Guest Designer – CASology #232, Darnell’s NBUS #8, Happy Little Stampers Dies – January

Hello … bonjour!  I’m thrilled to be guest designing with the CASology team this week … thanks so much for the invitation, Melissa … and thanks to the DT too for having me!  The Cue Card is ‘Cut’ … here’s where I went with it …

guest-designer-casology-232casology-guest-designer-badgecasology-week-232-cutYou can see where my ‘Cut’ is can’t you!  I stamped the WPlus9 blooms around the sweet spot (where the thirds lines intersect) on a white card panel, popped up the NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff in Darnellese) and Wink of Stella’d die cut sentiment onto craft foam next to it, added some dots of Glossy Accents to the flower centres and sprinkled on a little bling.  Voilà!

I do hope you’ll let your imagination wander through all things ‘Cut’ … and that you’ll join in the fun at CASology this week.  If you haven’t been for a visit already, do go over there and check out what fabulous inspiration the Design Team has prepared for you to get your creative juices flowing!  Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

My ‘Cut’ card is also heading to …

Darnell’s NBUS Challenge – Anything Goes … NBUS die cut sentiment … sorry my friend, no kraft paper and no coloured pencils in my possession!

Happy Little Stampers Dies – Anything Goes

Thanks once again to the CASology Team for having me over to play cards … and thanks to you too for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    Félicitations Anita pour ce GD spot ! Et comme toujours ta carte est superbe, simple et CAS à souhait ! Ton NBUS die est superbe, j’adore la jolie calligraphie et ces petites fleurs de WPlus9 sont un plaisir pour les yeux ! Encore félicitations et merci pour cette magnifique inspiration !

    Beautiful. Fresh, happy, and perfectly CAS. Ever since the LH, I’ve been thinking about this stamp set; it’s so pretty in its simplicity and pairs so well with your die ‘cuts’. Love the AE die, too. Hope you’re keeping warm and taking some time for yourself, dear friend. I think of you everyday, and miss you terribly…wanna move in with me??!!! : ) xoxo

    Hi Anita, I love your fresh colours and sweet sentiment. The textured card die cut and touches of bling are perfect touches too. Congrats on your GD spot!

    Fabulous card, Anita – love the added interest with the black bling that matches the flower centres. I was just looking at this set in my craft room over the weekend and your lovely card reminds me of just how pretty this set is. TFS

    Congrats again on your well-deserved win, and now on your Guest DT spot, Anita! I love your choice of flowers and die cut sentiment, and your details are just beautiful! Gorgeous color palette, too…especially on this dreary cold winter day 🙂

    Hoping that WordPress and I will get along today (apparently, we’ve not been…missing comments again. I’m thinking the issue may be related to where I”m posting …breaks from work *grin*). Such a pretty card with the trio of lovely blooms and delightful sentiment! Congratulations on your GD role; you’ve certainly ‘cut’ a charming card to dazzle and delight!

    GORGEOUS…and so clever! I’m seeing a whole lot of ‘cuts’ happening on this stunning creation: the diecut sentiment, the slash ‘cuts’ border, the cut from the original big piece of paper…but most obvious to me is that this card truly is “a cut above the best” …

    Actually did a google search and there are a kazillion “cut above” statements!!!

    Beautiful! Love the white sentiment over the black base — it really sets it off nicely. And those flowers are just scrumptious!
