CASology Week #212: Fun






Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is Fun.

Now, when I was first thinking about 'fun', laundry was not the first thing that popped into my mind. However, as I searched for whatever I was originally looking for, I happened across this Lawn Fawn Loads of Fun stamp set--uninked and begging to be used.

.
A little bit of paper piecing and coloring later, and I have a humorous birthday card.  I can think of a number of friends I could send a card like this to.


Hard to see from this photo, but I actually cut the washer out twice, cut a circle out of the top layer and covered it with clear card stock.  The laundry is not actually free moving, but it does have the look of a shaker card.

Now, it's your turn.  How does FUN inspire you?  I hope you play along this week. Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Time Out #64...Happy Birthday




It's time for a new challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this week is a CASE challenge.  We have this fun and wonderful card by Julia of Just One More Card.






I was inspired by Julia's airplane and the diagonal striped frame.  I thought her card was so whimsical and fun, and tried to capture that spirit in my CASE of her card.

CASology Week #211: Dream





Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is Dream.



I combined a sentiment from PTI Get Lost with sentiments and images from PTI Retro Style Graduation to make a graduation card.  Transitional events like graduations seem to be a good time to take stock of one's dreams and make a plan to pursue them.


Funny thing about that little road sign that my daughter (a recent high school grad) pointed out to me when I showed her this card--why would the 'aspirations' point in the opposite direction of your 'hopes' and 'dreams' ?  How does that make sense?  Do you need to give up one in order to pursue the other?  Well, I think she is right, but I guess whoever made the stamp set thought that it would look better to have the arrows alternating.  Interesting food for thought....

While I had my Misti set up, I made a second version of this card in a different color scheme.



Now, it's your turn.  How does DREAM inspire you?  I hope you play along this week. Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

ColourQ #355...Thank You



It's time for another color challenge at ColourQ.  I have been traveling a lot this summer, and thought I'd be sitting out this ColourQ.  But, lucky for me, Arielle posted this fun color combination while I was making a quick set of thank you cards for my daughters to use.  It was so easy for me to use these colors on one of the cards.


These flat thank you's are my daughters' favorite type for thank you cards.  They are cute and easy, and there isn't a lot of space for writing.  I am getting my oldest daughter ready to head to college, where her school mascot is a polar bear.  I pulled out PTI Warmest Wishes, and just started coloring in some of the accessories.





The stamp set has a polar bear, fox and penguin, and I just pulled together a good variety, ending up with 8 cards of the same basic design.


Please head over to the ColourQ blog to see more inspiration from the Design Team.  I hope you will play along this week.

Time Out #63...Reminder...Peace




There is still time to play along with the current challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this week is a theme challenge with an optional twist.

The theme is holidays with the optional twist of no stamping (sentiment stamp allowed).


I used a word die cut for my sentiment, and framed it with a Winter Floral Cover Plate die cut.  CAS with lots of detail, but still no stamping.

CASology Week #210: Dizzy



Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is Dizzy.



I used a fun birthday sentiment set from PTI called Script Swirls.  I think if you tried to read this sentiment, it might make you dizzy.


To enhance the dizzy feel of this card, I used some dies to cut my layers and adhered them tilted and askew.

Now, it's your turn.  How does DIZZY inspire you?  I hope you play along this week. Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Time Out #63...Joy




It's time for a new challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this week is a theme challenge with an optional twist.

The theme is holidays with the optional twist of no stamping (sentiment stamp allowed).


I decided to play along with the twist, and looked to my word dies to help me satisfy the challenge. I used a PTI Phrase Play die (joy) and some patterned paper for my card.  Quick and easy, once I worked out what I wanted to do.

CASology Week #209: Watercolor




Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is Watercolor.



This was a really quick card to create.  I started with a water coloring page from PTI featuring Bold Blossoms stamps.  I used my Zig water color pens to water color the flowers and leaves.  I like how forgiving water coloring is--it doesn't take much to get something that looks kind of artsy.

Now, it's your turn.  How does WATERCOLOR inspire you?  I hope you play along this week. Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

ColourQ #353....Happy Birthday



It's time for another color challenge at ColourQ.

What an adorable top from Gymboree.  I miss the days of shopping at Gymboree for my daughters.



I did some background stamping in this week's colors on a panel cut on the diagonal.  I used the little mini set from PTI called One Big Happy.  Added a sentiment partly die cut and partly stamped and fussy cut, a bit of texture, and this card was done.




Please head over to the ColourQ blog to see more inspiration from the Design Team.  I hope you will play along this week.

Happy Little Stampers Case The Designer August 2016...Wishing You a Beautiful Day



Hello and happy August.  I'm here to post a card for Happy Little Stampers Case the Designer challenge.

Our inspiration this month is provided by Gloria.  Take a look at this gorgeous inspiration card.



I was inspired by Gloria's masking, as well as how she placed her sentiment in the white space of her focal point.


I created a mask of a butterfly using computer paper, and then stamped many overlapping butterflies all around my card front.  When I removed the mask, I had a nice white butterfly shaped space to put my sentiment.



Our challenge will run for the entire month of August.  I hope you will play along.  Please head over to the Happy Little Stampers Case the Designers blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the design team.
