Happy Tuesday!

It’s another new challenge week at Cas Colours and Sketches. This week’s challenge #309 is a colors sketch. Please come and play along with us.


First, I stamped the Coreopsis from Technique Tuesday with a Copic Markers friendly ink, Hero Arts Intense Black Ink onto a piece of 4″ by 5.25″ eighty pounds of Neenah White card stock.  I colored the flowers with Copic Markers (Y02, Y06, Y08, YG13, YG17 and YG23). I stamped the sentiment from Versa Fine Oxyx Black Ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts’ Clear Embossing Powder. To finish the card, I glued my card panel onto my A2 one hundred pounds of Neenah White card base.

Happy Friday, everyone!!

Today’s card features Simon Says Stamp’s Leafy Frame Stencil and Beautiful Flowers 2 Stamps Set. It’s day two for the 30 day coloring challenge and I am trying to participate this time.


First, I started working on my card panel by ink blending with a leafy stencil with Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Inks onto a Bristol Smooth card stock. Next, I stamped the sentiment Big Thanks Words from Simon Says Stamp with VersaFine’s Onyx Black ink and heat-embossed it with Hero Arts’ Clear Embossing powder.

Hey there, thanks for making my day brighter

Happy Wednesday!

I had so much fun playing with this Die-cut inlay technique so I decided to make another card using Simon Says Stamp’s Flower Cluster Die.


First, I die cut the Flower Cluster Die onto a piece of A2 sized Recollection Navy Blue card stock to create my card panel. Next, I die cut the Flower Cluster Die onto a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and I carefully flipped it over and used purple tape to tape all the pieces together so I can ink blend it later. I removed the outline of the die cut first and left all of the other pieces on the tape. I used the ink blending tools to blend the Wore Lipstick and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks onto the pieces of die cut that stayed on the purple tape.

I cut a piece of white printer paper which measured 3.75″ by 5.25″,  a little smaller than my Navy card panel.  I covered the white printer paper with glue tape and adhered my Navy card panel onto the white paper. I glued the Flower Cluster Die back to the Navy card panel. Then I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Hey There Sunshine and Big Thanks Words stamp sets with VersaMark Ink and heat-embossed it with Hero Arts’ White detailed embossing powder.

To finish the card, I adhered the card panel onto an A2 Neenah White (110 lbs) card base.


I hope you like the card. Thanks for visiting and see you next time!

Happy Sunday everyone! Today, I am sharing this thank you card I made for a friend.  I used Altenew – Mother’s Love flower stamp set.  I stamped the flower on a Mama Elephant’s creative tag die and colored it with Copic markers.  I blended another tag die with Distress Oxide inks and put both of them on the front of the card.  I also used the same flower stamp to make my own pattern paper for both the outside and inside of the card.



The sentiment inside of the card is from Pretty Pink Posh – Thoughtful Greetings.  I finished the card by adding some Lucy’s jewels.


Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!


Supplies: Altenew – Mother’s Love, Pretty Pink Posh – Thoughtful Greeting,  Copic Markers, RV13, RV17, RV52, RV55, YG13 and YG17, Altenew Crisp Inks – Frosty Pink and Distress Oxide Inks – worn lipstick, picked raspberry and cracked pistachio.

Teacher card

Hello everyone!

Teacher appreciation time! Today I am sharing some thank you cards I made for my daughter’s teachers. I used Simons Says Stamp Deco Diamonds for the background, heated them with Heroarts embossing powder, and blended it with Distress Oxide inks. Simple but I had so much fun making them!
