CAS(E) this Sketch #235

I love this week's sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! 

I'm updating this post because I'm linking my card to the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #78 too! I always check their challenges but somehow missed this one and my card fits in perfectly.

When I opened my email this afternoon and saw this sketch I couldn't wait to get home and create my card. I knew exactly what I was going to use! I have a ton of scraps that I have cut off the ends of panels I've used for other cards. I knew they'd be perfect!

I like that this is such a simple design. Less is more and I'm really starting to love making CAS cards more and more.


Distress oxide inks were used on the original card panels that I cut the strips from. Since these were in my scrap pile, I don't remember what colors I used. 


The sentiment used on this card is from Simon Says Stamp.


Because I loved the sketch so much and I had the scraps, I decided to make a second card.


The sentiment on this card is from Plus9.

Be sure to stop by the CAS(E) this Sketch blog. Their Design Team created some beautiful cards!

A Birthday Hello


Today's card is for the Simply Create Too Challenge - Use Flowers. I made some panels this past  weekend using the large flower stencil from Hero Arts. For the color I used Brusho Crystal Colours and I love how bright and cheery this turned out! The sentiment is from WPlus9 and the word die is from Echo Park. All supplies are listed below. 


I die cut the word three times and adhered it together for dimension.

I created this card for two different challenges that I am linking to. The challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch #234 is a sketch challenge (sketch is below). It's a great sketch!

For the second challenge over at CAS Watercolor Card Challenge, salt is added to the wet watercolor. I've done this technique before and I love the results!

I used three different colors of Kuretake Gansi Tambi on my card panel. While my panel was drying I accidentally got another panel with blue a little too close. There's a tiny bit of blue mixed at the bottom. All supplies are listed below.  For the salt I used table salt and water softener salt. The die is from Sizzix. It's Scribbles & Splat, a Tim Holtz Alterations die. Simon Says Stamp makes the sentiment that I used.
