Casology : Owl

Hi there!

I think you are going to have so much fun with this week's cue card at CASology  ... here it is...


My take:

owl you need is love card

And a closer look...

owl you need is love card

For interest, and to keep the design clean... I used only a couple of characteristic elements to create my owl focal point. A punny sentiment to complete the design :

Seize the birthday: Toppings of vellum or acetate

Hi there!

We have a fun new challenge at Seize the birthday for the next 2 weeks. You can play with our topping of vellum or acetate, or share any newly created birthday card with us. The choice is yours!

                                             Seize the Birthday

I stamped the butterfly from Stamperia with Versafine onyx black ink and added vellum wings.

I did that by scanning the stamped image, tracing it in my Silhouette programme, and cutting it afterwards.

Sentiment and flowers from a Hero arts sentiment set.

Vellum is so fabulous to make a really simple project something special!

I hope you will play along at Seize the birthday this fortnight!

Casology : Pretty

Hi there!

The cue card this week is actually so easy, because we all make pretty cards!

How will you interpret this week's challenge ?

See... pretty easy!!!

My take on the challenge:

And a second take...

For my first card, I stamped the sentiment from the "Truth is" stamp set by Casual Fridays 4 times to create a background for my smaller focal point.

For the second card, I used a larger cropped version of the same silhouette, but to keep it CAS, I toned down the sentiment by stamping it once only in the upper left corner.

2 cards to show the effect of scale on a CAS card. Do you have a favorite? I would love to hear your opinion!

The thankful sentiment and leaves are part of a Thanksgiving word set by Miss Kate cuttables.

I sprayed a subtle background with golden spray paint. and finished off the card with 3 golden pearls and a tiny bow die cut from a sheet of cork.

I want this dress ;)

Hi there!

Oh I LOVE the dress on the Runway this week! I could see myself wearing it, except maybe for those killer heals, I think I will look like Rebel Wilson on ELLEN last week!

Source: Vogue.com

The starting point for my design was the sweatheart(ish) neckline. I used an upside down heart (cropped) to mimic the neckline (white part). Further inspiration from the tone on tone navy lace. To achieve this I used my Silhouette sketch pens to draw the vine pattern and added a WOS to give a subtle shimmer.
If you look closer you will also see a tiny bow on the waistline. So I finished off the card with a magenta bow and flower accent.

A close up to show the shimmer:

I saved the sentiment for you:


I just can't stop taking photo's of my dear Sugar... Many of you asked me to show more of him, so here he is!

I got him a name tag this week !
