CAS(E) This Sketch #13–Cup of Thanks!


Hola Friends!

CTS13 Graphic

Two posts in one day – holy schnykies!!  LOL  I’m back with my sample for the latest and greatest CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.  Jackie was kind enough to invite me to create some sketches for you all, and of course I jumped at that opportunity!  I loves me a great sketch to jump start my creativity!

CTS13 - Cup of Thanks

So, as is almost always the case, I took a few design liberties with this sketch.  I wanted to make that focal panel into something a little more “unexpected,” which is what I truly love about sketch challenges.  I see what I see – you might see something else!  LOL  In this particular case, I saw a delicious cuppa joe.  I die cut the cup image using my Silhouette Cameo.  The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Stamps set called Cyber Caféé.  The rest of the supplies I used are listed below.

STAMPS:  Cyber Café (Paper Smooches Stamps), Coffee Beans (Gourmet Rubber Stamps)
Unicorn Pigment Ink (Memories/Hero Arts)
CARDSTOCK:  Strawberry Orange Peel CS (Bazzill Basics Paper),
White Linen CS (Essentials By Ellen)
OTHER:  Coffee Cup Cutting File (Silhouette Online Store, Design #37700), Hawaiian Shores Felt (PTI), Caribbean and Pink Sorbet Baker’s Twine (The Twinery), Heart Trio Die (A Muse Studio), Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine (Silhouette America)


I so hope you’ll play along with this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge – we’d love to see what you come up with!  Be sure and click on through to the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge Blog to see what my amazing teammates have created for your viewing pleasure and inspiration.  You can link up your projects there, too.
