CASology Week 255: FLY

Welcome to Week 255 at CASology!

I admit the housefly images in SU Beetles & Bugs tempted me this week, but with my baby graduating high school I was drawn more to this sentiment from Ranger's Dylusions Clearly the Right Words stamp set.

The sentiment is perfect paired with a couple of sweet Technique Tuesday sketchy birds.  All stamps were heat embossed on watercolor paper which allowed me to add a touch of color with Zig markers.

The Design Team has more terrific ideas for you!

Guest Designer: Angie!

We are looking forward to seeing how FLY inspires you -  just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until Monday at noon (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Papertrey Ink June 2017 Blog Hop + FMS #293 + Seize the Birthday

It's been a while since I've participated in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, but I just couldn't forget the ombre jars in the June 2017 inspiration photo. For more details, head over to Capture the Moment.

Blog hop inspiration

I started by applying Peacock Feather and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks to a couple of white panels and cutting a PTI Big Basics: Wish Big die out of each. The teal panel was cut with a stitched curved edge, the Wish Big removed and replaced the the coral die cut.  The completed panel is then popped up on a white card base.

I love how the two complementary ombre colors look together!

The design is based on Freshly Made Sketches #293 and is also being linked to the Seize the Birthday challenge where Anything Goes.

Fusion - Four of July Jars + Seize the Birthday Anything Goes

This card popped in my head as soon as I saw the  Fusion - Four of July Jars challenge earlier today. As you can see, I was inspired by the red, white and blue jars and the sketch.

I already had the white cardstock center panel leftover from another project and added the Papersmoochies sentiment before embossing it with the stars. The red MFT frame was adhered to the navy cardbase first, then the white panel inset and the stars scattered and adhered at varying heights.

I had a hard time getting a true color in these photographs. This close up is a little better than the full card photo.

As this card will be used for a friend celebrating her 4th of July birthday, I am entering it in the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes challenge.
