{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!

Summer Fun with Your Next Stamp!!

Hello everyone!!  Its Feature Week on the YNS blog this week and the theme is Summer Fun!!  I LOVE the summer!!  It is the best time of the year for me.  The weather is fantastic and I get to stay outside and grill!!  Perfect for me!!

This week the Design Team has been challenged to create a project that is all about summer fun.  I wanted to used the Zero Calories stamp but wasn’t sure what to do.  As I was sitting at my desk, a new youtube video popped up in my cue and it was Nichol sharing how she created a watercolor card using a set of popsicles.  I couldn’t believe it.   I watched it and said yes, she gave me an idea.

Take a look:

Happy Hugs (YNS)

Inside of creating a card, I decided to create a postcard that could go right in the mail.  I too decided to watercolor my popsicles. I used Tombow Dual Brush Markers Primary and Brights to watercolor.  I’ve never used them in this way before so this was fun.

I simple stamped the images with Versamark ink and covered them with Clearsnap Colorbox® white embossing powder.

Then I heat set it.

After that was set, I used Tombow’s Dual Brush Markers to watercolor the popsicles.

Then I let the postcard air dried before attaching the happy die cut.  I adhered that die cut with liquid glue.

Then I realized I didn’t watercolor the sticks, so I went back in and watercolored around the die cut.

I added the gumdrops and that was that.

This postcard is on it way to a friend.  I hope she likes it.

What do you think? Would you give this technique a try? I would love to hear from you below.

I’m all entering Virginia’s View Challenge!

My favorite set from this release is the Sports Fanatics – Lacrosse stamp set! I shared my tags yesterday. My son plays lacrosse and this set was made just for me, LOL!!

Are you ready for my big reveal?

Take a look at my cards:

Card 1:

Sending Snuggles

YNS Supplies: Snuggles

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Recollections Heavyweight White Cardstock

I love how simple this stamp set it.  It shows the love between a mother and child or even a father and child!!

My card size was to wide for the stamp set so I used portion of the stamp so that the image stretch from one side to the other. I used Copic Markers to color this image in.  Nothing to fancy.

Card 2:

So Very Happy For You (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Happy Everything, Circus Fun Matte Gumdrops, Circles Die Set, Circles Stitching Marks Die Set

Other Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Pixie Paints Ruby, Cosmo Cricket Pixie Paints PoolRecollections Heavyweight White Cardstock, Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, 3M Foam Tape

This stamp set is very playful, so why not watercolor with it.  I just received some new Cosmo Cricket Pixie Paints so I wanted to try them with this stamp set.

I stamped the sentiment, heat embossed it then watercolored on top of it. Super pretty!!
