CTS #171 – Gorgeous Grunge

For today’s card, I participated in the CAS(E) This Sketch sketch challenge.

I started with a base of So Saffron and layered it with Whisper White.  I used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Calypso Coral to give a nice effect behind the butterfly.  The sentiment comes from the One Big Meaning Stamp Set in Calypso Coral.

The butterflies were cut in Basic Black and So Saffron, one layered over the other.

Enjoy!

I used the Botanical Blossoms Stamp Set and stamped it in VersaMark and then heat embossed it in white on some watercolor paper layered over Hello Honey.

I used Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, and Hello Honey to watercolor each over one leaf.    The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs.

I then finished the inside off heat embossing the continuation of the sentiment on the front.

Enjoy!

Garden in Bloom Sweetness

My inspiration for today’s card came from the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge this week.

CTS_166

I started with a base of Thick Whisper White.  I then used the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set (which I have to tell you I absolutely loved using) to create my design.  The bigger flowers are stamped in Blushing Bride (stamping off for lighter color), the smaller flowers are stamped in Pacific Point, and the leaves are stamped in Garden Green.  The outlines are stamped in Memento.

The sentiment, “Hope You’re Feeling Special Today,” also comes from the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set and is stamped on some vellum.  I used some Linen Thread, a pattern from English Garden DSP, and some Venetian Crochet Trim to add some texture and depth to the card.

Enjoy and Happy Tuesday!

CAS(E) This Sketch #157

My card today was inspired by the CASE(E) This Sketch challenge this week and the fact that today is a dreary, cold, damp day and I can’t help but dream of warm, sunny, days at the beach.
