CASology 5-Year Anniversary

CASology is having a blog hop and giveaways for their 5th Anniversary.  Here is a link if you want to do the bloghop. Click here

The challenge is a card featuring balloons.  I adore these stamp sets from Ellen Hutson Essentials and made this card for the challenge.


Stamp sets used are All Inside and  Bear Wear.  I used copics to color.  After coloring the balloon I applied glossy accents  for some shine.

 Thanks for stopping by, see  you soon.......

CAS(E) this Sketch #229

I have been making a lot of cards lately, just haven't had time to post them to this blog! :)    I decided to enter the CAS(E) this Sketch #229 challenge this week.



I watercolored the background using Distress Inks.  I just smooshed ink onto my craft sheet, spritzed it with water and then laid the watercolor paper over the ink and moved it around.  I like the results a lot. I used an SSS die, that I have had for a few years but I love this die for all the possibilities it has.  I die cut a bunch of circles from different patterned papers using the die and then inlaid them inside the die frame.  I stamped the sentiment with an Avery Elle stamp set, Shine Bright Clear.  I love this stamp set and have used it a lot so far this summer.

Here is the sketch:
