CASology #190: WEATHER

(Click HERE for my give-away post!)

Hello, friends!  Welcome to a new week at CASology where the cue card is perfect for our current season here in the United States -- spring!  In the past few days alone I have seen snow, sun, and lots of wind!  Tomorrow's forecast?  Warm!  Yep, I've seen lots of crazy WEATHER!


This week we are sponsored by Avery Elle, so I decided to play with my "Simply Said: You" stamp and die sets.  I paired the die cut with silver glitter paper to elicit the feeling of a "silver lining" among the clouds, and the blue card base signifies the sky. Instead of dry embossing the entire cloud background (using a Darice embossing folder), I tapped on it with a hammer on only the clouds I wanted to emboss.  (I saw that done beautifully by Rosemary and had to try it!)  The cute little sun is an old Me & My Big Ideas stamp.


I love how that glitter paper sparkles in the sun!



Be sure to link up your WEATHER card by noon on Monday.  Check out our Design Team and Guest Designer cards, too...you are sure to be inspired!

  5. Oh boy is this ever cute! That little happy sun is too much fun and I like the pop of sparkle. Great idea you (and Rosemary!) had to use only a portion of the embossing folder!

  6. I can't imagine a cloud daring to block your sunshine-y attitude, and joy of life, Judy! This is a perfect example of it - silver lining, indeed! xx
