CASology #146


Welcome to Week 146 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


As soon as I saw the cue word for this week I knew it was time to break out this Papertrey Ink set that I've had for ages but have never touched.  I wanted to keep it super simple by not coloring the image so I stamped it on a coloured card base to add some interest.  Originally I was going to stamp the sentiment directly onto the card base as well but it didn't pop enough so I embossed it onto a black piece of cardstock and popped it up on foam tape.  

Be sure to check out all the gorgeous inspiration from the design team and then get crafting!




And this week's guest designer:


Link your creations to the CASology blog and remember that the deadline for entries is Monday at noon (CST).

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Bermuda Bay, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Piano & sentiment from Rhythm & Soul) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Gems:  Recollections

Love this classic image (it's in the vault at PTI, so I probably will not get it) and your simple use of it!

Thanks, Jen, for your kind words on my blog. Means the world to have such sweet friends out there in blogland! LOVE this card. Those colors are perfect. And I love that grand piano. The black accents are just right too; makes everything just pop. Great sentiment. Remind me to tell you a story about Hans Christian Andersen some time... Have a wonderful week! Bev
