CAS(E) this Sketch #186

I had a lot of ideas for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge this week.  I finally settled on this design.

Besides this reminds me of Fall and I really am ready for Fall. :) These summer temps have been rough. 

I stamped the image on patterned paper and die cut it.  It is colored with Copics.  Used another border die for the stitched lines on the card and then stamped the sentiment.  I spent a lot of time looking for this stamp in my stash!  This stamp has a story.  Some years ago, I bought the die cut and decided I really wanted the matching stamp. Could not find it anywhere! Well as soon as I stopped looking for it, I found it!  I was on vacation, and found it at a shop in Maine. So happy I went into that shop!  

Glad you came by, see you soon.

Supplies: Memory Box Trendy Trees stamp and die, Paper Smooches Stitched die, Avery Elle O Happy Day stamp set.

Lawnscaping Challenge # 135

The theme for the Lawnscaping Challenge  this week is Patterned Palooza!  What a terrific name.

I did the sunburst technique using Lawn Fawn papers. The image is colored with copics and  die cut.   I tried a lot of different colored card bases and I just had a heck of a time!  I finally decided that the black look the best. :-).

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies used: Stamp-Lawn Fawn Into the Woods. Papers- Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid and Let's Bokeh, Authentic

CAS(E) this Sketch # 184

Great sketch for this weeks challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch  it can be recreated in so many ways.

This stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, is one of my favorites.  I stamped the image in Versamark and heat embossed in platinum  on watercolor paper.  Then I watercolored it with a LOT of bright colors. The sentiment  banner is also stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in platinum and cut with flag ends.  I used glue dots to adhere the banner for just a little dimension.

Supplies Used: Stamps: One With Nature (SSS), Ranger Embossing powder, Gansai Tambi watercolors
