{Clean and Simple} CASology 201 – Sunshine

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

Before I jump in with this week’s cure card, let me say THANK YOU to all of you who stopped by my blog and played along with us this week!!  If I can speak for the team, we really appreciate all of the love that each of you showed us.  You make creating a card each week worth it!!  So thank you once again!!

Now this week’s cue card is:

Week 201 - Sunshine

Take a look at my card:

Hello Sunshine (CAS)

Hello Sunshine!! I’m so glad summer is on its way.  I do not like the cold. I hate the cold.  I prefer 85 degree and above weather everyday of the week.

The “Sun” Rubber Dance Art Stamp is perfect for this week’s cue card!!  The sun can shine down on me all day long!!

Creating this card was a snap.

I used the Mini Misti to stamp the sun and part of the sentiment from WPLUS9 Sending Sunshine stamp set using My Favorite Thing Hybrid Black Ink and the last part part of the sentiment using Lawn Fawn Sunflower Ink.

Super easy, clean and simple!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Get Sketchy Challenge

Hello everyone!!  First let me say thank you to all of you for your well wishes for my dad.  We have a long way to go but day by day, we are getting there.  Please continue to pray for him.

While he slept last night, I had a chance to play with some of my craft stuff.  The week before he took sick, I received a lot of WPlus9 goodies that I haven’t had a chance to play with.  So I decided to play along with their Get Sketchy With Joni #1 Challenge.

You are my sunshine

Oh man did I have fun creating this card.  I knew I had to be fast because my dad is dead set on going back to work.  He use to work nights so when 11pm comes he jumps up to go to work so we have to be prepared to stop him.

So, I need to make a card that didn’t require all of my time.  So I decided to make a shaker card and use my We R Memory Keepers Fuse!!

I bought my Fuse some months back from HSN when they had the bundle for a great price.

I’m not sure why I bought it, maybe the price was right but in any case, I’m glad I bought it.

So last night, I opened the package an started to play.

Take a look:

Fuse at work

Jennifer McGuire used her fuse to create a shaker card and I knew I wanted to give it a try.  Check out my circle that was created using one of the photo sleeves that came with my fuse.

I used my circle die as a guide to fuse the plastic together.

Check out my shaker pocket after I add my Star Shine sequin from Lucy’s Card Little Things Collection.


OMG, super easy and fun.  Now I know what I can create as my dad sleeps.  I will have to create some more.

For the rest of my card:

1. I used Studio Calico’s May Card Kit pattern paper to create the rest of my card.

2. I cut the pattern paper using Wplus9 Sunshine Layers Die to create my card panels.

3. My tag was created using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 Die and Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle.

4. I used the 3rd biggest circle die to cut a circle in the tag and the gray pattern paper.

5. I added my shaker pouch in between the tags die and the gray pattern paper with Tombow Extreme adhesive.

6. I die cut the Sunshine sentiment out the pink pattern paper 4 times and adhered them together with Tombow Multipurpose adhesive.

7. I stamped the sentiment from WPlus9 Sending Sunshine right above the Sunshine die cut in My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

8. I added Doodlebug Design Birthday Girl Sprinkles to my card front to finish my card off.

Take another look:

You are my sunshine2

Clean & Simple 3 Card Class – Day 2 Faux Letterpress

I’m so excited about my new card.  I had so much fun creating this card, I can’t stop smiling.

Faux Letterpress is another technique that I learned in my online card class.  Shari Carroll taught us how to create this fabulous look of  letterpress without the texture.  I used nothing but ink and it gave this faux letterpress technique a perfectly smooth one layer card.  I love it!!

CAS(E) this Sketch!

I am participating in this new card sketch by CAS(E) this Sketch!  Today’s card is a series of three stamped images across the front of the card with the sentiment on top or below.

Take a look:

You make me smile

I was wondering about the smiley face being in black but the more I look at it the more I loved how the card came out.  I balanced the smiley face out with the sentiment in black.  The twine matched the color combo of the sun.  For me this is a well balanced card.  What do you think?
