CASology #113: GRASS

Hello, friends! It's time for another cue at CASology!  This week we are sponsored by STAMPlorations...be sure to check out the CASology blog for all the details!


I saw the cue this week and immediately thought of the grass soccer fields we spend SO much of our time on for our two sons...both boys play on travel soccer teams and play in both fall and spring, so we spend a lot of time sitting on the sidelines of grass soccer fields cheering their teams on.

Because they are so involved in soccer, we tend to give a lot of thank you notes to their soccer coaches at the end of each season.  I figured this was a good time to get a head start on a thank you note!  


I dry embossed the clouds with an embossing folder by Darice and cut the grass with a Martha Stewart grass border punch on patterned paper.  The sentiment and die are from Simon Says Stamp, while the soccer ball is from a Studio 112 $1 stamp set.  The "thanks" is green felt which I glued onto card stock for stability before I die cut it out.  I used Hero Arts Grass Chalk Ink for the stamped sentiment.

I have a few other ideas for "grass," so I may be back later in the week with another card if I can swing it!

I hope you will play along with us this week!  Be sure to link up your GRASS card by noon on Monday (Central time). You will love the many ways our Design Team and Guest Designer interpreted the cue this week...be sure to check out their blogs for more creative inspiration!

  7. Love how you interpreted this week's cue word based on your life. And the die cutting 'thanks' using green felt was a great choice. It would be a great thank card for your kid's couch, Judy! Love it! May

  10. Brilliant idea for a soccer coach thank you. I'm pinning this one and will be casing in the future. With two girls who play soccer and lacrosse, I am always on the lookout for good ideas for coach cards.

  13. Sometime in the wee small hours of the morning I thought "grass." Since grandson #2 is playing his first year of soccer I thought grass and a soccer ball. Then just now I look at the CASology blog and lo and behold here is your card. Great minds think alike Judy. Love the embossing folder. I think our card idea is great.

  16. Judy I think I dream about your card....
    I was thinking last night which Image I want to use..
    then I woke up and thinking ooh I need a football card
    then I took the paper punched the green paper and cut the ball..
    then after went back home from the office I arrange the card
    I just realized my card is nearly similar like yours
    (you really give me idee Judy...thanks)
    If the DT member think my card is similar then is ok but I am happy 3 hours before challenge finished I finished my card and put on the blog :)

    Now about your card...love that sentiment in green and the white clouds...and love the other green sentiment too, perfect CAS card and I think my one is little bit so less :) hope you like to see it ...see you soon on my blog dear Judy..hugs, Monika
