CASology #176


Welcome to Week 176 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


Yes, 'tis is the season of the Christmas tree but lately the My Cute Stamps keep demanding my attention and since many of them have never seen the light of day I thought I should indulge them.  I love this simple tree image.  I embossed it and coloured it with Copics and added some Glossy Accents to the heart.  The sentiment is from Freshly Squeezed Stamps (sadly also defunct) and I'm loving the look of sentiments highlighted on a dark strip of cardstock - it really makes them pop!  



And this week's guest designer:

I love this, Jen. I will try with small images stamps one day to create a tree too! :) Thank you for the lovely inspiration.

I can see why you chose this image; it's just the right size and has an incredible look. Love the little heart tucked into the branches too. It really emphasizes your sentiment nicely. Love this one!! Bev

Yep! Totally agree! The sentiment definitely pops on that strip of black, and I absolutely adore that tree with its pop of red!
