CASology Week #242: TEXT

Welcome to Week 242 at CASology!




As a font junkie, I love this cue word! I did end up going with a modern take on the word text. As the mom of teens, I think we might communicate via text more than any other method. Heaven help them if they have to actually answer a phone and talk to someone!?

I used the MFT Smart Phone die and Friend Request stamps to creat my little birthday conversation.




The text bubbles are popped up over the phone for a little dimension.




For more great ideas, check out the Design Team cards!

Muse #208 + Simon Says Stamp

I have an unexpected, very free weekend with my son deciding to join my husband on a little road trip. My daughter is in and out between work and friends, but requires very little from me. Let's just say, I rarely hear "is there anything for lunch?" or "what's for dinner?" from her. In fact, when she texted to say she was on her way home from work last night, she asked if I needed anything.💗

Projects at the top of my "to do" list are being ignored as I alternate between organizing and playing in the office. This is a quick post to share a card inspired by Muse #208 and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to Use More Than One Die or Punch.

From Jenni's Muse card, I was inspired by the gingham, pink and onesie to make this card.




I pulled gingham paper from my stash to cut the Paper Smooches Onesie die, heat embossed a heart and mounted it on a mini-scalloped stitched oval die from MFT. The Lawn Fawn sentiment is stamped in two colors for added interest.

I hope to have a couple more cards to share this afternoon!

CASology Week 241: MELT

Welcome to Week 241 at CASology!




STAMPlorations is our sponsor this week and generously provided a few of the Design Team members with stamps or a die for our MELT challenge. Shery sent me one of her own designs, Holiday Expressions: Yuletide Cheer, and this adorable image and the late winter storm last week helped me come up with the idea of a snowman repeating the mantra "let it snow" while hoping to avoid the winter melt into spring.




The snowman was stamped and masked on a white panel, with a sketchy black line added to ground the image. The mask allowed me to add a very subtle inked blue sky before adding a few aqua and red details.

The sentiment was added three times onto a thought bubble die cut and popped up over the stamped panel.




For more terrific ideas, check out the Design Team cards!
