Some Bunny Loves You


Today's card is for the Time Out Affectionate challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday With Love challenge.  I'm not sure I've ever used these Mama Elephant stamps before but they really are perfect fo this time of year.  Also I know I'm way behind the times but I finally got these Spellbinders dies that create the cutest little cut out frames.  I love them and can see them getting a whole lot of use in the future!

CASology #361


Welcome to Week 361 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:



This Lovie Friend stamp set from Lil Inker is definitely the first one I pick up when Valentine's Day comes around.  The images are adorable and there are some great puns in there too.  I went with a super simple, classic layout today - centre, upper third.  You can't go wrong with that on a CAS design!  

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!

Welcome to Week 360 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:



I've had these Neat & Tangled stamps forever and while they've had a few outings they could certainly always use more love.  They came to mind immediately when I saw this cue word and in no time I had this little number.  I love it when that happens!  

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!

You're Brrr-fect


Today I'm playing along with two challenges - Paper Smooches Anything Cold and Time Out's Photo Challenge.  I'm pretty sure I've never inked up these adorable PS Chilly Chums which really is a crime so I tried to make up for it by creating 3 cards.  The hearts on the tree branches in the photo are what made me think to use the PS linked hearts to create a background and I filled in one heart to create a visual triangle.  






Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Primrose Petal, Raspberry Ripple, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Chilly Chums) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaMark, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Markers:  (R59, R85, C1, C3, C5, W1, W3, W5, 100) Copic
Die:  (Linked hearts) Paper Smooches
