CASology 134 – Monochrome and Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday and you know what that means!!

We have a new Cue Card for you! This week the cue card is Monochrome.

Week 134 - Monochrome

What is Monochrome?  I wasn’t sure so I had to look it up in the dictionary.

According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Monochrome describes paintings, drawings, design, or photographs in one color or shades of one color. A monochromatic object or image has colors in shades of limited colors or hues. Images using only shades of grey (with or without black and/or white) are called grayscale or black-and-white.

Interesting, right – but I still wasn’t sure what I could do that would be CAS.  So, I took to Pinterest for a visual.

Take a look at what I found:

When I saw this dress, I knew exactly what I wanted to create.

Take a look at my card:

Confidence is

Happiness Is

How fabulous are these cards!!  Women love dressing up and getting their hair done.  Our vote of confidence rises when we look and feel pretty.

Key word “feel”, that goes with our “Confidence”!!  Once we are confident within ourselves, nothing can stop or make us feel less then.  So when we put on these pretty black dress and nice shoes, we shine double time.

So do you want to know where to find these awesome stamps?

They are from So Suzy Stamps!!  The owner and I met on Instagram (I love Instagram)!!  She wanted to know about some of the embellishments I was using on my cards.  So we got to talking, (more like stalking, LOL) and I found her store all before 9 in the morning!

The “Confidence is Sexy” stamp was the first thing I saw and was hook from there.  I order two of these stamps, one for me and another for my friend in Switzerland.  Then I found out that sentiment went with these pretty black dress and knew they needed to be displayed.

The Wedding Dress and the Black Slinky Dress are perfect for this challenge.

So Suzy Stamps are manufactured in the USA, are made with the traditional red rubber, the foam is indexed and every single stamp tells a story, has a meaning and are all oh So Suzy!!

Guess what???  Suzy was gracious enough to allow me to do a giveaway!!!  Yayyy!!!

I’m giving away the Black Slinky Dress stamp to a random winner who leaves me a comment below letting me know what gives you confidence!

So, now its your turn, so go and create something Monochrome!!!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Forever Elegant…

Hello everyone!  It’s been 4 days since my last post.  I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been able to sit and talk to all of you.

I’m here today with CAS(E) this Sketch #81.  They have done pairing up with Fusion this week for an amazing joint challenge that is very pretty and elegant to me.

I decided that I wanted my card to be elegant and very clean and simple.  I’m so glad to see a butterfly in this sketch because PTI Life is Beautiful die is my favorite die to work with.  The butterfly is very elegant to me.

Take a look at my interpretation of the sketch:

Elegant Forever

So what do you think?  I just love how my card came out.  The gold is and white looks great to me.
