CAS(E) this Sketch #86


This is my fourth post for today. Here are my Runway Inspired Challenge post, CASE Study post, Premiering V for CheVron stamp set from Winnie & Walter post.

Welcome back! On Thursdays, we from CAS(E) this Sketch bring you a new sketch. This is the new sketch for this week designed by Sam Simpson.


Fabulous CAS sketch. I had my PTI Make it Market: Beautiful Brush Strokes kit arrive in the mail. So I played with the stamp sets and papers that came with the kit using this sketch.

Thanks card

I took the sketch literally but instead of the hexagon and bee, I decided to use flowers and leaves. I stamped the flowers and leaves, diecut them and clustered them together. I have used the blue colourwash pattern paper from the paper pad in the kit. Trimmed a strip of the black and white polka dot paper which I glued to the card front. I adhered the cluster using foam adhesives, diecut the frame, stamped the sentiment and glued as shown. Finally adhered the clear dew drops. 

Thanks

It is you turn to play along. Head over to CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other designers did with the sketch and picture. You can also find the linky to link your project at the blog.

Have a wonderful day!

Welcome back to Day #4 of Winnie & Walter July new releases.

weblogo
Today were are premiering a fab new graphic stamp set called V for CheVron. I love love this set. This set has large solid and outline chevron and various design smaller chevrons stamps as well. I love graphic stamp sets. Hands down! So it is a must have in my collection. Here is my card using the large outline chevron stamp.

Welcome vertical

I white heat embossed the large outline chevrons on watercolour paper. Then used distress inks to colour inside the chevrons. Once dry, I cut them out and mounted on the card front using foam adhesives. I then stamped the sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Blessings stamp set. Accented with sequins. I let the colours on the chevron speak for itself. Love how the chevron points to the sentiment.

CASE Study #201

This is my second post for today. Here is my Runway Inspired Challenge post.

Today I have another gorgeous digital card from Shari Carroll as the new CASE Study Challenge muse. Yay! I love CASEing Shari's cards. Don't you? So come and play along the challenge.
Here is Shari's muse card and you can read how she created it HERE.


After I read how Shari made this card, I was so inspired by the use of digital designs. So I decided to do the same. Here is my CASEd card.


Good day Sunshine card

I browsed through  Kerri Bradford design blog and found this fab digital phrase - Good Day Sunshine. This is a freebie. Yay! Kerri has plenty of freebies for you. Explore them. I simply printed the phrase on a white cardstock and yellow cardstock. Trimmed to size. Then diecut Sunburst die from Simon Says Stamp on the yellow cardstock. I went through the phrase with Wink of Stella shimmer. The yellow diecut  is mounted on top of the white cardstock using foam adhesives aligning with the phrase. Pretty Pink Posh's Oynx sequins is added as accents. This panel is glued on the black card base.

Come and play along with us.

In August CASE Study is celebrating its 4th Anniversary. Yay!


Cannot wait for the fun!

Runway Inspired Challenge #64

Good morning! I have several post today, starting with Runway Inspired Challenge reminder.

Happy Birthday closeup

I did not have a chance to show you my card for this challenge as I was overseas and forgot to photograph my card in time to post for the challenge. Now that I am back and into the routine, I have done that. Here is the current challenge.



Here is my take on the challenge.

Happy Birthday vertical

I have used the scribble flowers and leaves from Simon Says Stamp on my card. I have watercoloured the flowers and leaves using distress inks. To add to the glitter, I have used the grey glitter paper. The sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamp set and dies. No card of mine nnow a days is complete with Pretty Pink Posh's sequins. I think for this card they are perfect. 

Happy Birthday card

Come and play along the Runway Inspired Challenge, there is still time to play.

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon.

Today we are premiering another sentiment stamp set in the Big and Bold series called The Big, the Bold and Seasons.  This set comes with the big bold brush stroke names of seasons fonts and smaller adjectives describing the seasons. Then there are smaller images coordinating with seasons as well. On my cards below, I have used the coordinating images and sentiment.

Spring card


Summer card


Autumn card

Winter card

I have made four cards for the four seasons. Used the small images in the season colours and stamped on the card panel. Then stamped the sentiment below. I then mounted the card panel on coloured cardstock base. The cards are accented with the gorgeous sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Lawn Fawn.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Anything Goes Reminder

Hello everybody,

There is still time to play along Curtain Call Challenge - Anything Goes.


Here is my second card for the challenge.

Celebrate card

The background is created using stencil and sponging inks. I have sponged some lighter and darker shade of the same ink to give some shading. I added some glitter to the butterflies. Then stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things on white cardstock, trimmed and mounted on the card front using foam adhesives with bunched up thread under the sentiment panel. I love the colour combo in this card and how the gray big sentiment brings the rest of the colours together.

So come and play Curtain Call Anything Goes Challenge with me. There are so many prizes to giveaway as we are celebrating our 1st Anniversary.

Thanks for stopping by!

Premiering The Scenery: It's a Wonderful Pennant

Hey my dear friends, Welcome back to day #2 of Winnie & Walter July new release post.

weblogo

Today we are premiering another new stamp set called It's a Wonderful Pennant. This stamp set has so many patterned triangle pennant which can be used not just as pennant but in various other ways. Here on my card I have used them as Christmas trees combining with the sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Blessings stamp set premiering yesterday


Joyful blessings vertical

I have white heat embossed the outline triangle pennant on watercolour paper. Then watercoloured them using Festive Berries and Mowed Lawn distress inks. I then cut them out and layered them to the center of the card panel. I have used the gorgeous gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to add festivity to the trees. I have used the sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Blessings stamp set using fog ink form Simon Says Stamp. Simple but the watercoloured triangles add to the punch.

Joyful blessings1

I have another card here using It's a Wonderful Pennant and The Big, the Bold and Blessing cut files

Holiday Blessings1

I die cut the cut files using my Silhouette then sponged some distress inks on them. I have mounted the pennants using the foam adhesives,  blessings die cut on top. I stamped the holiday sentiment on a strip of white cardstock, made the banner ends and adhered. Finally to add to the Christmas festivity, I have added the golden star confetti from Pretty Pink Posh.

Premiering the Big, the Bold and Blessings


Hello! Welcome to the July new  release from Winnie & Walter

weblogo

This is the first day of release and we are featuring a new stamp set from The Big and the Bold series called The Big, the Bold and Blessings. This stamp set keeps with the gorgeous brush stroke style of large sentiments paired with smaller sentiments in a courier font. I love this set. Here is my card using this stamp set.

Grateful card 1

I have heat embossed the sentiments using copper coloured Zing embossing powder and used the flowers from The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom stamp set to stamp the flowers and leaves. I have used the beautiful flower and Sparkly sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to accent. Layering with pattern papers is something I am fond of at the moment. So I picked pattern papers with similar colours to the flowers for layering. Here is a closeup.
