CASology 159 – Aquatic

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

This week’s cue card is all about water and anything pertaining to water!!

Week 159 - Aquatic


Take a look at my card:

Sail away with me (CAS)

Here is how I created this card:

This is a simple one layer card.  I stamped the waves three times, slight on top of each other. Then I stamped the boat right on top of the waves.  I used Copic marker R27 to color in the bottom portion of my boat.

I stamped the main sentiment first then the smaller sentiment last.

That was it!!  A nice card to reproduce!!

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today Guest Designing for The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS)!!  I’m excited about this opportunity!!

Take a look at my card:

You're a lifesaver (TAWS)

I used The Alley Way Kids n’ Caboodle Stamp Set to create this shaker card!!  I had a ton of fun working with this stamp set.


All of the images in this stamp set are cute and chunky!!  Great for coloring!

When I saw the sailboat, I knew I need to make a shaker card.  I also knew I wanted the boat to be in the shaker pocket with the sequin, riding the waves!!  LOL!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my card base to an A2 size card, 4.25 x 5.50.

2. I cut my card panel to the same size.

3. I used Simon Says Stamp Circle Stitched Circle Dies to cut the window in card panel.  I used the same stitched circle die to cut a circle out of a piece of pattern paper.

4. I used the panel as a guide to adhere the pattern circle to my card base.

5. I colored my sailboat with Copic Markers: R35, R37, R89, B24, B32,Y06 then cut it out.

6. I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to create my shaker pocket.  I added my Lucy Adams Blue Topaz Sequin and my colored sailboat in the pocket before sealing it up.

If your unsure how to use the fuse tool to create a shaker pocket, check out this post.

7. I stamped my sentiment from the stamp set in My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

8. Once the pocket was sealed, I adhered it to the back of the card panel and added foam adhesive.

9. I added the panel to the card base and I was done!!!

When you shake the card the boat moves along with the sequin.  It’s super cute.
