CASology #135: MINI

Hello, friends!  Welcome to another week and a new cue card at CASology!


This week we are sponsored by Uniko Studio on the occasion of their 3rd birthday release!  Be sure to check out the CASology blog for all the details about our sponsor this week!

I always find it challenging to use the tiny images that are usually included in many stamp sets.  This little sun is a perfect example...but it seems to work well when paired with a bigger sentiment, don't you think?

Stamping Supplies Used:
Technique Tuesday "Bring On the Sun" by Ali Edwards
Cricut Cuttlebug "Gingham" embossing folder
Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles die
Wink of Stella glitter pen

I love the added detail of some sparkle on that mini sun...especially when all I see outside my window is snow, snow, snow!


I can't wait to see what MINI means to you!  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time).  Check out the DT and Guest Designer blogs, too!

Guest Designer: Ksenija
Thanks for visiting,
Judy

  2. So glad to see you used the Cuttlebug gingham folder! I have been thinking about purchasing one and your pretty card has helped me to decide. The only concern I have is getting it straight on the card especially the sides. Did you have any problems with it?
