On Cloud 9 with Kate Spade

Cloud 9 challenge time again.  
I was looking to capture a bit of the watercolour-like background with the help of Jennifer McGuire's latest video using Inktense pencils, but it didn't quite work so went with watercolouring the flowers.  My collection of pencils is sadly restricted but had fun colouring on yet another dreary weekend.  

I used this elegant sketch for the layout and am always in need of birthday cards.  

What you need
Cardstock - BB apricot, dark brown;  SU white
Patterned paper - MME Miss Caroline Howdy Doody
Stamps - Wplus9 A Special Lady, Filigree Frames
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black;  SU Early Espresso
Embossing Powder - Coloriser (clear)
Inktense pencils
Die - Spellbinders Banners
Twine - Jillibean Soup


Kate Spade would have to be one of my favourite designers - I have nothing of hers except perfume, and a burning desire for a particular bag.  So I had to participate in this challenge.  

And CAS(E) this Sketch compliments the simple patterns perfectly.  I wanted to pick up on the black stripes and the yellow in the skirt.  So hopefully the text stamp sort of looks like stripes and my yellow girls I just love.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white, black;  BB yellow
Stamps - PTI Background Basics: Text Style;  Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Words
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black
Die - MFT
Pearls - Kaisercraft


  1. Gorgeous, Cassie! I love both of them. The yellow and black card makes me smile! :-)

  2. I absolutely love both cards. The Kate Spade challenge is on my to-do list for this week; love the black and yellow. And, like you, would love a Kate Spade purse, but am unlikely to ever own one.

  3. Both are wonderful. Love your coloring on the flowers on that first card and the color combo on the second.
