Another for CASe this Sketch 231

Hello Everyone,
Yup, I have another one for this weeks CASe this Sketch! I sort of turned the sketch on its side for this card. Here it is...
Can I just say that I LOVE this little chef - he is so stinking cute. He is from MFT's Recipe for Happiness - so is the sentiment. The heart background is made with MFT's nesting hearts dies and their brick wall stencil. I have some sheets of stencil plastic (bought it at the local craft store) and made a heart stencil with the dies. I put brick wall stencil under the heart stencil and sponged with MFT's Razzleberry Fizz dye ink. I coloured my chef copics and popped him up on foam. Love the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by; feel free to leave some feedback as I always love to hear from you!

Happy Stamping,

CASe This Sketch 231

Hello Everyone,
Here is the latest sketch over at the CASe this Sketch blog. I bought some new foils and some new microfine glitter and decided to put them to good use. Here is the card I created.
I used an old set of nesting dies from spellbinders to create my glittery background. It is hard to capture the glitterificness of these colours in the photo - you will just have to trust me. The butterfly is a Memory Box die and I cut it out of toner paper and foiled it with Gina K silver confetti foil - you can see it picks up on the colours around it. I felt the simple white "Hi" went perfectly - it is from Paper Smooches.

A Couple More for Muse!

Hello Everyone,
This is the wonderful Muse inspiration card this week. I already posted an entry (scroll down to previous post), but this wonderful card just kept inspiring. Here is what I came up with:

The first card uses two Neat and Tangled sets: On the Strip and Out of the Box. I used some new Altenew inks - I have wanted to try them out for awhile and LOVE them. The Blues are from the Glacier Caves set. They stamp so crisply and cleanly.

The second card uses the same two sets from Neat and Tangled and an MFT Hello die. This time I used three reds from the Altenew Red Cosmos inks - again I LOVE these inks!

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave some feedback!

Muse and CASology "Wish"

Hello Everyone,
It has been awhile - I have been crafting, but life has been a little busy and I just haven't been able to post. When I saw this wonderful inspiration card over at Muse, I knew I had to play along. I also checked out CASology to see what the cue card was for this week - here it is:
I remembered my Neat and Tangled stamp set Everyday Circles and came up with this simple card:
I adopted the rainbow coloured shapes with the imbedded "happy" greeting to mirror Tracy's coloured shapes with the camouflage "Hello". Adding the Birthday sentiment in bold black fits with CASology challenge making it a birthday wish!

While I was at it another idea popped into my head which is a more direct case of the Muse inspiration card. Here it is - it uses the Avery Elle "Rounded Diamnonds" set and a PTI Hugs die:
Of course I had to add a touch of Wink of Stella to the Hugs!

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave some feedback - I always love to hear what you think!

Happy Stamping,
Meg

CASe This Sketch and Muse

Happy New Year Everyone,
Today I am playing along with CASe this Sketch and Muse. Above is the sketch for this week and below is the inspiration card from Muse:
You can see that the layout is quite similar. I was inspired by the sentiment mounted into the geometric circle, but offset my sentiment to fit the sketch. I also used camouflage inlay technique for my hugs sentiment (PTI Big Hugs dies). 
I bought some stencil sheets at a local stamp store and made my own heart stencil with MFT Heart Stax. I sponged the larger heart using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and then sponged the smaller heart inside with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink. I popped the Hugs up on four die cuts to give it dimension and topped it off with a bit of clear Wink of Stella.

 I love the simplicity of this card. Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment!

Happy Stamping,
Meg
