CAS(E) this SKETCH!

CTS is a challenge blog to inspire you to create a clean and simple card based on a fun sketch.
Here is my inspiration for this week’s challenge and brand new sketch.

It is that time for our friend’s twin boys to have their birthday.
I always make them an airplane card and this year is no exception.

Lots of stamping this week again.

I’m sad to say this will be my last post with the CTS gang.  My plate is a little full and I’ve had to make some hard decisions to lighten up on some of my blogging commitments.  It is really difficult to say goodbye to this design team.  I’ve put my heart into the start up and the creation of cards plus sketches.  But life has other plans for me right now.
I will still be around cheering everyone on and playing from the other side.

Hugs to all my amazing team members, I will miss working with all of you.

LOVE this sketch!
I’m using lots of stamps in this one and NO pattern paper.  I’m also using my favorite color combo right now.  Teal, yellow and kraft.  Amazing.
I have to say this is one of my all time favorite cards.
Mainly because it is a bit snarky.
hee hee

I love this inkwell stamp.  Isn’t fun?  I decided to turn the tag in the sketch into a label instead.  I stamped the inkwell onto the label itself and then the feather top on a scrap piece.  I trimmed out that feather and popped it up with some foam adhesive.  Just to give it a little something fun.

I’ve had this Smooch Spritz stuff for ages.  Never really knew what to do with it.  I’m so not savvy with the whole spritz crazy.  I can’t seem to make it look pretty.  So, I did it my way.  I sprayed a little onto some paper to make a puddle, then used the end of my paint brush (the handle end) to create some ink drops.  I went a little crazy and wish I could take it back.  Well, I can’t so I have to go with it.  Lol.  Note to self – practice beforehand on some scraps.

Those butterflies are stamped!  Uh huh, stamped.  It looks like patterned paper.  I love the grungy look of those butterflies and then stamped on chevron paper, so cool.  This is such a versitle sketch.  You can stamp, use pre-made elements or patterned paper.  Love all the great options.

When I saw that little pocket tag in the sketch, I couldn’t wait to make some sort of an interactive card. There is no better way to do that than with my Cameo. I searched through my files and saw this fun gift box card where the top pulls out. I shrunk it down and placed it on the front of the card.

Heehee, fun right?

I love how the top pulls up to reveal the little message inside. This is such a fun sketch, I can’t wait to see what everyone does with it.
