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 205 - Chevron

Take a look at my card:

Love Ya(CAS)

I’ve been on a stencil kick for the past two weeks.  Its just so easy to use.

I used Simon Says Stamp Zig Zap stencil paired with Clearsnap Colorbox Fun Ink and a dauber to create the design on the top and bottom of this card.

Then I covered the stenciled portion of the card with Clearsnap clear embossing powder.

After that,  I used Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words to stamp the sentiment in the middle of the card using Versafine Ink.

Nice and easy!

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

Sparkle and Shine Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Sparkle and Shine Challenge!!!  How exciting is this!!! 

Since its the 15th of the month, its time for our new challenge!!!

Here is the inspiration photo that guided us this time around:

February 15_2016

Now take a look at my take on this photo:

You color my world

I had so much fun creating this card.  I received some new craft goodies and couldn’t wait to give them a try.

Check out these cute Tombow Yo-i Crayons.  Oh, they tickle me with cuteness.


These crayons are water-soluble and super easy to use.  They move across the paper with easy.  They can be used on any surface.

Here is how I created this card:

I cut a piece of Arches Cold Press Watercolor paper to 4.25 by 5.50.

Then I embossed the watercolor panel with Stampin’ Up! Chevron Textured Embossing Folder.

After that, I used the Tombow Yo-i Crayons and water to add color to the pattern on the paper.

Put the panel to the side and worked on my sentiment from WPlus 9 Color My World Stamp Set.  I love this stamp set.  It is fun and playful.  It goes perfect with my Crayons.

My color palette (SSS)

These colors moved across the cutting board with easy.  The colors were super vibrant as well.

Once I was finished with the sentiment.  I used a circle die to cut out the sentiment and a piece a Recollections Heavyweight Black Cardstock.

I adhered them together with Tombow Extreme Adhesive.

I added them to the card front with 3M Foam Tape.

To finish the card off, I add some Your Next Stamp Black Gumdrops for my bling.

Nice and easy!


That fun!!

CASology 156 – Line

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

This week’s cue card is super simple!!  The shortest distance between to points is a straight line!!!

This week we are all about lines!!

Week 156 - LineTake a look at my card:

Thank you (CAS)

I went with Chevron lines!! Those embossed chevron lines are totally amazing.

The lines in the banner and the lines in the leaves are a plus!!

Here’s how I created this card:

1.  Cut my card base to an A2 size card, 4.25 x 5.50.

2. I used Stampin’ Up! Chevron Embossing Folder to create my card panel.

3. I used Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows stamp set and die set to create my flower and leaves focal point.

4. I used Copic Marker Y32, Y35, Y38, G07, E33, E35, E37 to color the flower and leaves.

5. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and flag the end.

6. I adhered the card panel with fun foam to the card base.  I adhered the leaves to the back of the flower with tape runner and the banner to the card panel with foam tape.

7. I added Clear Wink of Stella the flower.  I added to crystal clear gumdrops underneath the banner for balance.

I love how this card turned out!!  I hope you do to!  Let me know below.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Clean & Simple 3 Card Class – Day 3 Optical Illusion

Yesterday we learned a new technique called optical illusion.  Laura Bassen taught us how to do stamp layering which gives off an optical illusion.  We were taught to start with a subtle background stamp, then bold hues and finish the card with a crisp greeting which will make the whole thing pop.

So, I tried to create a card very similar to that taught in class.  I’m not sure if my card gives the same feel.  I would love it to pop a little bit more.  What do you think?

Take a look at my card:
