{Clean and Simple} – Swoon

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:

For this week’s cue card I really wanted to have the Swoon affect, so I used ET Cetera Paper Glitter Paper in Champagne and Stampin Up Painted with Love DSP paired with The Stamp Market Love Die.

Take another look:

Take a look at that paper, it comes with glitter already and it doesn’t rub off in your hand.

Take an even closer look:

Now look at that bling on the die cut letters.  Swoon!!

Super simple and easy.

What do you think?

We R Memory Keepers Square Punch Board Review

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the new We R Memory Keepers Square Punch Board Review!!

I love all of We R Memory Keepers punch boards. They are easy to use and convient! I needed to see for myself whether or not this one would hold up the punch board reputation.

Let’s get started:

The Square Punch Board can punch squares in a lot of different sizes from 3/4 by 3/4 to 3 by 4!

No need for different handheld punches in different square sizes now.  Its all in one tool!!

Square Punch Board

Here’s how to use:

  1. Slide the guides at the top and on the side to the measurement you want.
  2. Slide the paper in into the tool along the guides and punch.
  3. The cut square will fall underneath the tool to allow you to continue cutting.

Its easy as one-two-three!!

What do I think?

I love it!! I recommend it to everyone who loves cutting out squares.

  1. This punch can cut multiple sizes with one punch vs. the handheld punches that cuts one size.
  2. It cuts rectangle too!
  3. The guides move with easy across the tool.
  4. The measurements are clearly labeled at the top, bottom and the side of the punch.
  5. The measurements are listed in inches and centimeters.
  6. The price is reasonable.
  7. The bottom has four silicone feet that stops the punch from sliding, even on top of a glass surface.
  8. The punch weights about a pound to a pound and a half.

Here’s how I used my cut pieces:

Square Punch Board

I created cards that I could use in my planners to encourage me everyday.

After I cut the different sizes, I added some stickers to each cut piece.

Then I used the Planner Pouch Board to cut the holes that match my mini planner. If you missed that review, you can view it here.

Planner Punch Board

Each card fits nice and neat in my planner.

So what do you think?  Would you add this square punch board to your list of must have tools ?  I would love to hear from you.  Leave a comment below.

The Ton 3rd Anniversary Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!!  The Ton 3rd Anniversary Release Blog Hop is underway and it’s amazing. I made it back from Creativation just in time to participate in the hop so I’m excited.

If you arrived here from The Ton blog then you are on the right track.  If you arrived here on your own, you will want to start at the beginning, The Ton blog, as to not miss any of the amazing projects!

The Ton released 22 new stamps for their 3rd Anniversary which includes up to two free gifts with purchase (Daisy Duet and Peony Notes Bundle A+B+C). For more information on The Ton’s incentive gifts, head over to the The Ton’s blog.  All new release products are available now!!

Lets jump in:

Card One:

City Building

The inspiration for this card came from an artist I met at Creativation on Monday.  His use of colors and water was amazing on a large background stamp.

So, for my first card I used the City Buildings Cling Background stamp to create a subtle multicolor background topped with a sentiment from the Seriously Amazing stamp set.

City Building

For the sentiment to pop off of the card, black embossing powder was added on top and heat set. Add a couple of gumdrops to finish the card off.

Card two:

XOXO

For my second card, I used the XOXO Mini stamp set to create a clean and simple Valentine’s Day card.

Use 4 different distress ink colors to create the pink ombre look.  Once thats done, stamp both sentiments using the MISTI and black ink.  Make sure the sentiment is dry, then stamp the sentiment again using Versamark ink.  Add black embossing powder and heat set the sentiment.

City Building

Add a couple of gumdrops to finish the card off.
