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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 184 - Valentine

Take a look at my card:

Love you (CAS)

Any valentine would love to receive this card. Its super clean and simple.

Its a one layer card that was created with two die cuts and some inking.

I used Your Next Stamp Stripe-tastic Heart Die set to create the heart pattern on the card front.

Then I used my new Clarity Stencils Brushes and Distress Ink Picked Raspberry to add color to the actually card base.

I attached the front card panel with Tombow Extreme Adhesive to the card base creating a one layer card.

To add a sentiment, I used Simon Says Stamp Love You Die to die cut two for added dimension.

To adhered them down, I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to adhered them together and down on the card base.

All done!!

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

Birdie Love Letter…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here with a new challenge that I’ve wanted to play along with for awhile now but haven’t had a chance.  So, today is that day!! I’m a bit excited about it.

The new challenge is Lawnscaping Challenge No. 91: Patterned Paper.  How much fun will this be! I have so much pattern paper that has never been touched.  I’m hoping I can really search my stash an come up with some great cards.

91

I decided to use some of my retired Stampin’ Up! Welcome Neighbor DSP for this challenge.  I have tons of it and this is such a great way to use it up.

Take a look at my card:

I love you so much

Don’t you just love this little birdie!!  I do.  This image is from Gerda Steiner Designs and its called Cute Bird with Letter Digital Stamp.   Gerda’s images are so cute, you must check them out.

I added some new DoubleClick Skittles Sunshine Yellow for added interest.  Are they just the cutest thing you’ve seen.  That yellow color is awesome.

So, I have another first that I can’t wait to share with all of you.  I videotaped myself coloring with my Copic markers!!

Take a look at my very first video. I am truly excited about this.  I’ve wanted to create videos for a long time but was afraid and now I’m super excited about it.

So what do you think?  Let me know.

I Love You Birdie!!

Hello everyone!! I’m here with a brand new stamp company based in Germany called Create A Smile.  They have fun designs, cute images and punny sentiments that you will love.

Blog-Badge

Over on their Create a Smile blog, they are having a Guest Designer Search for their September Release!!

How exciting is that!!  When I saw that, I knew I would love to be Guest Designer for them.  So I created a project with their free digi birdie to be included in the running!

Take a look at my card:

I Love You Birdie

When I saw this little birdie on their blog, I fell in love with him.  He is the cutest bird I’ve seen.  His big eyes pulled me in.

I used Copic marker Y13 and Y19 to color him in.

I fussy cut him out because I wanted him to pop him off of my card.

I created my tag using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 and Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue cardstock.

I stamped my “I Love You” sentiment from Papertrey Ink Building Blocks stamp set in Versafine Black Ink. I added foam adhesive to the back of my birdie and adhered him to the tag.

I used my white gel pen to create eyes on my birdie.

I punched a hole in the top of my tag and add some retired So Saffron ribbon and Tempting Turquoise bakers twine.

For my card base, I used Simon Says Stamp Medium Dots Stencil to create a subtle background with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and my mini distress blending tool on a piece of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.

I added foam adhesive behind my tag and WaLa, I was done.

So what do you think?  Will my card win over anyone’s heart?  I hope so!!

Let me know what you think below.
