CASology #194


Welcome to Week 194 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


Mother's Day is fast approaching and I have a number of special order cards to make for that particular day so this challenge came along at a good time for me.  Our sponsor this week is Stamplorations and they were kind enough to send us each a Mother's Day stamp to work with.  I stamped my image onto rose red cardstock and cut it with a Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangle die.  I then cut a PTI heart from the panel and layered it onto 3 other hearts before popping it back into place.  I really like this technique because it adds depth and interest without getting too busy.  I made another card with the same layout but using a few different colours.  Can't decide which one I like the best...

    

Your turn now!  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design and then play along!

Fantastic design, and so very versatile. I think I like the first one best, but just by a teeny bit.

Not one, but two fabulous card, Jen! Can't decide which one I love more, so I'll call it a tie! That second layered-heart die cut is pretty darn clever. Love the colors you've used too. These are just wonderful. Have a great week. Bev

Beautiful cards! I like them both.

Why decide which one is best? Equal love for these! Great way to showcase a little style and dimension using the subway builder!

Nothing like a quality two-fer, Jen! That raised heart in the centre gives it the perfect dimension, and I liked how you showcased the two variations! Pretty colour combo too! ;-)

Melissa said...

Such a versatile design, Jen, and I love what you did with BOTH of these! Just goes to show how a CAS design can be tweaked just a tiny bit to create several effective designs! :)

Hey Jen!! I love the heart popped up from the sentiment. Its subtle but powerful. Nicely done.
