CASology Week #317...Menu




Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is MENU.  I had this cute image stamped when I was visiting Tracey.  So, my card says "Pie is on the Menu!!"  And, lucky for you if it is your birthday, because then the calories don't count.





Now it's your turn.  How does MENU 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.

Cityscapes



I absolutely love cityscapes--in real life and also stamps and dies.  I have a large collection, and am always glad to add to it.  So, when I saw that Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge was Cityscape, I knew I would be playing around with some of my favorite stamps and dies.  Unfortunately, due to time constraints and the need to sleep and eat, I only managed to eke out 4 cards, barely making a dent in my collection of supplies.

I'll start with my favorite card.  Lately, it seems like cards made with Concord & 9th City Stacks are always my favorite of the bunch, and this week is no exception.  I stamped and die cut the main Cityscape image, and then stamped it several more times on scrap paper.  I cut apart the buildings, colored them all using various shades of BG Copic markers, then layered them up.  I am also entering this card at Where Creativity Meets C9 #26: Layers.





My next card uses Mini Skyline by TCW for a CAS thank you card.  I am also entering this card at CAS on Friday #143: Thank You Card.





My next two cards use Hero Arts Urban Skyline Bold Prints.  First, used vertically for a Father's Day Card that I am entering at Addicted to Stamps and More #313: Holiday (Father's Day).






This stamp also works in horizontal orientation, and I am entering this card at Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes.





Last up is a peek at a favor I made for the members of my book club.  They are small cubes of post-it notes, stamped with a literary quote and a couple of other, random images.  I packaged them in clear cello bags with a ribbon, and put them all in a basket.  I am entering this project at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything But a Card.

Happy Birthday



I made two birthday cards this week.  First up is a colorful card using my newest fox stamp set...Winter Fox.  I used the technique in the PTI Make it Monday #339: Pattern Frames. 




Next up is a masculine birthday card using the fall themed color scheme at Colorthrowdown #514.  Alot of gluing bits of paper to make this die work, but I really like the retro/funky look of this card.



I am also entering this card Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes.

CASology Week #316...Punctuation




Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is PUNCTUATION.  I found this cue to be challenging, but I also think it is one which encourages a lot of creativity and out of the box thinking.  I remembered PTI Grand Ampersand stamps, and used one of the ampersand dies to create a Clean and Simple wedding card.





Now it's your turn.  How does PUNCTUATION 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.

Time Out #119...Reminder...My Friend




There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this time is a theme challenge:



I decided to make a friendship card, as I am pretty well stocked with Breast Cancer cards.  Yay, because that means I haven't had to use any of my breast cancer stash of cards.  

I used Mon Ami stamps by CAS-ual Fridays, who are also our sponsor for this challenge.  I turned the sentiment into a stem for my flower.  I think perhaps that sentiment was designed for that purpose.


Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Marieke, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge.  CAS-ual Fridays is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.


This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.

3 Birthday Cards



Hi there.  I'm popping quickly for a mid week post to share 3 birthday cards.

First up is a card I made using the cutest stamps I just got from Lil Inker called Scooter Balloons.  I am entering this card at Seize the Birthday, where the topping is Travel.




While I had the stamps lined up in my Misti, I stamped and colored another version to enter at Addicted to Stamps & More #312: Make Your Mark.




My last card uses a packaging die from PTI In the Bag and I am playing along at PTI Make it Monday #338:  Using Packaging Dies on Cards.  I created a tag to go inside the bag, and when you pull the tag out, there is a birthday sentiment on it.  I am also entering this card at Simon Says Monday Challenge: Tag It.
