I Dig You

CASology WheelsGuest Designer Badge 2013

Yes…I DO KNOW that this set is retired BUT…two weeks ago this card was the top pick for the CASology challenge for ROYAL and this week I’m a Guest Designer. WOOO HOOO!!!  I AM SOOOOO excited to be asked that I just HAD to say YES!  Well, then the theme is wheels and I don’t have any NEW STUFF yet that does have WHEELS on it so I used this fun set!

Those of you who follow my blog know that I LOVE the CAS style.  I love using simple graphic images (like this one) and one of my favorite twists I like to do with CAS cards is using paper piercing.  I think the piercing adds a cool graphic element without adding more paper and ‘stuff’ to your card.

Week 47 - Wheels

The base of my card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and pierced (free hand around a die cut of a star) a star on the background.  This panel is added to the card base using dimensionals.  Oh…I always to the piercing on a separate panel so when you open the card you don’t see the back of the piercing.   I stamped the greeting using Early Espresso on Pear Pizzazz, cut into a banner and added to the card front.  Next I stamped the pieces of the truck using Real Red, Bermuda By, Basic Grey, Early Espresso and cut them all out.  I added some red brads (also retired) to the center of the wheels then added all the pieces using dimensionals.

So…you don’t want to miss out what the FABULOUS design team has done withe the WHEEL theme so check out CASology site!  And a BIG THANKS to them for asking me to be a Guest Designer this week!

Stippled Blossoms

SUOWeddingOh…it’s Tuesday and it’s time for another SUO challenge.  This time the challenge is weddings.  Hmmm…that is a tough one for me but I dug around and found I had this Mr & Mrs stamp (first time it’s seen ink!) and the pretty rose!  So put it together and I think I got me a wedding card!

The base of the card is Very Vanilla.  i took another piece of Very Vanilla, ran it through the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder and added to the card front.  Next I took another piece of Very Vanilla, stamped Mr. & Mrs in Baked Brown Sugar and then the & in Crisp Cantaloupe.  The & is cut out and added using dimensionals.  I added a piece of of Pistachio Pudding behind the panel then added to the card front.  I stamped the solid flower in Crisp Cantaloupe and the stipple in Cajun Craze.  The solid leaves is Pistachio Pudding and the Stipple Wild Wasabi.  These are cut out and added to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.

So make sure you join us over at the SUO challenge!  And check out what the other design team has been up to!
