CASology Week #354...Fog





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


I immediately thought of all that lovely cool fog in San Francisco, and decided to see if I could replicate that on a card.  I sponged some grey clouds on a piece of card stock, added a die cut bridge (Golden Gate Bridge, in my mind) and then covered the panel with vellum to soften the look and add to the overall foggy scene.






Now it's your turn.  How does FOG inspire you?


As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

I hope you play along this week.

My Crafty Visit



Lucky me....my niece came to visit for a few days, and she wanted to craft 24-7.  She was a quick study and made so many wonderful creations.  I was right along with her, and have 6 cards to post today.

First up is one of my favorites....it is amazing how easy shaker cards are when I have the right sized customized pouch!  I am entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #362:  Make Your Mark.





How about a swarm of penguins?  I think it's called a Waddle.  I forgot to leave a place for a sentiment on this one, so it will go inside, as I didn't want to cover anyone up in my group photo.  I am entering this card at Addicted to CAS #169: Creature, CAS Christmas October: Winter Scene, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Christmas.






My next card gave me a chance to show my niece the magic of heat embossing and dry embossing, and I am entering it at The Flower Challenge #37: CAS, The Library Challenge #43: The Secret Garden, and The Paper Players #462.






I am entering this following card at Paper Smooches October Challenge:  DT Inspiration...I was inspired by the cards in this post, and also Just Us Girls #508:  Designer Paper...some hombre watercolor paper by Lil Inkers.  Just love those bitty baby sharks.





Last up is a pair of cards I made using a blend of fall colors.  I couldn't decide if I wanted my die cut to have blending or the background to have blending, so I made one of each.

I am entering this card at Shopping Our Stash #406 and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Fall.





And, the other version...I am entering this at The Male Room #121:  Stay CAS.

Crafty Round-Up



Hello and happy Monday.  I'm popping in quickly before Zumba class to post a few cards I made over the weekend.

First up is this hoppy little birthday card, inspired by the sketch this week at MFT Sketch Challenge #457.  I am also entering this card at Seize the Birthday #175 with the topping of Add a Geometric Shape (circle), The Male Room #121: Stay CAS, and CAS on Friday #165: Masculine (this card is meant for a little boy birthday).









My next card is inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #342, where I flipped the sketch, and used some stacks of books for the two vertical elements.  I am also entering this card at Addicted to CAS #169: Creature (cat and worm), and Addicted to Stamps and More #361: Anything Goes.









 I made a second version of this card, and am entering it at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Think Pink and AAA Cards #150:  One Layer.







That's it for me right now.  Off to Zumba!!

Time Out #145...Reminder...hope





There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  This week, we challenge you to be inspired by this theme:







I have always loved the large scale of the Ruffled Ribbon Die from CAS-Fridays Stamps, and have used it so many times over the years.  For this card, I framed my simple die cuts using the PTI Pierced frames, for a really Clean and Simple Breast Cancer Awareness card.

Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Sidan, 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.

L'Shanah Tovah



I am just popping in quickly to wish all my Jewish friends L'Shanah Tovah.  Today is Rosh Hashanah, and the year is 5780.  Where does the time go?

I used a new set by Mama Elephant which was free with purchase called Happy Chic Wishes.  It is hard to see in this photo, but the 'happy' is stamped in gold ink.  I am entering this card at CAS(E) this Sketch #341 and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.







I did not get to make and send Rosh Hashanah cards this year, but whipped up this quickie, which is a prototype for next year.  Will someone please remind me next summer to get my Rosh Hashanah cards made in time!

A Sweet New Year to All
