Up, Up and Away

BalloonsOkay…I’m not real sure how SIMPLE this card is that I did for the casology challenge for the word UP, but I have to say…I LOVE IT!

The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 of Whisper White.  I took another panel of Whisper White and constructed my scene.  The clouds are Whisper White cupcake ‘frosting’ that I ran through the Fancy Fan Folder.  The one Balloon is Basic Grey, cut out and added with dimensionals.  The other balloon is Calypso Coral and Basic Grey, cut out and added using dimensionals.  The greeting is stamped in Basic Grey and I added two little hearts from the 2-step owl punch.  The panel is added using dimensionals.

So…not really all the simple for the CAS but I do LOVE IT!

Set(s): Up, Up and Away
Paper: Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Ink: Basic Grey, Calpyso Coral
Other: Cupcake Punch, 2-step Owl Punch, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Dimensionals


Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!


Word Play

ArrowHere’s a fun, quick little CAS card.  The casology challenge this week is the word up.  At first I thought…nah…think I’ll pass on that but then I remember this set and thought…yep…definitely CAS material.

The base of the card is Whisper White 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.  I ran it through the stripes folder (kind of give the feeling of going ‘up’ with the stripes) then rounded the bottom right corner.  Too another piece of Whisper White, stamped the greeting using Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Basic Grey and Real Red.  The arrow was stamped in Real Red on another piece, cut out and added later using dimensionals.   But before adding the arrow, I used my Essentials Paper Piercing templates to make a pierced arrow.  It’s a little difficult to see on the photo but it’s there.  I added the extra stamped arrow, rounded the bottom right corner and added to the card front using dimensionals.

Well…I actually did two cards for the casology challenge.  Make sure you check out my Up, Up and Away card!
