Hello friends!! Happy Tuesday! Time for a brand new CASology challenge. This week our cue word is one that is sure to make you smile! Or maybe even giggle! You can find all the challenge details here. And we are joined this week by super talented guest designer, Cindy!!
I must admit that I really struggled with this week's cue word, giggle. My shoulder was bothering me for most of last week and when that happens it really saps my energy... creative or otherwise. Couple that with the fact that I don't own a ton of stamp sets that lend themselves to the cue word I really had a hard time. Finally I settled on this sentiment from the Stampin Up! set "Feel Goods" (Is that a weird name for a stamp set or what?? I thought it was a typo, but that is the name. I really "head scratcher", lol!) I wanted to show that you can create great CAS cards by just using a simple sentiment. I did jazz things up a bit by die cutting the sentiment using a My Favorite Things Jumbo Fishtail Flag Stax die and adding the sequins, but the sentiment really takes center stage. I also created a subtle background on the black cardstock by running it through my Big Shot with a piece of burlap. Love that look.
Thanks for stopping by... I cannot wait to see what up related ideas all you super talented papercrafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, and Meghan and our guest designer, Cindy!!
