Case This Sketch 155 and Merry Monday187

WHERE has the time gone!  I had no idea it had been so long since I last posted!  I've been busy...oh, so busy....made LOTS of cards, but never seem to get around to posting them!  I have a couple of cards to show you today that I made for the CTS #155 challenge and one for the Merry Monday #187 challenge.

First's my cards for the CTS challenge.  I have totally CASEd Hannelie's card.  Seriously, isn't it the best card EVER!  I have a Cameo and I just need to use it more often! Thanks for the inspiration, Hannelie!  Since I had to cut it twice to get the two different colors...what's better than to make two cards reversing the pattern!  Score 2 for 1!!

This next card is my contribution for the Merry Monday challenge this week which is to make a card with plaid on it.

I made my plaid with red, green, and gold inks and the SSS stripes stamps.  I think the gold is a little to prominent, but overall, I'm pleased.  I masked off the upper portion of the card base and stamped my plaid across the bottom.  I removed the mask, inked up a strip of white card stock with some of the Delicata Gold ink and added it where the plaid and white meet.  I stamped the sentiment in black and heat embossed it in clear.  The holly leaves and berries are a die that I've had forever and I have no idea who made it - probably Quikkutzs.

I have several additional cards to share with you also, but I'll create another post for those.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...

Pin It!
