CASology #384: Fox

 Hello to you!  We are creating "Foxy" new cards on the CASology Challenge blog today. I hope you will join us for the fun new challenge.

I tried to condense my stamping to the white square. Using the Hero Arts Hero Greetings set. I then placed a few tracks in a soft gray ink on my top folding kraft base to create movement.

Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

CASology #383: Envelope

 Hey there. There is a new challenge up on the CASology Challenge Blog today. There were so many ways you could go with this one.

Using a top folding natural white card base I stamped some red hearts in a triangle formation. Then using a red mini envelope I stamped the "XO" on a card sized to fit the envelope. Finally I used a strip of vellum to add my greeting over the envelope. All the stamps were from the Ellen Hutson set "Love You So".

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will join us for this challenge.

Stamplorations Sticker Monday

Hey there! I have some great new ideas for you today, all with a Valentines vibe.  They all still have the "clean and simple" feel that you should come to expect from me. Lol. 

My first card started with a water color panel that I painted a loose watercolor heart with several colors. I then used the Row of Hearts stencil from Stamplorations to emboss the panel by running it through my die cutting machine. I trimmed the panel down and set it aside to dry completely.  on another scrap of watercolor paper I painted another heart like the first one. Now you know these were not perfect to line up because they are just painted loosely by hand. after the second panel was dry I placed one of the Love Is clear stickers over the painted heart and trimmed it down. I then tied the light pink, gingham ribbon around the sticker panel and mounted it to the embossed panel with foam tape. This all was added to a top folding A2 white card base and then I added a few drops and the small pink heart with Stickels.

I wanted to try the clear stickers on vellum to add a frosted element to my card. I stenciled the plum hearts over a white panel with the Rows of Hearts stencil then masked off the faux ribbon and brushed color over the panel. Attaching the vellum and faux chipboard heart to my card front. Finishing off with some Stickles pearl.

My final card uses a technique I tried in December with tissue paper behind the clear Mixed Media 2 stickers. I just die cut the hearts from pink tissue and using a two way glue pen attached them to the panel before adding the clear sticker. I love the way they show through the sticker. The base card was also stenciled with the Rows of Hearts stencil and by cutting strips from a larger sticker I can create my own washi tape for the edge of the card.

I hope this stirs your own creative juices to try using clear stickers on your projects. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
