First of all, can I tell you how much I enjoyed drooling all over the entries for last week’s challenge?!! You all knocked that one right outta the proverbial park! I hope that you’ll be equally inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. Lisa designed this baby, and I feel like it has so many possibilities, don’t you?!
Since next week is Thanksgiving, I felt like a “thankful” card was in order. As is almost always the case with me, I flipped and and rearranged the sketch to suit my purposes, trying desperately to keep the design as CLEAN & SIMPLE as possible (those are the rules, after all!) I stamped the flourish using watermark ink onto kraft cardstock. I then die cut the leaves out of four different colors of cardstock, wrinkled and bent them a bit (to give them that “wind blown” look) and adhered them with dimensional tape. The sentiment was stamped in brown pigment ink, and everything is “texturized” with a linen impression plate.
STAMPS: Handwritten Sentiments (Simon Says Stamps), Fancy Flourishes (PTI)
INK: Chocolate Pigment (Fresh Ink), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
PAPER: Desert Storm CS (Neenah Classic Crest), Brown Smoothie CS (Bazzill Basics Paper), Daffodil Delight CS, Pumpkin Pie CS, Kiwi Kiss CS, and Cajun Craze CS (Stampin’ Up!)
OTHER: Leaves Dies (Impression Obsession), Linen Impression Plate (PTI)
We hope that you’ll play along with this week’s sketch! Be sure and click on through to the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other ladies have created for your viewing pleasure.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’m still in Las Vegas celebrating our 32nd Wedding Anniversary (I know, can you believe my husband has put up with me for 32 years?! LOL) and my sister’s 50th birthday (even though she turned 50 last year – ha!) Somehow I agreed to go on the zipline on Fremont Street with her – pray for me! LOL
