Case This Sketch

January 18, 2020

Good Morning Friends! I hope you all are doing well. I have had a hard time being "crafty" lately and have thrown away more projects than I care to admit. I thought I would find a challenge and use that for some inspiration. I've always enjoyed the Case This Sketch challenges, so I started there. I also decided to link my card up to the Christmas Kickstart Challenge, Penguin Parade. I pulled out some supplies and just created a card...



I used the sketch for my inspiration:


I started my card by creating my ink blended rectangle. I used the Taylored Expressions making stencil along with the MFT Stamps Lots of Heart stencil. 


Next, I used the Mama Elephant Fuzzy Hugs stamp set. I bought this stamp set when it was released and I am just getting around to using it for the first time. The images are so sweet and perfect for winter and Valentine's Day too. I stamped my image and colored it with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut it out.



I stamped my sentiment onto a banner. I attached my sentiment, along with my image to my card front with foam adhesive. I then mounted my card front onto a coordinating pink mat before attaching everything to an A2 card base.



Aren't these little penguins just the sweetest?
Sorry my photos are a little "yellow" today. It is late in the afternoon, and I was running out of daylight. It was my goal to get something made today and my post ready for in the morning.
I hope you all have a Wonderful weekend. Ric is out of town for a few days and I am hoping to stay home and be creative. Wish me luck...
Enjoy your day,
Dana
