MFT December Release Countdown--Day 3



Welcome to Day 3 of My Favorite Things December Release Countdown
and this month, Pure Innocence has a reader's theme, too.


The little Bookworm and crawling bookworm were colored with Copics and
cut with the matching dies. I trimmed a piece of dotted patterned paper and
adhered it to the card, then popped up the two images over it.


The sentiment was stamped on a banner strip and popped up on the card
and I finished off the card with a few enamel dots.

MFT December Release Countdown--Day 4



It's Day 4 of My Favorite Things December Release Countdown!
 All new products will go on sale Tuesday, December 6th at 9PM EST.


This month Birdie Brown brings us Our Story dedicated to all you bibliophiles
(book lovers!) out there. My card brings back memories of our younger daughter
who pretty much taught herself to read by the time she was 3 years old.
I had nothing to do with that--she just had a great memory!


The little reader, stack of books and kitty were colored with Copics and cut
with the matching Die-namics. I stenciled a background with the new
Star Grid Stencil on Natural card stock and added a stitched frame.


A die cut oval shadow became a small rug, and the images were popped
up over it. The card was finished off with the sentiment.

MFT December Release Countdown--Day 5



It's time for My Favorite Things December Release Countdown!
As always, there's something for everyone and Day 5 starts with cuteness
from Somebunny I Love.


The bunny, toy bear, and crescent moon were stamped and colored with
Copics, then cut with the matching dies. A panel of Stone Gray card stock
was cut from the rectangle element in Blueprints 24. The Starry Circle
Die-namics was used to cut out a circle from the gray panel and also
from a piece of watercolor card stock.


I ink distressed the starry portion with several colors of Distress
inks, and spattered some water over it. The gray panel was adhered
to a white card base, the starry circle was popped into the space, and
the images were popped up over it. The card was finished off with
the sweet sentiment.

CAS(E) this Sketch #200


Welcome back to CAS(E) this Sketch

Did you enjoy your two week hiatus? Did you miss us?
Well we're glad you're back and hope you're ready for Sketch #200.
Whoa, our 200th sketch? That calls for a celebration, don't you think?
More about that later. First, here's the sketch, compliments of Sam.


And here's my take on it.


Yep, I rotated the sketch and let a sloth hang from some birch trees.
Now I know sloths don't hang on birch trees, but I had to have that
sloth hang somewhere and birch trunks fit the sketch.
Plus, I think she looks quite happy there, no?

So to commemorate our 200th sketch, our fearless leader Chrissy is
giving away a generous prize to the winner of this week's sketch! Head to  
her blog to see the prize and join the challenge if you can. Link up your
card(s) by Thursday, December 8th and we hope to see you in the gallery!
