It your looking for the Right At Home post, click here

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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 185 - Egg (1)

When I saw this cue card, I thought of the Living Magazine I saw standing in line at the supermarket.  I had to snap a picture of it.

FullSizeRender (38)

Look at how pretty those easter eggs look! This was the inspiration for my watercolor easter egg.

Take a look at my card:

Sending Easter blessing

Creating this card was very easy.

I created a watercolor panel using my new Tombow Yo-i Crayons. These crayons are water soluble so its easy to play with.

Yo-i coloring

All I did was add color to the white cutting board. Then use the wet paintbrush to pick up the color and add them to the wet Arches watercolor paper.

Super easy and fun.  You add color according to what you want.  I love the softness of my palette since its an egg for Easter.

Then I used Your Next Stamp Stitched Ovals Die Set to create cut out an large oval shape that looks like an egg.

I used Right At Home Hoppy Easter Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment right in the middle of the egg.

I adhered the egg to the Recollection Heavyweight Black card base with 3M Foam Tape.

To finish my card off, I rounded the corners with the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.

All done!!

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 151 – Kids

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

This week’s cue card is super cute and sweet.  You will have fun with this cue card!

This week’s cue card:

Week 151 - Kids

I had so much fun creating cards for this challenge.  Yes, I couldn’t just make one, I made four!!

Take a look at my card:

Kids Card 3 (CAS)

Isn’t this card just the cute card you’ve seen today!!!  I created these cards for my daughter and nieces.  They always want to play with my stamp sets and inks.  So I decided to create these so they can color their own card and give it away.

You can also send this card to a well deserving recipient who can color their own card!  I would love to receive a couple of these.

Kids Card (CAS) 4

My nieces will have fun when they see these.

To create these were super easy:

1. I cut my base card to 3-3/4 by 10-2/16 scored at 5-1/16.

2. My card panel was cut using Mama Elephant Femme Frames.

3. I used my Misti to stamp So Suzy Stamps Bear With Honey multiply times with My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

4. I used Papertrey Ink Write Stuff Holders Die to cut a crayon holder twice on each card.

5. I pushed the crayon through the holes and that was that!!! What do you think?

I Love Back To School, Do You?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with the DoubleClick Skittles Back to School Challenge!!  This will be so much fun!

I love back to school.  I love new paper, pencils, pens, notebook, glue, OMG I love everything.

This is our second challenge and I wanted to say to everyone who participate in the first, Thank You so much.

This challenge runs for two weeks.  This is the second of the two.  So, you have one week before the challenge ends.

Now on to my card for this challenge:

Skittles Back to School

My daughter has her first male teacher this year so I wanted to make sure my projects were male centered.  This is challenging to me since I’m so use to making cute girly things, lol.

Want to know how to make this card, well here’s how you do it:

1. I cut my card stock so that is measures an A2 size card (4-1/4 x 5-1/2 scored at 5-1/2).

2. I used my Big Shot and Stampin’ Up! Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create the the texture on the front of my card.

3. I used my Project Life Lined Journaling Cards for the first time ever, LOL.  I love these little cards.  (I have no idea what my resistance was but its over.) I divert!

4. I stamped my crayon, glue, paintbrush and ink from the Sweet Stamp Shop Artsy Fartsy Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

5. I used my Copic Marker #G07, YR16, V17, B14, R27, G28, Y19, Y13, B12 to color in all of my images.  (I’m so happy about that.  I’m trying to practice my coloring.)

6.  I stamped my sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Hey Teacher Stamp Set using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

7. I added color to my apple using my Copic markers.

8. I adhered my journal card to my card base using foam adhesive.

9. I  added Wink of Stella to some of the embossed letters and numbers on my card base.

10. To really make my card pop, I added my Pumpkin Skittles to the four corners.

Here’s a close-up:
