CASology Week #276: Cheer




Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is CHEER.

I made a card using a bunch of wine bottle die cuts to create some texture and then a simple layered and shimmery "Cheers" sentiment die cut.  I will stamp something on the inside when I get ready to use this card--I'm thinking it will either be a birthday card or perhaps a card to celebrate a special achievement.




Now it's your turn.  How does CHEER inspire you?  I hope you play along this week.  Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

I am also entering this card at AAA Cards #103.



Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

My Crafty Weekend



Sit down and grab a cup of tea.  I had a super crafty weekend, and now I am going to get everything posted before I head out for the afternoon.

First up is my CASE of this gorgeous card by Ardyth for MUSE #242.

Ardyth's Inspiration Card

I normally try to replicate the card when I CASE, but this time I tried to do something different.  I was inspired by the white and grey color scheme and the Christmas theme, and tried to be inspired in a different approach.


Next up is another jumping reindeer card for Just Add Ink #386: Just Add "R" challenge.  I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #268: Holiday.  You can see my first jumping reindeer card here.





My next card is for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Furry Friends and The Male Room #73: Paper Piecing.  I colored the cat and dogs with Copics and paper pieced their hat, scarf and antlers.





My next card is inspired by the challenge at Inkspirational #148: Christmas card using only neutral colors.




Less is More #355 challenges us to CASE a really cute card.  Here is the card to CASE.

Inspirational Card

I was inspired by the design of the card and the cute and colored holiday focal point.



My next card is inspired by the challenge at Cupcake Inspirations #432 and also by this card by Michelle during the PTI release.




And, a second, slightly different version.





This card was inspired by the colors at this week's Color Throwdown #469.




Ok, last one.  Thanks for sticking around.


I am entering this birthday card at Seize the Birthday where the optional topping is Circles, Simon Says Monday challenge: It's a Stitch Up, and AAA Cards #103: Celebrate.

My Crafty Week



I made a card for PTI Create Along with Us, and it was inspired by this card by Lizzie.  Lizzie's card had reindeer leaping over the tops of houses, and I have santa's reindeer flying over the mountains.  I cannot wait until my reindeer stamps arrive so I can make them fly over things.


I am also entering this card at Just Add Ink #386:  Just Add "R" (reindeer).




My next card is inspired by the sketch at CAS Colours And Sketches #249, and uses those same mountains as the card above, only I did not use the matching dies.






Another sketch inspired my next card and it is from Freshly Made Sketches #313.   I am also linking this card up at Addicted to Stamps and More #268: Holiday.









Last up is a card with a wreath and a bow, and it is inspired by the challenge at Addicted to CAS #124: Bows and the wreath in the photo inspiration at Fusion.





That's it for me today.  I am hoping to crank out some more holiday cards this weekend, so I'll be back on Sunday.  In the meantime, I hope to get out into blogland and pay some visits.

Time Out #96...Reminder...Happy Birthday




There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this time is a 

CASE with your own Twist challenge


We have this beautiful card to case from Michele of I Card Everyone.



I was inspired by the diagonal of the pattern and sentiment and by the die cut word that was half white.  My twist is that I used patterned paper, rather than stencil and ink, and I made a birthday card rather than a thank you card.



Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Bobby, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge.  Michele also CASEd herself, and has a stunner to inspire you on her blog.  Happy Little Stampers is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.

Peace on Earth



I have one Christmas card to share today, that I am entering in a number of challenges.  My initial inspiration is from the Paper Players #370: White on White.

I used the PTI Winter Floral cover plate--I just love all that detail, and stamped my sentiment in Delicata Silvery Shimmer.



I am also entering this card at Happy Little Stampers CAS November Challenge: Christmas,  Happy Little Stampers November Anything Goes with Dies Challenge,  Happy Little Stampers November Christmas Challenge, and Addicted to Stamps and More #268: Holiday.
