Flowers in a Teapot


Good morning!

I have a CAS card for two challenges - CAS on Friday (Flowers) and The Flower Challenge (Anything Goes).  I inked up some NBUS Flora & Fauna stamps for this design.  The red flowers and shadow are stamped directly onto the card base and the large flower and teapot are popped up on foam tape for a bit of dimension.  The colour palette actually came from Tracey's Muse card but I was totally disorganized and missed the deadline for that.  Doh! 



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Flowers & teapot from You Me Teaset, Shadow from Texture Set) Flora & Fauna
Ink:  (Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko, (Crimson, Turquoise, Silver Stone) Altenew
Markers:  (YR04, Y38) Copic
Other:  (Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops) Tonic

Froggie Friend


Hello hello!

I'm popping in with a card for the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink which I rotated 180 degrees.  I recently got a few stamp sets from Your Next Stamp and it was a no-brainer that this little froggie would end up in my shopping cart.  He reminds me of the tiny tree frogs we have here that sing all night.  They're especially noisy right now since we just had a good rain shower.  I sprinkled some Brushos on watercolor paper, spritzed them and once they were dry I stamped and die cut the froggie.  I stamped him a second time on white cardstock to cut out the eyes.  I popped him up on a Lil' Inker pierced square and I used a sentiment and speech bubble from Heffy Doodle.  

I actually had so much fun with him that I made a few other similar cards at the same time.






Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (White) Papertrey Ink, (Tangelo Twist, Night of Navy) Stampin' Up, (Watercolor) Ranger
Stamps:  (Frog from Sticky Note) Your Next Stamp, (Sentiment from Whatcha Saying) Heffy Doodle
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Pierced square) Lil' Inker Designs, (Speech Bubble) Heffy Doodle

Rainbows, Unicorns and...Jellyfish?


Hello there!

I've got two cards to share today.  First is for the Card Concept.  I love the rainbow striped wall in the photo and took that as my inspiration.  I love this background die from Taylored Expressions - the different sized stripes add a fun dimension to it.  I've been trying to work out which style this fits into - Clean and Layered perhaps?

CASology #312


Welcome to Week 312 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


When I'm sick nothing seems to heal my sore throat like some hot soup.  Classic chicken soup is always good but there's something about tomato soup that seems extra comforting.  How about you?  What's your favourite healing soup?

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!
