CAS(E) this Sketch | Challenge #52

I am super excited about today's card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. I love receiving my Simon Says Stamp kit in the mail every month, and last month's kit was fantastic! Super cute paper and sequins from Lawn Fawn, an adorable stamp set, and some fun embellishments. I used mostly this kit, plus some enamel dots, for today's card.

I used the rock and roll technique on the leaves, inking them in Papertrey Ink's Orange Zest then Terracotta Tile. I used glue dots to adhere the sequins down, then placed an enamel dot in the center of each. 

 (Supplies - Stamps: (Simon Says Stamps) Giving Thanks. Ink: (PTI) Black, Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile. (Memento Luxe) Espresso Truffle. Cardstock: (SSS) Wood grain. (Neenah) Desert Storm. Patterned Paper: (Freckled Fawn) Into the Woods. Sequins: (Freckled Fawn) Into the Woods. Letter stickers: Kelly Purkey. Die: (PTI) Tiny Tags. Other: Enamel dots, twine.)

I have one more card to share today, using a new die I just purchased from Simon Says Stamp: Big Hello die. And it is awesome. When JJ Bolton created this card back in 2012, I was in awe. It's totally gorgeous and the 3D look is amazing! And I wanted to create something similar with my new Hello die. Here is what I came up with:

(Supplies - Stamps: (PTI) Rosie Posie and Rosie Posie additions. Ink: (Stampin' Up!) Pink Pirouette. (PTI) Berry Sorbet. Cardstock; (PTI) White. Die: (Simon Says Stamp) Hello Big. Other: Enamel dots, stickles.)

Choosing two step stamping made the technique a little more complicated, but the overall results are pretty cool. I added stickles to the dark pink sections for a little more dimension. 

I am also submitting both of these cards to this week's Simon Says Challenge: Anything Goes

That's it for me today! Evan and I are watching the Seahawks... and hoping for a comeback against Tampa Bay. :)

Have a great week!
