CCC #26... winter wishes

Hello friends!!  Tuesday has arrived and that means time for a brand new CASology challenge!! This week the cue word is "winter"... a perfect choice for this time of year wouldn't you say?    All the challenge details can be found here.   This week our special guest designer is Marlou!!  I know you will be wowed by her sample!  



I had several ideas as to what I would make for this week's cue word, but honestly I was feeling a bit lazy and opted to use the current Retro Sketch to help me put my card together.  I have said it before and I will say it again... if you are having a problem figuring out how to put together a CAS card a clean and simple sketch can be very, very helpful!!   The stamps I used are from a fun Taylored Expressions stamp set call Love Grows here.  The image was stamped using Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and then die cut using a Spellbinders Labels 18 die.   I colored the image with Copic markers, as well as a Tuxedo Black marker and then added the little snowflake button (a gift from my sweet friend, Nat) and a twine bow.  The image was then mounted over some My Mind's Eye All is Bright washi tape.  Once that was done I stamped the sentiment.   You can still add embellishments to a CAS design, as long as you keep them to a minimum.

Thanks for stopping by.... make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, Meghan and this week's guest designer, Marlou, Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Taylored Expressions; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers; Washi Tape:  My Mind's Eye; Twine:  My Mind's Eye; Snowflake button - unknown; Die:  Spellbinders
