CAS(E) this Sketch #219


Teammie Jen brings us CAS(E) this Sketch #219.


Oooh, I love a simple sketch! Here's my take on it.


Why yes, there's been a flurry of butterflies on my cards lately. Truth is, I have a ton
of butterflies ink distressed and waiting to flutter onto a card. Whimsical Woodgrain
was stamped on a Stone Gray card base, and the sentiment banner and butterfly
were adhered over it. Done!

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the design team interpreted the
sketch and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, May 4th and
as the winner you could be our next guest designer!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #330



Here's this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge #330.


And here's how I interpreted the sketch.


The circle element was replaced with a butterfly. I added a strip of
patterned paper, and stamped the sentiment on a label tag. Enamel dots
finished off the card.

Visit the Card Challenges blog for more inspiration, and for all the details
on the challenge. The random winner will receive up to a $20 MFT voucher!
Hope to see you in the gallery!

CASology Guest Designer


http://casology.blogspot.com/2017/04/week-246-season.html

I'm guesting for this week's CASology challenge, since my ICING card
was chosen as the weekly winner! Here's this week's cue word.

http://casology.blogspot.com/2017/04/week-246-season.html

And here's how I interpreted the word--with springtime butterflies.


I ink distressed three butterflies and adhered them to the card, leaving
as much white space as possible. I adhered the label sentiment, a few sequins,
and finished the card by rounding off the bottom left corner. 

We hope you'll join this week's challenge and share your interpretation of the 
cue word. You have until Monday, May 1st at 12PM CST to link up your card.
And big thanks to Melissa and the CASology girls for having me as a guest!

MFT April Creative Construction with Blueprints--Come As You Are



Mixing and matching Blueprints elements is such an appealing way of creating 
something new and exciting. Every new Blueprints release includes a quartet of 
sketches featuring the elements. Join our team this month as they interpret 
Blueprints sketches and make them their own.

 For my project, I chose to work with Blueprints 26.



My card is loosely based on a combination of the first and fourth sketches.


The grassy hill was formed with the largest balloon element. After ink distressing
the balloon, I covered up the "neck" portion with the koalas and adhered the
smaller balloon that was ink distressed with Distress Oxide inks. 

Three little birds were adhered to the card, and the sentiment was white 
embossed on the hill. I finished off the card by rounding off the bottom corners.

Visit today's post at My Favorite Things to see how the rest of the Creative
 Team took on the Blueprints challenge!
