May your Happiness multiply: Sketchbook Saturday!

Thanks Chupa for having me surprise Guest Spot on 

I did 2 cards.  A more simply layered and then a more elaborate one.
Loved playing with NEW stamps!




This is my VERY first Waltzingmouse stamp set order, 
and I will say that they inked up super the very first time, and selecting layering ink colors was so easy.
(Wheeeeeeeew)

WOW
 I went a little mad with the blooms on this card, 
you can't blame me, I got the sketch the same day as my
Waltzingmouse Stamps
order arrived!!!
Yes, I was skipping around wondering what to use first, 
and I will say many got inked up, so I was not going to 
scrimp on this card!

This is so layered, that I may have to do another one!
Oh what FUN!

CASology CUE Card #59: BOOK!

CASology CUE Card #59: BOOK!

For the current CUE: Book over at CASology,
 I placed a bookmark on the card with just a few glue dots so it can be easily removed.
A fun little gift for the book lover!

I know that CAS (Clean and Simple) can be daunting for some of us.
I am still a pupil myself.  
I do find that if I try to use a portion of the card, such as one third, or even one fourth
of the overall space,
I feel that my CAS creations are more successful.

Here I have tried to remain in the bottom right fourth of the card space.
See what you can come up with for the CUE: BOOK!

INK it up and LINK it up!

Supplies:
Stamp Set: Hero Arts: Studio Calico  [set found here]
 
Copics
Memento Lady Big Red, Bahama Blue, Nautical Navy
Marachino Twine
Glue Dots, Hole Punch


Oh, and do NOT forget to visit the Wonderful Designers of  CASology
