CCC-CASology!


Three cards for you tonight - one for the last few minutes of this week's Our Creative Corner challenge, to use this colour combo with a twist:

To be honest, I wasn't planning to make a card for this challenge, but while I had my Konnichiwa pad out making my lantern card I realized I had all the colours right at hand. Serendipity!
Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Konnichiwa;"
standard small circle Nesties;
embossing folders from Cuttlebug;
sentiment from Hero Arts; Palette Noir ink;
miscellaneous gems
I used 3 different embossing folders, and the pink circle is popped up with a layer of foam. I doodled around the edges, but I'm not sure I like it after all. Then again, it's very hot and humid, and that just generally makes me cranky.

My next two cards are for CAS-ology, which has this cue card:

The CAS-ology linky is open until Sunday at noon, so you still have some time to play along. Both of my cards use Paper Smooches birds - once I was working on the first card, I got the idea for the second.
Supplies: bird stamp from Paper Smooches;
sentiment stamp from Daisy Bucket;
Fiesta Kaleidacolor inkpad; Versamark & clear EP;
googly eyes; various gems;
standard circle Nesties
 Well, first, rainbow. Love that. And I've coloured & cut three birds, and layered them a little askew to make it look like the bird is flapping with excitement. And it worked :)
Supplies: kraft patterned paper from MME "Indie Chic;"
floral, text, and flower clip from Simple Stories "Summer Fresh;"
stamps & twine from Paper Smooches;
Palette Noir & Old Paper and Barn Door distress ink;
corner rounder for scallops
Although there are a number of layers on the second card, I think it still qualifies as CAS because there's still a lot of 'white' space, and it would be a simple design to reproduce. Besides using the corner rounder to make the scalloped text layer, I snipped about 1/8 inch up between each scallop and then gently bent each scallop upwards for some more dimension. 

OK, off to flop in front of the fan & hope for rain...
xoxo,
Jessi

I love the doodled frame around the first card! It's my favourite part of it! That PS bird flapping it's colours everywhere is fabulous and I can't believe you cut that scalloped edge with a corner rounder! It looks perfect! Thanks for playing along at CaSology this week!

Love the big, bold circles and all of the fabulous textures on your OCC card. Your "happy, happy" card just brought a huge smile to my face, as well. Those colors are pure cheerfulness together. Thanks for joining us this week at Our Creative Corner! :)
