I’ve a card to share with you this evening and then if you feel like scrolling down a bit further, there’s a touch of CASology Favorites to play with. Here’s the card and also a picture of the HA stamps I used …
The card’s for Unscripted Sketches, which I didn’t get to last week so it’s good to be back, and for Ellen Hutson LLC Hero Arts Clear Take ‘n Make, that I only recently discovered via my good friend Geri at Manitoba Stamper (thanks Geri!). I stuck pretty much to the sketch and used HA stamps for the image and sentiment.
I stamped the bird five times on white, coloured all but one in yellow, leaving the one to stand out as different by using blue and a couple of gems. Then came the sentiment (which was masked as I only used part of it) cut into a banner, and layers came next to frame the image. It was all mounted on a swiss dots embossed panel, and the final touch was the three white gems. It’s not as CAS as my usual offerings but I’m content … sometimes it’s good to do something different, it gets those little grey cells going! Anyway, I like the message! Recipe is at the bottom.
I spent a very happy few hours yesterday and today meandering through the last six months entries at CASology … there’s a favorites week rather than a cue card at the moment, with easy peasy access to all 24 weeks since the challenge first started in July. It’s been extra fab for me ’cause not only did I get chance to have a review of everything since I started playing in October (a few weeks into blogworld), but I had the joy of checking out all the stuff I hadn’t seen before.
So WOW, WOW, WOW … to say that I am awe struck by the incredible creativity and talent that is out there is a smidgy bit of an understatement … I could have ‘favorited’ so many … some already winners or honorable mentions, some not. In the end I finally chose and linked one that was perfectly CAS, beautifully executed and made me laugh out loud as soon as I saw it … it’s Shirley’s Hello Birdie from Week 4, and it’s here, take a look if you feel like a chuckle!
There were a whole load of others too, so I thought I’d put the links on here for you to have a look at (if you want to be awe struck and inspired too!). In no particular order …
So to Melissa (Creator/Co-ordinator), Ardyth, Jen, Rosemary and Tracey (the Design Team)… an enormous THANK YOU for such a great challenge and consistently inspiring examples … I so appreciate what you all do 🙂 Also, to my fellow CASologists thank you so much for sharing your ideas and skill … I am inspired by you all 🙂
Looking forward to tomorrow’s announcement about which of you talented people have joined the Design Team. I’m off to make a card … if I don’t use up some of that download of inspiration, I’ll explode! Thanks so much for coming by, and especially so if you’ve had chance to make a comment below, it’s a delight to read your feedback … Anita 🙂
