Hey everyone! Guess who is this week’s guest designer for CASology?! ME!!! Isn’t that awesome?! This week’s cue card was SAFARI.

I love the giaffe image from Maple & Ink’s Spotted You First set. It was perfect to use with this week’s cue word.

I did did a little background stamping with Distress Ink and then added my image and a die cut sentiment over some vellum.

Thanks for stopping by and a HUGE thank you to the CASolofy team for having me this week!

Big Hugs for CTD

Hey guys! The current Color Throwdown challenge is a good one- red, yellow, green and aqua.

Love how these colors work together. I thought it would be a challenge to work all of these colors into a super CAS design, but I did it-

I used Whimsy Alphas from W+9 and some Distress Ink for the colorful background. Then a simple die cut from SSS and some Wink of Stella finished it off.

Love this card and it could really work for many types of cards!

Flutter Flutter

Hi everyone! There’s a really cool sketch at the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge this week and I had to play along.

I just got the Beautiful Butterflies set and couldn’t wait to use them. Here’s what I came up with-

I cut some polka dot paper from MFT with a stitching die for the top layer. A heat embossed sentiment made up the bottom rectangle. I used a couple butterflies stamped with Distress Oxide inks for the center portion of the card.

I love these bugs and can’t wait to make more cards with them.

You’re a Gem

Hey everyone! The current cue word over at CASology is DIAMOND.

I recently was gifted the coolest gem set from Ruth #thanksruth and figured this was the perfect time to use it!

I stamped the sentiment and little rays with Versafine and heat embossed with a clear glitter embossing powder to make is sparkle. Then I grabbed the smallest two stones to stamp around the sentiment with Distress Oxides.

I love the clean and simple design of this card. Perfect for birthdays or general cards!

Tweet Birthday

Hey, everyone! MFT has a really cool sketch challenge this week so I decided to play along.

I love the symetry of the sketch, but I don’t have any scalloped edge dies so I made do with a stencil. Check it out-

I used a really fun stencil with some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink for the background. Then a square frame made with a couple Kat scrappiness dies was added to house my bird. He was Copic colored and popped up on the frame along with a matching sentiment.

This card was really fun to create. #ThanksRuth

 

Donuts for (CAS)E This Sketch

Hey, guys! I’ve got a really fun yet simple card to share with you today. I used this sketch from CTS as inspiration.

I loved the gemetric design and thought that I would mimic the shapes’ shading as well. Here’s what I came up with-

IMG_6371.JPG

I used a donut set from MFT as well as a peice of their patterned paper. Some Distress Ink stamping for the donuts and white heat embossing for the sentiment made this card come together rather quickly. Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
