CAS(E) this Sketch #227


It's Thursday--time for a new CAS(E) this Sketch!
Here's Sketch #227, a fun, CAS one compliments of N@ Ali.


And here's my take on it.


I got carried away with Distress Oxide inks and what started out as simple
ink distressing turned into ink smooshing. A couple of luminous jellyfish,
a white embossed sentiment and some Nuvo Dew Drops and I'm hoping
you're feeling "ocean" rather than "galaxy". 

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted the
sketch, and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, June 29th
and as the winner, you could be joining us as a guest designer!

SSS One of a Kind Release



One of a Kind is Simon Says Stamp's newest release and they kindly sent me
a gorgeous die--Frond Collage--to play with.
Here's my project using the die.


After cutting out the die on a watercolor card stock panel, I colored in the image
with Copic markers. The sentiment was white embossed on vellum and adhered
behind the opening of the die.



The panel was adhered to a gray card base with dimensional adhesive, and Sparkling
Clear sequins finished off the card.

You can find this die, and the entire One of a Kind release on sale now in the
Simon Says Stamp store!



MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #338


Here's this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge #338.

And here's how I interpreted the sketch. Can you tell that I'm excited about
the upcoming Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop?
That, and I'm a matcha (green tea) lover


I white embossed the Floral Fantasy Background on watercolor card stock,
ink distressed with Distress inks and die cut the teapot. I adhered a stitched
frame to a card base, then popped up the teapot. I finished off the card
with the sentiment and a few enamel dots.
