CAS on Sunday Challenge #38: With Sympathy

Hi everyone! Today is an exciting day for me as I am guest designing over at the CAS on Sunday challenge blog - yay! I was very fortunate to win challenge #36 and the prize was a GDT spot for challenge #38! Huge thanks to Janneke and all the girls over at CAS on Sunday for having me!

The theme for challenge #38 is a sympathy card and we are being sponsored by Cas-ual Friday Stamps.

For my card I used the chicken wire stamp and the ink swipe stamp from my Clearly Whimsy Stamps Distressed Backgrounds & Ink Splats stamp set. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Life's Moments rubber stamp set and the butterfly was trimmed from the Whimsy Stamps Butterfly Border die:


Supplies
Clearly Whimsy Stamps Distressed Backgrounds & Ink Splats stamp set
Whimsy Stamps Life's Moments rubber stamp set
Whimsy Stamps Butterfly Border die
Memento ink: Grey Flannel, Sweet Plum
Versafine ink: Onyx Black
Bazzil cardstock: Heidi
Ranger Enamel Accents: Black

I followed CAS(E) this Sketch #85 for my layout, so I would like to enter my card into that challenge too.


We'd love you to join us for the challenge and you have until Friday 1st August 6:00 PM Dutch Time to enter.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

SugarPea Designs July Sweet Sneak: Spare Me

Hi SugarPea fans and welcome to our July Release Day! Today we are showing you the last of the 4 SPD stamp sets released this week and available to buy from the store RIGHT NOW!! Introducing ... Spare Me from the Beanstalk Collection:


Supplies
SugarPea Designs Spare Me stamp set
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Copic markers
Echo Park 6x6 paper pad@ Happy Days (HD19023)
My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad: Necessities - Wood (NC1105)
Bazzil cardstock: Raven
Ribbon

I wanted to create a bit of movement to the scene by making it look like he had already thrown the ball and it was travelling down the alley towards the pins, so after inking the stamp and before I actually stamped it onto my white card, I carefully wiped away the ink from the ball in his hand! This fabulous set comes with SO many great sentiments and accessory stamps, including the separate ball stamp I used and loads of pins! My little set of 4 pins is actually just one stamp stamped 4 times - I didn't even have to mask them as I carefully lined them up when stamping so that the bottom outline of the back pin lined up with the bottom of the red stripe of the front pin!


Would you like to WIN the Spare Me stamp set?! Hop along and visit with the SugarPeas and guests, leaving some comment love along the way! One lucky person will be randomly selected to win the Spare Me stamp set!

Welcome to Day 2 of the
Whimsy Stamps July rubber stamp and die release!

This week Whimsy Stamps is releasing 14 new red rubber stamp/stamp sets and 4 coordinating die/die sets, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers ... TOMORROW!


PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $15 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop! The lucky winner will be drawn from the comments left on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment at every stop along the hop to be entered into the draw.

Yesterday we sneak peeked the new Elisabeth Bell, Time For Tea Designs and Raindrop Echo Designs products. Today we are excited to show you the brand new Crissy Armstrong, Wee Stamps and SC Designs stamps and dies being released this month. For a full reveal of these stamps, check out the Whimsy blog!

For today's card, I have used the elegant SC Designs Feathers and Flourish stamp set.  I heat embossed the peacock feather twice in gold embossing powder and stamped one of the sentiments onto vellum and heat embossed that in white.  When I made this card, I neglected to consider how difficult it would be to photograph, lol!  (Note to self: buy a light tent and a daylight lamp). So please forgive me for the pants photograph, but I hope you get the idea:



Supplies
Whimsy Stamps Feathers and Flourish stamp set
Versamark ink
Gold embossing powder
WOW! Superfine Bright White Embossing Powder Opaque (WL01SF)
Vellum
Bazzill cardstock: Date Swirl
