CASology Challenge #372: BALL

Did you think of a formal dance, round shape or sports equipment first when you saw the cue word this week? There are so many ways to interpret this word. Sports is what inspired my card. We aren't the biggest baseball fans out there, but we usually get to a couple Padres games every season and have missed the option this year.

I used a stitched edge die to cut the white panel and adhered the two pieces to a navy blue panel, leaving a slim space. The red chevron pieces are adhered over this to "sew" the pieces together, mimicking the stitches on a baseball. The sentiment is from PTI Penned Elegance and inked in navy blue.

Freshly Made Sketches #446

Have you fallen in love with slimline cards? I was so excited when Linda Callahan chose this shape for the sketch. What you do with it and the orientation is wide open, so have fun!

I took advantage of the longer card front to create a big text sentiment with The Stamp Market Skinny Upper Alphabet dies.

The sentiment is finished with "sending" and "wishes" from SSS Christmas stamps heat embossed on tags and placed in opposite corners. The other two corners are rounded for interest and a scatter of sequins add a festive touch.

I hope you are inspired by the Clean Team to play along with us this week!

Freshly Made Sketches #445

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #445!

Jen Mitchell has designed a really fun sketch for us this week! I wanted a tone-on-tone subtle circle element and created it by layering a cloud stencil over a circle stencil, blending an aqua ink that matches the cardstock.

A Pretty Pink Posh Encouraging Greetings is stamped in teal and then a line of Spellbinders Birds on a Wire added. Two of the birds are popped up with foam adhesive for a bit of interest.

Check out the terrific Clean Team cards for more inspiration and play along with us!
