It’s Tuesday and time again for a new cue word over at CASology!  Feel you’re lacking in clean and simple mojo lately?  Be sure and take a look at this week’s gallery for inspiration!

Working in a health profession, I thought of medical things when I started brainstorming.  I finally settled on a cure for the blues.  I tend to be attracted to people with positive vibes.  I find that spending time with those who possess a positive attitude really does have a positive effect on my own spirits!  I think you could safely say happiness is contagious!

I used Sweet Stamp Shop’s Smile More stamp set to create this clean and simple design.  I stamped two of the photos by masking the images.  The image at the forefront was stamped and fussy cut before being popped up with foam dots to add a little dimension.  I then colored the smiling hearts on each photo with a red Copic marker and added a little Crystal Effects to the red heart on the popped up image.  That’s it!  Using your main image in groups of three works quite well in CAS design.  I decided to use selective coloring on this particular image because it is a bit large and I wanted to preserve that beloved white space!

How about you?  What does this week’s cue word make you think of?  So many possibilities and you can even join me outside the box with your brainstorming, if you’d like!


I hope you’ll stop by and leave the rest of the design team and this week’s guest designer a little blog love this week!  They create such awesome inspiration each week for the CASology challenges!
