Couple of cards… CFC#43 & RetroSketches#2

Hi there. Happy Monday everyone… hope you had a good weekend ;)
I had the chance to rustle up a couple of CAS ideas, the first I’ll be entering into a pair of challenges -
Cas-ual Fridays CFC43 : CFC43 Cas-ual Friday challenge … and the new challenge blog Retro Sketches#2 :
Retro Sketches 2 challengeSo here’s my card…

card idea challenges CFC43 CAS sketch RS2 Crate Paper

Definitely going for the CAS look….
I machine stitched a panel of paper from Memory Box ‘Brioche’ 6x6in pack, and layered an Accent Cut from the Crate Paper ‘Farmhouse’ collection up on foam pads. It works pretty well for the ‘sentiment’ showcase that the CAS-ual Friday gals are challenging. Then finished off with blue gems.

And here’s another quick CAS idea I managed to squeeze into my crafting afternoon too…

smile card washi tape stripesI just created a few stripes with washi tape strips (adding one to the envelope too for a cute match!), then gave it a ‘smile’ greeting with Doodlebug Design alpha stickers and added the ‘Detail’ 3D flower sticker by American Crafts.
All polished off with a few opaque white gems.

That’s all for now folks… pop back tomorrow for a Trend-Alert Tuesday hexagons idea!
Have a good day, Rx

    Both your cards are beautiful Ruth! Love the sweetie pie image – reminds me of a retro label! Sorry it’s taken me this long to come back and comment – I only had time to peek at everyone’s cards before! Thanks so much for playing with us at RetroSketches and I hope you will join us again!

    Ruth, this is awesome! Well both are awesome. :)
    I love that panel with the gems on that first one, and the washi tape on the second. Both are fantastic. :)

    I hope you are doing well! Thanks so much for the sweet comments on my blog and for keeping up with me despite my absence.
    Hugs,

    I really must get my dusty old sewing machine out! The stitching looks great on your card! The lettering is wonderfully bold and graphic! So glad you played along with us at Retrosketches Ruth! :)
