CAS(E) this Sketch #86

Hello people! I am hoping you all had a restful weekend. I know it is back to work for most of you. I am still on vacation but the time is going by so fast that I will be back to work before I know it.

Today I am posting two cards the I created for CAS(E) this sketch Challenge blog and playing along with sketch #86.

For these two cards, I literally challenged myself to use what was on my desk. I do not have a photo of my work area as it has been raining but my desk is covered in product, as well as stamped images that I have colored in using Copic markers.

My first card has a cup cake as its focal point.

This stamp is a My Favorite Things stamp. I layered it over a doily die cut from the same company and a stamped die cut from Paper Trey Ink.

I used foam adhesive to give the cup cake a bit of dimension and adhered a few shades of green sequins around the focal point of the card.

My last step was to use a clear Wink of Stella pen to give a little sparkle and shine to the top of the cup cake.

My second card I used a similar concept but used a present stamp as the focal point.

The die cut scallop is a Lawn Fawn die and the paper is from Bo Bunny.

The sentiment is a Paper Trey Ink stamp.

Like the first card, the last step was to use a Wink of Stella pen to give the present some shine.

Here is the sketch that I used to jumpstart these cards.

I really love how both of these projects came out and am going to file this sketch away to use for future designs. It was really easy and very versatile. I also think I am going to start making more then one card at a time when I am creating for these challenges. I will have more cards to choose from in my stash!!

I thank you for stopping by today. Have a great night!!
