CASology #382

 

Welcome to Week 381 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


So many people are itching to be reunited with loved ones right now so I thought this pup would be perfect for today's cue word.  I coloured him with Copics and popped him up on some foam tape for a bit of dimension. 

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!

Flower Cluster Birthday

 


I've got a card today for two challenges - Simon Says Wednesday challenge (use something new) and Seize the Birthday.  (The Topping for STB is Snowy Background but since I rarely make snowy cards I'm going for the Anything Goes topping).  This is a new to me die from Simon Says Stamp.  It wasn't as fiddly as I expected it to be and in the end the hardest part was choosing the colours for the flowers.  The sentiment is made up of a Mama Elephant die and a Neat & Tangled stamp.

Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Strawberry Slush, Flirty Flamingo, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Birthday from Everyday Labels) Neat & Tangled
Ink:   (Strawberry Slush) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Flower cluster) Simon Says Stamp, (Happy) Mama Elephant
Other:  (Nuvo English Mustard Crystal Drops) Tonic

Birthday Chicks

 

Today's card is for the My Favourite Things sketch challenge and the Addicted to Stamps and More Make Your Mark challenge.  There aren't a lot of stamp sets that I use over and over but these birthday chicks from MFT are ones that I return to regularly.  They're so cute and quick and easy to colour which is always a bonus for me as I think I'm one of the slowest Copic colorers ever!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Bermuda Bay, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Birthday Chicks) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaMark, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Flag) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (RV00, YR20, YR16, Y15, Y17, YG11, BG10, B60, E31) Copic
Other:  (Nuvo Oyster Grey Crystal Drops) Tonic

You Got This

 

Today's card is for threes challenges - CAS Colours & Sketches, Fusion (I turned the sketch 90 degrees to the left) and The Card Concept (CAS style).  Both the photo prompts have warm and cozy hot chocolate/coffee images so I reached for my favourite coffee mug die from Lil'Inker Designs.  They have a great set of sentiments that fit on the cup so I could easily make a whole set of cards just by changing up the sentiment and the colour combo.  


Supplies Used:

Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Cherry Cobbler, Bermuda By, Pool Party, Soft Suede) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Coffee Talk) Lil' Inker Designs
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Hero Arts
Dies:  (Coffee cup) Lil' Inker Designs, (Stripes) Mama Elephant
Markers:  (R85, Y17, G05, G14, BV13, E33, E35) Copic
Other:  (Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops) Tonic

Hot Diggity Dogs

 

Today I have cards for the Paper Players challenge to use something new.  I've been wanting this adorable Essentials by Ellen pooch set for ages and finally got my hands on it thanks to a sale.  I coloured the dogs, skateboards and balloons with Copics and then fussy cut the sweaters from Reverse Confetti paper.  The Lil' Inker Designs speech bubble was the perfect size for the sentiment.   


Supplies Used:

Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Rose Red, Cucumber Crush) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Paper Bliss 6x6) Reverse Confetti
Stamps:  (All from Clever Sausage) Essentials by Ellen
Inks:  (Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Speech bubble) Lil' Inker Designs

Speech Bubble Hello


 Today's card is for the Hello challenge at Just Us Girls.  I was making another card and ended up with this colorful leftover hello speech bubble.  I couldn't let it go to waste and the JUGS challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to make use of it.  Originally I was going to mount it on a black card base but then I decided I wanted a little more pizzazz so I cut it down and put it on a Granny Apple Green card base instead.  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Granny Apple Green, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Sweet Marmalade 12x12) Sassafras
Dies:  (Say Hello) My Favourite Things
Other:  (Glossy Accents) Ranger, (Nuvo Oyster Grey Crystal Drops) Tonic

CASology #381

 


Welcome to Week 381 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:



This is a great cue word to start off the new year because it really does hold a lot of possibilities for interpretation.  I went for some simple thought bubbles and a thinking of you sentiment which can include thinking of good times with the recipient.  Since my design was all about the sentiment I decided to use bright colours to really make it pop.

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!
