CASology Week #122 :: Flag!

It's time for another CASology cue card:


I'm in the festive mood after last week's 25 Days of Tags "Festive" cue card!  Since we created tags last week, I figured it might be time to bust out a festive card!

And here is my card:
Supplies:  Stamps [Lawn Fawn, Stampin Up], Card Stock [Neenah], Dies [Lawn Fawn, Mama Elephant], Punch [Stampin Up]

I had a lot of fun balancing these sweet little birdies on their twig.  I originally had just the birds, twig and banners/flags on an A2 card but they seemed a little lost so I added a small frame to draw the eye toward the center.  I used a stamp and punch set from Stampin Up that I won from Lori Hairston's blog.  She has links to some of the most adorable clip art out there!

We are sponsored this week by Stamplorations! Their November release is live as of yesterday so you might want to check them out!

CASology Week #121 ~ Festive!!

It's time for another CASology cue card:


This week the CASology design team is participating in Tracey McNeely's 25 Tags of Christmas.  So our cards aren't cards this week, they are tags!


Here is my tag:



Supplies:  Cardstock [Neenah], Dies [Papertrey Ink, Simon Says Stamp], Stamp [Taylored Expressions]

I actually found it pretty difficult to create a clean and simple tag.  My first try was so not clean and simple.  I had to just play for a while with some snowflake dies and a tag to find a layout I liked that was also clean and simple.

I want to reassure you that you DO NOT have to create a tag to take part in the challenge.  You can still create a card using the cue card "Festive" but if you want to create a tag that would be amazing!  If you want to be super clever, you could create a card with a tag on it!

I really hope you stop by Tracey's blog and check out her 25 Tags of Christmas.  Tracey has lined up prizes from the following amazing companies:

Reverse Confetti

But wait, there's more!  Comment on this post before midnight on Wednesday November 26.  I'll pick a random comment and pass that name along to Tracey to be included in the draw.  All winners will be drawn on Friday November 28.

Oops....

For those of you who saw my post before I took it down, my Paper Crafter's Library post is actually Thursday November 13, not Thursday November 6.  My mistake.  I hope you'll pop over there next Thursday to check it out!

CASology Week #120 Sea!

It's time for another CASology cue card:


And here is my card:


I have become slightly [every so slightly, mind you] obsessed with the card on this post by Nichol Magouirk.  I recreated her card myself [with my own twists of course].  Now her card is not what I would classify as a clean and simple one.  So, I took the individual elements and made separate cards with them.

Just for fun, here is another:


I think featuring portions of a not-so clean and simple card that you love and then turning it into a card more in your style is a great way to "make a card style your own."

Our sponsor this week is the oh-so-generous Cindy from Cindy B Designs.

CASology Week #117 Candy

It's time for another CASology cue card:


And here is my card:

Supplies:  Cardstock [Neenah, Recollections], Candy Corn Collage die [Papertrey Ink], Stamps [Milk and Cookies] Lawn Fawn.

This was a teeny bit fiddly to put together as I had to  die cut the collage die three times and keep all the little bits.  I accomplished this by cutting it once in white.  I removed it from the plate and then once each in yellow and orange on opposite ends of the plate.  I took the plate to my desk and used my Pick-Me-Up stick from Silhouette to pick up and place all the bits.  It actually went pretty fast!

Our sponsor this week is Stamplorations.  Have you seen their poinsettia stamp set?  I think it would be just so much fun to colour!
