CAS(E) this Sketch #82

Hi all! Hope that you'll join in the fun at CAS(E) this Sketch #81! Just take a peek at the adorable sketch by N@Ali
Since I didn't have a cute monster stamp, or any close approximation, I went with um... tea cups! Of course, this make sense, right?? I also tried cars and a little holiday bird (Christmas in June/July perhaps??). I was just all over the place with this sketch! See?
Please welcome CTS's guest designer.... TORICO!!

Or this??

CAS(E) this Sketch #81/FUSION Challenge!

Hi all and happy Thursday! Prepare to be dazzled because CAS(E) this Sketch and FUSION have paired up for an amazing joint challenge!  I hope that this will be added inspiration/creative incentive and that you will play along with both challenges! To play in the FUSION challenge, you do not necessarily have to use the sketch- you can use the photo inspiration and/or the sketch. However, in order to link up to our CTS #81 challenge, you must use the sketch! I'm hoping to see LOTS of cards using both the sketch AND the inspiration photo (good for both challenges)!
This card is pretty simple, with a little bit of gold (and vellum) thrown in for good measure! The butterflies and mini dots are die cut from some lovely handmade paper - gifted from my friend, Pat, an amazingly talented fiber artist.  Kind of out of my comfort zone with the gold embossing.....which only took a few attempts (ha!).
ALSO, please give a warm welcome to this week's guest designer, Diane!

CAS(E) this Sketch #80!

Hey all! Another lovely one from CAS(E) this Sketch .... #80! I was inspired not only by the sketch itself, but by two cards from two of my very favorite artists (here and here)! Decided that I never have enough masculine and/or unisex b'day cards (usually flowers everywhere!!) so here is something a bit more graphic! 
Please join in the fun at CTS #80! The design team has surely created something memorable/Pin-able! AND please welcome CTS guest designer, Jeni Allen!

CAS(E) this Sketch #79

Welcome to CAS(E) this sketch #79.... a lovely creation courtesy of Chrissy Larson! I do believe that I had every color known to man inked up at some point or another, so not much method to this card madness!!
AND..... it's feelin' like summertime around here. Mind you, I am not complaining! We had such a long winter (which killed my favorite, and usually quite hardy, mint and thyme).  So having your crafting area in the basement may be advantageous!
Hope that you'll join us in creating for CTS #79!

Papertrey Ink MIM #166- Take Two!

One more for Papertrey Ink MIM #166 - and it's a teeny, tiny 3 1/2" x 5" card. Yup, just under the wire! So many ideas, so little crafting and photo time!! 

Many thanks to Dawn for an oh-so-inspiring technique! Just take a look at all of the amazing projects that other talented stampers have created here!!
