CAS(e) this sketch #178

Hi there!

Do you need some sketch inspiration? Look no further than the wonderful sketch by N@Ali at CAS(e) this sketch this week!


My take on the sketch... really literal , didn't try anything clever , because I thought the little heart looked just right in that square frame!



The heart shape filled with smiley faces is a design from the Silhouette online store (#118397)
I added a Polaroid frame which I designed in the Silhouette studio, and added a tiny punched heart from kraft card stock to finish off the design.

I colored the tiny hearts with a fine point marker.

The font I used for the sentiment is called Lobster Two.




Thanks for visiting me today!

Hope to see you join us at CTS this week!

CASology : Congratulations

Hi there!

It's CASology time!

The new card is:

                                                            

I was thinking of all kinds of words and ways to congratulate someone, and came up with this card:


High five CAS card

A closer look:

We are sponsored this week by Stamplorations, and I was so lucky to receive the Artsy-Border-Maker from Shery to make my card this week!

I stamped one of the border stamps several times with Picked Raspberry distress ink to create the BG for my Silhouette cut sentiment.

While I was trying to come up with an interesting way to congratulate someone, I typed the 2 words high five with the two "i's" lining up, and it just didn't look right. So I decided to remove the one "i" and stretch the remaining "i" to fill the space of both "i's" !

I think the tall "i" plays with the feeling of 'high' ... or well, that's just the way I think!

I saved it in printable form, and you are welcome to download and use it on your projects!





My teammates also created wonderful cards to inspire you:

A closer look:

celebrate - penny black dahlia


I stamped the larger and smaller Penny Black dahlias on the card base with Versafine onyx black ink and framed it with a die cut frame from memory Box dies.

I scribbled color with with Zig Markers on a piece of acetate and spritzed it with water. I just gave the frame a quick swoosh trough the paint, allowed it to dry and then adhered it to the card base.

I added the Silhouette cut sentiment ( #50178)  and a couple of sequins to complete the card.

Please join us this week for this special occasion!

CAS(e) this sketch #177

Hi there!

This is my last "live" blog post for the next 3 weeks... you will see my Design Team posts popping up in your reader... all scheduled, while I am taking a break and breathing in the crisp Winter's air of South-Africa!

So let's take a look at this week's CAS(e) this sketch !



I found a sketched design in the Silhouette online store which I thought will be a great fit for Leigh's sketch this week:



The flourish is so beautiful on its own, all I had to do was to decide how to crop and position it, add a sentiment, and finish it off with different shades of red/pink pearls.



Design ID #73046

Name of the font I used for the sentiment : Coventry Garden.

Check out the CTS blog for more wonderful inspiration from my teammates!

Hope to see you play along ;)

Rainbow Rose !

Hi there!

I have been fascinated by rainbow roses ever since the first time I saw one, just take a look at THIS PIN on my Pinterest board FLOWERS !

There's something magic about them!

So... I made a card... with a rainbow rose.

One bright and bold, and one with soft pastels.  I prefer the pastel version this time, strange, because I  usually love working with bright bold colors!

soft...

& bold...

Because of the graphic look of the rose, I just enjoyed coloring them with my Promarkers, not too worried about trying to achieve any real shading (my kind of coloring ;)

The rose is a from an online coloring page ( sorry I don't have the link available )

I added a sentiment from Miss Kate Cuttables.

Design work done in the Silhouette studio, and of course , the cutting done with my Silhouette cameo.

Hi there !

It's CASOLOGY time, and the new cue card is:


                                                              


I have a super duper CAS card to share with you:

A close up to show the dimension:

Clean and simple Father's day card


I played around in the Silhouette studio to come up with the design.

I cropped a tie shape from diagonal stripes to get the main image, cut 4 layers for dimension, and glued them all together with a top patterned layer.

A simple Afrikaans sentiment saying : Happy Father's day.

Splatters ... and a flower!

Hi there!

Just a quick post with a card I made for the one layer Splatter challenge at Less is more  and the Floral challenge at CAS-ual fridays.






The flower is a design from Hero arts, obtained from the Silhouette online store ( #24641).

I added my own sentiment and sponged 3 colors distress inks over the printed flower using a stencil that was cut with my Silhouette.

I started at the top with picked raspberry, spiced marmalade for the middle part and ended at the bottom with mustard seed.

The sentiment:
