Season's Greetings - Festive Friday!

Season's Greetings - Festive Friday!

Well I think I pulled this inspiration out!
I have blinged it, but I think
mellowed it with the soft grey.
I hope that you can be inspired by the wonderful
 DT creations at Festive Friday!

Join in (Here!)

I pulled out some very old school supplies.
Mini glass beads and the tacky double side papers!
I copic'd the candle and then layered the tacky
and then mini glass beads!
For the candle shine, some glossy accents 
and mini glue pen add funky yellow mini stars 
and more glass beads!

Pretty Vibrant, I LIKE!

CASology CUE Card #90: Note!

I hope that you are inspired to join us this week.

You all have been working your best at making CAS cards, 

and we have been so lucky to be able to enjoy them 

in the Gallery!


The Wonderful Sponsor this week is:

Check out their brilliant NEW Releases!
I am crushing on the set with the hedgehogs!!

I wanted an old world feel with a modern flair

This Momenta Cardstock is double sided and so artistic
I had to use some for an elegant note card
Mama Elephant Fair Feathers Stamps 

Some CAS Design Tips:

- One layer is less bulky and perfect for CAS cards
- Minimal imagery keeps it from being "busy" or cluttered
- Lots of FREE or open, "white" space simplifies the design
- "Less is More" on colors keeps it pleasingly CAS

I added a panel, and popped up the image.
Keeping the color neutral keeps the CAS feeling alive!

Join us at CASology this week!
This week's SPECIAL 
Guest Designer is:    Dena

Maureen Merritt -- Please stop by and say farewell !

Maureen is a great designer and we will see her around!!!

One of Lesley's THE CHALLENGE cards
Inspired me to do this card, 
She used the retired hostess set
Simply Soft, which after I saw that card I HAD to have.
The set I used is the Stampin' Up! more current 
set that you can still get called
Happy Watercolor

My last card went way overboard for me on layers, 
so I simplified this go round.
This is still not a CAS card, but with this sketch, I love it!
