CASology #287


Welcome to Week 287 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I took inspiration from how Jennifer McGuire used sentiments to create backgrounds on these cards.  I love the look of it and thought it would work well here with the PB&J.  I actually plan to make more similar cards using other food combos from this set - one of these days!

Candles & Trees


Hello hello!  

I have two cards to share today.  First up is for CAS(E) This Sketch and Seize the Birthday (where the topping is Candles).  I went totally literal with the CTS sketch using Mama Elephant stamps.  Love that sentiment.  So cheeky!

Stamps:  (All from Birthday Wishes) Mama Elephant

Glitter:  (Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Shimmer) Tonic
Gems:  Recollections



This card was inspired by the photo over at Just Add Ink.  Those trees are gorgeous!  I used CAS-ual Fridays stamps for the sentiment and tree and scattered gems in among the leaves.  I added some (ancient) Basic Grey paper for the side panel.

Flowers & Love


Hi there!  

I'm popping in with cards for a few challenges.  First up is for CAS Colours and Sketches and the CAS on Friday dies challenge.  The flower is an ancient My Favourite Things die and the Poppy Stamps thank you die was a gift from my lovely friend Hazel.  The flower comes in 3 sizes so I layered them up to create the cool striped look.



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Blushing Bide, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Stem from Bold Blooms) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (Wild Wasabi) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Flower & leaf trio) My Favourite Things, (Thank you) Poppy Stamps
Other:  (Nuvo Rhubarb Crumble Drops) Tonic
Gems:  Recollections




Next up is a design inspired by Anita's card at Muse.  I focused on the flowers and the sentiment layered over them.  



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (So Saffron, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers from Larger Than Life) Papertrey Ink, (Sentiment from Monkey Business) Reverse Confetti
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Pink Diamond, Frayed Leaf, Sea Glass, Soft Lilac) Altenew
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Larger Than Life) Papertrey Ink
Twine:  Darice
Gems:  Recollections




Finally is a card for Colour Throwdown, AAA Cards and the Simon Says Wednesday challenge.  Lots of love themed challenges out there at the moment and this Paper Smooches love die is bold and fun.  I covered the letters in Aqua Shimmer Glitter which is my new favourite! Lots of sparkle in real life.

Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (Regal Rose, Real Red, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up

I don't know too many stampers without at least one butterfly stamp so I'm hoping to see lots of you playing along this week.  This is one of my favourite love sentiments and given how many butterfly stamps I own I think I'll get plenty of use from it!

CASology #285


Welcome to Week 285 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I've had Katy Perry singing this line in my head ever since I made this card.  Hopefully it will fade away after this week!  This My Favourite Things set is so fun with lots of cute sentiments and matching glasses dies.  It's one of those sets that went in and out of my shopping cart for ages but I'm so glad I finally got it.        

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!

CASology #284


Welcome to Week 284 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I was going to go with making a belated birthday card for this week's challenge since that's the only kind I ever seem to need.  (I really must get organized this year!!)  However I stumbled upon this CAS-ual Fridays stamp set and figured I'd dust it off and give it some love.  With such a simple layout I decided to go for bright and bold colours to jazz it up a bit and the keyboard buttons are popped up on foam tape.  I also gave them a bit of bling because...  well, why not!       


Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!
