{Clean and Simple} CASology 207 – Rough

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

This week’s cue card:

Week 207 - Rough

Take a look at my card:

Life story (CAS)

This week’s cue card is Rough!!  I have to admit I was having a hard time with this word.  How do I make a card that is CAS but still rough.  I decided to use an embellishment as my focal point.

So what does my card say about the cue card?  Well, the circles were created with Peony Pink Nuvo Mousse and Clarity Stencil Jo’s Bubbles  I purposely created the circle rough, so that you can see the cue card for yourself.  Then I wonder what sentiment should I use with these rough circles.

I decided to go with Papertrey Ink’s Wet Paint II to stamp the  Life story because life can be rough at times.  Its someone’s story.   At times its mine!!

Creating this card was simple:

I spread the mousse over the circle stencil roughly so that some portions of the circles wouldn’t be smooth.

Then I stamped the sentiment using the Mini Misti.

Nice, simple and still CAS!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

What is Texture?

Happy Friday everyone!!! Today couldn’t get here fast enough.  The week was dragging and cold.  To keep my cool, I joined Addicted to CAS Challenge this week.  Their code word is Texture. How interesting!!  How often do you get a card with texture on it.  Think about it.

So, the question is what is texture?

According to Webster, texture is the visual and especially tactile quality of a surface.  For example a rough texture.

Well that is interesting, who wants a card with a rough texture.  When you think of cards, you think pretty, smooth, subtle, funny, and bright.  So how does texture play apart on a greeting card.

I will show you, take a look at the card I came up with.

Life

Can you say texture?  Yes, you can!! Guess what, it is rough!!!  It’s a pretty rough card!!

Life side

You can see the thickness of this textured butterfly.

Life close up

I saw Laura Bassen create a card like this and I wanted to give it a try.

1. I die cut 4 butterflies from Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful die cut to create a butterfly stencil.

2. I attached the stencil to my white cardstock.

3.  I mixed two distress inks colors with embossing paste.

4. I spread a thick coat of the color embossing paste over my heart stencil.

5. Once I was done applying the paste, I lifted the butterfly stencil and WALA!!

Have you notice that one of my butterfly antenna’s are missing.  I think that is the beauty of this card and that is why I use the sentiment “Life”!  Life isn’t perfect and sometimes neither are we.

I hope you like my card just as much as I like it.

BTH: My seven year old daughter made a card for this challenge as well, take a look here.
