Hello everyone!!! It’s CASology Tuesday!! We are back again with another Cue Card for you!!
When I saw this cue card I thought of fun under the sun!! Especially since we are covered in snow here. I can’t wait for the sun to start shining bright here.
I created two completed different cards for this challenge.
For the first card I blended 4 different colors to create a beautiful tropical background.
Take a look at my card:
The colors are so pretty!! To create this card:
1. I die cut the circle using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Die.
2. I die cut the buttons turned into “flowers” out using Papertrey Ink Button Stacks Die.
3. I used Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean to create my tropical background.
4. My sentiment is from Lawn Fawn, they sent it to me with one of my orders as a thank you. It was super fitting for this card.
5. I stamped the sentiment then I flagged the thin strip of cardstock. I attached it to my circle using my regular tape runner.
5. I attached my stitched circle and buttons using foam adhesive.
6. I attached Doodlebug Design Sprinkles Birthday Boy enamel dots to the center of the buttons.
I love how that card turned out.
Now onto my second card:
This card is for Kathy’s 30 day coloring challenge. I’ve been practicing my coloring so I wanted to stay with that challenge.
Take a look at my card:
For this card I used a retired Stampin’ Up! image and colored it with Prisma color pencils just to see how the look. I’m ok with this image but I’m not satisfied with it. I want to practice this type of coloring more.
I used Distress Ink Salty Ocean and the sentiment stamp is Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine.
This card fits the tropical theme, the sun, the ocean water, the kids in the sunshine. Who could ask for anything more.
I hope my cards have inspired you to join us this month.
