CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge Inspiration

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 January.

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:


This image, Tiny Townie Penelope Has a Pencil is from Stamping bella and I think its the cutest thing!!  I created a pack of 5 cards to give away to a friend.

I stamped the image in the bottom right hand corner and then colored the image with Copic markers.

Here are the colors that I used:

Pencil: C4, C6, RV11, RV13, V95, Y21, Y19, YR23, E30, E31, W4, W9

Skin:E00, E11, E23,

ShirtB12, B14, B37,

Skirt: R24, R46, R59

Super fun to color!


We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for January is: Dail Art!

CASology 162 – Write

Second post for today

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

I have to say I really love this week’s cue card.  I love to write but handwriting is the worst!!  LOL!!  I wish I took penmanship classes more seriously when I was in grade school.

I just hated writing, “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog“. Do you remember writing that over and over and over again.  I never understood why we had to write that.  The reason is, that sentence contains every letter in the alphabet!!  Writing it, allowed us to write every letter!!!

We had a entire penmanship book.  The pages were similar to this but with more space to write:


If I knew what I know now, right, LOL!!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 162 - Write

Take a look at my card:

Pratice Makes Perfect (CAS)

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I used Papertrey Ink’s Pencil Me In Patterned Paper to create my card front.
  2. After that I used Papertrey Ink’s Pencil Me In Die to cut out my pencil.  I adhered all of the pieces together using Plus Glue Tape Runner.
  3. Then I used Papertrey Ink’s Lunchbox Notes Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink on the card front and pencil.
  4. I used a black pen and scribbled in the line below the pencil.

Super fun and simple!!

Here are some closer looks:
