CAS(E) this Sketch and Reverse Confetti

CAS(E) this Sketch219

Stopping in tonight to share a quick card for one of my FAVORITE challenges.....CAS(E) this Sketch.  Whenever I am struggling with a card, I look to a sketch challenge.  This challenge is ran by my friend Chrissy......she is beyond talented and super nice!!!  

I've used the adorable Foodie Fun from Reverse Confetti.  I thought making a card using the "You're the coolest" ice cream cone stamp would be perfect for my daughter, Payton.  She's been having a rough time of things lately......5th grade and friends is hard!  I stamped and die cut 2 of the cute ice cream cones and layered it over a white die cut panel done with the Drop Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.  A wavy banner of some coordinating polka dot paper was die cut using the banner from Greetings Frame Confetti Cuts.  A few enamel dots from Gina Marie Designs (these are amazing and cheap!) were added to finish.

Just a note

Just a Note3

Hello!  I've been busy making and sending some Happy Mail.........I have some great crafty friends to thank!  I knew just what I wanted to use to make a few cards!

I have been wanting to make a card like this ever since I got the Special Delivery Accents SugarCut.  I mean, who doesn't love rainbow envelopes?  I have lots of them and just looking at them makes me happy!  So I thought, let's re-create some rainbow envelopes!

Just a Note4

Using the Envelope die, I cut out 8 envelopes in rainbow cardstock colors.  I trimmed each "flap" off with my Tim Holtz guillotine trimmer, glued it back on, and added tiny white hearts to the centers (die cutting 8 white envelopes gave me the white hearts).  While I wanted to use the Stitched Rectangle from Birthday Journal Card, the envelopes didn't quite fit.  So, I trimmed down a white panel and added all my envelopes with foam adhesive.  This panel was layered onto a black scallop layer from Birthday Journal Card, leaving just a small black scallop border.  This ties in with the black sentiment strip that was white heat embossed with "Just a note" from Special Delivery.

Bold frames with Avery Elle

Double Pierced Rectangles

Hello!  I am sharing a card that can be seen over on the Avery Elle blog today using Scalloped Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments.
I knew I wanted to go BOLD using these Scalloped Pierced Rectangle dies.  They are a must have in your Avery Elle stash!  I used the smaller 2 frames and die cut both out of black cardstock.  I left in the black rectangle with the small one when I adhered it, so I could add the stamped "HELLO" panel done in white over the top for dimension.  (The HELLO stamp is from Canopy) The bloom, from Mimosas, was black heat embossed onto Bristol smooth watercolor paper.  To color, I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  The ink just glides on and blends beautiful!  (gamechanger----the paper!!!!)

CardMaker Magazine and Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop


Hello!  Welcome to the CardMaker Magazine/Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop.  We are excited to collaborate with the CardMaker Magazine's DT for this fun event!  

You should have arrived from my good friend Heather Pulvirenti's blog.  If not, please start back over at the CardMaker Magazine blog for the full blog hop list.  Make sure to check out the bottom of my post on how to win a $35 Gift Certificate from Lil' Inker Designs!

No automatic alt text available.

Our theme is ANYTHING GOES!  This gave me the perfect opportunity to use a set that was released a while back but have fallen in love with again.....So Prickly.  I've paired it with the newly released Silly Stitched Squares Dies for some layers on my card.  One of the layers is from the coordinating So Prickly paper pack.

My cactus image was stamped with my FAVORITE inks from Fresh Ink by Impress Cards and Crafts.  (what's even better, they are having a local sale and later this weekend an on-line sale-----not to enable or anything!)  I stamped the cactus in the main color and then added shading with a darker/different color using my Misti.  My cactus was hand trimmed and added with foam adhesive.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a thin strip of black cardstock, ends trimmed into a banner, and adhered with foam adhesive.


There is a chance to win a $35 gift certificate to Lil' Inker Designs by leaving comments over on the LID blog........HERE.  Your next stop is Kat Benjamin's blog.

Fruit Stand and Avery Elle

Fruit Stand3

Hello!  I am sharing a card that can be seen over on the Avery Elle blog today using Fruit Stand.
Fruit Stand is a perfect set for creating an adorable scene for spring or summer.  I know I have many memories of visiting fruit/vegetable stands with my mom as a kid!  I paired the cute images from Fruit Stand with the Picket Fence Elle-ments.
