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:


Creating this card was a snap!  All I did was ink (Studio Calico Bronze Ink)  the rings from Papertrey Ink Drips & Dribbles Stamp set and stamped them using generation stamping. Then I added the sentiment using Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Wick Ink.

Our Next Stamp February 2016 Blog Hop


Hello everyone!!  Yayyy, I love this blog hop featuring new products from Your Next Stamps makes squeal!! LOL!!

This release is super cute!!  Yesterday’s sneak peek was fun.

If you’ve been hopping along, you would have arrived from Kendra‘s blog and if you’d like to start from the beginning, you can click on over to the linky at the bottom of this post and start at Tracy’s blog.

My favorite set from this release is the Celebrate Sweetness stamp set! I showcased that card yesterday during the sneak peek.  If you didn’t see it here it is.

Are you ready for my big reveal?  For this first set, I made two cards to inspire you!

Take a look at my card:

Your the cream (YNS)

Coffee is the boss (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Coffee is the Boss

Other Supplies: Copic Marker, Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencil, Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock, My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink

Creating this cards was super simple.  I used my Mini Misti and laid all of the stamps on the front of the card and stamped at one time. Super simple and super easy.  Then I just took a Copic marker and a Polychromous pencil and colored the images in.  I added the rhinestones and Clear Wink of Stella to finish the card off.

Note: For the second card, I masked off the mug to stamp the coffee ring under the mug.

My third card:

Have a sweet day (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Sprinkles Sugar Rush, Black Gumdrops, Crystal Clear Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock, Copic Markers, Recollection White Cardstock, Mama Elephant Femme Frames, My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink, 3M Foam Adhesive

This card was also easy to create.  I used Mama Elephant Femme Frames to die cut the rectangular card panel out of the white cardstock.  Then I stamped the sentiment and lollipops using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink because I colored the images with Copic Markers.  After that I added the black gumdrop to the bottom of the lollipop stick.  To adhered the card panel to the card base, I used 3M Foam adhesive.  To finish the card off, I added two clear gumdrops on opposite sides of the white card panel.

So what do you think?  I had so much fun creating these cards to inspire all of you and show you the versatility of the stamp sets! Which one of these items are favorite?  I would love to hear from you!

Your Next Stamp December 2015 Sneak Peek

Hello everyone!!! I’m back again for this month’s Your Next Stamp Sneak Peek!!

We are getting ready for our December Release Blog Hop tomorrow with a sneak peek today. Are you excited? I am!!

Take a look at my card that I’m giving you a sneak peek of:

Coffee Splats (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Coffee Rings and Coffee..Right Meow!

Other Supplies: Retired Stampin’ Up! DSP, Distress Ink Vintage Photo, Distress Ground Espresso, Recollection Black Cardstock

How many time have you sat your coffee down on your newspaper and/or papers and when you pick it up, these rings are left behind?  I’ve seen it time and time again.  I thought this card was so appropriate for individuals who this happens too.

For this card, I simple sponged the DSP with Vintage Photo and stamped my rings and sentiment with Ground Espresso Ink.
