Can You Case It #126, A Die Challenge

Hello there!  This week at Can You Case It, we are having a challenge with a bit of a twist.  Hint: dies.  Go and grab them; you know you have them and some just so happen to be your favorite.  Here are my favorites:

Yes two Tim Holtz/Sizzix Dies.  The dress form die is called sewing room and the birdcage die is called caged bird.  Both stamps are from Unity Stamp Co.  The floral background is called pixie sprigs.  This stamp is really huge.  The sentiment comes from the August 2015 SMAK, a little bit more.  Pattern paper is from GCD Studios and it is called blue floral.  The light blue part of the paper is flocked, which adds nice texture.

Here is the inspiration for this week's challenge:

I can't wait to see your favorite dies.

Until next time,

Can You Case It #124, A Sketch Challenge

Hey there everyone!  Sorry I was not around last week.  My youngest son had surgery for a displaced patella.  He is recovering just fine, but he will be in a brace and on crutches for the next 5 weeks and then he'll have physical therapy.

Now back to crafting news.  Here is my card for this week's challenge

Here is the inspiration:

I love this sketch.  I have some more ideas swimming around in my head using this sketch.  The watercolored background was created using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in ripe persimmon and mustard seed.  The stamp was inked with Dylusions paint (vibrant turquoise).  The stamp is from the January 2016 SMAK called free spirit by Unity Stamp Co.  I just received this stamp in the mail as a prize for commenting on Gaylynn Martling's blog when she was the Growing in Unity lady.  Unity sent me this stamp along with a bunch of others.  This stamp is huge!  Pattern paper and rhinestone with the arrows on it is Glitz.

Well gotta run and I look forward to reading your comments.  Have a fabulous week.
Until next time
