CAS(E) this Sketch #285 - Welcome Autumn

Welcome Autumn 

I'm playing along with the CAS(E) This Sketch! Challenge again this week!

My card from the challenge last week got an honorable mention, so that was pretty cool!


Welcome Autumn 

Welcome Autumn 

I watercolored a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper with the distress oxide inks shown above. 

I used Memento in Rich Cocoa to stamp the leaves. 

Welcome Autumn 

I always love all the Fall cards that I see every year. 

I only have one stamp set that is Fall related and I always forget to pull it out.

I picked up this stamp and die set at the Rubber Stamp show I went to in July. It's from Rubbernecker Stamps. The stamp set is called Splatter Leaves and the die set to match is called Fall Leaf.

Welcome Autumn

I want to play around with some more inks to create some different colors for the leaves. 

Welcome Autumn

I really love the colors of Fall! 

The only thing I don't care for is that for me when I think of Fall I think of Winter and I'm not a big fan. I don't like having to wear coats and closed toed shoes. I want to be able to wear capris and sandals year round. I guess I grew up and live in the wrong state!

Be sure to check out the challenge this week!

Through The Purple Haze Challenge #147 Make It CAS

Thanks 

I love clean and simple cards.

Today I'm linking my card to the Through The Purple Haze Challenge #147 Make It CAS challenge.

This is a new challenge for me. I've not participated in their challenges before.

Thanks 

For this card I used Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink for my water color background.

The thanks die is from Simon Says Stamp. 

Thanks 

I use this color a lot. I love it!

Thanks 

Thanks 

This card uses Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink for the background.

After the background had dried, I laid a PaperTrey Ink stencil over my panel and spritzed it with water. 

Thanks 

I also used the same thanks die from Simon Says Stamp on this card.

Thanks

I make a lot of thank you cards. I'm not sure why, but they are one of my favorites to create along with a few others. I need a few thank you cards this fall so I'm making a pile of them so I have some many choices to choose from!

Again, this card is linked to this challenge:

CAS(E) this Sketch #284

Thanks 

I'm on a roll! I'm sharing this card that I made for the CAS(E) this Sketch #284 Challenge.


I've been hustling last night and today trying to get cards made for some challenges that are ending. 

I love participating in challenges but sometimes time is tight. 

Thanks 

I have lots of leftover pieces of cardstock that I watercolored with distress oxide inks and some die cuts to use up. I used the Honeycomb Small stencil by Dylusions for my background with hickory smoke ink.

Other products used on this card were: Sizzix Tim Holtz Garden Greens dies, Sizzix Tim Holtz Frameworks Honeycomb die and Simon Says Stamp Script Thanks Die.

Thanks 

I think this card might be one of my favorites. I know not everyone is a fan of black but I think it makes the colors pop on this card. 

Thanks
