CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #29–Sketch!


Hey Friends!!

CFC29 Graphic

I’m back today to once again share this week’s CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #29, which is a fabulous sketch created by Karen Baker!  I adore sketches because they typically spark my waning creativity.

Trade Fish Designs

This week’s sponsor is Trade Fish Designs, and they not only provided a super prize for this week’s TGIF Club Winner (hop over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is!), but they also shared some of their fabulous stamps with the Girl Fridays.  Fun stuff, I tell ya!!  Be sure and check out all the incredible inspiration that the other Girl Fridays have in store for you over at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog.

CFC29 - Happy Holidays

Seriously, when you have a sketch and the product in hand, the cards practically make themselves!!  I got to work with the Holiday Mix clear stamp set, one of their brand spankin’ new releases.  I chose the hanging ornaments, and stamped them in black ink and heat embossed them with black embossing powder.  I love the effect of black and white with the other bright colors, don’t you?  I also heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.


STAMPS:  Holiday Mix (Trade Fish Designs)
INK:  VersaMark (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Snow CS (Bazzill), Simply Chartreuse and Berry Sorbet CS (PTI)
ACCESSORIES:  Self-Adhesive Rhinestones (Stampin’ Up!), Square Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Black and White Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts), Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!)


So, I can’t wait to see what you all come up with for this week’s challenge!  Your projects always inspire me.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend!

Oh, LOVE the pink and green!!! And love the use of black and white for the main panel--it's fabulously striking against the vibrant colors! :)
