{Clean and Simple} – Cloth

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

city girls retail therapy

Super fun right?  The cue card this week is fun and playful.  Clothes we need them don’t we.  They come in all different colors and styles to fit everyones needs.

The Ton’s City Girls: Retail Therapy is the perfect stamp set for the challenge this week.  All I did was stamp the young lady three times and then the sentiment using Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Black Ink.  Then I used Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers to watercolor the dresses.

Since the space is so small and these markers are so vibrant I use the tip to tip technique with my the marker and paint brush.  I touch the tip of the marker with the paintbrush to color the top and midline of the dress with no dilution.  Then I dipped the tip of the paint brush in water and pulled the color down to the bottom of the dress.

I used a number 1 brush as to not go out of the lines.  Easy Breezy!!

What do you think?

Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!

Layered – Where Creativity Meets C9

Second post for today

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Layered!

Take a look at my card:

turnabout stamp set

To create this card, I used Concord & 9th Oh, Hello Turnabout stamp set paired with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Die Inks.

  1. I followed the directions on the back of the stamp set packaging as to ensure that I stamped correctly on my card panel.
  2. I used 3 different color inks from Clearsnap to stamp each turnaround.
  3. When using this stamp set, once you stamp the first set, you turn the cardstock not the stamp to make the right stamp marks.
  4. Once card panel was completed,  I die cut a piece of vellum using a circle die.
  5. Then I stamped the main sentiment using Versamark and added white embossing powder. Heat set.
  6. Adhere the vellum to the card front using foam dots.

Super quite and easy.  I love this stamp set for the sentiments included.  They are so powerful and encouraging.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

How to Display Fatherly Love with Deflecto Display Blocks

Hello, everyone!!! I’m here today to show you a how to display fatherly love with Deflecto’s Acrylic Display Blocks and Square Risers.

Father’s Day is around the corner and Dad’s are pretty easy going when it comes to gifts. At least my dad.  He is older now and just wants some peace and quit.  All of his children are all grown so its his time to rest!!  Or so he thinks, LOL!!
This year I decided to give him a gift that matches my mom’s gift.  Pictures of his grown children displayed differently.
Let’s take a look:
deflecto blocks and risers

This display will set on his desk in his room.  I can’t wait for him to see it.  He sits there to read his paper and write out his lotto numbers.  Now he will see his children there to as well.

Let’s take a look at these cute Deflecto projects closer:

First up are the Acrylic Display Blocks.

deflecto blocks and risers
  • They come in two sizes: 4 x4 and 3 x 3.
  • They are highly polished, clear solid blocks.
  • They can be used as a paper weight, a display tray or a turned into a shadow box like display (which is what I did above).

I simple adhered the photo to the back of the block and added stickers to decorate it.

Second up are the Acrylic Display Risers.

  • They come in a set of three.
  • They differ in size so that they fit right underneath each other for storage.
  • The sizes are 9″ x 5.75″, 8.50″ x 5″ and 8″ x 4″.
  • Made of heavy duty clear polished acrylic.
  • Great for displaying anything in your home or office.

I decorated them with a sticker that wasn’t to overbearing that my father would appreciate.  The display blocks fight right on top nicely.

I know my dad will be surprised by his fathers day gift.  Something different that will make him smile.

Both projects are nice clean and simple!!

So what do you think? Will you use the blocks or the risers to display items in your home or office? I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired here today.
