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!
