CAS(E) This Sketch

I decided to play along with the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch this week. 

Here is the sketch.


Here is my card.  I used a very muted background from one of my 6 x 6 pads.


Here is a close up of the flower.  I stamped the flower and leaves on colored patterned paper.  I used my Scan N Cut to cut the flower layers and leaves.  I love that new toy. 


I am very pleased with how the card turned out.  I made three total of this card design.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches

I have tried to play along with Freshly Made Sketches each week.  Unfortunately many times I do not get my card posted.  Pure laziness on my part.

This week I did do the sketch and here I am posting it. 

Here is the Sketch.


I found some patterned papers I liked in one of my many 6 x6 pads.  My card is A2.  It will be sent overseas to one our Heroes serving their country.


All my layers are inlaid so the card is very flat except for the sentiment which is pop dotted.

I like the combination of coral, teal and gray.

Thanks for stopping by.

It is Monday - time to show some love for your old supplies.



A couple quick cards using scraps found in a box.  I added some sewing to change things up a little.

Remember to show some love for your old supplies.

Oldie Moldie Monday

It is Monday.  time to show some love to your old supplies.

This card uses washi tape that I have in my drawer.  I do ask myself why do I have so much washi tape and tell myself to use it.  I made six of this card.  The paper is also from an older 6 x 6 pad.  The sentiment stamp and dies are new.  Your new supplies can make your old supplies more exciting.


I kept a couple of this card for my supplies, one went in my box to support the charities that my friend Mary supports and 3 will go in my Hero box.

Remember to show some love for your old supplies.

January Happy Little Stampers ATC Challenge

It is time for the January challenge at Happy LIttle Stampers for ATC's


An ATC (artist trading card) measures 2.5  x  3.5.  It is to be traded not sold.

Here is my ATC.  I had lots of fun making it.  I was inspired by a card I had seen on Pinterest so went to my supplies to see what I had that would work.  The tree stamp I have had for over 10 years.  It is a stamp I reach for many times to make sympathy cards for a male.  I used a die to cut the leaf opening.
I had some great chunky embossing powder that I used around the outside edge of the ATC.


Here is a close up of one corner.

January Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies Challenge

It is time for the first challenge of the new year at Anything Goes with Dies challenge at Happy Little Stampers

I love challenges that are Anything Goes.  You have a whole world of creativity open to you.


I chose to make a birthday card.  This card went to my son in law who lives in Alaska.  They see moose all the time.  When I visited last year in March, my moose siting was in the city limits.  Two moose were at the car wash and ambled across the street to Walgreens.  How fun.  I also made this same design into Christmas cards for my grandsons.


Here is a close up of the moose.


Here is a close up of the birch trees and pine trees.
