Birthday Cards, CAS Colours & Sketches

CAS Colours & Sketches – Challenge #366 – Happy Birthday!

Hello friends! I hope you all had a great weekend!


It’s time for a new sketch challenge starts today over at CC&S! Here is the beautiful sketch created by our host, Patricia!

I used Hero Arts’ February card kit (2020) to make this card. First, I stamped the image with Versa Mark Ink and heated embossing with Hero Arts’ White Detailed embossing powder. Next, I ink blended with Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Barn Door Distressed Oxide Inks. I trimmed the image down to 3 1/2″ by 3″. I die cut the gift and the cupcakes out and popped them up with foam tape.

I splashed some white paint on to my A2 Navy Bazzill card base with a watercoloring brush. I also cut a thin strip of paper from the card panel that I ink blended and glued it onto the A2 card base. I stamped the sentiment with Versa Mark Ink and heat embossing with Hero Arts’ white embossing powder. To finish off the card, I popped up the ink blended image with foam tape onto the card panel.


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

Happy Wednesday!

Can’t believe Easter is right around the corner! Time passes by so fast. It’s another new challenge today at Word Art Wednesday. Please play along with us!


This week’s challenge features the script from 1PETER 1:3.

I made my card panel by ink blending Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron, and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks onto a piece of 4.25″ by 5.5″ Bristol Smooth Surface White Card Stock to make the background. After it completely dried, I used the Ranger’s Mister bottle to spray some water onto the background. I used the heating tool to heat set it. Continue reading “Word Art Wednesday”
