All About PARENTS at CASology

Happy Tuesday! This week, we're showing our parents a little love at CASology.

With Mother's Day right around the corner, I instantly went in that direction.

Every one of the stamps here are from the Simon Says Stamp set "Best Mom Ever".
I was inspired by the colors of spring and thought it would be cool to blend
different colors together in the same rose when I found this cool background paper
in my stash. I used lots of Copic markers for this tiny bit of coloring lol.

Purples & Pinks:
BV00, BV02, BV04
RV00, RV02, RV04

Yellows & Oranges:
YR000, YR02, YR08
Y02, Y08, Y15

YG01, YG06, YG17

Time to share the love of our favorite people and check out the DT inspirations!

Guest Designer: Rahmat
We have our awesome sponsor back this week - STAMPlorations!

BELIEVE You Were Meant to Shine at CASology

We're sharing some positive vibes at CASology this week!
Our new cue card:

It had been too long since I spent some time coloring with my Copics :)
I actually masked her off and stenciled the hearts in the background for a little extra something.

I hope you get over to the other DT members' pages to see their take on the cue card this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Where do we START at CASology

Where do we start?? Well CASology has some options for you this week!

Let's see where the other designers STARTed their ideas :)

FOILed Day at CASology

Happy Tuesday! We're foiling around at CASology this week.

This set is so cute from Create A Smile stamps. I actually used a Versamark pen to create a puddle beneath this little guy and color in the rain drops. Then I applied and heat set 2 layers of clear embossing powder. I placed the blue Deco Foil over the embossing powder and ran it through the 
foiling machine...tada! 

There's some really fancy foiling going on over at the other DT blog pages.
We also have a great 10% discount code from our wonderful sponsor, STAMPlorations...
use code CASOLOGY when you place your order.

BUG-a-boo at CASology

It's a new week and CASology is being a little pesky ;)
Our new cue card is: BUG

I decided to go with the meaning to pester someone...just a friend though :)
Other than the little "umm," tag, this card is all one layer. I love how easy it is to make the speech bubbles pop out if you add a little gray pencil or marker to one side of the outline.

Time to see the other DT member blog pages.

Guest Designer: Hannelie

I hope to see you in our gallery with your pesky little cards :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

A Little ABSTRACT Art at CASology

There's always something interesting at CASology...and this week we're hoping
you join us in the fun. Our new cue card is : ABSTRACT.

I used some alcohol ink through a floral stencil. I used glossy cardstock (couldn't find my Yupo lol) from Ranger, but I love how bright these colors are! I used Cranberry, Raspberry, and Purple Twilight. The centers are dotted with black Nuvo and Magenta Stickles. I freehand drew the black outline and scribbles to give it a more abstract feel.

Swing by and check out the other DT members' off-the-cuff thinking for this week.

Guest Designer: Caroline

I'm also playing along at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge 
(I used a stencil + Nuvo + Stickles + Alcohol Ink)

Thanks for popping in to see what I made this week! I hope to see your awesome creations in the gallery. You have until Monday at 9AM to enter :)

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.
