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.

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.
