Welcome to some Casually Crafting.

We are a group of Demonstrators from around the world that are joining together in a Blog Hop to show you some stamping for the Casual Stampers.  We are focusing on projects that use limited supplies, but are inspiring to all types of stampers especially the Beginner and Casual Stampers.  This month we had a Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  What a great way to get those creative juices going.

Here is the challenge.  It is a Card Sketch.

I had decided to show a technique that I demonstrated on my "What Now" Series that I do on a Facebook Live every Thursday Evening.  I am showing various products that we have in our craft rooms and are being neglected.  Or maybe someone doesn't know how to use them.  Last week I did another episode on the Stampin' Write Markers®.  We coloured on Blocks with our markers for a pretty Background.

Here is my card that I did using the technique and the sketch above.  In the video, I finished the card differently, but changed it right after the video.

The measurements for my card are:

So Saffron: 4" x 5 1/4"

Pool Party: 2 3/8" x 3 3/8", 3/8" x 2 3/8"

Like, I said above, I changed the card a bit from the video, but you will see how I did this amazing background technique.
