FOSTV 44 - CAS sketch

Happy Monday!!!  I hope you had a good weekend!  It's the start of a new week and a new challenge at FOSTV!  Our challenge this week is a CAS Sketch challenge.  I hope you will have a lot of fun with it.  You can find all the details of the FOSTV challenge at Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co. HERE.

CAS Sketch


I signed up at SCS with the Christmas Card challenge and challenged myself to make 5 Christmas cards a month.  That has turned out to be a bigger challenge than I imagined but I have managed to reach my goal each month!!  This card was my 5th for October,  Woohoo!!!  

I used two brand new sets, Poinsettia Blooms and Christmas Selections, available now in the MFP a Heinrich Co. store.  For my card I felt like I had too many sharp edges so I rounded 2 corners on each small square.

 Ok, So DH just looked over my shoulder and said, "It should have a candle or something on it with that sentiment".  Tell me what you think....is it fine....or do I need to redo?


"Oh Crab" is the prize that will be given to one lucky winner!

Welcome to day 3 of the hop! Today we are showcasing  MFP a Heinrich Co. "Cracked Hello".  This set has a cool background stamp that looks like crackle paint!  It includes several sentiments and a gorgeous butterfly!



 I used the "ghosting" technique on my tag.  I inked up the "cracked paint" stamp with VersaMark watermark ink  then sponged on the color!  At first I didn't think it was working but as I kept sponging on more color....the cracks began to appear!!!  

Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team's awesome creations and leave a sweet comment for a chance to win this fabulous stamp set!
