CAS(E) this Sketch #62

I have not played at CAS(E) this sketch in a long time.....But here I am with  a card for it:

 I used the STAMPlorations set Retro Mod Shapes to make this card. I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed the paper strip with clear embossing powder and then sponged in green and reds.

The dots on the side are a TCW stencil. The sentiment is Hero Arts.

Its kind of hard to photograph it right, so I took three pictures.....

I am also linking this card with the Snippets Playground - used snippets only (except the card base)
Less is More - Rainbow - well - it has most colors of the rainbow...

Great take on the sketch, Cornelia! I love how you've added the dotty stencil either side too.
Such a fun card! I love it with its warm colors and the wee dots behind it, so nice.

I always love your cards. I have a question, tho'. Was the base of the colored card not white? Or did you sponge, emboss, and then sponge some more? I'm confused why the embossed shapes aren't white. Thanks!
Hi Irene - thanks in your interest - I guess I should have mentioned it in the post, but the strip was colored to start out with, going from green to yellow to red.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
