Hello friends! Tuesday has rolled around, again, and that means time for a brand spankin' new CASology challenge and this week we have a real doosie for ya!! The cue word this week is "flame" and all the deets concerning the challenge can be found here. Our special guest designer this week is the very talented Bethany!!!
Once, again, I struggled with this week's cue word. Don't it make ya feel good to know that even design team members struggle with the cue word??? Anywhoo... when I first saw the cue word the only thing that came to my simple mind was a campfire. Which would be fine except for one small thing... I have no campfire stamps. I was about to jump on the Google train to do some research when inspiration finally struck. I remembered that I had a Hero Arts set called "Birthday Candles"... perfect for the challenge! However the candles are on the large side so I knew that in order to keep things CAS I would need to use only one candle. I picked a candle and then stamped it in the center of my card base using yellow ink. The candle was then stamped again on patterned paper, trimmed out and popped up on the card base. I stamped the flame portion of the candle on white card stock and added two different colors of Stickles (Paprika and Buttercup), blending them together. Once dry I trimmed it out and popped it up on the card base. A banner was cut using a My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Stax die, the sentiment stamped and then each end of the banner was scored and folded as you see and then attached.
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, Bethany. Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!
