CAS(e) this sketch #242

Hi there!

Time for your weekly sketch inspiration at CAS(e) this sketch !

Thanks Leigh for this inspiring sketch!

I fell in love with this beautiful rose stamp from Altenew the moment I saw it. I seldom say : "I have to have this stamp" but I said it... and ordered it right away! And now I have a new favorite stamp. Can't wait to see it in all the colors of the rainbow!

Of course I tried it first in my favorite  yellow! One thing I love about the Altenew inks is the velvety texture, especially with the layered stamping.

Birthday wishes

Hi there!

It's Monday and I want to wish you a wonderful new week!

Let's start the week with a big-bold-bloom-birthday-wishes-card , inspired by some challenges :)

I used:

  • Two stencils cut with my silhouette cameo.
  • Birthday sentiment cut with my cameo Design ID #46490.
  • 'Wishes' stamp from Happy Little stampers.
  • Spiced marmalade & Picked raspberry distress inks.

It's not so visible as I hoped it would be... but I inked two 2 layers... first in Spiced Marmalade, then a second layer of Picked Raspberry. I think the last close up picture shows it off the best.


Inspired by all the little things   ~ Photo inspiration.

CAS mix up  ~ Stencil layering, stamping, die cut.

Just us girls ~ Word dies.

Seize the birthday  ~ No toppings.

CASology : Fortune

Hi there!

CASology time again! I am so excited to see how our cue will inspire your designs this week!


I made a card inspired by the wheel of fortune!

When you don't have any stamps available for a specific theme, you have to improvise!

My card is a combination of digital and 'traditional' stamping and coloring.

I created the wheel and 'you are' part of the sentiment in the Silhouette studio, colored each segment of the wheel with distress ink, and stamped the small words in each segment using sentiment stamps from the 'Truth is' set by Cas-ual fridays stamps, stamped with Versafine black ink.

The wheel is attached to the card with a brad and it really spins!

A couple of enamel dots to finish off the card.

No matter where the wheel stops , the recipient will feel special... and that is what we as card makers aim to do, don't we?!
