{Clean and Simple} CASology 203 – Congratulations

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 203 - Congratulations

Take a look at my card:

Congratulation ink splatters

I plan on having fun with this cue card this week.  My son’s big day is this Saturday and he has inspired me!  He is such a great son.  He has stayed focused to the very end.  Good grades and dominate in all the sports he played.  He walks away from high school as an All County Football Player, an All County Lacrosse Player and an All Conference Basketball Player.

INSPIRING right!!

This card is for him!

I used STAMPlorations Art Marks Stamp Set, who happens to be our sponsor  this week, to create this card.

Here’s how:

  1. I stamp the different ink splatters and the stars with Versafine ink.
  2. Then I stamped the sentiment using So Suzy Stamp Plum Passion Ink Bite.
  3. To finish the card off I rounded the top corners using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch board.

Nice and easy!

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

Isn’t this butterfly’s colors pretty! I love it.  This photo reminded me of nature and the fall.  So that is what I went back to.

Take a look at my card:

Thankful For You (WFC)

The colors in the picture reminded me of Lawn Fawn’s Sweater Weather colors.  So I went straight to that paper pack for this card.

To create this card:

It’s pretty straight forward.

1. I dry embossed the front of my card panel with Stampin’ Up! Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Slopes and Hills  Die to cut Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather patten paper to a half circle.

3. I attached Lawn Fawn Trimming to the front of the pattern paper and then adhered the panel to the top of the card base.

4. I stamped my sentiment using Waffle Flower Crafts Holiday Labels – Give Thanks Set with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

5. I added Your Next Stamp Black Gumdrops to tie in the black from the sentiment.

There you have it!! Not hard at all.

So what do you think? Please let me now. Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

I also linking this card to Virginia’s View Challenge #14: Layers and Dimensions.

I paired this set up with my awesome Confidence is Sexy sentiment stamp from So Suzy Stamps.

The pattern paper that I used is Stacked with Love from Stampin Up!

I used Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Embossing Folder to add dimension to the front of my card.

Here is how I created my card:

1. I die cut the corset from black cardstock and the background corset from pattern paper. I glued them together using glue.

2. I die cut the border using one of the boarder dies at the bottom of the my black card front.

3. I added a small piece of pattern paper behind the border die cut with adhesive.

4. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and add white embossing powder and heat set it.

5. I ran my card front through my embossing machine use the polka dot embossing folder.

6. I adhered my corset to the front of my card using dimensionals.

7. I added a rhinestone to the front of my corset.

Super easy and elegant.  So what do you think?  Let me know below in the comment section.

Hello World, How are you?

Hello everyone!  I’m in such a great mood today, I can’t stop smiling.  I’ve been working really hard at my craft and slowly by surely its paying off.  So, I’m really proud of myself.

I’m here today with a card for the Muse Challenge #69. This is my first time playing along with them so I hope I don’t disappoint them.

Cornelia was chosen to create the Guest Muse this week and her card is full of bright colors, a cool technique and FUN!

Here is her card:

Cornelia

My job is to use the Muse card as inspiration and create one of my own.

When I looked at Cornelia’s card, it reminded me of my all time favorite technique, WATER-COLORING!!!  I love how she made the colors mix with one another and the splatters across the card.

So I knew right away that I had to pull out my Koi watercolors.  I decided that I wanted to use colors I hardly use that are bright and will stand out on the black cardstock I wanted to use.

Before I painted, I scored the watercolor paper to give it added texture.

I used colors #3, 12, and 16 to create my sentiment and hearts. You can see the colors on my swatch here.

Like Cornelia’s card I wanted to create a one layer card so I decided to create an inlay card with my sentiment and hearts.  So, I die cut my sentiment and hearts from the watercolor piece.

helloswatch

After I cut out all of my pieces that I need to create my card, I realized that I wanted my card to have a stitch edge so to create that I had to use my large journal stitch die, which in turn cut off a portion of my card.  I was ok with that because I love the stitch edge. That idea came from Nichol Magouirk.

After that cut, my card was no longer a one layer card.  I put all of the piece together and here is what I came up with.

Here is my card:

Hello

I added sequin, enamel dots and rhinestones to resemble Cornelia’s paint splatters.  I choose colors that were close to my watercolor sentiment and hearts.

Sooooo, what do you think? No stamping required. I love how it came out.
