CASology: Crunch

Hello, everyone! It's time for a new cue from CASology!


I'll admit, I struggled with this one for a little bit. Then I thought of crunchy cookies dunked in milk! One of my very favorite things!


I used some newer dies from MFT Stamps to create my milk and cookie. I simply die cut the pieces and assembled. I white heat embossed my "milk" sentiment on the  milk bottle. I pulled out a gray cardstock base and white heat embossed my sentiment on a black strip to help it pop. I adhered my images and my sentiment to my card base with foam tape. It was just as simple as that!

Thanks for joining me today and I can't wait to see how you're inspired by the cue!

CASology: Score

There's a brand new cue from CASology and we can't wait to see how you interpret it!


I studied music for many, many years, so when I see the word score I automatically think of a musical score. With that in mind, this is what I came up with!


I know it's a little earlier to start my holiday cards, but is it really? I barely got any made this past year because of a huge move and then getting the house set up. I say the earlier the better this year!

I started my card by cutting a panel with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die. I blended 4 different colors of blue ink into the panel to create an ombre effect. I cut my musical score from white cardstock and adhered it on top of my ombre ink. I added it so it was a little crooked (almost like the wind was blowing the music across the page with the snowflakes) and then added my greeting under it in some black ink. I normally don't use sequins, but I liked how they looked with the delicate snowflakes. I added them sparingly across the card to add to the snowy feel. I adhered my panel to a card base and it was done!

Thanks for joining me today!

Hugs

I have a new card for you today that was inspired by two current challenges.

Less Is More - Alphabet and Addicted to CAS - Wood.


I started my card by cutting a white card base and setting it aside. I cut a panel from some Blackberry Bliss cardstock with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and then used Versamark ink to stamp a woodgrain pattern onto it. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to help it stand out a little more. I cut my sentiment from some Fog Gray cardstock with a word die and then cut my rose from white cardstock. I arranged my flower where I wanted it and adhered it with some Mutli-Medium Matte adhesive. I used the same adhesive to adhere my letters on top of it. I added my panel to the card base with some foam tape for dimension and then finished the whole thing off with a sprinkling of Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

CASology: Romance

Hello, everyone! It's time for a brand new cue from CASology!


And here's my take on the cue!


I'm a cutsie person and so my romance cards tend to be on the cute side. This one is no exception to that! This is actually my Valentine for my husband! I started out by stamping my heart wreath and my squirrel image and then colored them in with Copics. I used the matching die to cut out my wreath, but my Brother Scan N Cut for the squirrel since I didn't order the matching die. I used an ink blending tool and blended in a little light blue ink where my image was going to go to help it stand out. I used foam tape to adhere both my squirrel and wreath over the blended ink.

I originally stamped my sentiment in black ink under my image, but I made an oopsie and it was a little crooked. Instead of scrapping the card and starting over, I simply heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of black paper and adhered it over the original sentiment. I actually like this look better because it helps the sentiment stand out more!

I hope you're inspired to join us this week!
