Happy Tuesday! CASology is back with a cool...well WARM actually...cue card this week.
I thought I'd have a little fun and use this grumpy monster (Monster Morning) from Whipper Snapper Designs with a sweet sentiment (from Hero Arts). The bunny slippers sold me on the concept lol. A little Copic coloring and this guy is ready for some smiles.
We have some wonderful inspirations for you, so swing over to the DT blogs.
And definitely say hi to our guest designer, Angie, and awesome sponsor, STAMPlorations!

I'm super excited to be joining the AAA Cards challenge as the guest designer!
They always have some great CAS themes and inspiration cards from their DT.
For the next 2 weeks, it's all about embossing.
I used the theme 3 different ways (crazy huh lol)!
I did some multicolored heat embossing on the butterflies and flower, some dry embossing to create the texture on the card, and embossing with dies to make the butterflies and flower pop!
This sweet stamp set and coordinating dies are from Stamplorations- Buttercups and Butterflies.
I hope you can play along and thanks for stopping by!

I definitely love bright colors and graphic CAS designs! When I saw the AAA Cards challenge and the DT call, I thought I'd join along and toss my butterfly into the hat :)
Believe it or not, this is a one-layer card...except for the black cardstock! I picked up a new find on clearance at Hobby Lobby- the Sizzix Dimensional Cutting Pad- with a Tim Holtz Butterfly die to lift the wings and keep the body on the card. I'll definitely be using this technique more often!
I'm also linking up at CAS(E) this Sketch #221
Hopefully, you'll give partial die cutting a try. And I'd appreciate all the good juju you can send for my DT tryout :) Have a great day!

It's that time of year and CASology and we're celebrating too!
I used clear embossing powder on black cardstock to make the shiny tone-on-tone graduation caps. Shiny gold embossing powder makes a great contrast for the stars and the sentiment, which I stamped on vellum to allow the background to still peek through :)
The DT has some great ideas if you're still making those graduation cards!
And don't forget to say hi to our guest designer this week.
