Merry & Bright
I have used V for CheVron creative screening from Winnie & Walter and sponged Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Festive Berries and Picked Raspberry by overlapping the stencil a bit. I then drew some Chevrons using gold glitter pen. 
I die cut the reindeer using black glitter paper and adhered it at the centre of the “V” Stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Christmas Crystals. I added a red enamel dot on the reindeer’s nose 🙂

CAS(E) this Sketch #90 challenge and a farewell!

This is my third post for today. Here is my Random card post and Winnie & Walter post.

I have a new sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge blog for you today.

This fab sketch is by Chrissy Larson.
And this is how I interpreted it.
Happy Birthday Gebera vertical
 I sat down to make the card this morning. And I had planned something geometric with some inlayed diecut. But I found, Jennifer McGurie’s video today using Peerless watercolour on her blog. So I watched the video and got inspired to try the technique. I am a bit restless today and so I was not up to colouring a smaller image. Hence I choose  these large Gerbera flowers and leaves from Uniko Studio’s Pure Floral Gerbera stamp set.I have white heat embossed them on watercolour paper from Tim Holtz. Then broke open my Peerless water colour and coloured the flowers and leaves. I am intrigued by Jennifer’s use of Perfect Pearl water. I remembered I had one such pot hiding somewhere in my drawer. I found it and used it on my watercoloured flowers and leaves. Just love the shimmer it gives. Subtle and pretty. Thanks for the video, Jennifer. I love your work and your videos always and forever 🙂 Here is a close up!
Happy Birthday card closeup!
 For the background, I have used a wooden plank pattern paper from My Mind’s Eye. I mounted the watecoloured panel as per the sketch. I love the contrast the yellow and green against the woodgrain plant background. I wanted a sentiment which is not too big but subtle. So the nearest I could reach for was from MFT’s Typewriter stamp set lol! Finally few of the gorgeous Lemon Drop and Mossy Green sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!
 

Happy birthday Gebera card

Now to the sad part – saying goodbye! I am finishing my term with CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog as designer. I have been with them since the start of the challenge blog. I love CAS sketches and throughly enjoyed working with Christine and team. Fabulous group of people. Thank you so much for having me, girls 🙂 Now I think there are plenty of designers out there who are talented and worthy of being the designer on the team. So you will see a newbie fab designer on the team from next month. Yay!

Thanks for stopping by today.

CAS(E) this Sketch #89

Hey dear friends, I have a new sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge for you.
Here it is for you.
This gorgeous sketch is designed by Leigh Penner. Here is my take on the sketch.
Hello card
I have used the new Persian Motif stamp set from Altenew to create my card. I stamped the images in gold for the background. Then I diecut  a rectangle from watercolour paper using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 2 die.  I then heat embossed the same image from Persian Motifs to gold heat emboss on the watercolour paper. I then watercoloured the images using distress inks – Evergreen Bough, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick. 
Hello card horizontal
I really love the gold, aqua and coral colour combo. I wanted a bit more coral colour so I used Pretty Pink Posh’s Tangerine  4mm and 6mm sequins to embellish. The sentiment is from Quilled Elegance stamp set from Altenew. Hope my card inspires you to participate in CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. Here is a closeup.

CAS(E) this Sketch #88

This is my second post for today. My CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop is HERE.

Welcome to a new CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.
This sketch is designed by our design team member Donna Mikasa. Perfect CAS sketch I think. Add a technique or two gives the card a big impact. Love it.
Here is my take on the challenge.
Happy Birthday balloon card

I flipped the sketch vertically. I have used balloon dies from Simon Says Stamps. I used distress inks – Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar and Evergreen Bough to get the colour wash on those balloons. I swiped the inks on my craft mat, spritz some water then dabbed water colour paper on it. Dried the paper using heat gun, dabbed again to get some intense colour and layer. Once dry, I die cut the balloons. I have layered the balloons as per the elements on the sketch. The sentiment is from Birthday Sentiment also from Simon Says Stamp which I stamped on a strip of white cardstock, cut an angle and adhered using foam adhesive. Finally scattered and glued some gorgeous gorgeous sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Here is a closeup.

CAS(E) this Sketch, Reverse Confetti, Tag You're it Challenge

Tag You’re It Challenge meets CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge

This is my second post. Here is my CASE Study post.

Hello dear crafty friends,

Today I have a special post where CAS(E) this Sketch challenge is collaborating with Tag You’re It challenge. This is very special to me for two reasons: First, I am a design team member for CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog and Tag You’re It Challenge. Secondly, it is my sketch that is been used today for both the challenges. I am one happy and lucky girl!
So here is the sketch for you from both CAS(E) this Sketch and Tag You’re It challenges.

