CASology Week 98: Shine




It's time for another challenge at CASology.  This week our cue word is SHINE.  There are so many different ways to go with this word.  My first thought was to do something with sunshine, since I have many stamps, dies and sentiments along those lines.  But, like the squirrel distracted by something shiny, I ultimately decided to use something shiny on my card.  

A while back, I bought the most beautiful shimmer paper from PTI in all sorts of colors.  It is shimmery and shiny, and apparently meant to be hoarded.  I pulled out a few different colors and cut some popsicles for my card.  I used a sentiment from Summer Sweetness and my newest favorite Impression Plate (Guide Lines). 




Now, it is your turn.  What do you think of when you see the word SHINE.  Have some fun with the cue word SHINE, and then please link up your creation on the CASology blog by Monday 6/9 at noon (CST).
 

Since CASology is a Clean And Simple challenge, I thought it would be helpful to review some things to keep in mind when creating a CAS design:  
1.  One main image
2.  Lots of open space (uncluttered)

3.  Limited layers & embellishments
4.  Quick & easy to recreate



 

You can see that my card meets all 4 criteria above.

 

So, what do you think of when you see the word SHINE?

 

Check out the beautiful designs from the CASology Design Team members and see how they were inspired by SHINE.  Then, please play along and link your creation to the CASology blog by Monday 6/9 at noon (CST).  



Don't forget to keep your card Clean and Simple.

  9. Congrats on the Serendipity win...with the creative flower card! You've also created a very cute fun card here.. Really like this, and it will sound corny...but it honestly does make me want to go and get a popsicle...(have to go buy some first! smile) But it's something we keep in our freezer for most of the summer.
    Great take on the challenge...so far I am coming up blank...
    Thank you for the nice comments on my blog.
