{Clean and Simple} – Parent

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

Take a look at my card:

1500 colored pencils

For this card, I used Technique Tuesday Flowers For Mom Stamp Set! It’s just the cutest stamp I’ve seen. I love that little flower. Perfect for coloring.

Here’s how I created this card:

Cut cardstock to 4 x 8, scored at 4.

Use the MISTI to stamp all of the images and sentiment from Technique Tuesday Flowers for Mom stamp set using Altenew Jet Black Crisp Dye Ink.

Color the flower and the butterfly using Tombow 1500 Colored Pencils. They are brand new and layer colors beautifully.

Add just a touch of Wink of Stella glitter to the flower petals and butterfly for an added touch.

To finish the card off, use We R Memory Keepers 3 Way Corner Punch to punch all four corners using the 10mm and the 7mm sides.

{Clean and Simple} – Butterfly

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

Take a look at my card:

For this week’s cue card I used my Paper Artsy Eclectica 3 by Kim Dellow paired with Derwent Inktense Pencils.

Simply stamp the small marking stamp using Altenew Permenant Black Ink in the lower left corner.

Then stamp the butterfly image with the same black ink and watercolor the image using the three colors of your choice with the Derwent Inktense Pencils and spread water with a zero paintbrush.

Let the watercolor dry.

Position the butterfly where you want it so that you could stamp the sentiment.  Once the sentiment from Papertrey Ink Butterfly Hope stamp Set is stamped then adhere the butterfly using Stampin Up! Mini Dimension.

Super simple and easy.

{Clean and Simple} – Cherish

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 cue card I went with Darkroom Door Fine Butterflies Stamp Set paired with Altenew More Than Words Stamp Set.

When I think of the word cherish, I think of something special. Love is special and so are are butterflies.  I thought about leaving the butterfly uncolored but quickly changed my mind.  Watercoloring this image really made the image pop.  I used Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers.

Nice, simple and easy.
