{Clean and Simple} CASology 230 – Cold

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

This week’s cue card:

week-230-cold

Take a look at my card:

happy-winter-cas

For this week’s cue card I used the snowman and sentiment from the Rubber Dance Stamp Frosty Friends stamp set.  I picked up my Copic Markers again this week.  I actually miss using them so it was fun to play with them for this challenge.

I simple stamped the snowman and the sentiment using the Mini Misti for precision stamping. I love seeing crisp black edges so using the Misti is so important.

I colored the snowman with  BG0000,B000, C4,C6, R37,R39, R89, E37, Y38 and YR68.

Nice and easy!

For this week’s cue card I used Your Next Stamp Cheers stamp set with some Copic markers ( YG03, YG25, YG17, Y38 and YR68) and glossy accents.

I do not drink alcoholic beverages. When I go out with friends I order a fruit juice of some sort and my friends ask the bartender to jazz it up so that it looks like a nice pretty drink.  I laugh all the time.

Cheers!!!!

Sept2016hopbadge

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 Isha’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 Laura’s blog.

My favorite set from this release is the SpookTacular Halloween Stamp Set! Its down below.

Are you ready for my big reveal?

Take a look at my cards:

Card one:

Spok-tacular Halloween

YNS Supplies: SpookTacular Halloween,  SpookTacular Halloween DiesWoodlands Paper Pack, Stitched Frame Dye Set

Other Supplies: Recollections Heavyweight White Cardstock, Colorbox Black Embossing Powder, Copic Markers, Recollections Heavyweight Black Cardstock,Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink

I haven’t used my Copic Markers in such a long time that I had to pull them out for this card. This little guys are so cute and were begging to be colored.

All I did to create this card was cut a 4×4 base card out of the heavyweight black cardstock. Then I used the stitched frame die set to cut out a frame from the Woodlands paper pack.  After that I stamped the sentiment along the four boarders and embossed it with black embossing powder.  Then I adhered the frame to the card front.  Using some Copic Markers, I colored the two images and then die cut them out.  I adhered them to the card front inside the frame with dimensionals.

Super cute.

Card two:

Lunch box notes (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Kids Activity Planning, Stitched Frame Die, Swirly Pattern Paper

Other Supplies:Recollections Heavyweight White Cardstock, Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink, Tombow Irojiten Tranquil and Vivid Coloring Pencil

For these cute little lunchbox notes, I cut the white heavyweight cardstock to a 3×3 size.  Then I die cut the Swirly patten paper out using the small stitched frame die and adhered it to the front of the card base.  Using the Mini Misti, I stamped different images and sentiments from the Kids Activity Planning set and colored them in using coloring pencils.

Easy does it!!  These notes are for my daughter.  I will put one in her lunchbox everyday.

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!
