Better TOGETHER at CASology

One more day until V-day for all you love bugs out there. 
CASology is bringing you closer TOGETHER with our cue card :)


I'm going for a more masculine appeal with black accents and no pink lol.


I'm falling in love all over again...with my old school Dymo Label Maker. These ampersand (yep, that's the name of those little 'and' symbols) stamps are from a pretty old Hero Arts set in my stash and, for nice crisp images, I used Hero Arts Shadow and Mid-tone inks. I added a little glossy accents to the hearts for some shine and dimension. Mounted on black cardstock, I think this would be great for a special guy in your life.

Swing by and check out the loving cards the DT created this week.

BUTTERFLY Dreams at CASology

We're spreading our wings...BUTTERFLY wings that is...over at CASology this week!
That awesome little creature is our cue card this week:



For my card, I did some masking and sponging of distress inks first (from bottom to top: Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet, then Seedless Preserves), followed by some water flicking....don't you just love these inks?!

The butterfly stamp is from Prima Marketing - Finnabair Cling Stamps "Don't Forget To Fly" and for my sentiment, I used the old school Dymo Label press. A few sequins and viola!



You should fly right over to the other DT pages and see what they dreamed up this week. And don't forget to say hi to our guest designer.



Guest Designer: Barb G.


I'm also sharing at Fusion Card Challenge: Stained Glass Hearts. I was inspired by the visible color through the hearts and the lines down the center of them. Such a lovely inspiration piece.

Have a happy week creating!

Crooning and SWOONing at CASology


Are you getting started on V-day cards?? Well, we're all in love over at CASology this week. 
Our cue card is: SWOON.



I have always been in love with music and this large music note stamp from the Love Notes set by Casual Fridays Stamps was calling my name. I stamped it in various shades of distress inks, and the sentiment with a few smaller notes from the same stamp set in black Versafine ink. For a last little detail, I took my favorite swivel x-acto blade to the red heart and cut out just the heart. I mounted it on red cardstock to match the red ink I stamped for the note.

Time to swing over and see the swoon-worthy cards by the DT (including our newest members Bharati, Karen, and Kevin - say hi to them) and the guest designer this week.

Get Your Shine on at CASology

We're shining this week over at CASology! So pull out all your sparkly art supplies.
Our new cue card: GLIMMER.



In my silly head, I knew exactly what I was going to use for this challenge - "glimmer paste", right? Wrong, it's actually called glitter paste, but I think I accomplished the same end result lol. I had a laser cut snowflake background that I covered with silver "glimmer" paste ;) and cut on an angle. I stamped the sentiment and blended just the faintest purple in the corners...you may have to squint (I'm still getting my photo setup situated at my new place). BTW - this paste dries quickly, will stick to the paper as you coat it, and is super sparkly!

Now it's time to let the DT and guest designer dazzle you with their creations!

HUGs...Oops Hogs & Kisses at CASology

Every once in awhile, we can all use one...and CASology is sending lots of them
with our new cue card this week: HUG.



Hogs and Kisses! I just couldn't help myself with this cute little Avery Elle stamp set. It has lots of cute sayings to use in the center of the animal stamps :) I used Prismacolor pencils for the coloring and Distress Inks for the border. 

I really hope you "embrace" the DT cards and show them some love too!
