Dia De Los Muertos (and some flowers)

It seems like I haven't posted many blogs in the last couple weeks or so. It's not that I haven't been creating...I have. Some cards I couldn't post because they were part of some new stamps for Sparkle n Sprinkle where I am a DT. I just have to wait for the Go! to post them. Some others I made for them I just haven't posted but will do so later today and hopefully tonight too. 

Anyway....there's a new sketch challenge blog that's all about the Clean and Simple design. I usually don't do that, well, at least not THIS CAS. But, I thought it would be fun to participate. 

Here's the sketch...

I made two completely different cards...the theme anyway. 

Here's the first...

I love these skulls by Deadbeat Designs for Halloween/Day of the Dead. I just bought them over the weekend too. The embossing powder I've had FOREVER. It's called Lapis Lazuli. I love all the different colors after it's embossed. The gemstones, depending on where you are and the light will reflect the embossed colors. Very cool. 

The second card....

I used stamps from Sparkle n Sprinkle Blossoms set. However, the stamps are also sold individually. I added some Liberty glitter (also from SNS) to the center of the red flower. It has bits of deep blue and red. 

I am entering the first card into the CAS(E) This Sketch! Challenge #1.


  1. Both cards are fantastic! How AWEsome is the skull on pink, especially with those bling eyes, LoVe it!
