CAS(E) this Sketch #349--Take Two

I'm popping in to share another card for CAS(E) this Sketch #349, because
I just had to squeeze in another gnome 😉.

Yes, the little bro of the original gnome arrived and fit perfectly inside of a 

The card was assembled per the sketch, and I used some striped paper under
him. A tiny font sentiment was the perfect finishing touch. Remember you have 
until Thursday, December 5th to enter your card(s) for Sketch #349.
Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends and anyone else who celebrates. I'm so
grateful to those of you who visit my blog, Flickr, and Instagram.
Have a safe and happy holiday!

Joyful Snowman Tag

One more tag for Day 19 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags with a little

I loved the little PS snowman as a stamp and when he came out as a (bigger) die,
he just had to come home with me.

Karin's sweet tag inspired mine and I substituted her little fox with the
snowman. I spattered a bit of snow on the tag and snowman, then added
the sentiment and DIY snowball. I just realized that this is an "all die" tag.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

CAS(E) this Sketch #349

Brian brings us this week's CAS(E) this Sketch and it's a two-weeker
That means our US friends can enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday and still have 
plenty of time to enter!

Here's Sketch #349.

And here's my take on it.

The gnome? Again? Yes! Possibly for the last time but I'm not making any
promises. I substituted the little guy for the rectangle element on the sketch,
placed him over some Sunny Studio patterned paper and finished off the
card with some green sprigs and a simple sentiment.

Remember this is a two week challenge so we hope you'll stuff yourselves
silly, grab some good Black Friday deals and find some time to squeeze in a little
CAS(E) this Sketch! Your card(s) are due on Thursday, December 5th and we
do hope to see you in the gallery!

A Gnome Tag for 25 Days of Christmas Tags

I'm joining my dear friend Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags which is in its 
9th year! And her list of sponsors has grown tremendously, as well as the number
of tag entries. Way to go, Tracey!

When I saw that the sponsor for Day 10 was Simon Says Stamp, I pulled out their
Gnome Wafer Die and got to work. Here's my tag, using products from FIVE
different companies.

I LOVE this little gnome. My tag was totally inspired by Maura's tag. I was
inspired by her tag colors and I dug out my bag of rayon ribbons, too.

A Neat and Tangled tag die was texturized with Hero Arts' woodgrain die.
The gnome was cut from white card stock and ink distressed. Some sprigs of
greenery were tucked behind the gnome and topped with the white embossed
sentiment. The tag was finished off with a rayon seam binding bow.

 Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to Maura for the inspiration! If time permits,
I'm hoping to link up another tag or two--how about you?

CAS(E) this Sketch #348

Are you ready for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch?
Here's Sketch #348 from Chrissy.

And here's my take on it.

Leaves were cut from scraps of "smooshed" watercolor pieces and adhered to
a card, then topped off with the simple sentiment. And this card is done!

CAS(E) this Sketch #347

CAS(E) this Sketch #347 is a retro one. Remember this?

Here was my take back in 2015.

And here's my take four years later.

Anyone counting how many times I've used this Altenew washi tape? (Answer: 6)
I adhered a piece to white card stock, then cut it out with a stitched rounded die.
After adhering it to a light gray card base, I popped up a sentiment and finished off
with some sequins.
