CAS(E) This Sketch Guest!


Happy news, crafty friends! A week and a half ago, I found out I won the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #39 for this card. So cool, as I don't consider clean-and-simple my strong suit, not by a long shot. Maybe I'm getting the hang of it? If so, props to Reverse Confetti for stamps that lend themselves so well to that style!

A major perk for the win is that I get to be guest designer for this week's challenge, #42!

Here's the new sketch:



For my take, I pulled out Reverse Confetti's I LIKE YOU and WHOLE LOTTA DOTS sets.




I stamped a heart die-cut with the large circle background from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS using white ink, then stamped the "i like you" sentiment on top in black. I attached the card stock heart to a vellum heart and accented with a paper flower and some string. For that horizontal background strip on the sketch, I went with a few horizontal rows of messy machine stitching. On the background panel, some mist and a few enamel dots for interest.


Be sure to head over to the CAS(E) this Sketch blog for loads more inspiration from their super talented design team. When you're ready to play, the linking tool is there, too. I'm looking forward to seeing all the entries this week!








Paper: Papertrey Rustic White card stock, Stampin' Up Sahara Sand card stock, vellum card stock

Ink: black and white pigment inks, Pumice Stone Distress Ink

Accessories: linen string, Verve heart die-cut, sewing machine, Mister Huey mist, foam adhesive, enamel dots, paper flower
