CASology 140 – Spring

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back again with another Cue Card for you!!!

Week 140 - SpringYayyyy!! This cue card makes me happy!!  Spring means sunshine, warmer weather, birds chirping, my BIRTHDAY (April 4) and rain!!  LOL, yes rain! Spring brings a lot of rain.

So, for my card I thought of rain.  Take a look at my card:

Happy Spring (CAS)

I just love this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  Abby is so cute!! I couldn’t wait to sit and color her! Look at that umbrella!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my card base to 4.25 x 5.50, scored at 4.25.

2. I stamped Abby and the umbrella from Simon Says Stamp Abby’s Spring using My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

3. I used Copic Markers to color Abby and her umbrella.

R24, YR68, Y06, G17, E00, E23, E11, E21, E33, E37 and W5.

4. I used the Simon Says Stamp Spring Showers Wafer coordinating die to cut out Abby and the umbrella.

5. I placed Abby and the umbrella down on my card base and covered them with Simon Says Stamp Raindrop Stencil. I used post-it tape to hold the stencil in place.

Masking Abby off

6. I took my time and pounced Distress Salty Ocean Ink onto the raindrop stencil without touch Abby or the umbrella.

7. I stamped the sentiment and adhered Abby and the umbrella with foam adhesive.

Super doper easy and fun.  I didn’t do much blending.  I just colored and that was stress relieving for me.

So what will you come up with? I can’t wait to see!

Watercolor Easter Card

Hello everyone!!  I’m on the Top Dog Dies Blog today with another card that I created using one of their new dies.

Were do you draw your inspiration from?  I look everywhere for inspiration.  On my way to work, while at lunch, at my workplace, the internet,  while on the train and most certainly while I’m outside.  Their are so many things we missed because we never take the time to observe the world around us.

For my card today, I used a gift card that was given to me by my sister who works at Starbucks. Anytime she sees creative things that she likes, she brings them to me because she wants me to recreate what she sees.

Check out the gift card:

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my cardstock to an A2 size card, 4.5 x 5.5.

2. I stamped my image from Mama Elephants Three Amigos.  I love this stamp set.  These little guys are so cute.

3. I used Copic Markers to color this little guy in.

Shadow: W1

4. I used my Copic multiliner 0.3 to draw the squally line around my card.

5. I tied Stampin’ Up! Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the top of my card.

Copic Coloring

Hello everyone!!  I’m here to share one of the cards I created for Kathy’s 30 day coloring challenge.

I used the new Lawn Fawn Gleeful Gardens stamp set to create my card.

Check out my card:

I love you so mush

I’m so excited about this card.  I really love how my coloring turned out.  I’ve been really trying to master my Copics and I finally feel like I got it.

Thanks to all of my Instagram friends for the encouragement and guidance.

I used Copic R24, R27, R29 and R89.  I’m loving that R89!!

I used Copic E47 and E49 for the stem.

I used W1 for the shadowing.

I added Your Next Stamp Clear Gumdrops. I’m obsessed with these.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the top of the mushrooms.  So pretty in person.

Take a look at some of the photos I shared on Instagram to get me to my finished card.

CASology 139 – Style

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!! We are back again with another Cue Card for you!!

Week 139 - Style

Ok, Ok, I know!! I thought the same thing too when I saw this cue card.

What in the world is “STYLE” and how does it relate to cardmaking?

Well lets look up what style means:

Style may refer to: Style is a phenomenon that gives birth to an art or architectural motif that distinguishes one era from another

Ok, this is a pretty interesting definition.  What do you do with this?

Sooo, I decided to go with Style (visual style), style in art and painting.

Take a look at my card:

Happiness is you

These flowers look like they were painted on my card front!!  Very elegant and very stylish!!

That’s my interpretation and I’m sticking to it!!

To create this CAS card:

1. I cut my card base to an A2 size card, 4.25 x 5.50 out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock.

2. I stamped Hero Arts Leafy Vines with Vesamark Ink and add Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

3. I heat set the embossing powder.

4. I used Your Next Stamp Whatnot Sentiment Set Four to stamp my sentiment in Versafine Oynx Ink.

5. The top of the card seem somewhat bear so I added Your Next Stamp Crystal Clear Gumdrops for added interest.

So what will you come up with?  I can’t wait to see!
