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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 184 - Valentine

Take a look at my card:

Love you (CAS)

Any valentine would love to receive this card. Its super clean and simple.

Its a one layer card that was created with two die cuts and some inking.

I used Your Next Stamp Stripe-tastic Heart Die set to create the heart pattern on the card front.

Then I used my new Clarity Stencils Brushes and Distress Ink Picked Raspberry to add color to the actually card base.

I attached the front card panel with Tombow Extreme Adhesive to the card base creating a one layer card.

To add a sentiment, I used Simon Says Stamp Love You Die to die cut two for added dimension.

To adhered them down, I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to adhered them together and down on the card base.

All done!!

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

Your Next Stamp DT Dare – Something Old, Something New

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Your Next Stamp and our DT Dare!!!

What is a DT Dare you ask? It’s a fun monthly challenge for the YNS design team to show case more fabulous projects using the new release products!!

YNS-DARE-Badge

Fun right!!

Wait there is more!!  If you leave a comment on the YNS blog post you could Win a YNS Stamp Set of your choice!!! 

Exciting right!!  It sure is for me!!

The DT Dare Challenge this month is Something Old, Something New!!  The design team was asked to create a project using one of the new stamp sets from the January release.

Take a look at my card:

Hi there (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Puppy Love, Crystal Clear Gumdrops

Other supplies: Retired Stampin’ Up! DSP, Retired Stampin’ Up! Photo Frame Die, Recollections White Card stock, Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink, Versafine Black Ink, 3M Foam Tape

Can you guess what’s old and what’s new?

For old, if you guessed, the DSP and the Photo Frame Die you are right!  Leaving the Puppy Love Stamp Set as the new item!

For this card, I stamped the heart randomly on the white card stock using the real red ink.  Then I cut a piece of the DSP a little smaller then the card base and adhered it to the card base with 3M foam tape.  After that I cut another piece of the DSP even smaller then the first one and attached that with foam tape. I stamped the heart and the sentiment using the real red ink and the Versamark ink. After that I adhered the frame and gumdrops.

There are plenty of steps but they are doable.

Tip: Stamp your image and sentiment before you adhere the DSP to the card front. 

What do you think?  Please let me know below.

Super simple and easy.

So tell me what you think of this challenge? I would love to know, let me know below!
