CAS(E) This Sketch # 16 - SWAK


It's time for CAS(E) This Sketch 16:



Once again, I got a little stuck with the shape of one of the design elements. I saw lipstick (I hope it looks like lipstick! lol!).

I cut the gold 'case' using only a paper trimmer (and a score tool, to give it some texture). For the red lipstick, I used one of the Papertrey long label dies to make sure I got the curve right. The sentiment is The Cat's Pajama's Coolvetica alphabet.

The black glossy cardstock that I used as a mat is from one of our somewhat-local stamp stores (about 2 hours away, in the town where my parents live). I think the shiny black adds a fun touch.

Now it's your turn to see what the rest of the design team came up with and to see what you see in this week's sketch!

PS - thank you for all your kind comments yesterday. Here is where to find the MFT Grosgrain plate (I really am going to have to ask for a commission, even if only half of you who asked actually buy one - they'll be wondering what's going on! lol!).

Love the Marilyn Munroe/movie star feel of this card - something so rich and dynamic with a red/gold combo!

What a fun way to look at the sketch! Totally unique!

Kelly Griglione said...

Well now that you SHOWED me a lipstick, of course, it is SO obvious! Hahaha, brilliant, Ardyth, just brilliant. And too funny that your local scrapbook store is two hours away!

Hi Ardyth ~ your lip-stick card is marvelous; such a clever interpretation of the sketch! Your choice of lipstick particularly resonates with me, as I've just returned home after a weekend visit with my family (wish we lived closer!!). My niece ('6 sleeps away' from turning 3...time flies!!) and I played 'make-up' one evening, and Aunty, who never wears lipstick...well, I did. And 'some' of it wound up on my lips...Oh, the things we do for those we love!
Your cards are charming day-brighteners, which is why I've had your site on my Google Reader for a few weeks now!
Thank you ever so much for commenting on my Warm Thoughts on Wings card! Comments coming from a talented, creative individual such as yourself certainly go a long way in amping up my confidence and stoking my motivation. I also 'hear' you about the 'local' scrap supply store being 2 hours' away; I'm in a similar situation, living in small town Alberta. Good thing for 'on line' shopping!
Have a wonderful Tuesday - and warm thoughts are winging their way to you, all well!
