CASology #348: Shimmer

Hello. All of our CASology Challenges from here on out will be two week challenges. This gives everyone more time to work on your card ideas. Today's challenge is all about "shimmer" and our fabulous sponsor is STAMPlorations.





 My card started with a Tim Holtz watercolor panel that I painted the hearts in a pale pink and yellow. When dry I used the same colors to add a few splatters. Then covered the pink heart with clear Wink of Stella to add my shimmer. When dry I die cut the Love die from Simon Says Stamp from the panel and three from white card stock stacking and gluing together. The greeting is from SSS Tiny Words set stamped on a scrap of white and popped up with foam tape. Close up photos show more of the shimmer.


I am sure the team has some great cards for you to check out. Then come back and share your shimmery card with us on the blog. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

CASology #338: Citrus

Hey there. A little bright and cheery for you today. It couldn't be anything different with a cue like citrus at the CASology Challenge blog.



Sponsor:  Uniko

On my white panel I stamped the frame from Stampin Up', then masked the area around it and stamped the lemonade glass from Provo Craft in the frame. Colored it with markers and stamped the overlapped greeting. Finally I added a little Wink of Stella for sparkle and mounted it to an A2 yellow card.


Now check out the teams great projects. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

CASology #346: Ring

Hey all. Hoping your week is off to a great start. We have a new challenge up on the CASology Challenge Blog this morning.



Sponsor:  STAMPlorations

My card uses both shimmer white and gold cardstock today. I die cut the rings from the gold and the card base is white Shimmer that I stenciled the gold rays on. The greeting is from Papertrey Ink and is stamped in Versafine black ink. The light stenciling draws the eye in still leaving plenty of white space.


The team has some fun cards to share with you so go check them out! Thanks so much for stopping by, Sue.

Time Out for Nature

Hey there! Happy Wednesday to you. I am at bible school this week and am pretty much whooped. Three hours with 80 children takes a lot out of you. Todays card is from a great small company of Uniko. I received this set as a prize over a year ago and love to use it. Today it is a one layer card with great shading built in the layering of the flower.
 This fit the Time Out challenge for a nature card with a one-layer twist.
My next card fit the Uniko Anything Goes/Masculine, the Less is More color challenge and the Addicted to CAS challenge of Father. It uses the Worlds Greatest set from PTI. I added white accents on the ties with a white gel pen.


Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

CASology #345: Calm

Good morning to you!  There is a new challenge cue up on the CASology Challenge blog this morning.


This will be my first Christmas card of many as we get closer to the Christmas season. I chose a single layer card with a heavy weight white card base. Stamping the star background from the Essentials by Ellen set Wonky Backdrops with a rock and roll inking technique. Then stamping the tree from The Stamp Market Tiny Trees and Hello Bluebird's Typed Christmas in GinaK Amalgam ink. I love the way the two colors of ink blended in the background. I am sure the team has some fabulous cards to share with you so go check them out!


Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