   
I love this sketch. There is so many technique you can use on the diagonal pattern element. Similarly, the other elements on this sketch. Here is what I did with the sketch.

Happy Bird-day card and tag
I made a card and coordinating tag using the sketch for the challenges. I have used the new release Reverse Confetti stamp set called Fabulous Flamingo and its coordinating dies. I love love flamingos. These are so adorable. I have also used the Tag Me die from Reverse Confetti for the tag and the one on the card as well. The sentiment is stamped on the banner die also from Tag Me die set. The pattern paper came in a Studio Calico card kit from last year. Finally those beautiful sequins is from Pretty Pink Posh.
Here is the tag by itself for Tag You’re It challenge.

Bird-day tag

I die cut the tag twice, one using the textured cardstock and one using the pattern paper. I trimmed it, layered and glued. I die cut the flamingos in watercolour paper and colour washed it with Worn Lipstick distress ink. The layered piece of flamingo is die cut using pink glitter paper. I have added googly eyes to add some fun. Finally, accented with 6mm and 4mm Sparkly Clear, Pink Blush and Peonies sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Here is the coordinating card for CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

Happy Bird-day!
I did exactly the same process on the card except it is a card. To make the flamingos pop, I added a beautiful yellow colour washed tag on the background. I added a pink hemp to the tag and also glued it to position.  Apart from the beautiful 4mm and 6mm Sparkly Clear and Pink Blush sequins, I added some silver heart confetti also from Pretty Pink Posh.

It is you turn to play along. Head over to CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog and Tag You’re It Challenge Blog to see what the other designers did with the sketch and tag. You can also find the linkies to link your project at the blogs.

CAS(E) this Sketch #86

This is my fourth post for today. Here are my Runway Inspired Challenge post, CASE Study post, Premiering V for CheVron stamp set from Winnie & Walter post.

Welcome back! On Thursdays, we from CAS(E) this Sketch bring you a new sketch. This is the new sketch for this week designed by Sam Simpson.

Fabulous CAS sketch. I had my PTI Make it Market: Beautiful Brush Strokes kit arrive in the mail. So I played with the stamp sets and papers that came with the kit using this sketch.
Thanks card
I took the sketch literally but instead of the hexagon and bee, I decided to use flowers and leaves. I stamped the flowers and leaves, diecut them and clustered them together. I have used the blue colourwash pattern paper from the paper pad in the kit. Trimmed a strip of the black and white polka dot paper which I glued to the card front. I adhered the cluster using foam adhesives, diecut the frame, stamped the sentiment and glued as shown. Finally adhered the clear dew drops. 
Thanks

CAS(E) this Sketch #85

Second post for today. I always have two post of Thursdays. My first post is from CASE Study Challenge #200. And this is my CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge post. I have a new sketch for you today.

The sketch is so versatile and the best part it they are designed by CAS(E) this Sketch design team member N@ Ali. This is why I love CAS(E) this Sketch sketches. Agree with me? lol!

Here is my take on the sketch.

Hey friend card
I have used the stamp set from Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit to make my card for the sketch. I love the stamp set that came in the kit. The scribbled flowers and leaves are my favourite. I white heat embossed the flowers and leaves on watercolour paper. They used distress inks Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries to colour the flowers and Crushed Olives and Shabby Shutters to colour the leaves. I then cut them out and clustered them on the white cardstock panel. I also stamped the curly tendrils using Fog Simon Says Stamp ink. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set stamped in black. Well, what will I do without Pretty Pink Posh’s gorgeous sequins? lol! Here I have used Mossy Green, Pink Peonies and Raspberry 6mm sequins on my card. You can find all the pretty sequins at Pretty Pink Posh shop and at Simon Says Stamp Shop.

Hey, it is me again! This is my second post for today, Here is my CASE Study post.

I have a new sketch for you from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge blog.
This new sketch is by Chrissy Larson.

This is my take on the sketch.
Celebrate
I used Magnolias For Her stamp set from Altenew to stamp and watercolour the flowers. I have used watercolour paper, masked off a strip for stamping the sentiment, then stamped the flowers using Archival black ink. Then I have used Dusty Concord and Salty Ocean to colour the flowers. Then Mustard Seed distress ink to colour the stamen and also to colour wash the outside of the flowers. This adds depth to the flowers. Once dry, I removed the mask, stamped the sentiment from Super Script stamp set. I have added some shimmer to the sentiment as well as the flowers using Wink of Stella clear pen.
