CASology #380: Snowman

Hey there. The CASology Challenge Blog had a new challenge up on the blog. Our new cue card is snowman. 

 Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Stamplorations.

On a white panel I stamped the greeting outlines from the Joy stamp set from Stamplorations in Versafine black ink. I stamped the fill-in Joy with mint ink. Then I die cut the 
Hero Art's snowman from the panel and white fun foam. On a white A2 card I stamped the snow flakes in mint ink and mounted the snowman with the fun foam to pop him off the card front. Using a scrap of mint card stock I stamped the joy again and trimmed to a tag shape tying to to the snowman with black bakers twine. This created a clean, graphic card.

I hope you will plan on joining us for this fun challenge.

Stamplorations Sticker Monday and a Discount Code

 Hello! I am excited to be with you again to share some fun ideas with Stamploration's clear stickers. Today my main focus is Birthday cards with the Happy, Happy sticker set.

Using Kathryn's Big Wish stamp set, I stamped and no-line colored the balloons on a white panel and then positioned my sticker and die cut the panel. Here is a little tip: if your sticker does not cover your entire die cut use clear packing tape to finish covering the area. I then tied the bakers twine over the seam where the sticker and packing tape meet.

My next card uses a technique where you coat the back of the sticker with clear glitter and apply it over a brightly colored panel.

Using the Gift Builder 1 die to cut a window on my front panel, framing the greeting from the Happy, Happy sticker set. I then filled the gift area with glossy accents. With my final card today I wanted to see how alcohol markers would work with the stickers. Good news, they worked great!

The crazy part is I wanted to make a plaid so the sticker has vertical stripes drawn on the front with the markers. Then the sticker was placed on card stock that has horizontal stripes creating a fun plaid.

I used the Circles All Over Texture plate to give my base card  a little something. I hope you enjoyed these ideas and can get a jump on your 2021 birthday cards.
