Muse #287 + FMS #359

My card was inspired by Kim's beautiful card for Muse #287 and the design of Freshly Made Sketches #359.

Kim's great sentiment came from Skip to My Lou, where I found a fun free printable tag to use as the sentiment on my card.


The Avery Elle Mother's Day image is stamped on the white panel and a scrap of paper. The images are colored with Copic markers and the center three flowers fussy cut from the second image.

The pink panel is adhered over the colored image, the sentiment panel popped up over that and then the flower trio added. This panel was then adhered to a pink card base and the sequins scattered around.

CASology Week 317: MENU

Welcome to Week 317 at CASology!

I had to let this cue word roll around in my head for a while before a trip to Yogurtland this week inspired me to use Lawn Fawn's Sweetest Flavor stamps and dies to create a menu inspired card.

The ice cream image is inked with Versamark, stamped on watercolor paper and heat embossed before being colored with Zig markers. Once these cones were dry, they are die cut and popped up on the sentiment stamped panel.

The design team has more great ideas!

Jacquie Southas (you are here)

Guest Designer: Ishani!

We are looking forward to seeing how MENU inspires you - just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until 9 AM Monday, October 22nd.  (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog.

Twofer: Harvest + Muse #286 + CTD514 + Seize the Birthday AND MCV#110

 I have three cards to share today. The first two were inspired by the Twofer Card Challenge #10: Harvest Challenge.

It is easy to see the Harvest connection with my sympathy card using the fall colors on the leaves. The lily on the birthday card is a bit more of a reach as I thought of planting fall bulbs to harvest spring and summer flowers.

Mama Elephant Freestyle Floral images and PTI Penned Elegance stamps are used on both cards. 

Tracey's Muse #286 card inspired the rectangular wreath of leaves and buds. Copic markers in the Color Throwdown #514 colors filled in the sketchy shapes.


The sentiment is positioned first on the birthday card and then the floral images stamped and masked before being colored with Copic markers. The finished panel is popped up on a purple card base.

This card is being linked to Seize the Birthday where Anything Goes for the current challenge.

My third card is inspired by Cornelia's starry night for Muse ChristmasVisions #110, using the inked sky, trees and sentiment.

The Poppystamps Open Hillside and Snowscape dies are layered for this card. The sky piece of the Snowscape is inked with Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks before being adhered to the card base and the snowflakes inset back in place.

The PTI sentiment is stamped on the Open Hillside die cut before it is layered on the card base.
