CASology #382: Unite

 Hello. Hope you are all staying healthy. Today we have a new cue card up on the CASology Challenge Blog. Our new cue is...

The first thought that came to mind was to be "united in marriage". So a wedding card was in order. I took my cue for the color palette from the decorators that have been using so much black with white and gold or brass hardware for accents.

I used a top folding A2 white card base that I added a 4 by 5.25" white panel to using fun foam to pop it up. Just a couple of glitter gold washi tape stripes and a die cut from the Mr & Mrs Kaiser Craft die. Super simple with a sparkly punch.

The team has created some fun cards for you to check out. Then I hope to see your card added to our challenge.

Stamplorations' Sticker Monday and Discount Code


Hey there. Time for a new Stamplorations Sticker Monday post. I can't wait to share some coffee goodness with you today! For my first card I used the Coffee HeavenJust Caffeinate and Bits of Washi #1 clear stickers. I also stamped the cute little coffee cup for the Sweet Kindness stamp set.

You might notice a theme here, kraft card bases and coffee. With my next card I was going for a graffiti, mixed media feel. I used Coffee HeavenJust Caffeinate, Mixed Media Backgrounds #2, and Bits of Washi #1 clear stickers, the Coffee Cup stencil and the After Coffee stamp set. Talk about throwing it all in. LOL. I wanted to try layering stickers over each other. Some of the stickers are three deep on my card and they still work great!

My final card today used another sticker from the Coffee Heaven set and a fun idea with heart die cuts. The two small, kraft hearts create a wrap-around hug for my greeting.

I also used the Row of Hearts stencil to dry emboss my background and the mug from the Sweet Kindness stamp set.

That is it for me today. I hope you enjoyed 
the krafty, coffee lovin' goodness!

CASology #381: Memories

Welcome to 2021. Today we have a new challenge up on the CASology Challenge Blog

So looking back we will share our memories.

This card uses a technique I like to call ink layering to create a one layer card that feels like it has dimension. I used the Stampin' Up! set Travel Post stamped in cocoa, linen and cranberry ink. Then I over-stamped the greeting in Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear detail powder. Finally rounding the corners of my rustic ivory card stock. This technique works best when you use a light, medium and dark ink. I hope you will join us in this challenge of memories.
