Die & Stamp Bundle to stamp circles as a background.  The next sized rectangle wasn't quite the right size for what I wanted so I grabbed the Fringe Scalloped Border Builder Die Set to create the exact size pink heart layer with the same border as my rectangle.  Love how it ended up looking side by side.  I layered all of this on a kraft card base and gave my bear a sweet stitched heart from the Perfect Palette Heart Die to hold (told you I cut it in a ton of colors!).  Here's a closer look:


Thanks so much for looking at my project today!  Thanks for checking me out and don't forget about our giveaway!

Lil' Inker Designs January Release Day #1


Hi, you guys!  It's day one of the Lil' Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop and I'm super excited to share all the new products with you!  I think you are really going to enjoy this release and all the new inspiration from our team.  It's packed with fun, as always and, lucky for you, all the new products are available right now at the Lil' Inker Store!  We have an amazing blog hop for you today so, hopefully, you are coming from Amy's blog and if not, you won't want to miss her amazing creations!  Make sure you didn't miss anyone and start at the Lil' Inker Blog.  Now for the fun!

Today I'm sharing my cute little coffee tag with you and I just know you will love it. 
 

I created this tag by cutting out a Love Tags Die Set from red card stock.  I just love the little hearts on the border!  Next, I cut the mug from Coffee Talk 2 Die Set out of the side of a disposable coffee cup that I had been saving because I loved the pattern.  I added some dark coffee inside with a little reflection added with a white gel pen.  I layered this on my card and got to work on my sentiment.  The sentiment couldn't be easier with the new With Love Word Die.  I cut a black and a vellum "with love" and layered them before adding it to my tag with some foam tape.  I added some touches to of white gel pen to the words too.  Finally, I used some of the hearts left over from the card I made with the new Perfect Palette Heart Die (I'll be showing that off tomorrow).  To finish the tag off, I added some enamel hearts, a piece of black twine, and a little touch of red Stickles.  Here's a closer look:


The next project I have to share uses the Radiating Love Heart Die and the Sending My Love Word Die.


This card was super simple but I love the look of it.  I started with a dip dyed card base and added the radiating look to the background with the Radiating Love Heart Die.  I found a piece of card stock that was the same tone as my card base but deeper and cut the heart from Radiating Love Heart Die and popped it in the center of the embossed area with foam tape.  Next, I layered several cuts of the Sending My Love Word Die, cut in black, before adding that to my card front also with foam tape.  Here's a closer look:


Thanks so much for looking at my projects today!  Don't forget about our giveaway!
