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.

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!

Top Dog Dies – Just for you

Hello everyone!!  Its Top Dog Die Wednesday!!  I’m here with a die technique that I learned in my new Online Card Class called Stretch Your Dies!!

Carissa Wiley taught us how to create a window card using a die-cut opening!!  I was super excited when I saw that technique.

I went with Top Dog Dies Decorated Eggs Die Set to create my card today!

TC095-DTake a look at my card:

Just for you (TDD)

How cute is that!!  I used the solid egg die to create that window.

Take a closer look:

Just for you 4 (TDD)

I partial die cut on that egg so that the egg would be a door to my sentiment inside the card.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cute a strip of Lawn Fawn Let’s Polka, Mon Amie patten paper and adhered it to the front of my card front.

2. I placed the die to the right side of the card front.

That’s when I remembered I wasn’t going to be able to partial die cut the egg because my cutting plate was too big and my card could fold or the die cut would go through the whole card.

So I cute my card in half.  Once I’m done cutting my die I will adhere the card panel to the front of a new card front to stay with a one layer card.

3. Before attaching the card panel to my card front, I die cut the egg on my card front so that the card panel matches the card base.

4. I used Papertry Ink  Swoosh Stamp set to stamp my sentiment inside the egg and Technique Tuesday Smile Borders to stamp my sentiment on the strip of pattern paper using Memento Tuexdo Black Ink.

5. I added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear 4mm sequins  and 6mm sequins to added interest.

Just for you 2 (TDD)

So what do you think?  Are you fascinated as much as I was.  Never thought to use my dies in this manner.  This is why I love learning!!
