CASology INSECTS

CASology INSECTS
It's Tuesday and time for a brand new cue word over at CASology!  This week it's all about insects and what they make us think of! Week 252 - Insect I chose to use the ever adorable Cute as a Bug sets (Well Preserved Jars set and Party Elements set) by Clear & Simple Stamps to create this get well card.  I created the spider web using one of the thin line images and then added a little black bug, coating it with Crystal Effects for some shine.  The spider was stamped dangling from the top of the card.  I kept the color scheme black and white to keep it super clean and simple!  I added a black piece of cardstock behind the main panel to bring out the black a bit more.  I just love the font of the sentiment!  So classy! I hope you'll play along with us this week as we explore what this cue word makes everyone think of!  We're currently waiting for a praying mantis egg to hatch in our house as a summer project for the kids.  Truthfully, it kind of creeps me out, but I love seeing the excitement in at least two of the boys as they anticipate the arrival of these crazy creatures!  Amazing creatures, but so not my thing!  Eeek! The design team members and this week's guest designer would love to hear from you, so go give them a little virtual wave if you have time this week! DT Badge

CASology FOLIAGE

CASology FOLIAGE
It's Tuesday and time for a brand new cue word over at CASology!  I think many of us are wishing for spring and the return of plant life in the landscape, so we're jumpstarting things a bit this week! I think of ladybugs and caterpillars when I think of foliage, so I combined bugs with a branch on my design!  I used Clear & Simple's Cute as a Bug set and stamped the two caterpillars in black ink before coloring with green Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  The branch and leaves were stamped on the card base before the caterpillars were attached with foam pieces.  I added the pretty sentiment in black ink.  To finish things, I applied a little sparkle with a Crafter's Companion Clear Overlay Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and a little red heart shaped gemstone from A Muse Studio. I hope you'll take some time and visit the design team member and guest designer blogs this week!  There is so much beautiful inspiration to see! DT Badge

2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
Happy Friday!  I had a little extra craft time yesterday and made another card for the oh-so-fun Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with the help of a little of that creative fuel called coffee!  It seems like I've been drinking more of it the last couple weeks as winter weather finally settles in around me! Winter 2016 Blog Hop I've been itching to use the fantastic Sip on This set from Clear & Simple Stamps!  I stamped the different sections of the cup in red and green and then added some sparkle with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker.  The popped up circle is die cut using a Nestabilities circle die and stenciled with green ink using The Crafter's Workshop Mini Microbial Stencil.  The coffee cup is popped up right next to the circle with a little thicker foam dot to make it slightly higher.  The fun sentiment is also from the Sip on This set and is stamped in black.  I added some simple gold star and clear circle sequins as embellishments.  I am in love with this stamp set and, now that I've finally inked it up, I can't wait to brainstorm for more coffee themed designs! Clear and Simple Stamps Only a few more hours to link up to the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I'm ready to start hopping myself, so need to grab some decaf this evening and go check out some of the inspiration in the hop's gallery!  Can't wait! Have a wonderful weekend!Continue Reading...
