Hello friends!! Tuesday has rolled around once, again, and that means time for a brand new CASology challenge! This week the cue word is "blue" and when I saw it I was happy, happy, happy because blue is one of my favorite colors. I think there are just so many directions you can go in with this one. All the deets can be found here. This week we are being sponsored by Avery Elle stamps. I don't own any Avery Elle stamps, but I have checked them out and they sure are lovely. Our guest designer this week is the very talented May.
As indicated there are many directions you can go in with a cue word like "blue". But for me there was only one: I wanted to use my MFT zig zag border dies and varying shades of blue cardstock. As I considered what cardstock I would use I remembered that I had these cardstock packs from Hero Arts and Penny Black that contain coordinating shades of various colors (blue, green, etc.). One of the packs I had contained three coordinating shades of blue... YAY! I die cut each shade using the large zig zag die and then arranged them to create an ombre look on the card. To make the sentiment stand out I die cut the letters from black card stock. Absolutely no stamping on this super simple and super clean card.
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, May. Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!
