CASology Week 104

I'm back for another post alongside the talented team from CASology! I am lucky enough that this month has five Tuesdays, so this marks my half-way point as a guest designer for July.


While there can be other interpretations, this is not a Snarky Sisters post ;), so I went with what I think is the most obvious meaning of the cue word:



I just got the new Paper Smooches Feline Friends stamp set, so it was an obvious choice to ink up. I love when solid stamps ink so nicely the first time! To really give the silhouette some dimension, I heat embossed with liquid glass embossing powder -- it adds extra thickness and shine. The sentiment is embossed with regular clear embossing powder. I wasn't entirely sure how it would go, stamping over the washi tape, but everything worked very nicely. The main panel is popped up on the grey card base for a clean, simple, classy card. 
For more inspiration, be sure to check out the CASology challenge post. And if you wish to go with another meaning of the cue word, I for one can't wait to see it! 

Supplies: white & Stampin' Up basic grey cardstock, Paper Smooches feline Friends & Memory Box Happy Birthday stamps, Memento Luxe tuxedo black ink, clear and liquid glass embossing powders, Little B thin silver strip washi tape, dimensionals

Pin It Now!

Solid stamps that ink perfectly the first time? AWESOME! I love the tail on this kitty, and I am very curious about this Liquid Glass EP - who makes that?? Love the font on the sentiment too. CAS perfection, Lindsey!

Nice and simple. Any kitty lover would love to receive this birthday card. How'd you cut the strip of washi so fine?!!

Heather G said...

Yes, I'm getting caught up on viewing your blog. Love the cat cards. Wish I had those stamps when I had my cat. Like the silhouette. And great inking. My solid stamps never come out right.

That stamp set is pretty high on my wish list and that cat looks fabulous - gotta check out that liquid glass stuff. :) Glad you have 2 more weeks with us!
