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!

Another stormy day in store for Nova Scotia, perfect weather to make cards or do something crafty as long as the power stays on! Check out the fun sketch for this week, love the moustache...


This week I tried out my new camera stamp from Stampin' Up! and mixed it up with some washi tape, a label maker sentiment and some copic colouring.

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!

CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #107

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


I went with another brayered card this week using two different red colours from the distress ink line. I used a die cut heart to cover up sections on the card base and then used the brayer to randomly ink the top strip. The large heart is a die cut that I inked on the bottom half along the edges. Final touch is a cute Paper Smooches stamp.


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

CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #106

It's another bitterly cold week here; perfect weather to snuggle in and make some cards! Check out the fun sketch to try this week.


I really enjoyed using my brayer last week, so I decided to use it again. I did a bit of experimenting to see what I could do with my brayer and ink on a one layer card. I was looking to create something kind  of messy with some texture, so after playing around I came up with this...


To make the coloured band on the bottom of my card I used Tim Holtz distress inks in dusty concord and broken china. I rolled my brayer first diagonally across the corner of the dusty concord ink pad on a section about 2 inches up from the edge of the roller. I tilted the edge away from the pad so I wouldn't cover the whole end with purple. Then I rolled the edge of the brayer (beneath the purple) over the corner of the blue ink pad. The plastic edge of the ink pad made a pattern in the purple ink when I rolled it, unfortunately most of that funky pattern disappeared when I applied the ink to paper. I still ended up with a neat triangle edge though. I will have to do another post showing the pattern in my sample pieces. Once the ink dried, I inked up a crosshatch pattern stamp and ran my brayer over the stamp and then randomly applied it to the blue/purple edge. Two sentiments finish off this one layer card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

CAS(E) this Sketch #105

Welcome back to CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge, I hope everyone had good holidays!
Check out the fun sketch we have for you to try this week...


I still had a lot of my card making supplies pulled out from Christmas, so I sifted through that stuff first and then went in search of stamp to suit my idea. I've been on a brayer kick these past weeks, so I used a kaleidoscope ink pad for my background and found a perfect lava lamp stamp to go with it. I guess I was really kind of retro :)


We would love to have you play along this week! Stop by and check out the design team's ideas!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
