CAS(E) this Sketch #3

I had some time to play around with this week's CAS(E) this sketch #3, and I have to say that the more I played with the sketch, the more I liked it.

First, I thought I would make a Chanukah card, using my new Menorah Medley dies from PTI.  Shimmer paper is so beautiful in person, but doesn't work very well in my photos.  I ended up having to flip the sketch because I messed up the embossing of the sentiment, and didn't want to waste my precious shimmer paper, so I just turned it over and tried again.

I decided to play around with this sketch some more, and tried a few versions for next year's Rosh Hashanah cards.  Nothing like being ahead of the game, since it won't roll around for another 11 months.

I made this card using all the pieces that were cut out from the star of David die cut above. 

The card in the middle is my favorite, so that is the card I am linking up to this week's CAS(E) this sketch.  Do you have a favorite?

Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Menorah Medley, Mazel Tov
Paper:  Spring Rain, Silver Shimmer, Dark Blue Shimmer, Rustic Cream, Scarlet Jewel
Ink:  VersaMark, Scarlet Jewel
Other:  Menorah Medley Dies, Silver Embossing Powder, Canvas/Linen Impression Plate

Thanks for Visiting


  1. Joyce these cards are fantastic! You used your new Papertrey goodies, love the shimmery paper too.

  2. beautiful cards!! love that shimmery paper!

  3. I like all of them really went to town with those new dies! My favorite is the last one the linen and canvas impression on it. I laughed when you said you screwed up the embossing on the precious shimmer paper...I am always afraid to use mine for fear of wrecking (and wasting) it too!

  4. I think all three are very gorgeous Joyce! I also think your choice of the middle one was perfect! Hard pick though. You are for sure ahead of the game…. hey,we have to use your new stamps. Love the simple elegance of all three.

  5. Both cards are lovely, the second one is really elegant! So glad you played along in this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!

  6. What a great set of cards Joyce. Perfect layout to showcase the star of David. I think the last card is my favorite. The impression really adds some visual interest and the star looks so bold.

  7. Joyce you will be so ahead of the game! I think I like the last one the best because of the texture. I really love the shimmer on the first one too, though 😉

  8. Joyce,
    all these cards are awesome. too hard to pick a favorite. I bet that shimmer card is beautiful in person. I know what you mean about photos that make a glare.

  9. Oh, they are all great. But if you are making me pick, I think I like the 3rd one the best, I like how you used the negative image.

  10. These are all amazing and I especially where you used the negatives from the die. Thanks for playing along with us at CAS(E) this Sketch!
