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!
