CASology #398

 Hi All

Time for our last challenge of 2021 at CASology and our cue word is 'Above'.

Here is my take:

I went through a few ideas for this and after looking through my dies came up with the idea of layering dies on top if each other-one 'above' the other!

I have used used an open die 'above' the solid die and cut it in vellum-vellum really is a great idea when making CAS cards!

Our Design Team have come up with some great inspiration for you-pop on over to our blog and have a look!
Then enjoy playing along!!

Time Out-Precious!

Hi All

Been a while since I have been crafty but I needed a card for my Mum and Dad's 59th Wedding Anniversary so got to it!

My craft buddy Anushree makes some super gifts and she made one for my Mum and Dad-have a look below and I based my card on this. You can see Anushree's super collection of gifts here

As you can see I got the woodgrain in using an embossing plate and the gold in by gold embossing some splatter stamps then layered up with the die cuts. I really love the card and was so pleased I did after so long not crafting!

Here is Anushree's super gift:

I am popping this off to Time Out-cue word-Precious...nothing more precious than 'love'-they also have a DT call, check it out.

Have a good day x

CASology #397

 Hi All

We have a new challenge at CASology and our cue word is 'Type'.

I did have a few ideas for this but decided to go the obvious route and use a typewriter set but I bet you can think of many other ideas for this word!

This sweet typewriter stamp set and die are both from Newton's Nook Designs
I stamped and die cut the image deciding to go with these fun colours as I thought it could be used for lots of occasions and either a guy or gal! Who wouldn't love a green typewriter!
I grounded the image with some strips of coloured card.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Claire. I am a long time admirer of Claire's cards and have followed her for years. Pop on over to her blog here and you will see why!

Pop on over to CASology and see what the fab Design Team and Claire have made to inspire you.

I will enter this into Fusion-inspired by the photo!

For Dad xx

 Hi All

My Dad is very, ill and without going into details.....needs any spare prayers, strength and hugs you can send his way.

I have wanted to make him a card all week but just couldn't get my head around it but yesterday saw the colours at Less Is More-Purple and Yellow, my fav card colour combo and flicked through my stamps and found a sentiment to suit-Visible Images

Love you Dad xx

Sending Hugs

 Hi All

I have a few cards I need to make so had a hunt around blogland to find some challenges to inspire me to get inky.

The 3 challenges you see below inspired me to create this:

Just Us Girls-photo-the flowers I loved and naturally the colours-I inked and coloured in with copics.

CAS on Friday-sketch-used for the design

AAA Cards-no layers and sending hugs-this is off abroad so one layer is perfect PLUS my fav kinda card!

 A Happy Smile to you All,

A card for you today using some of my very first stamps and dies-I got them from Papertreyink.

This was inspired by the sketch at CAS Colour and Sketches
I used some scrap card that had been previously sponged to die cut the leaf and just picked out the blue to stamp the water splash.

Have a fun day xx
