CASology Week 217: CUTE

Welcome to Week 217 at CASology!



I think you are really going to enjoy our cue word this week! I picked this CUTE Panda image from this week's sponsor, Kitty Bee Designs, to use on my card.


  


The digital image is printed on white cardstock then cut with a stitched rectangle die. The lines of the SSS You diecut nestle nicely into the sides of my sweet panda and a coordinating sentiment is stamped directly on the panel. This image panel is popped up on a green embossed panel that is attached to the card base. The wiggly embossed lines made me think of a stand of bamboo.

CASology Week 216: FRAME

Welcome to Week 216 at CASology!




We have another fun word to inspire you this week: FRAME. My first thought was to use a window frame die as the focal point of my card, but after searching high and low in the office, the die was nowhere to be found so I moved onto Plan B and started looking at my nesting die sets. Taping two Nestabilities Labels 2 dies on a piece of lime cardstock allowed me to cut a frame with one pass through my Big Shot.




A white frame in the same way, stacking the outer frames to give a little more depth and stamping a Technique Tuesday sentiment in the center piece. The stamped center is embossed before being adhered to the card base. A trio of enamel dots add a bit more color and interest to the card.

CASology week 215: BARK

Welcome to Week 215 at CASology!



When you saw our cue word this week is BARK, did you think tree or dog first?  My first thought was tree and I started looking through my tree, branch and woodgrain dies, stamps and embossing folders for inspiration, settling on a Sizzix woodgrain embossing folder to take center stage.




After the gray panel is embossed, a sentiment cluster is created with a stamped banner and a trio of MFT leaves.




Check out the Design Team cards for more terrific BARK ideas!
