CASology Week #313...Dress





Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is DRESS.


I cut out the Memory Box Taylor Party dress in a rainbow of colors, and cut each dress out of the dress to the left of it in the line up.  That way, my card stayed pretty flat.

Now it's your turn.  How does DRESS inspire you?  I hope you play along this week.  Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

My Crafty Week



Hang on....I've had a crafty week.  First up is a card using Warmest Wishes, and I am playing along with PTI Create Along With Us and CASE-ing this card by Heather.





I got a fun new abstract cityscape stamp from Hero Arts, and I used it to play along at The Male Room #94: Geometrics.  When I saw how this stamp looks, I was struck by all the squares, rectangles and vertical and horizontal lines.





I used Poppystamps Brevilla Houses die for my next card, which I am entering at Poppystamps Challenge #48: Anything Goes and Addicted to Stamps and More #309: CAS.




This card is inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #289.  I used PTI Fence Line Spring.






My next card uses one of my favorite quotes for a housewarming card--an Irish Blessing from a retired Verve stamp set.  I used In the Woods die by PTI and popped up a couple of birds.  I am entering this card at Addicted to CAS #145: Tweet and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Pop it Up.





My next 3 cards use Hero Arts Paper Layering Neighborhood Die.  What a fun die.  I used it for a birthday card that I am entering at Seize the Birthday, where the topping is Die Cuts or Punches.  I used Copic Markers to create a pink ombre on the layer that shows beneath the windows.




I used the color challenge at Just Us Girls #458 for my next card.  My 3rd color is white.




Last up for today is another neighborhood, this one inspired by the challenge at Color Throwdown #510.

CASology Week #312...Heal





Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is HEAL.




Although being sick or injured is not usually a laughing matter, there are instances where a light hearted card would be appropriate.  Now, I am prepared.

Now it's your turn.  How does HEAL inspire you?  I hope you play along this week.  Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

My Crafty Week



Shanah Tovah--Happy New Year to all my Jewish friends.  It is 5779 in the Jewish calendar.  Here is the card I sent this year to my Jewish friends and relatives.  I used a rubber stamp from Zum Gali Gali called Shanah Tovah City, stamped in Versamark and embossed with Copper embossing powder.


 I am entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #308: Holiday and Simon Says Monday Challenge: Stamp it On.




My next card is for the PTI Transformation Tuesday challenge.  I took this card from March, 2016 and transformed it using the fall color scheme presented here by Lexi.  The colors are Sweet Blush, Melon Berry, Enchanted Evening and Ocean Tides.

My next card was inspired by the photo at Just Add Ink #425.  I used my newest PTI stamps--Fence Line Spring.  I was inspired by the white picket fence and all the pink flowers in the photo.



I am also entering this card at CAS on Friday #141: Flowers and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Stamp It.




I used Distress Ink to blend a sunset sky behind this Homescape die by Sugar Peas.  I am entering this card at Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #453: Spectacular Backgrounds.






Last up is a card that I will enter at Less is More #379: Black, White and one color.  Scarlet Jewel is the color I chose.  The stamps and dies are Concord & 9th City Stacks.  I am still loving those fun stamps.
