A card I didn't case!

I like to surf the web looking at the beautiful art work on so many cards and I end up casing quite a few of them. Today I decided to make a card that wasn't cased. The easiest way for me to do that is to do a sketch challenge and to make it before I look at it's gallery. This card was made using this weeks sketch challenge (#300) on Splitcoast stampers.

Lots of cards to post.

I have not posted anything in quite some time, but I have gotten to play a bit. Here are some of the ones I have made lately.

A couple of weeks ago I was signed up for a workshop on brayering that got canceled. I watched serval videos on U-tube to help me work on this technique. Here is the first card I made.

And here is a card I cased that I saw on Splitcoast.

These 2 cards I made after seeing the blended pencil tutorial on Splitcoast.

They did take a lot of time to color, but I was pleasantly surprised on how well I did.


I have wanted to try using the clorox /bleaching technique but never got around to it thinking it would be so hard to do. After seeing a card on the Stampin' Up demostrator website I just had to try the technique and case that card. It was so simple to do. Be sure to heat emboss your images first!

This next card uses a technique that I thought I had read from Technique Junkies Newsletter. In trying to find what it is called I could not find it there or on Splitcoast. If anyone does find out please send me a link. To do this technique you heat emboss a solid image using white embossing powder on a dark background. You then use a permanant marker like Copic or Sharpie to color the embossing.


These 2 cards I cased off of some cards I saw on Splitcoast.



These 3 cards my sister Marie made for my example box. They are so cute!
