CAS(E) this Sketch #173

Hola! It's a beautiful sunny Thursday - and time for CTS #173, from N@Ali! Loving this perfectly CAS layout.... SO many possibilities. The DT has provided a lovely array of designs to kick-start your creativity!
I've gone all bold, bright and super hero-ish with this b'day card! Frantic Stamper has a great die set that has three bold words and two perfect shapes  - which are just right for a masculine b'day (which I never, ever have enough of!).
We hope that you'll find the time to play along with us at CAS(E) this Sketch #173- can't wait to see what you've created!
P.S. - Please welcome GD extraordinaire, Melody!

Got Cake?

Yes, just a bit of cake LOVE! Happy mail from Reverse Confetti arrived yesterday and shortly thereafter a pretty pile of cakes and fabulous Big Stripes cover plate dies materialized.... all ready to be assembled. I'm totally inspired by/CASEing Amy Kolling's beautiful creation (here) and love everything about her card, down to the lovely gray stamping and silver/gray center.

CAS(E) this Sketch #172

Leigh has designed a beautiful sketch for CTS #172, and I'm/we're waiting anxiously to see your fabulous interpretations!
LOVE Leigh's card, and was quite tempted to use the very same stamp set. However, instead I've inked up Papertrey Ink's newest Make It Market Kit (I was powerless to resist!). Oh SO worth it because of those lovely stamps and matching dies. There's a mountain of floral/frame die cuts on my crafting table just a-waitin' for a project, or two, or three! Here's one with a very simple green/black/red color combo - clearly one of my favorites.
Can't wait to see your lovely CAS(E) this Sketch #172 projects!
And...... a warm welcome to our talented GD, Deanne!

CAS(E) this Sketch #171

Welcome to CTS #171 and another lovely sketch from Sam! Lots of beautiful inspiration from the DT too, so be sure to take a peek!
Totally CAS for me..... lots of white and bright! Love the images from this SSS set and the perfect sentiment (and 'splatters') from Reverse Confetti's 'Color Me Happy'.
We hope that you'll find some time to play along with us at CAS(E) this Sketch #171!
P.S. - A warm welcome to GD, Emily!
