CASology Week 91- Note

Good Afternoon,

It's time for a new Cue Card at CASology this week, we had so many great and varied interpretations of 'Wet' last week and hopefully we will see the same again this time round.  This week the Cue Card is 'Note', when I first thought of this I was thinking of a notepad, however as usual ended up in a totally different direction and went with Musical Notes instead.

Supplies Used:
Unity Stamp Company - Musical Notes Stamp
Stampin Up - Express Yourself 
Ink Dusters

So how does my card fit into the 'helpful hints' for a CAS card

  • One main image - The masked off portion of the card
  •  Lots of open space (uncluttered) - Two thirds of my card is 'white space'
  • Limited layers & embellishments - Only one additional layer to the base card, in a contrasting colour to add additional interest.
  • Quick & easy to recreate - Mask off section for stamping, stamp image, do some ink dusting and add the sentiment.

Now it's over to you guys, I can't wait to see what Clean and Simple ideas you all come up with this week, but before you get started have a quick visit round the rest of the Design Team for further inspiration.

Twine from my stash
Ink Duster

Uniko Studio April Release & Reveal

Good Morning,

It's release day at Uniko Studio, so we can finally share with your the April release in full and I am sure you won't be disappointed.

First up is Background Builders - Vines, I have fallen head over heals in love with this set, so many great stamps in it. You will be seeing a lot more of this set from me in the coming weeks.

The second set is Flower Power #4, a great addition to the flower power series and I love those cute stitched leaves.

Both sets are available in store now, so quick go get them before they go!

I have a couple of cards to share with you using these sets, my first card is using the Background Builders Vines set (have I said how much I love this set?)

Next is my card using the Flower Power #4 set and I have used one of the tiny flowers from the Background Builders set as a small highlight and the sentiment is from the Uniko stamp set 'Time'.

Usually at this point we would have a Design Team Blog Hop, but due to some hiccups this is being delayed until the 26th April and all the Design Team will have samples from these sets, so hopefully you will manage to join in then.  And yes Beverley will kindly have some more prizes up for grabs.

Thanks for visiting
