CASology #126


Welcome to Week 126 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:




I finally broke down and made a snow card!  I didn't really have much choice with this cue word.  LOL!  It gave me an excuse to break out this ancient snowflake die though so that's a plus.  :)  I also used some alphabet stickers that I've had kicking around for quite a while.  (This card would have worked for last week's cue as well since the snowflake is actually silver.)  
Anyway I'm looking forward to seeing all your snowy creations.  Pop over to the CASology blog to check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the Design Team and then play along! 



And this week's guest designer:

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Night of Navy, Brushed Silver) Stampin' Up

There are a lot of fabulous Christmas songs out there but Silver Bells is one of my favourites especially when it's Bing Crosby's version.  His voice just sounds like Christmas!  The design team gals have gone in a few different directions with this cue word and I can't wait to see what you do with it!

CASology #124


Welcome to Week 124 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


My card this week uses "old" in a lot of ways.  All the stamps are from older collections, the penny farthing is an antique and the sentiment uses the word cool in it.  A triple old play!  Be sure and check out the rest of the awesomeness from the design team and then play along!

CASology #123


Welcome to Week 123 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I was in a bold base-colour kind of mood when I made this card so I kept my image clean and white to balance it out.  I coloured the flames yellow to tie the image to the bright sentiment.  Hop on over to the CASology blog and check out all the goodies created by the Design Team gals and then play along!

CAS(E) This Sketch 100!



Hello there!  I was so excited when Chrissy Larson contacted me to help celebrate the 100th sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch!  I was a member of the design team from November 2012 - June 2014 and I give CTS full credit for helping me overcome my fear of sketches.  I play along now and then and always check out the latest creations from the design team - it's a stellar group of ladies!  Anyway I spent a ridiculously long time on a card before finally admitting to myself that it just wasn't working and I needed to start over. Thankfully once I saw Therese's card over at Muse this idea came together very quickly and easily.  I hope you'll play along and make this 100th challenge a super special one!    

I'm also playing along with the Moxie Fab Tree-Mendous Trees challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday Star challenge.



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment)  Woodware
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Nesting Star) Lifestyle Crafts
Punch:  (1/2" circle) Marvy Uchida

CASology #121


Welcome to Week 121 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:




This week the DT is playing along with our teamie Tracey McNeely's annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!  We've all used our cue word to make CAS tags instead of cards.  I'm generally not much of a tag maker and when I do make them I usually end up sticking them onto cards!  LOL!  However, there is so much amazing inspiration over on Tracey's blog that I had no trouble coming up with my own design this week.


Now, not only is Tracey showcasing a mind boggling number of amazing tags but she is also hosting a massive giveaway of goodies from 6 amazing sponsors:

CAS-ual Fridays
Clearly Besotted
Lawn Fawn
Neat & Tangled 
Paper Smooches 
Reverse Confetti

Awesome right?  Tracey is offering a chance to win every day by commenting on her blog posts.  She's also asked each of us from the DT to draw a name from today's post to add to her prize draw.  You have until November 27th to comment here for an extra chance to win!  Be sure and visit the rest of the Design Team to ogle their gorgeous tags and also to comment for even more chances to win!
