CASology #38



Welcome to Week 38 of CASology!  Here's the cue word for this week:


This week we are excited to be sponsored by Lawn Fawn!  If you've never checked out Kelly Marie's super cute LF stamps then you're missing out and you must take a peek at them.  I used the light bulb and sentiment from the How Delightful mini set.  I wanted to frame the bulb and considered trying to hand cut around it but I'm not so good with a craft knife.  So I started flipping through my dies and found a hot air balloon which, to me, looked kind of like a light bulb!  Okay now let's see what's UP in your crafty brains!  Check out the rest of the DT and then get crafting!



Link your creations to the CASology blog and remember that submissions are due by 4pm CST Sunday, 7 April.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (So Saffron, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Light & sentiment from How Delightful) Lawn Fawn, (Bit of Burlap) Market Street Stamps
Ink:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko(More Mustard) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Up, Up & Away) Papertrey Ink
Washi Tape:  My Mind's Eye
Marker:  (Stampin' Write Basic Black) Stampin' Up
