CAS(E) this Sketch #103

CAS(E) this Sketch #103

Loved this sketch challenge from CAS(E) this Sketch! I know I'll be using it over and over. I already have some other cards earmarked to create using it. 

My card uses PaperTrey Ink cardstock for the base in Pure Poppy. I love their cardstock. It's so perfect for cards! The patterned paper is from Craft Smith called Timeless Holiday. I picked this up at Michael's and I love the patterns that are included in the pack. I love it so much I bought a second pad thinking I might make a mini album with it. I used a Hero Arts sentiment from the clear set called Very Merry Christmas. Gems are metal stickers from Mark Richards. 


Be sure to stop by and check out all the other great cards using this sketch!

Simon Says Bling It On! - Simon Wednesday Challenge

Simon Says Bling It On! - Simon Wednesday Challenge


I created this card yesterday from some scraps I had on my table. I saw a Facebook post that Simon Says Stamps had a "Bling It On!" challenge going on right now. They are showcasing Kaisercraft products this week. While they would love for you to use their products, this card unfortunately doesn't use any. However you can still join the challenge and since this was spur of the moment and it has bling, I decided to go for it.

Products used for this card: PaperTrey Ink in Vintage Cream for the base, Memory Box Claremont Ornaments Die, Mark Richards Metal Sticker Gems in Gold Metal Metallique, Recollections Christmas Noel Glitter Paper, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mini Holidays Stamp Set, Stampendous Jeweled Gold Embossing Powder.

Be sure to stop by their blog and see all the gorgeous cards using bling! Thanks for stopping by!

CAS - Colours and Sketches: Christmas Sketch Challenge #104

CAS - Colours and Sketches: Christmas Sketch Challenge #104

My card today is for the CAS - Colours and Sketches Blog: Christmas Sketch Challenge #104. The challenge is to pick a sketch from their previous sketches in the archive. The one I chose is below. It's from sketch #31 from June 27th, 2013.

I decided to go with a snowflake theme for my card. I used an embossing folder by Provo Craft for Cuttlebug called Snowflakes. The very cool rustic snowflakes are from Favorite Findings. The Christmas sentiment I chose is from Hero Arts called Celebrate Everyday. I used the Cork Solids DCWV as a mat for my snowflake background. Inked edges and ink for sentiment is Memento's Lady Bug and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Barn Door. Card base is White and Kraft from PaperTrey Ink. Metal Stickers by Mark Richards. I do LOVE those wood snowflakes!
