A CASology Valentine

2.09.2016

The count down is on. Valentine's Day projects are most likely beginning to settle into that last minute panic mode.  I have two elementary aged school children with classroom parties this Friday and do you think I've gotten anything made yet?!  Did you know I am probably one of the world's finest procrastinators?  Don't worry, they'll go to school with cute little gifts in hand!  I have plenty of time...three entire days!


CASology will provide plenty of inspiration this week if you're still in need of some!  With a cue word focusing entirely on valentine, you won't be disappointed!

I love clean & simple valentines!  This word made me think of Cupid and his arrows.  Having no image of that diaper clad lad, I went with a single arrow and a sentiment from Uniko Studio's All Occasion Sentiments #5 set.


The main panel is spritzed with pink Heidi Swapp Color Shine.  I stamped the sentiment in black and then added the glitter adorned arrow.  I added dimension by popping up the framed main panel on the card base.

Be sure and go say a quick hello to the design team members & this week's guest designer!  They work so hard each week to create inspiration!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

CASology Glitter

2.02.2016

It's Tuesday and time for a brand new cue word over at CASology!  This week's cue will most likely have you smiling...or muttering under your breath as you try to tame all that sparkle in your craft space.


I went with the chunky stuff myself.  Still a challenge to clean up, however!

Stamps:  DeNami Design (You Make Me Feel, Little Skunk)

With DeNami Design as our sponsor this week, my eyes settled on this cute little skunk and the sentiment just seemed to want to join him, so I dug that out too!  I simply watercolored behind the sentiment to frame it and then added some heart shaped chunky glitter for a little color pop.  These elements were framed with black and the entire main panel was popped up with foam dots for dimension.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers has some rather awesome sponsors!  We're giving one of them a shout out each Monday on the blog, starting today!  Uniko Studio is in the spotlight today, so be sure and go check out all the details on the blog!


I'm showcasing a simple coffee themed card over there, but wanted to share another one here!  Now that February has arrived, I couldn't resist designing a Valentine's Day themed coffee card!

Stamps:  Uniko Studio (I Love Coffee, All Occasions Sentiments #5)

This design is pretty much one layer with some very simple embellishments added for shine.  Pink Heidi Swapp spritz is responsible for the colored background.


Have a marvelous Monday!

CASology Adoration

1.26.2016

It's time for some CASology love!  A new cue word is posted and ready to inspire!


I went the obvious route, creating a love themed card.  It is almost Valentine's Day, after all!

Stamps/Dies:  Concord & 9th
I added a little movement to the design by drawing a flight path for the snowflake.  I added dimension to the snowflake by simply layering the dies & adding a heart shaped pearl.  The bold sentiment is from Concord & 9th's Map Love set.

Be sure and go say a quick hello to the design team members & this week's guest designer!  They work so hard each week to create inspiration!


Guest Designer:  Jenny
