Embossing – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Embossing!

Take a look at my card:

For this card I use the heart die from Concord and 9th Heartstrings Die to create an embossed heart on the card front. I have to confess, when I ran the paper through the Big Shot, I didn’t expect the paper to ruffle up.

Once I took the paper off of the cutting plate, I started to get upset.  Thinking I had to start over, I took a second look at the paper. I actually loved the way the ruffles looked on the card front. The paper looks handmade so I decided to go with it.

So I decided to watercolor inside the heart.  Once that dried I added the word kind from Concord and 9th Kind Card Frame Add on Die across the heart.

To finish the card off, I used Tonic Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss to add shimmer to the watercolor and the sentiment and some New Day Card Kit Enamel Dots.

Take a look:

I love how this card turned out!! What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

{Clean and Simple} – House

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

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

rubber dance stamp

This week’s cue was super fun to work with.  I recently received a stamp set from Rubber Dance Stamp called Textured House and I knew these houses were perfect for this week.

Creating this card was easy.  I used Derwent Inktense Pencils to color the images in. Then I used a wet paint brush to move the color within the image.

The sentiment stamp is from Taylored Expressions Mama & Me stamp set.

I posted a super quick video on Instagram a couple of days ago showing how I color the images in.  If you would like to take a look, click here.

{Clean And Simple} – Loud

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

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

The cue card this week is pretty interesting.  I wanted to wanted to show the cue card in two ways, the look and the actual word.  So, I used Stampers Anonymous Crazy Thoughts stamp set because it provided both of these effects.

For added visual effects, I colored the image in with the Red(Lobster) Jane Davenport Mermaid Marker. I used the pure color that came out of the marker.  No need to dilute it with water. I wanted the color to be as vibrant as possible.

Nothing too it!!  Clean and Simple!!

{Clean And Simple} – Warm

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

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

I love the simplicity of this card.  Waffle Flower BBQ Saying stamp set was perfect for this cue card. I wanted to make people feel warm when then look at the simple watercoloring behind the sentiment.

The watercoloring was created with a Tombow Dual Brush Marker – 847 Crimson.  I swipe the marker on a piece of plastic, sprayed a little bit of water on the plastic and used the plastic to add the color in the corner of the cardstock.

Once the watercolor dried, I used Versafine Onyx Black Ink to stamp the sentiment on top of the watercolor.

To finish the card off, I used We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board to round the corners.

Clean and Simple!!

{Clean and Simple} CASology – Landmark

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

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

For this card, I created a watercolor panel using Sakura Koi Watercolors Set.

Then I used My Favorite Things Die-namics New York Skyline die to die cut the watercolor panel.

After that I adhered the watercolor panel to the card front using foam tape.

To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment from an exclusive Mama Elephant In NYC stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

Nice and Easy.

{Clean and Simple} CASology – Score

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

This week’s cue card:

week-237-score

Take a look at my card:

so-lucky-to-have-you-cas

For this week’s cue card I used Neat and Tangled So Lucky stamp set.  I figured I would get a jump start on St. Patrick’s Day, LOL!!

When I thought about the cue card, I thought about score lines.  I remember having some already scored card stock that I prepped for a different project.  Why not use one of those for this challenge.  I used Papertrey Ink Sunshine Impressions Plate to score the card front.

Then I thought which stamp set would look good over the scored lines and the big bold sentiment from Neat and Tangled came to mind. In order to use this stamp set, I knew I needed to add some color before I stamped the sentiment.

I used Gansail Tambi 36 Color Set to add the pretty watercolor green to card front. I heat set the watercolor.

Then, I used the Mini Misti to stamp the sentiment.  It made it so much easier to stamp the sentiment a couple of times using Stazon Jet Black Ink.

I love how the score lines show through the sentiment.  You have score lines on the actual card front and score lines in the sentiment that were not originally there.

Super doper easy!!
