CAS(E) this sketch #108

This sketch is fabulous!!  I can make cards with it all day. I have a few more in the works, and will post them later.  The first one today uses paper from Basic Grey Hey Girl!  I stamped a butterfly (Flutter, a retired CTMH set) first in Cotton Candy ink, then a second generation in Orchid ink rolled in Cotton Candy to cut out.  The sentiment stamp is from a Verve set, Thoughtful Florals, stamped in Whisper ink.  A little strip of Sweet Leaf ribbon and some pearls finished it.

The second card used paper from a local craft store.  The stamp is from a delightful set from CTMH called Puns of Praise (retired), stamped in Memento Black Tuxedo and lightly colored with Copics. I used the CTMH Cricut cartridge Artiste to cut the dress form and scissors from black card stock.


Balloons and Bling

This birthday card was inspired by the Friday Mashup sketch.  For the 'mashup!' I added the two embellishments - bling and some Baker's Twine.
The balloons (from a retired CTMH set) are stamped second generation and 'ink rolled' before I cut them out, then balloon sentiment stamped in Sky ink.  I put the Bamboo card stock tag through the crimper.  Papers are from my stash.
