CAS-Colour and Sketches #12

Happy Valentine's Day my friends!

I hope you are all loved up and have a day full of hugs and kisses!!!

Today I know I should be sharing a Valentine's card but I'm guessing you have seen quite a few them over the last month. So I am going with a Birthday card instead.

This week at CAS-Colour and Sketches is our sketch challenge week. And here is the sketch we have for you:

I thought about this one for a while as I really wanted to use stamps to represent the circles. I played around with various stamps and finally went with the PTI medallion set. I recently learnt the triple time stamping technique but today I have just used double time stamping-not sure if that is a 'thing' but I tried it and liked how it looked! What do you think?

I added a die cut flower with a centre pearl to give the card an extra dimension.

I am looking forward to seeing what this sketch inspires you to make. Our DT have made some super cards using this sketch so pop over to our blog here and take a peek.

Have a fun and loving day and happy crafting!

  2. Well done using your double time stamping technique!!! I think it looks great, Sandie. I love your interpretation of the sketch and the medallion stamp is awesome! xx

  3. I'm thinking it's incredible that you were able to line up the stamps so perfectly. It is awesome. I love the flower is the perfect touch.

  4. Sandie this is beautiful! A perfect technique for this sketch! I love that your card is still very clean with lots of white space.

  5. Thank you so much for the inspiration, Sandie! This is a great sketch and your card is wonderful.

  6. You're a CAS queen! This is fab! Love the medallion stamps... so classy!

  7. Oops Sandie, I'm very late commenting but I loved your card the moment you posted it. Love the off the edge stamping and the flower, brilliant use of the sketch too.
