CAS(E) this Sketch (CTS) Week 1 (Times 2)



(ETA - Missed the deadline, so no link to CAS(E) this Sketch this week - I'll have to try again next week!)

There's a new challenge blog in town - CAS(E) this Sketch!  Some of my favourite stampers are on the Design Team, and each week there is a CAS sketch, for you to CASE.




In honour of its first challenge, I've made two cards. But one may not qualify, so I'll just link this first one. I have no idea who made these stamps, but I thought it would be a fun anniversary card (to remind him that I had many other choices, lol!) or even a graduation or congratulations card for my son or one of his friends.

Here's the second card. My sentiment is not in the right place for the challenge, but I think it's a fun card.
These are also old clear stamps (except for the wrongly placed sentiment, which is Papertrey) and I'm not sure who made them.

They are both fabulous. I love how well the sentiment works with the images on the first one...a perfect masculine card...and the second card is so sweet!

Will he get it?? I like how you've got the fine font under the bold image, and vice versa. And I love how the yellow mat on the second card highlights the sparkly sun.

Bummer that you missed the deadline because these rock! I especially love the bling on the sun and the way you shaded the clouds. :)

I'm really good at just missing challenge deadlines! Glad you posted these; they're great, and I really like how you coloured the clouds and sun.

Deborah Frings said...

Absolutely love the first card. Clean, simple, graphic - just perfect. And I love the splash of yellow on the sunshine card!

Two super cute cards! Believe it or not, I made a card for the challenge and got it in just hrs before it closed. Better luck this week. :)

I saw the Your the Man card on Pinterest -- it caught my attention. Fabulous masculine card~

Geri said...

These are both awesome! Bummer on missing the deadline...especially with a winning entry like one would have been! The clouds and sunshine are so sweet (great shading on the clouds)

Lisa Lara said...

I want to play in this challenge. Love both cards Ardyth.

Kelly Griglione said...

oh wow-eee!! How are you so smart to have the bold man in between the two bold words?!? Such a PERFECT visual triangle!! You always amaze me.

The cloud/sun take on the challenge is great too. Love how you interpreted the sketch and didn't use all the same shape across the card.
