CASology: SWOON

Hi, everyone! I’m not sure if you all follow the CASology challenge blog, but if you don’t, you should!!! Because I just joined as  design team member!!! I am SO SO SO SO SO excited. I have participated in a few different challenges over my card mkaing years, but CASology has always been my favorite. I love seeing how everybody interprets the cue cards each week. But, I don’t always have time to enter the challenges- so now I have an excuse- I NEED to get my card done!

Here’s the cue card for my this week.

I actually had to Google what this actually meant, I’ve heard it before and had a pretty good idea. People are always leaving comments on Instagram posts about a card being “swoon worthy” so I figured it meant something along the lines of “love it” or “jaw dropping.” So for my card I went with the love theme. Check it out-

Thanks for stopping by today to see my first CASology DT card, I really am looking forward to all the rest!! Have a great day!

AI Hugs

Hi everyone! I’m here today to share this sweet card with you guys. Valentine’s Day is coming up but I think this could be used anytime of the year, really. Check it out-

I used an awesome stamp from Art Impressions as my focal point. I colored that adorable couple up with Copics and fussy cut it out. A fun plaid paper and die cut window sentiment finished this card off.

I love adding adding patterned paper to cards that are still CAS. Keeping the paper use in small amounts and using interesting angles really makes an impact in my opinion.

I also used the current cue card over at CASology as inspiration.

Double Awesome

Hey everyone! I have a pair of cards to share today! They’re pretty much the same design so I thought I’d share them together. Check them out-

I started by ink blending with 4 Distress Inks on each panel. Then I ran them through with an embossing folder to give them amazing texture and dimension. Then I die cut a scripty “awesome” die with some black cardstock to use as the sentiment on top of a strip of vellum and glitter paper. I’m not sure if “awesome” is really a full sentiment but I didn’t know what else to add and I loved the design as is.

I used the color challenge from YNS as inspiration. This die is the only YNS product I have, and it cut sooo nicely I’m definitely going to try to get more!

I don’t have any kind dies or stamps so I figured this happiness sentiment would do. I love the cheerful messege.

I started by ink blending 3 colors of Distress Ink onto the card front in a geometric stripey fashion. Then I stamped the sentiment.

This is a very simple design but I really like how it turned out.

A Foxy Thank You

Hi guys! I’m back with a CAS thank you card. Check it out-

I started by doing some masked ink blending with a cloud stencil and Distress Ink. Then I added a Copic colored fox from Newton’s Nook and a sentiment fom MFT.

I love the look of this CAS card. I’ll be using this design for future projects. Here’s the color inspiration for this card.

Valentine’s Day?

Hey everyone! I guess Valentine’s Day is right around the corner…so here’s the first and probably only Valentine I’ll make for this year!

I used MFT’s Written in Watercolor for the white heat embossed heart pattern. They’re really fun and all unique. The set has really cool  sentiments as well that I find myself using quite often on the inside of cards. The sentiment on this card comes from a Maple & Ink set from last year.

Heres the sketch I used as inspiration.

Hey everyone!! I have 3 supercool projects to share for the Superstar challenge at MFT! There are 3 categories this year and here’s my entry for each-

CAS-

For my clean and simple design I chose to go with MFT’s classic chef image from Recipe for Happiness. The brick background Stamp was a perfect backdrop for him.

 

Interactive-

Polar Bear pals are perfect for slider cards! This bear skates back and forth across the sentiment strip backed by a MFT background Stamp white heat embossed onto gray card stock.

 

Coloring Virtuoso-

There aren’t many images I don’t enjoy coloring from MFT. But one of my all time favorites are these adorable mice from Harvest Mouse. I actually made a tag with four of the mice but this guy is my favorite. I colored him with Copics and added him to a teeny tiny card using a tag builders set. I love mini cards!

Thanks for stopping by and if there’s still time make sure to enter the challenges!! MFT is generously giving away over $4000 in prizes, showing just what a kind and thoughtful company they are! Thanks for the chance MFT!!
