CAS(E) this Sketch # 165

This weeks sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch # 165 is:

This sketch has sooooo many possibilities.  I had a hard time deciding on on design.  This is what I made.

I cut a piece of wood grained patterned paper for the shelf and then stamped all the books in different colors and then cut them out.  I die cut the 'hello' three times and adhered them on top of one another for dimension.  I wanted to keep it clean, but it was super hard for me not to add stuff. :-).
I do like the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.

Supplies used:  Stamps: Simon Says Stamp To Thine Own Shelf. Die: SSS Painted Hello

Lawnscaping Challenge

Lawnscaping Challenge #126 is all about Sweets!

Our family can put away a lot of ice cream!!  (I always know what to serve for dessert)   I stamped the cherry on the card front  as a background and colored with copics. Then I stamped the gingham image, because it reminded me of a tablecloth. :)  The images are also colored with Copics, die cut and then popped up on foam squares.   

Thanks for stopping back soon.

Supplies Used:  Stamps: Lawn Fawn's Gingham Backdrops and Treat Yourself

CAS(E) this Sketch #163

The sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch #163 this week is:

I almost immediately had a idea for this sketch.

What came to mind is the colored Easter eggs rolling down into a Easter basket.  I colored the eggs and Easter basket with copics and then fussy cut them.  I don't know where the sentiment is from, it was given to me and it wasn't identified. I do like the way it turned out.

P.S. My card was an Honorable Mention for Challenge #162 on  CTS.  Yay!!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon.

Supplies Used: Stamps: SSS Melody's Easter

CAS(E) this Sketch # 162

This is the sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch #162  this week.

I used a stencil and tinted embossing paste to create the card panel.  I heat embossed the images in white and then water colored using distress inks, and then die cut it.  After wrapping some twine around the card panel I mounted it on fun foam to the card front.  The succulent image is mounted on foam squares on the front of the card, over the twine.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I love succulents and they are hearty plants, which is good because I tend to kill plants. :)  Thank goodness my husband remembers to water!

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.

Supplies Used:
Stencil: SSS Screened Leaves.  Dies: SSS Garden of Succulents.  Stamps:  SSS Handwritten Borders. Inks: Ranger Distress Ink-Shabby Shutters, Candied Apple, Worn Lipstick

Hair Clips

I wanted to show you some of the hair clips I made my granddaughter.  She is 2 years old and has a definite aversion to anyone styling her hair, she has super curly hair and it doesn't really want to stay where you want it to. :) so I thought I would make some hair clips hoping she would wear them. 

I bought some hair clips at the local beauty supply store and I had dies that I used to die cut the images from felt.  The bear is from SSS Spring Showers and I think he is my favorite.  All the dies are from Simon Says Stamp except  the little dear is from Lawn Fawn.  I accented with googly eyes, Liquid Pearls, Copics, twine and other pieces of felt.  I also used the Lawn Fawn's Meadow Borders to cut 'grass' for the background.  I attached them to clips with hot glue and used Ranger Multi Medium to attach noses and eyes to the felt. 

Verdict is she loved them and wanted to wear them all at once!!! We got her to settle on just one at a time but she wanted to change it up every hour or so!!

See you soon!

CAS(E) this Sketch #161

I have been sick with a horrible cold/flu/virus for a couple of weeks now and I sorta kinda feel a little better so I decided to enter this challenge, hoping it would make me feel somewhat normal. :)

The featured sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch #161 is:

And this is my card:
When I saw the sketch, I envisioned a kite as the main image.  I blended the background and clouds with distress inks and used a Savvy die for the kite image.  The sentiment is from SSS Abby's Spring Flowers.  I added glossy accents to the heart in the kite and the kite string.  I used Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches set for the card front and then mounted it on patterned paper.  I added some sequins and called it done! 

Well, this card made me feel a little better, so that's good!  

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you soon.
