CASology GROWth
It's time for a new cue word over at CASology and we're focusing on growth this week!  Spring is definitely emerging in the landscape now and DS1 actually mowed the grass last week for the first time this year!  Things are growing! Week 245 - Grow I chose to combine two sets from STAMPlorations to create this simple design (All You Need is Coffee & Literary Caffeine-ations).  I masked the steam using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink.  The cup was stamped, fussy cut and paper pieced with decorative paper from my stash.  It was then popped up over the steam using foam adhesive.  I stamped the funny sentiment in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and added three brown gemstones to the mug.  That's it! I hope you'll visit the design team member and guest designer blogs and leave them a little blog love when you have a little time this week!  They've done such a great job providing inspiration this week!

CASology with ICING

CASology with ICING
It's Tuesday and time for a brand new cue word over at CASology!  Brainstorming should be rather sweet this week. Week 243 - Icing I used an older Hero Arts robot wooden stamp for this design.  It's from the 3 Robots set.  The simple, clean font sentiment is from the more recent Hero Arts Birthday Animal Silhouettes set.  I stamped the robot first in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloring it with Copic markers.  I then applied a thin layer of Molotow Art Masking Liquid to the middle of the robot to prevent it from being inked while creating the curvy line.  I used one of the curvy Landscape Dies from A Muse to create a stencil for the inked curve.  After making sure the masking liquid was dry, I used the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Spiced Marmalade (orange) and Faded Jeans (blue) to create the curved line.  I then removed the masking liquid from the robot and applied Orange Slice Stickles for a little sparkle and interest.  The main panel was adhered to a black piece of cardstock to frame it and then the assembled piece was popped up on the card base with foam adhesive.  I couldn't resist adding a couple of googly eyes to finish the design. Don't forget to leave the design team members and our guest designer a little blog love this week for all the wonderful inspiration they've created!  We love hearing from you! DT Badge
