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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 198 - Stencil

Take a look at my card:

Stenciling with distress inks

I really like this cue card this week.  I love working with Seth Apter Star Stencil and the Clarity Brushes. They help to create very clean and simple cards.

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I cut the cardstock down to an A2 card size 4.25 by 5.50, scored at 5.50.
  2. I placed the stencil on top of the cardstock and used the brushes to apply the Distress Ink Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed.
  3. Then I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Dare to Dream stamp set with Versafine Black ink.

That’s it!!  It takes less then 3 minutes to create this card.

Stenciling with Clarity Brushes

Creating this card was so easy, I couldn’t help myself, made two more cards!!

Second Post for today
If your looking for the YNS Sketch and Color Challenge, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge Inspiration Photo.

Once again this month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:

Hello baby

Isn’t this happy hippo the cutest!! This stamp is from a new company to me called Uchi’s Design!! They are a clear stamps and craft company based in Florida.

I first met Luciana at CHA January 2016 and loved the stamp sets and dies.  We found each other on Instagram and was able to get my hands on this adorable set.

I created yet again an nice clean and simple card.  Here’s how:

  1. I used an A2 card size, 4.25 by 5.50 scored by 5.50.
  2. I stamped the hippo image from Uchi’s Design Happy Hippo stamp set using the Mini Misti and My Favorite Favorite Things Hybrid Ink since I’m going to use Copic Marker to color it.
  3. I used Copic Marker C1, C3, C5 for the hippo and BG11, BG13, BG15 for the balloon.
  4. I used Concord & 9th Sophisticated Script stamp set to stamp the sentiment.
  5. I used Ranger Glossy Accents to give the balloon some dimension.

Nice and easy, right?  What do you think?

Jazzing Up A Planner Using ColorBox Queues

Hello everyone!!  I’m up on the Clearsnap Blog today sharing how convenient and easy it is to jazz up a planner using ColorBox Queues.

I have to admit I’m not really a planner girl.  I’ve tried so many different planners but haven’t really found one that really mets my needs.  I recently bought a planner that I saw so many people talking about.  I liked what I saw so I went for it.

I like it but I don’t use the entire planner as intended.  I only use the pages that fit me.  I ran into a good friend who showed me how she carries her planner everywhere.  She had inks, stamps, pens, pencils, washi tape all in a cute bag for her planner. So I wanted to give it a try.

Take a look at what I’ve come up with:

KT Supplies

Let take a look at how I carry my supplies with me.

Please let me know what you think! I would love to hear from you.

{Clean and Simple} CASology 197 – Tear

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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 197 - Tear

Take a look at my card:

Hello cut 1 (CAS)

Lets take a better look:

Hello cut (CAS)

When I saw the cue card, I thought of tearing paper, but then I thought that wouldn’t be clean and simple.  So I decided to use my paper trimmer to cut the paper to give the tear a nice straight edge, LOL!!

This card can be sealed to be a try one layer card or left open and your message can be on the inside of the card.

I used retired Lawn Fawn Just My Type stamp set to stamp the scissors using Versafine Ink.

Then I used my paper trimmer to cut the paper as if the scissors cut it.

I used my bone folder to bend the paper.

After that, I stamped the sentiment on the inside using the Mini Misti.

Super easy, clean and simple!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Simple Stamping

Hello everyone!!  I’m over on So Suzy Stamps blog today!! I’m sharing how to create a Simple Stamping card!!

Sometimes we are on the go and just need a simple card that is created with much ease.

Take a look at my card:

Hope Hugs Kisses (SSS)

See how simple this card is!!

All I did was use My Favorite Things Stitched Strips die to create the background on the white cardstock.

Then using the Mini Misti, I stamped the Hope, Hugs, Kisses sentiment stamps all at once using Versamark Black Ink.

To add some color to this black and white card, I used Nuvo Crystal Drops Caribbean Ocean to add that interest.

Nice simple and easy.

What do you thing?  Please let me know below!
