If I haven't told you before I work with the most amazing group of girls at CASology! All of them so incredibly talented and fun to play with. This week we had a bit of a chuckle. We had a 'great minds think alike' moment when we realized that a few of us grabbed the same stamp set for this week's inspiration! The fun part of it is that we each took a different approach with it. We hope you find something to inspire you to come and join us this week at CASology. Here is my card:
When I create a CAS card, I will usually have a mat of some kind. It could be white on white or it could include multiple colours. You can be sure my mat with work with the rest of my card. This week I prepared my mat and then decided that the card looked a bit plain. So I broke out my Fabulous Frames dies and chose the Polaroid frame to house my focal image. I die cut the space for my sentiment at the bottom of the frame so it didn't get too bulky.
Most of my cards tend to be very CAS so I like to pick versatile stamp sets. If I am spending my money on stamp sets I want to be able to use it again and again without my cards always looking the same. The fun thing with On My Couch by Papertrey Ink is that it features both a chair and a couch that can be stamped as an outline, a pattern or a solid. Outline stamps are excellent to stamp on and cut from patterned paper, or coloured in with Copics and even left alone for 3 very different looks. Pattern stamps can be stamped in any colour you choose and the same with solid stamps. I try to think of my options before making a purchase.
