CASology #208: JOURNEY

Hello, friends!  Welcome back for another cue card at CASology!  This week it is not about the destination, we are focusing on the JOURNEY.

This week I decided to let my combined sentiment be the main focal point of my card, with the dashed line and punched butterflies added for interest.  The floral frame and subtle stamping on the card base also add interest but don't take away from the focal point.

          Stamps: Precious Remembrance Shop (New Day, Journey, Mom and Dad); MFT (Burlap background)
          Dies: Lil' Inkers (Stitched Rectangles), Martha Stewart (3 in 1 Butterfly punch)
          Inks: Hero Arts (Black, Soft Wheat), Tim Holtz distress ink (Peacock Feathers)
          Papers: Basic Grey (Picadilly)
          Other: Ranger Stickles (Waterfall)

I can't wait to see your JOURNEY cards!  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). Check out the Design Team and Guest Designer blogs for more inspiration, too!

CASology #207: ROUGH

Hello, friends!  Happy Tuesday!  You know what that means, right?  A new cue card at CASology!

My thoughts went to making a card for someone going through a rough time...and that's what led me to this stencil and stamp set by STAMPlorations (our sponsor this week).

I masked the stencil so that only one flower was inked, and I added the ever-elusive-in-photographs Wink of Stella to the petals.  The sentiment fit perfectly inside the stem!

Supplies Used:
STAMPlorations "Noteworthy" stamps
STAMPlorations "Happy Flowers" stencil
Tim Holtz distress inks: Shabby Shutters, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade
WPlus9 "Sunshine Layers" die
Wink of Stella

So, what does ROUGH bring to mind for you?  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time) and visit the Design Team and Guest Designer for more inspiration!

I'm also entering this card in the current STAMPlorations July CAS Card Challenge (I used a touch of orange, the optional twist color, in the flower petal).  In addition, I'm also adding it to the STAMPlorations Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge!

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #14

Hello, friends!  It's time for the latest Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #14...check out this fun challenge board!

For my card, I went with the third row down: Add Dimensional / Intricate Dies / Ribbon.

I added dimension by mounting the entire card panel on foam tape, and then added turquoise rhinestones to the butterfly body.  I used my favorite intricate butterfly die with blue glitter paper and mounted it on top of a strip of polka dot ribbon.   I thought the sentiment was a perfect fit for this layout!

Card Supplies:
STAMPlorations "Noteworthy"
Simon Says Stamp "Leanna" butterfly die
WPlus9 "Sunshine Layers" die
Me & My Big Ideas turquoise rhinestones
DCWV glitter paper
polka dot ribbon
Glossy Accents and foam tape (as adhesives)

I am also linking my card up to the July CAS card challenge at STAMPlorations blog where it is Anything CAS Goes (with an optional color twist of orange -- obviously I did not choose that option!).

I hope you are able to play along with us for Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #14 -- this board has so many possibilities!  Be sure to check out the inspiring cards by the Design Team and then join in the fun!

CASology #206: ART

Hello, friends!  Tuesday has arrived, and so has the next cue card at CASology!

This week we are challenged to make a card about ART.  Aren't all of our cards art? Why was this cue so challenging to me, then?  After much deliberation and searching through my stash, I decided to keep it simple and fun and make a card using this adorable bunny from Gerda Steiner Designs paired with some art-inspired sentiments from Precious Remembrance Shop.

Gerda Steiner Designs "Brush Bunny"
Precious Remembrance Shop "Blossom Art"
Simon Says Stamp Coral Reef dye ink
Copic markers
Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangle dies
I'm also linking this up to Gerda Steiner Design's 23rd Share Your Designs Challenge.

I can't wait to see your ART this week!  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). You will also be inspired by the many ways our Design Team and Guest Designer interpreted the cue this sure to check out their blogs, too!
