CASology: Cloud

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

I decided that this cue was perfect for an encouragement card and this is what I came up with!

I used a dark gray card base to simulate a stormy looking sky and then used a stitched cloud edge die for my cloud. I added a sun peaking out from behind the cloud to show that the storm was starting to lift. A super simple card using mostly die cuts and just one stamp for the sentiment. It all came together in about 10 minutes! Can't get much more CAS than that!

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to link up your own creations to the CASology post! You have two weeks again this time around, so plenty of time to play!

CASology: Zoom

Hello! Welcome to a brand new challenge from CASology! And since we're heading into the summer and we all seem to get extra busy at this time of year, this challenge will be running for 2 weeks.

I decided to go with a photography interpretation of the cue. You'll see it's a little different than what the other ladies on the team came up with...

I decided to use the spotlight technique to highlight my focus on the zoomed in part of the flowers. I cut and folded a card base and then used my MISTI to stamp my floral image on it. I cut a panel down to the same size as the front of the card base and then used my MISTI with the floral image still inside to stamp my panel with the floral image in the same location as on the front of the card base. 

I ran my panel through my Big Shot using my polaroid die to cut the piece that I would eventually color and layer on top of the card base. I also cut another piece with my polaroid die so my frame would remain white.

When I finished coloring my little square of flowers, I used my Multi Medium Matte to adhere it directly to the card base so that it would fit perfectly over the image that was already there "spotlighting" the portion that appears in the picture frame. I then positioned the frame around the colored piece, adhering it with a little more Multi Medium Matte.

I finished the whole thing by stamping my sentiment in Versamark and heat embossing in gold powder.
