CAS(E) this Sketch #65+ CTD280 + Seize the Birthday & Card Concept #4 + Wplus9 Trend Watch


I have a couple of cards to share today. This first one was inspired by the CAS(E) this Sketch #65, Color Throwdown #280 and Seize the Birtthday Anything Goes challenges.






I thought the sketch was perfect for using these Elizabeth Crafts candles dies I picked up last fall when visiting my parents in Victoria. I used white cardstock and inked the candles after they were die cut.




The candles are popped up and tied with a piece of navy twine. A little selective masking allowed me to use the Throwndown colors in the sentiment.

This next card combines the Card Concept Challenge #4: Use a Floral Theme with Wplus9 Birthday Celebration Week 3: Trend Watch.




I tried my hand at a Clean & Layered card using Fresh Cut Florals and a few Memento VersaMagic inks.




For the Trend Watch, I used a little piece of washi tape to ground my mason jar and a number of sequins scattered throughout the bouquet.




I love that these iridescent sequins take on the colors around them.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

    1. It's a PTI sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday stamp set - very easy to mask and use multiple colors :)

  6. So gorgeous. I love them both. I especially love the way you inked that first sentiment, getting all the colors for the challenge. And, I continue to swoon every time I see a bouquet made with those WPlus9 florals.
