CASology Week #263: Bud





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

When I saw the cue word, I thought of best buds, like best friends.

I masked and stamped a little scene with some critters from MFT.  Wouldn't you like to roast marshmallows with your buddies?





Now it's your turn.  How does BUD 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.

Happy Birthday




Hello and happy Wednesday.  I have 1 card to post, and it was inspired by this card by Lizzie Jones.  As soon as I saw Lizzie's card, I knew just what I would make for PTI's Create Along With Us challenge.




I was inspired by the wicked elixer bottles Lizzie stamped across her card front, and also how she cut her panel to make a space for her sentiment.  I used the solid vases from Mega Gracious Vases and a flower from the original Gracious Vases set.

I am also linking this card up at CAS on Friday #114 where the challenge is birthday and Simon Says Wednesday where the challenge is to Add a Sentiment.

CASology Week #262: Prickly





Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is PRICKLY.  I immediately thought of a cactus.  They are so very prickly.  They are also just about the only sort of plant I can manage to keep alive on my own.



I used some cactus stamps from PTI Putting Down Roots to make a housewarming card.

Now it's your turn.  How does PRICKLY 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.

Three Cards for the Weekend



I have 3 cards to share today.  First up is a card using this week's Make it Monday #294 technique. The idea was to have a monochrome card with a pop of color.  I used card front and die cuts in Ocean Tides and my pop of color was Stacked Sentiments stamped in red.



I am also linking this card up at Seize the Birthday and Simon Says Monday: Happy Birthday.





My next card was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #234.  I used flowers from Humming Along.





Last up is a card using my very favorite Christmas Critters.  I am entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday: For a Child.

Our Guest Designer this week is Trina, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge.  STAMPlorations is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

CASology Week #261: Safari




Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is SAFARI.  I have never been on a real safari, but San Diego Zoo Safari Park is a pretty good substitute.  A lot closer than an African safari, and a place I used to take my kids to when they were younger.

This cue word gave me a good opportunity to pull out a new set from PTI called Jungle Buddies.   This lion looks way friendlier than the ones I saw at the zoo, and I added some teeny googlie eyes, just for fun.





Now it's your turn.  How does SAFARI 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.

CASology Week #260: Juicy




Hello and happy Tuesday.   Wow, what a week we had last week, when we celebrated our 5th anniversary in such a big way.  I hope you had a chance to play along and maybe even win a prize from one of our generous sponsors.

It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is juicy.  What does juicy mean to you?  For me, I kept thinking of 'fruit juicy' which lead me to imagine a freezer full of refreshing and colorful, fruit juicy popsicles.  (Funny how the mind works).

I used my Misti to stamp a row of overlapping popsicles from PTI Summer Sweetness across the bottom of my card.  I love how I am able to get things lined up perfectly now.




Now it's your turn.  How does JUICY 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 Weekend



I had some crafty time this week.  YAY!!

First up is a card with color blocking for this week's PTI Make it Monday #292.  I am also entering this card at CAS on Friday #113: Exotic.






Next up is a card inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #232.  The paper in the negative space is some old Stampin' Up designer paper, and it is the 'old' for JUGS #404 challenge.  I am also entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes.







I took a slightly different approach to the color scheme at Color Throwdown #453.  I made a set of 3 cards, each one using one of the colors from the challenge.









I used the techniques from this video for my cards.  I traced a ribbon spool for the pink and green balloons, after using the SSS A2 card edge die for the yellow one and not being completely happy with the shape.





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

Time Out #88...Reminder...Sending You a Little Sunshine





There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this time is inspired by words, and we have this quote from Roald Dahl to inspire us.

'If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely' 

I pulled out Hello Sunshine from PTI and stamped just a quarter of a sun right over my quote.



Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Toni, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge.


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