CASology #246 – season

Season is the cue card for CASology #246: Can you guess the season I chose? haha If other Vancouverites saw this card, they would throw it right in the trash, if they could find a bin that hadn’t floated away or been lost to the muddy ground.   I thought some glitter to the cloud…

Stamp Ink Paper #96 – CAS wedding

UPDATE: 01 May 2017 – Design Team Pick (thank you!) It’s clean and simple wedding for Stamp Ink Paper #96: Here is my card: I stenciled some gold dots then added some cute paper butterfly embellishments. I tried to get a fading effect with the dots, but I need some practice 🙂 Thanks for stopping…

CAS(E) This Sketch #218

There is so much potential for CAS(E) This Sketch #218: Here is what I came up with: I stamped a Jillibean Soup sentiment on some ribbon with StazOn and it worked like a charm. I love that ink! I felt like making that middle bar with something other than some paper and thought that the…

Freshly Made Sketches #284

Hello 🙂 I almost went with Karren’s hearts in the layout for Freshly Made Sketches #284: …but I had these burlap flowers and decided to go with them instead. I went with neutral colours. I felt the patterned paper was a great match for the flower embellishments. It could work for a just thank you…

CASology 245 – grow

What a cue card for CASology #245: Timely and full of potential! Here is what I came up with: The idea I had going in to this design was someone grateful to a parent or mentor who has helped along the way and shaped the person they are today. I pepped up the stamping with…

Stamp Ink Paper #95 – sketch

Check out this offset sketch for Stamp Ink Paper #95: Here is my take on the sketch: It’s a pink and feminine Mother’s Day card embellished more than my cards usually are. I am trying to make sure I use what I have (so I can buy some new stuff!). I’ve got two different pink…

CAS(E) This Sketch #217

It’s a springy sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch #217: Here is my card: I liked the idea of grass, but had to improvise. I flipped a bunting stencil upside down and used green inks in increasingly dark shades to kind of imitate small hills in a field. Then I stamped, cut out and coloured the…

penguin family card

I had a request for a card with animals – two parents and two babies. I don’t have a lot of animals in my stash so it was off to a big box craft supply store for me. I stood in the sticker aisle, conflicted. It felt like the most difficult choice I had to…

Freshly Made Sketches #283

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #283: Everyone else seemed to have a die that made that exact wave shape, but I don’t so I had to improvise: I made another Mother’s Day card 😀 Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

CASology #244 – strong

NOTE: A big thanks to Rachel for the honourable mention last week for CASology #243 – icing! ❤ The cue card for  CASology #244 is strong: I am on a Mother’s Day card kick right now, and this cue card is a great prompt for one of those! Just one spritz of spray ink, one…

Stamp Ink Paper #94 – tic tac toe

It’s my favourite type of challenge for Stamp Ink Paper #94: I chose the bottom row (die cut, light blue and bird):  I stenciled the bird with some light blue ink (insert two birds with one stone joke here) and made some die cuts for the stamped sentiment. I tried to make the leaves a bit…

CAS(E) This Sketch #216

Gotta love the stripes for the CAS(E) This Sketch #216 sketch: I needed another birthday card for a no-frills kinda guy and I thought this sketch worked really well for that. I stenciled the stripes on some green paper with MementoLuxe Nautical Blue ink. I built up the sentiment with a couple of die cuts,…
