I cut the new Merry Christmas 2 Die using some festive-color cardstock and filled the negative spaces to create the focal point. This took some time, but it was quite therapeutic. =)

CAS(E) This Sketch #241

Hello, all! =) A new sketch is up over on CAS(E) This Sketch! Here is this week's sketch.


Here is my take on it.


I had to play with those critter stamps that I just got! =)


The bunny and little bear are from Waffle Flower's Popping In set and the large bear is from the Bear & Bird set. They are stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink on PTI's Rustic White cardstock then colored with Copic markers. I fussy cut my images out, but there are matching dies to those stamp sets if you are not a fan of fussy cutting.


The patterned paper is from Dear Lizzy Saturday 6x6 paper pad by American Crafts and the sentiment is cut using Essentials by Ellen's Brushstroke Hello die.

That's all for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over on CAS(E) This Sketch! =)

Have a sweet day and thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Hello

Hiya, all! =) Here is a card that I made using some fun dies from Paper Smooches.


With all those shapes, the possibilities are endless! =)


I cut the colorful shapes using the Halloween Card Dies. Instead of making a Halloween card, I tried to use them in a way that makes this die set be an all occasion set.


The sentiment is cut using the super versatile Hello Words set.

That's all for now. For more inspirations using stamps and dies from Paper Smooches, please visit the Paper Smooches Blog! =)

Monsters & Halloween Sampler

Hi ya, all! =) Here is a card that I made using some fun stamps and dies from Paper Smooches.


These are probably some of the most iconic monster designs that Kim has in her collection and now they are dies! You can create your own versions of them at will! =)


I cut mine out using the Monster Dies with plain cardstock and colored them with Copic markers.


The background is created by cutting the accessary pieces with plain paper and colored with Copic markers as well. The sentiment is from the Halloween Sampler set.

CAS(E) This Sketch #239

Hello, all! =) A new sketch is up over on CAS(E) This Sketch. Here is this week's sketch.


Here is my take on it.


Instead of making a horizontal card, I used the sketch for a vertical card and sort of used the image as the rectangle in the sketch. Hope I am making sense here! =)


The adorable image is called The Squidgy on A Journey from Stamping Bella. It's stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored with Copic markers on the Rustic White card front.


The sentiment comes with little Squidgy and is stamped on a strip of vellum.

That's all for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over on CAS(E) This Sketch! =)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
