CASology 179 – Simple

Second Post for today
If your looking for Home is Where the Heart is Blog Hop, 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 179 - Simple

Take a look at my card:

Sweetheart (CAS)

I love this cue card!!  Simple is so easy, or at least it should be.  The more you think about something simple the easiest it is to make this more complicated.  LOL!!

I had so many thought in my head and decided to go with the stamp set I was already working with.  Its the new stamp set from Right At Home Kiss Kiss!!

As a matter of fact, we are doing a blog hop today, so you can see this set used in different ways here.

To create this card:

  1. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Heart College Die to cut out the stitched hearts in the center of my paper.
  2. I mounted the card panel to the black card base.
  3. Then I die cut the hearts a second time out of Real Red card stock.
  4. I placed them in the white card panel, popping some of them up with 3M foam tape.
  5. Then I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black ink.
  6. I added Clear Wink of Stella to all of the hearts.

Nice and simple!! The hearts look like they are beating sort of! LOL!!

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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 164 - Umbrella

Take a look at my cards:

Love Ya 1(CAS)

My cards has no stamping this time around, only die cutting!!  I love how they turned out.

All I did was die cut the umbrella from Simon Says Stamp Addy’s Spring Showers Die Set out of My Favorite Things Homespun Gingham Paper Pack.

I die cut the card panel using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square Dies in two largest sizes.

Then I used these foam die cut the my good friend Maggie sent to me on Friday. Thanks again Maggie.  I truly appreciate it.  You can find Maggie on Instagram!!  Her handle is @maggieb1983. Check her out.

Maggie told me the The Love Ya Die is from CAS-ual Friday Stamps and it won’t be available until next year for everyone who doesn’t get the Stamp of Approval kits. I have to keep that in mind.

Once everything was die cut, I adhered everything using a Tombow Multipurpose Glue Adhesive.

I placed some fun foam behind my card panel to give it an even lift. Then I adhered the card panel to the card base.

Nice and easy.  I couldn’t make one but two because it was so easy!!

Here they are individually:

CASology 140 – Spring

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

Week 140 - SpringYayyyy!! This cue card makes me happy!!  Spring means sunshine, warmer weather, birds chirping, my BIRTHDAY (April 4) and rain!!  LOL, yes rain! Spring brings a lot of rain.

So, for my card I thought of rain.  Take a look at my card:

Happy Spring (CAS)

I just love this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  Abby is so cute!! I couldn’t wait to sit and color her! Look at that umbrella!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my card base to 4.25 x 5.50, scored at 4.25.

2. I stamped Abby and the umbrella from Simon Says Stamp Abby’s Spring using My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

3. I used Copic Markers to color Abby and her umbrella.

R24, YR68, Y06, G17, E00, E23, E11, E21, E33, E37 and W5.

4. I used the Simon Says Stamp Spring Showers Wafer coordinating die to cut out Abby and the umbrella.

5. I placed Abby and the umbrella down on my card base and covered them with Simon Says Stamp Raindrop Stencil. I used post-it tape to hold the stencil in place.

Masking Abby off

6. I took my time and pounced Distress Salty Ocean Ink onto the raindrop stencil without touch Abby or the umbrella.

7. I stamped the sentiment and adhered Abby and the umbrella with foam adhesive.

Super doper easy and fun.  I didn’t do much blending.  I just colored and that was stress relieving for me.

So what will you come up with? I can’t wait to see!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here again with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique for our February Challenge.

Our theme is Stenciling!!! No specific stenciling technique, just make sure you use a stencil somehow, somewhere on your project.

Remember, if you do not have stencils, cut or punch shapes from a piece of cardstock or acetate and use that as a stencil.

Take a look at my inspiration project:

Peak-a-Boo Easter Wish

Take a look at my colorful background!!

Lets take a closer look:

I colored my little chick with Copic Markers:Y15, Y17, Y19, B00, B02, B04, R20 and R22.

I stamped my So Suzy Stamps “Easter Wishes” sentiment with Memento black ink.

CASology 133 – Love

Hello everyone!! Its that time of the week again!!  CASology time!!

The cue card word this week is so fitting since Valentine’s Day is this Saturday.  Can you guess the word is this week?

Take a look:

Week 133 - Love

What is love!! When I was a kid there used to be a comic in the LA Times called Love Is….. totally my favorite comic.  I used to clip the comic everyday.  I’m not even sure why we received the LA Times, I lived in Brooklyn.

When I saw the word “Love”, my thoughts went straight to this comic!  So I wanted to sure one with all of you.

 

Love IsThese are the cutest comics ever.  That heart made me smile so I decided that I wanted hearts on my card.

Remember my watercolor panel I created a couple of days ago?  I punched a couple more hearts out of it to used on this card.

Watercolor piece 2

Take a look at my card:

Saranghaeyo

I love how this card turned out.  The idea came from Laura Bassen,  she used her sewing machine to attached her hearts to the card panel.  I didn’t think my needle would go through the paper so I used glue to hold them in place.

Lets take a closer look at those hearts:

I love you closeup1

Can you see the gold shimmer on that heart that’s in focus? I love how that turned out.

I love you closeup2

Beautiful watercolor

I love you closeup3

I stacked those hearts in threes and pinched them so that they are raised.

I love how the sentiment nestles right up to the hearts!  Are you wondering what my card says?

Saranghaeyo means I  Love You in Korean.  The stamp set is Waffle Flower Craft DT Mix Stamp Set.

Nice clean and simple!!  What do you think?

Check out what my fellow DT Members have created!!
