CTS #380

It's Thursday, Thursday, Thursday and I'm coming to you guys with my take on this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. I really hope you'll enjoy it and have a blast creating with it. I sure did. Don't miss out on our amazing team's takes on the sketch. They always has tons of gorgeous creations for you! I actually got down and made a card for you guys and, lucky for me, my cat helped. I bet you can see exactly where he was so helpful...


Yup, I stamped the sentiment in pigment ink (I can't remember the exact set this Hello came from because it has been on a block on my desk FOREVER!) and my sweet kitty "helped" me dry the sentiment. So, it is a little smeared but I still love the card. I used a paper pack from The Stamp Company and actually used the cover of the paper pack to get the stripes and used some border dies to cut them in a wave like pattern. I finished the card off with some puffy star stickers. Here's a closer look at my smear! Ha ha!


Have a great day and see you over at CAS(E) this Sketch.

Good morning and happy July! This week at CAS(E) this Sketch we have an awesome retro sketch and because I've been sick this week, I'm taking it WAY back. I'm hoping to get down to the craft room today to actually make a new card for this week's sketch but I didn't want to leave you with nothing this week. So I used one of the many cards I made for this sketch way back in the day. This one is from when I was on the Sweet Stamp Shop design team and what a fun gig that was! Here's the card from way back then:


Wow, is this ever a blast from the past. I know the Artsy Fartsy set isn't available still but I know a ton of companies have created similar sets since then. So, you shouldn't have a problem finding something similar but I will link to other options below. I kept this card pretty darn simple with just some coloring and some layering. Hopefully, now that I'm feeling better I can get a new card up but I do hope you at least enjoyed this one. I don't know what it was about his year but my allergies decided to plug my head full in February and sit there until this week. Finally, it all drained but that is a weird and painful process in and of itself. Lucky, things seem to have evened out and I can hear again! Woo hoo!

I hope you have a great week and hopefully, I will have a new post up tomorrow with a new card! Have a great day and see you over at CAS(E) this Sketch.

Good morning!  I hope you've checked out this morning's post over at CAS(E) this Sketch!  The challenge this week is great!  Of course, they always are!  If you are stopping by after seeing my card over there...thanks so much!  I'm flattered that you wanted to see how I made my crazy creation.  :)  You guys are awesome!  Here's what I created for this week:


I know, I know....another grad card using the same sets from Simon Says Stamp. I just can't help it! It is so easy to use and it just happens to be right there on my desk. Today's card is for my nephew and I kept it pretty simple because it just seems to suit his style to be clean and not too fussy. I cut a strip of red cardstock to resemble one of the banners on the sketch and then used the sentiments and grad cap to finish things off. Again, simple but I really love this look. I might just have to make some in other local school colors for next year. Here's a closer look:


Thanks SO much for checking out my card this week and I can't wait to see you over at CAS(E) this Sketch.

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope you are ready for yet another grad card! Ha ha ha! They just keep popping up everywhere and I love making sure the grads in our life are feeling extra special with all the crazy happening right now.  I hope you are all enjoying your summer. I feel like it is already flying by and I need it to SLOW DOWN! Here's hoping you can find some time in all the crazy to join us at CAS(E) this Sketch. Here's what I created:


Guess what, I used the same Simon Says stamp grad stuff for this card as I did for the others. I have to say, I'm really getting my money's worth from them. I love this school's colors and I was excited to get to use one of my favorite packs of patterned paper from Honeybee Stamps. So fun! I trimmed off the top of a tag die to get the flag shape on the front and then just did some cutting and layering. Easy peasy. Here's a closer look:


I hope you enjoyed my card for this week and will come join us at CAS(E) this Sketch.
