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!




Guest Designer: Karen D.


I'm also joining in at Fusion Card Challenge's 4th Anniversary.

Have a crafty week!

New Year's ENCOURAGEment at CASology


HAPPY NEW YEAR! 
Wowsers, have I missed crafting and sharing with you. I've been promoted, relocated to a new state, and had to downsize my art space lol. 

2018 is here and we have a great cue card at CASology to kick off the year! 





I'm using two Vera Lane Studio digi stamps that I think are an awesome way to start the year. The sentiment is from the set "Apple and Tweet" and the border is a part of a frame from the set  "Fun Frames" (which I photoshopped a little to remove the rest of the frame). I used Prismacolor pencils sharpened to a fine point for all the coloring on this card.
I think I've found my saying for this year :)

I certainly encourage you to see the rest of the DT cards and our guest designer this week!

I can't wait to see what you come up with this week and into the new year.

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design for CASology:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
Happy crafting!

Holiday CHEER at CASology

It's all about a little happiness this week at CASology
I'm gearing up for the holiday season with my card this week. 
The cue card is: CHEER.



I adore metallic embossing powder...well all EPs actually lol. This stamp set is a little older stamp set from Hero Arts called Under the Mistletoe.
The red berries are actually stamped and heat embossed on vellum then popped up on foam dots
to give some dimension to the card. How easy is this?!


Don't forget to swing by the other DT member blogs to see their cheery cards!
