CASology Week 271: SORRY

Welcome to Week 271 at CASology!




Sadly, my supply of condolence cards was depleted this summer so I took advantage of this week's cue word to start replenishing the pile.

Using CAS(E) This Sketch #243 for inspiration, the lower third of my card front was taped off and inked with Crushed Olive Distress Ink. The inked part was then masked and a line of Broken China Distress Ink added above,




The Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday sentiment is stamped on the inked panel and a Memory Box Alder Tree die added to the right side.




The Design Team has a terrific cards this week!

CASology Week 270: ODD

Welcome to Week 270 at CASology!




The gallery should be fun with ODD as our cue word this week. Odd numbers, especially three of something, have been used forever to create a design pleasing to the eye. I chose to heat emboss three Mama Elephant Freestyle Floral images along with an Altenew sentiment on a watercolor paper panel.  




Color is added to the images with an aqua pen and Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door Distress inks before the panel is mounted on the terracotta card base.




The Design Team has great cards for you to check out!

CASology Week 269: GRID

Welcome to Week 269 at CASology!


 


As soon as I saw this week's cue word, I dug deep into my stash of patterned papers to find this red and cream grid paper. To add interest, an MFT Stitched Arch die adds a curved line to the straight edges.


  


The MFT thanks die is cut from a matching red paper, mounted on a black flag banner and popped up on the grid paper panel. Another banner grounds the panel on the card base, with a trio of enamal dots for added interest and another shape.



The Design Team has beautiful Grid cards to share with you this week!

I'm also linking this card to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Blog where Anything Goes this week and to Freshly Made Sketches where I thought I'd missed the deadline for FMS307, but it was extended a week.
