Using Pattern Paper to Create a CAS Card

Hello everyone!! I’m here today using pattern paper to create a CAS card. Gossamer Blue is a monthly crafts club dedicated to inspiring and motivation memory keepers and crafters alike.

Each month they come out with 3 different types of kits:

  1. Scrapbook Kit
  2. Life Pages Kit
  3. Planner Kit

Each kit is full of amazing goodies!

Here are some peeks at some of the kits:

Planner Kit Goodies

Life Pages Kit Goodies

 I used the Planner Pages Kit paper to create my card, take a look:

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Cut the card base to 4.25 by 11, scored at 5.50.
  2. Cut the pattern paper to 4.25 by 5.50.
  3. Adhered the pattern paper to the card front using Tombow Mono Adhesive + Permanent.
  4. Using Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Envelope Die cut the small note card out of Bristol cardstock.
  5. Use the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment from The Stamp Market You Are My Fave stamp set on the die cut notecard using Versafine Onyx Ink.
  6. Add 3M foam adhesive to the note card and adhere it to the center of the card front.

Nice, easy and a great way to use up pattern paper.

What do you think? Please let me know below. I would love to hear from you.

{Clean and Simple} CASology 214 – Beach

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

This week’s cue card:

Week 214 - Beach

Take a look at my card:

Hello Friend (CAS)

I have I told you how much I do not like the fall or winter!  I hate being cold and to see the summer end is killing me.  I love how we are using this cue card now!  The weather is changing and its no longer 90 degrees outside.  So going to the beach is about to be in our distant memory.

When I sat down to create my card, I immediately thought of So Suzy Stamps new release. The Beach Grass stamp to be exact!! This stamp set is just perfect for this week’s challenge.

I love how the grass gives the feeling of motion, the nice ocean breeze.  Oh when I close my eyes, I can feel it!  Can you?

Creating this card was easy as 1-2-3!

  • I used a A2 (4.25×5.50) size card base to start with.
  • Then I used the Mini Misti to stamp the Beach Grass stamp set across the front of the card in black.
  • After that I used Concord & 9th Flourish stamp set to stamp the sentiment.
  • Last but not least, I rounded the top right corner for added interest.

Nice and easy, I must say.  I love how the black and white keeps the card elegant.  Concord & 9th sentiment font is so fitting for this card as well.

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

Take a look at my project:

I am women (YNS)

I went with a very clean black and white style card!!  When creating my card, I thought about all of the women in the women in the world that has to prove to everyone that they are capable of doing great things.   This is such a great mantra!

This is a very simple card to create.

The card size is 4 by4 and the front card panel is 3.5 by 3.5.

I positioned the stamps on the card panel and closed my Mini Misti so that I could stamp more then once just in case the ink is splotchy.

I added foam to the back of the panel and adhered that to the card base.

Nice and easy!!

I created another card using an other stamp because it fits the theme as well.

Happy Birthday Surprise!!!

Suzanne's Birthday

 

Hello everyone!  I’m excited about this blog post today.  Today is Suzanne’s Birthday!!  Who is Suzanne, better know as Suzy,  you asked?  Well let me tell you!

She is the owner of So Suzy Stamps and she has no idea that her Design Team is throwing her a Surprise Birthday Blog Hop.

This is the first stop on this hop!!  I’ve listed all of the participants at the end of this post just in case you miss a stop!  Each of the design team members created a birthday card for Suzy to show how much we really appreciate her.

What is a blog hop without some prizes!!  We are giving away a $15 So Suzy Stamps Gift Certificate and a free one month subscription to El Atelier de Stampartpapel to 2 lucky winners who leaves a comment on each of the blogs for a chance to win by February 22nd, 2015 by 11:59pm.   The winners will be chosen at random and announced on Monday, February 23rd at 12noon on the So Suzy Stamps Blog.  The winners will have 2 weeks to claim their prize.

Now onto the card I created for our fearless and super fun leader:

Happy Birthday Suzy

I went with black and white because I love this elegant look.  This picture doesn’t do this card justice.  The Wink of Stella pops on some parts to the card that isn’t captured in the photo.

This is how I created this card:

I cut my black card base to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50).  My card panel is cut to 4 x 5.25.

I embossed my card panel with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel with foam tape.

I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares to cut my small white panel.  Then I used that panel as a guide to cut my smaller black panel.

I stamped the Swirl So Suzy Stamp Medium Cupcake with black ink.  I added a Denim DoubleClick Skittle as the topper.

I added a random strip of ribbon to my card front.  I attached the smaller panels on top of that ribbon.

I added Wink of Stella to random places on my card.

Easy Peasy!!  I hope Suzy loves this card that I made just for her.

So what do you think?  Will she like this card?

Now on to the wonderful and talented Jenny Johnson to see what she has in store for you.

CASology 134 – Monochrome and Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday and you know what that means!!

We have a new Cue Card for you! This week the cue card is Monochrome.

Week 134 - Monochrome

What is Monochrome?  I wasn’t sure so I had to look it up in the dictionary.

According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Monochrome describes paintings, drawings, design, or photographs in one color or shades of one color. A monochromatic object or image has colors in shades of limited colors or hues. Images using only shades of grey (with or without black and/or white) are called grayscale or black-and-white.

Interesting, right – but I still wasn’t sure what I could do that would be CAS.  So, I took to Pinterest for a visual.

Take a look at what I found:

e4c8ae26a3465341edf7558407620810

721808a98336f6954f5ff80e226ac73c

Ralph Lauren Spring 2008

When I saw this dress, I knew exactly what I wanted to create.

Take a look at my card:

Confidence is

Happiness Is

How fabulous are these cards!!  Women love dressing up and getting their hair done.  Our vote of confidence rises when we look and feel pretty.

Key word “feel”, that goes with our “Confidence”!!  Once we are confident within ourselves, nothing can stop or make us feel less then.  So when we put on these pretty black dress and nice shoes, we shine double time.

So do you want to know where to find these awesome stamps?

They are from So Suzy Stamps!!  The owner and I met on Instagram (I love Instagram)!!  She wanted to know about some of the embellishments I was using on my cards.  So we got to talking, (more like stalking, LOL) and I found her store all before 9 in the morning!

The “Confidence is Sexy” stamp was the first thing I saw and was hook from there.  I order two of these stamps, one for me and another for my friend in Switzerland.  Then I found out that sentiment went with these pretty black dress and knew they needed to be displayed.

The Wedding Dress and the Black Slinky Dress are perfect for this challenge.

So Suzy Stamps are manufactured in the USA, are made with the traditional red rubber, the foam is indexed and every single stamp tells a story, has a meaning and are all oh So Suzy!!

Guess what???  Suzy was gracious enough to allow me to do a giveaway!!!  Yayyy!!!

I’m giving away the Black Slinky Dress stamp to a random winner who leaves me a comment below letting me know what gives you confidence!

So, now its your turn, so go and create something Monochrome!!!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
