CAS(E) this Sketch #205

Here's this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #205 by our leader, Chrissy.

And here's my take on it.

Check out the texture from the embossing folder! I went with a Valentine
theme and after embossing the hearts and layering the panels, I finished off
the card with the white embossed sentiment.

There was quite a discussion about this sketch among the design team.
You must check out the other members to see their creativity and join us
if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, January 26th.
Hope to see you in the gallery!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #316

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for a new MFT Wednesday 
Sketch Challenge. Meet Sketch #316.

And here's how I interpreted the sketch.

I turned the circle element on the sketch into a heart and added the
adorable ellie and banner sentiment. The background is Lined Up Dots
and the card was finished off with a strip of patterned paper and sequins.

Visit the MFT Card Challenges blog for all the details on how you can win
up to a $20 MFT gift voucher. Hope to see you in the gallery!

MFT January Release Replay

It's time for My Favorite Things January Release Replay when the design team
shares fresh ideas and more inspiration with the latest release.

Here's my card using the new Abstract Heart Die-namics.

I thought about making a shaker card, but kept it simple by just inlaying the
diecut heart over an ink blended background. The card was finished off with the
gold embossed sentiment.

Visit My Favorite Things for more inspiration from the rest of the design team.
We hope you're enjoying the January release, and remember to use #mftstamps
whenever you share your projects on social media.

It's been quite a while since I've joined a CASology challenge. I'm linking up
this card just under the wire for this week's challenge.

Here's my card.

This card came together quickly, thanks to some tree parts that I had in my
stash of diecuts. I colored the tops with Zig markers and added trunks to them. 
I adhered them to a card base and grounded them with the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're having a great (long) weekend!
