CAS(E) this Sketch #86

Welcome to CTS #86! Here's another lovely created by Sam! I know, I know... this is an incredibly literal interpretation of the sketch. I used a very old Anna Griffin stamp (bee), a newer PTI die (love the Wet Paint Cuts word dies!) and some washi tape. Love that black/white/yellow combo - so crisp and clean!
Please join in the fun at CAS(E) this Sketch #86 - the DT(and special guest, Shannon Jaramillo!) has fashioned some real beauties! We can't wait to see what you've created!!

CAS(E) this Sketch #85

Whoo hoo - it's time for CTS #85, and it's a CAS lovely from N@AliMy card is surely a very simple interpretation of the sketch, and there's no sentiment required (but you certainly could add one if you'd like)! I paired a few of the pretty papers from DCWV's "Little Miss" paper stack (which I am also using to make a mini scrapbook for our friend's newest grand baby!) with some kraft CS and a few pearls.

Hope that you'll join in at CAS(E) this Sketch #85!!

Phrase Play Phrenzy!!

Hi all! I have been down in the craft cave doing some clean up and reorganization (got one of these lovelies for my b'day!) AND also enjoying a bit of play time with some of my newest stuff. Currently, I'm obsessed with this Papertrey Ink Phrase Play #5 die and it's coordinating stamp. See what I'm talking about??

Card #1 is a CASE of Laurie's card..... I just loved it so!!

With card #2 I was able to use of some of the bits and pieces on my desk!

Card #3 is another bright one and would be great for a masculine b'day!

CAS(E) this Sketch #84

Welcome to CAS(E) this Sketch #84! Hope that you'll join in the fun and create with this fabulous sketch from Chrissy Larson!
I decided on an older Verve stamp and a classic HA sentiment in a fairly bold (for me!) color combo. Just a bit of glossy accents on the design centers, a couple of tiny strips of black, and that's all she wrote!
AND... a very warm welcome to our new CASE(E) this Sketch DT member, Leslie Croghan and this week's Guest Designer, Tracey McNeely!!

CAS(E) this Sketch #83

A very HAPPY 4th of July to all! Many thanks for taking a peek at CTS #83 - a beautiful sketch from Gayatri! And see those lovely flowers? Ah...
This creation started off as an attempt at a Jennifer/Kristina technique demonstrated here- I just never got to steps #2, 3 or 4! While waiting for the white ink to dry (step #1) I thought, hmmm.... wouldn't that make a nice little background?? Just added a banner (used my new PTI Wet Paint Cuts die) and some adorable Paper Smooches flower dies and voila! 
Hope that everyone has a great holiday weekend and that you'll find the time to create something beautiful for CAS(E) this Sketch #83!
