{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!

CS Make It Take It: Take a Stamp Challenge

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of November.

This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:

Tis the season (TIMI)

Here is how I created it:

  1. I used Mama Elephant’s Femme Frames to die cut the front to card panels.
  2. I stamped the mouse with the candy cane from Your Next Stamp Merry Mouse Set One on the white card panel with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.
  3. I used Copic Markers to color in my image: R37, R39, R89, R17, YG17, YG67, G28, C3, W3, and Colorless blender pen.
  4. I added some Holly Berry Gumdrops to the front of my card.
  5. I taped down the red card panel and used foam tape on the back of the white card panel.
  6. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the candy cane and bow.

Here is the close up of that shimmer candy cane and bow:

Tis the Season close up (TIMI)
