CASology 138 – Blossom

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

Week 138 - Blossom

When I saw this cue card, I thought of flowers and rain right away.  I ordered a new stamp set and die from Simon Says Stamp that I knew I wanted to use for this challenge.

Take a look at my card:


I love how the rain drops are falling down on my small flower pots that will case these plants to blossom!!

Since the die is so small I repeated the stamp across my card front.

1. I cut my card base to a 4 x 4 card size.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp To Thine Own Shelf to stamp the shelf my plants are sitting on in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Abby’s Spring Showers stamp set to stamp my plants, raindrops and sentiment.

3. The raindrops were stamped using Hero Arts Soft Pool ink.

4. I used Copic Markers: YR68,  Y02, E31, E33, and E35 to color in my images.

5. I rounded the corners.

I think this card is so cute.  I hope you do to!!

Waffle Flower Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Waffle Flower’s 2nd Photo Inspiration Challenge!!

What did you thing of the first challenge?  Those colors were a challenge but not to challenging to some of you!  I love seeing all of the entries.

Are you ready to see our new challenge?  Yayyy, here you go:

Photo Inspiration January 26

Here is my take on this challenge:

Perfect Bloom

Sooo, what do you think?  I totally love this new Planted Stamp Set and the Perfect Word Die from Waffle Flower.

If you know the stamp set, that third potted plant was created using the plant from the first stamp!  Ingenious, is what I say, LOL!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to an A2 (4.25 x 5.50) size card.

2. I stamped the first and second potted plant using Memento Tuxedo Black ink because I wanted to color the images using my Copic markers.

3. I used my Copic markers to color in each plant and pot.  I used the same colors in the photo.

4. For the third potted plant, I stamped the empty post first.

5. Then I created a mask for that pot, so that I could stamp the plant inside.  Then I colored the image.

6. I die cut the word Perfect out of Simon Says Stamp School House Red cardstock 4 times..

7. I stacked them on top of each other so that the die could have some dimension. I adhered the die to the front of my card.

8. I stamped the word “Bloom ” underneath the die cut.

9. I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to the card and that was it.

Super easy card to create. This card allowed me to practice my Copic coloring.

Come on and join us!! Now I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
