Time Out #88...Reminder...Sending You a Little Sunshine





There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this time is inspired by words, and we have this quote from Roald Dahl to inspire us.

'If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely' 

I pulled out Hello Sunshine from PTI and stamped just a quarter of a sun right over my quote.



Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Toni, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge.


This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.

PTI July 2017 Blog Hop


Lots going on today....this is my second post.  If you are looking for the CASology 5 Year Anniversary blog hop, please click here.

I am playing along with the PTI July Blog hop, where we have this photo to inspire us.




I was inspired by the color scheme of the photo, as well as the leaves at the top and bottom of the card in the upper left corner.  I wanted to use some new stamps, so used Herb Garden and Pen and Ink.

Keeping it short and sweet today.

CASology Week #258: Diamond




Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is diamond.  I remembered I had these fun diamond shaped dies, and I cut a bunch of platinum (ha...silver) and gold diamonds, and had them cascading down the front of my card.  Who wouldn't want to be cascaded with diamonds, right?




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

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

Time Out #87...Reminder...Happy Birthday




There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this time is a CASE challenge, and we have this amazing card by Cornelia to inspire us.  




I was inspired by that adorable crazy bird, the background behind the bird, and the way Cornelia did her sentiment.  Although I have the same bird stamps, I decided to use my crazy dogs for this card.


I stamped and colored my pup, and then masked him off to stamp the woodgrain mat background behind him.  I stamped my sentiment on a piece of scrap card stock, and then cut it out and adhered it with foam tape.


Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Pooja, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge.  Happy Little Stamper is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.

CASology Week #257: Wish




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

I broke out my Wishes Come True stamp set and stamped a rainbow of candles.




Here is the first card I made.  It looked to me like my rainbow was backwards, so I completed the card and then made another one, putting the colors in reverse order.





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

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

CASology Week #256: Pizza




Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is Pizza.  Are you hungry yet?  Do you like pizza?

I had the best pizza ever a few years ago, when we went to Rome for a family vacation.  To keep this card CAS, I only colored in three tiny areas.  As a nod to the traditional red checkered table cloth found in so many pizzerias, I created a frame out of some red gingham paper.




Now it's your turn.  How does PIZZA inspire you?  Go and grab a slice--then come back and play along.   Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.
