CAS Colours & Sketches #298 - Sketch

Hey!

This month at CAS Colours & Sketches our hostess is Patricia, the challenge owner.  This week is sketch week HERE and seen below...




Such a super CAS sketch and this is how I decided to use it...




I recently purchased some white stencil embossing medium and wanted to try a white on white effect with the Uniko Stylised Floral Stencil. (Apologies for the poor photos, the light was terrible today).




I embellished the design with some large enamel dots and added a sentiment from So Much. I thought the white on white design would look more CAS than it does, but I didn't have time to create a new design.

That's all from me today, I hope thatI have inspired you to join in on the challenge?! If you need a little more inspiration, pop on over HERE to see what the CC&S Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by!

CAS Colours & Sketches #297 - Colours

Hello November!

This month at CAS Colours & Sketches our hostess is Patricia, the challenge owner.  As usual we are starting the month off with a colour challenge and HERE are this weeks colours...




Another beautiful colour combo and it made me think of pretty Cosmos flowers, so this is what I made...




I've kept this card really simple. The flowers from Pure Florals: Cosmos are stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then I used Stampin' Up! markers to colour my Cosmos flowers. I substituted Balmy Blue for Soft Sky because it was the closest blue I had. I've not purchased the new colour markers yet :( 




I adhered this stamped and coloured panel to a piece of So Saffron card, wrapped some white bakers twine around and tied in a bow. This is adhered to the card base using foam adhesive.

That's all from me today, I hope thatI have inspired you to join in on the challenge?! If you need a little more inspiration, pop on over HERE to see what the CC&S Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by!

CAS Colours & Sketches #296 - The Double!

* CLICK HERE for the Uniko October Reveal, DT Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY post *


Hey!

This week over at CAS Colour & Sketches is Timeless Tuesday, AKA The Double! It is a multiple hostess for October and Karen and Patricia came up with this sketch and colour combo seen HERE and below, to inspire your card making...




And this is how I have combined the two...




Still trying to get a stash of Christmas cards made, I opted to use Winter Foliage. This is one of my 'go to' clear stamp sets for Holiday and Winter themed cards. The Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple colours seemed appropriate for the foliage and berries too. 




I then just needed to incorporate the Midnight Muse into my design and did this by using it as my focal panel mat. I added some plain white bakers twine and a sentiment from Simply Said II.

Anyway, the CC&S Design Team have created more awesome inspiration to share with you, so hop on over HERE to see and also find all the challenge details & link up!

Thanks for stopping by today!
