CASology week 215: BARK

Welcome to Week 215 at CASology!

When you saw our cue word this week is BARK, did you think tree or dog first?  My first thought was tree and I started looking through my tree, branch and woodgrain dies, stamps and embossing folders for inspiration, settling on a Sizzix woodgrain embossing folder to take center stage.

After the gray panel is embossed, a sentiment cluster is created with a stamped banner and a trio of MFT leaves.

Check out the Design Team cards for more terrific BARK ideas!

We are looking forward to seeing how BARK 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,



  1. This is fantastic. Love how CAS it is--the focus on texture and colors. I must admit that I did not think any further than my dog, and was shocked to see a card with a tree on it, until I thought a little harder. Guess my mind is all tied up in puppy-town.

  2. So beautifully CAS! I love the colors against the gray!

  3. I thought of tree first too, Jacquie, and I love the texture of that embossed wood background. So simple yet simply beautiful.

  4. Wonderfully CAS card today. I love the stitched woodgrain background and the beautiful fall colors. Great take on the challenge. Love your card.

  5. Love the pop of colours against the woodgrain and the font on the sentiment is awesome!

  6. This is so CAS and the pops of color really work against the texture. Very nice!

  7. Very gorgeous CAS card Jacquie ! I love the contrast between the white background and those vibrant fall colors ! Thanks for sharing.
