CASology Week 296: PARENT

Welcome to week 296 at CASology!




My head was spinning with ideas from something for a new parent through to a Mother's or Father's Day card before I finally settled on giving a little parental advice for one of my young adults. The Dylusions Clearly the Right Words sentiment is stamped and heat embossed onto four scraps of colored card stock before being cut apart.




Taking a strip from each color, the sentiment is reassembled in an ombre order from yellow through to a terracotta orange  color. Each strip is adhered at a slightly different height, giving an up and down movement and adding interest to the design. To finish the card off, a wonky heart die cut is adhered below the sentiment.




The design team has fabulous cards this week!

Muse #261 + Color Throwdown #488

The bright spring flowers in Tracey's Muse #261 design really caught my eye this week. I took the  floral spray and sentiment from her design and paired them with the Color Throwdown #488 colors.




The Avery Elle Mother's Day floral image is stamped on a white panel and colored with Copic markers. The top of the image is fussy cut and the rest of the panel trimmed with a stitched rectangle die before the hello sentiment from Avery Elle Brushed is finished with the PTI Simply Spring Borders spring stamp.




The stamped panel is popped up on an aqua polka dot patterned paper panel and a trio of Pretty Pink Posh jewels added to complete the card.

CASology Week 295: BELIEVE

Welcome to Week 295 at CASology!




I put the Poppystamps Do You Believe stamped sentiment front and center for this card by using Versamark and heating embossing on watercolor paper.



A couple of Zig Real Brush markers were used to color the panel. Once the panel was dry, the gloss of the clear embossing was removed by ironing it off the panel. A trio of my newest obsession, Pretty Pink Posh jewels, finishes off the design.



The design team has some terrific cards to inspire you!

CASology Week 294: START

Welcome to Week 294 at CASology!



What kind of START is someone in your life celebrating? A new baby, new marriage, graduation? There are so many options for this week. I did a quick search of my stamp inventory (love, love, love Evernote) to see if I had anything tagged with the word start and was happy to find a few choices.




I was drawn to this PTI Wet Paint III stamp & die set and started searching for an image to anchor the sentiment. My day always starts easier if the sun is shining so I used a SSS Confetti Circle die to make a stencil and inked a sun in the corner of a white panel.




The design team has great cards this week!
