Cozy Thoughts

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #28 – colors.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #28

And here is my take:

by Karen @ carefree creations - Cozy Thoughts

When the new Stampin’Up catalog came out, there was a set that caught my eye and wouldn’t let go. I’m not sure what it is about the Kind & Cozy set, but I love it! So when my box came in time for me to use my new supplies for this challenge, I knew just which set I’d pull out!

The sentiment and extra flowers are inked using markers.

I did use a non-Stampin Up product to create the faux-stitching around the border, but that’s because I’m essentially lazy. You could easily keep this SU-only (suo) by paper piercing a border.

I didn’t do a great job lining up my gingham wheel, but I am challenged with non-polymer stamps (and, as I said before, too lazy to break out my stamp-a-ma-jig!). Even so, I can’t decide if I like it squashed up against each other, or with a break between them. I guess I’ll just have to spend more time with that wheel and play 😉

My layout is based on a somewhat recent CAS(e) This Sketch layout.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

  1. I like the gingham like this and that sentiment really looks funky with the cracked look ‘you’. Great use of colours x

  2. This is a beautiful card Karen with wonderful use of the colours. So pretty! xx
