CAS(E) this Sketch #115

Well after being snow bound for a day and a half it was nice to get out today! Snow days are perfect for making cards though. Check out the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge sketch to play along with this week...


I decided this week to pick through my basket of technique pieces I've been hoarding. Usually when I try a different technique in card making I end up with extra pieces or pieces that don't quite fit the project I'm doing, basically a basket of odds and ends. I found a quilted block (the exact name of the technique escapes me) and paired it with a matching button and label maker sentiment for a quick and easy card.


We would love to have you play along with us this week. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

CAS(E) this Sketch #114

It's finally starting to warm up a bit here in Nova Scotia, but I just heard there is another snowstorm coming for the weekend :( The time changed, so the days are longer and I won't complain about that. Feel like making a card this week, then head on over to CAS(E) this Sketch and check out this sketch!


I used a technique that I learned in stamp club recently that was perfect for this sketch. It's very simple. Cut three rectangles and stack them on top of one another and stamp your images. Then separate the rectangles and mount them on card stock. Re-align them back together as your front card panel so the images line up and then stamp your sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #111

Well, I must say that was an interesting storm this past weekend here in Atlantic Canada. Sunday turned out to be the perfect day to stay indoors and craft all day! Check out the sketch to try this week  at CAS(E) this Sketch...


I went back to one of my favourite simple colour combos; black and white with a pop of red. I used a Hero Arts stamp that I haven't touched since I bought it and came up with this 2 layer card.


Come on over this week and join in on the fun, we'd love to have you play along!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #110

Welcome back to another fun week at CAS(E) this Sketch! Check out the sketch to try this week...


I've been cleaning out my art room this week so I decided to use some long lost items I found. I used glossy paper for the card base and stamped a doily image with versamark and then embossed it with clear powder. To make the image pop more, I sponged red ink over the image and wiped the excess from the embossed areas. The sentiment is some glitter stickers I found stashed away in a long forgotten binder. 


We would love to have you play along tis week! Thanks for stopping by and have a great crafty day!

CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #108

Well here we are back for another CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge! Check out the fun sketch to try this week...


I tend to use white in my cards quite a bit, so I challenged myself this week to use as little white as possible. I tried my brayer again this week with a different technique. For the sentiment block I used a white crayon and wrote the sentiment. Then I brayered ink over top and then wiped the excess off the parts that had crayon. The card base was made using strips of washi tape.


We would love to have you play along with us this week, so stop on by and join in the fun!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
