CAS(E) this sketch # 178

When your inspiration is flushed 
down the sink it's always a good thing
 to start with a sketch :)
So I made a card using the current sketch 

And took it literally. 
 I like CAS and this is very CAS.
 With only a few details;
 I guess that's my style. 

I used the Monthly Moments mini slide
 frame dies and one of the Ombre Builder
 stamps from Papertrey Ink.
 I also used my Misti for the first time; 
it really is incredible! 

It's warm and sunny here; 
and the weather forecast 
for the weekend is great. 
I hope you have a great weekend too!

City Crafter #317

Hello and good morning!

It's my turn to host this weeks' 
challenge at the City Crafter
I choose the theme:
"White and bright"


Create a card or project using lots of white and
 add an element or elements from the photo. 
For example; gingham or striped patterns, or a
 color such as blue, grey, pink etc.

I added a bit of watercoloring, 
heatembossing and kept it quite simple: 

A simple flower on a pale pink background.
At first I used a gold embossingpowder 
but the result was a bit kitsch-y :)
So I made another one with white;
hard to see but in real it looks great! 

We are having Sid

Yesterday I attended a workshop handlettering
 with Ellen, Inge and Sandra
Mariken had to cancel the workshop 
due to sad circumstances.
The company of these three was great
 but the workshop was a bit disappointing; 
we paid too much and got less...
But we're lucky to have You Tube; 
we will work it out at home:)

I needed a card to thank a sweet friend.
At the moment I have a lack of inspiration..
Finally I came up with blue, stripes and
a handlettering stamp:

A sequin to add a bit of bling and some hemp cord.
CAS in my favorite colors:)

Thanks for stopping by!

I choose sand. And a kite:)

All the dies and stamps I used 
on this card are from Lawn Fawn.

City Crafter #315


It´s Tuesday and that means 
that we have a new challenge for you 
  at the City Crafter Challenge
Today Kirsty is our host
 and she picked the theme:
"City Scene"
And asks us to create a project and
 include a city scene or a symbol of a city:


And again I made a card with a bit of help
 from my dear friend Ros.
While I was in Liverpool Ros 
offered me to use her skyline die.
Back home I knew exactly how to use it.
It all came together for this challenge:

 Spritzed paper (also made in Liverpool!) as a background;
creating a sort of sky filled with snow:)
I added a sentiment for a Christmas card and
that little wooden star is the finishing touch:

We are having Ellen
as our Guest Designer; 
Ellen is a Spotlight Artist from 
our birthday anniversary back in April.
Ellen has a fab CAS style and she's
 often a source of inspiration for me.
You can see more of her
 lovely cards on her blog! 

Looking for the projects of the 
other DT members and Ellen? 
You can find them on our blog.
Maybe you will be our Guest Designer soon!
