CASology Week 313: DRESS

Welcome to Week 313 at CASology!




My plan was to make an origami dress with patterned paper for this week's card fell apart as I just couldn't get my fingers to crease & fold the paper as needed. So I went to plan B and love the way my dress turned out.




After a few tries, a piece of lightly glittered vellum survived to make the skirt and a freehand top was cut from glitter paper. The scalloped velvet ribbon was perfect for finishing off this elegant little number. The feminine sentiment comes from an old MFT stamp set, a la Mode Cheers.




The design team has a outdone themselves this week!

CASology Week 312: HEAL

Welcome to Week 312 at CASology!




There are many different ways to take this cue word and I anticipate a gallery full of sympathy and get well cards, along with a few related to new shoes!




I pulled out Papertrey Ink's Stuck On You stamps and dies and die cut three vellum bandages. The back of the die cuts were colored with a Copic R20 marker and a white center panel was adhered. The sentiments and a vellum heart were added to the front of the bandages before they were adhered to the card front.




I always have a couple of bandages in my wallet and one saved the day on a recent vacation when my shoe fell apart.




The design team has terrific cards this week!

MIM334 + Seize the Birthday & CTS287 + PSC#48 + SSS Anything Goes

After a month long separation, I'm so happy to be reunited with my craft room and even happier to have a couple of cards to share today.

This first one is inspired by Lexi Daly's Glitter Inlay challenge for PTI's Make It Monday #334 and Seize the Birthday.

The sticker paper was cut slightly bigger than the Text Block birthday die cut. After the die cut was adhered, a trio of glitter colors were poured over the panel and worked into all the nooks and crannies created by the letters.



The finished panel is popped up on a white card base.




This second card is inspired by the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch #287, along with the Anything Goes challenges at both Poppystamps (PSC#48) and the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.




A trio of Mama Elephant Party Kit balloons provide the rectangle element of the sketch, with the angled Poppystamps Happy Birthday Melody die stretched across the panel.
