CASology: Jumpy

It's that time again - time for a new cue from CASology!

I decided to go with a visual interpretation of the cue this time around. I chose my little sheep from MFT Stamps and made her jumping over a fence!

I started my card by cutting out a panel with a stitched rectangle die and then using my MISTI to stamp my fence and my sheep. I stamped them again on some masking paper and then fussy cut around them to mask off my images. After masking, I stamped my hillside. I removed the masks and then used my Copics to color my little scene.

I stamped my sentiment below my scene and then used my tape runner to adhere the panel to a card base.

That's it! Super simple!

Father's Day Pirate

I'm dropping in today with a fun card I made for my Grandpa for Father's Day.

I used my Cube Cover die with an embossing pad to emboss the front of my card base. I set that aside and started on my images.

I cut the pieces from my palm tree from different colors of cardstock and then used multi medium matte to assemble it. I set that aside to dry while I stamped my images in my MISTI.

I used my Copics to color my images and then used my Scan N Cut to cut them out. I stamped my sentiment in Versamark on a strip of black cardstock and then heat embossed it using white embossing powder.

I adhered my sentiment strip directly to the card base using my tape runner and then used a little more multi medium matte to adhere the tree to the left side. I popped a little foam tape on the back of my images to add a little dimension to them and then adhered them to the side of the sentiment and in front of the tree.

I'm loving this little scene and I think the sentiment is just perfect for my Grandpa! Thanks for stopping by!

CASology: Pearl

Whew! Sorry I've been MIA for a little while. You know how it goes sometimes; life just gets in the way! But I'm back today with a brand new cue from CASology!

I'll admit it, my favorite jewelry is pearls. My husband got me pearl earrings for our first Valentine's Day together and I've been in love ever since. This cue is definitely right up my alley!

This is a super simple card. Definitely easy to pull together in just a couple of minutes.

I simply cut and folded an A2 top-folding card base and then used my Roses All Over background stamp with some Versamark ink on the front. I heat embossed the stamp using some Pearl White embossing powder. It doesn't actually add any color to the cardstock, it merely adds a pearl sheen and a little bit of texture. It's my favorite powder for adding subtle detail.

I cut out a strip of black cardstock and then stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with an Opaque White embossing powder. I adhered this to the card front with a little bit of foam tape. And using the rule of thirds, I added it to the bottom third of my card.

I finished it all off by adding a couple of pearl white jewels from Pretty Pink Posh. I just couldn't help myself!
