(CAS)E This Sketch! times two

I really love this sketch by Lisa - I ended up making 2 cards inspired by it, and I can see myself making even more. Next I want to play with snowflakes like she did :) The (CAS)E This Sketch #4 linky will be open until Tuesday if you want to play along too. Here's the sketch:

My first card is extremely close to the sketch:
Supplies: monstah from Paper Smooches- coloured by Barbles;
rub-on from EAD Designs;
scrap cardstock; 3 polka-dot Cuttlebug embossing folders;
circle punches



Mr. Monstah is popped up on foam pads, and of course he needed googly eyes!

My second card is definitely inspired by the sketch, but I changed the sentiment around & added some more bits & bobs, so I'm not sure if it still counts as CAS....but I totally heart it & the sketch made it happen. 
Supplies: papers unknown;
chipboard from Fancy Pants & sentiment from PTI - from Barbles :)
Fired Brick distress ink;
yellow washi from We R Memory Keepers;
square punch for notched ends
We had a great anniversary, a lovely supper at the Saltscapes restaurant in Truro, and an early night. We're getting pretty old...and dinner out last night at a friend's taught me exactly how much wine is too much. It's a good thing to know, but having Connor watching Jumanji with its infernal DRUMS is killing me today ;) 
xoxo,
Jessi

Both cards are awesome and so different from each other. The first one has CUTENESS all over it and the second is very PRETTY! So glad you played along with us in this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!

I'm with Barb -- the second is definitely CAS... and so pretty! The first one -- too much fun! Love that distressed sentiment rub-on, and of course your googly-eyed monster. :) Hope Jumanji is done playing by now, but perhaps your head still feels the drumbeats? ;)

Gorgeous cards, Jessi! I love the spots on the monster. LOL And those circles with the hearts are fantastic. I spot woodgrain washi tape, too!

Great take on the sketch and Mr. Monstah is too cute! Love how you added the polka dots on him too!

Glad you had a great dinner!

JJ Bolton said...

Both of these are wonderful for totally different reasons:) I love the first one because that monster with the underbite is one of my most favorite PS stamps! He has so much personality (and he looks a lot like one of my coworkers, lol).

And your 2nd card is so uplifting! The colors, the sentiment, just everything! Just makes you smile:)

These are so fun, Jessi! Love the different ways of interpreting the sketch here. Oh, yes, I'd say both of these are CAS!!!!
