{Clean and Simple} CASology 230 – Cold

Hello everyone and Happy New Year CASology Family!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

week-230-cold

Take a look at my card:

happy-winter-cas

For this week’s cue card I used the snowman and sentiment from the Rubber Dance Stamp Frosty Friends stamp set.  I picked up my Copic Markers again this week.  I actually miss using them so it was fun to play with them for this challenge.

I simple stamped the snowman and the sentiment using the Mini Misti for precision stamping. I love seeing crisp black edges so using the Misti is so important.

I colored the snowman with  BG0000,B000, C4,C6, R37,R39, R89, E37, Y38 and YR68.

Nice and easy!
