CCC #19 - THANKS



Can you believe that CASology is already having their 19th challenge?   We hope you are still having a great time.  This week's Cue Word is:


We are getting into the season where we have a lot to be thankful for and this week is your chance to say thanks anyway you would like.  For my card this week I used Papertrey Ink's Ocean Tides and Soft Stone, truly a match made in heaven.  For my card I chose a large sentiment which I stamped in the middle of my Soft Stone focal panel.  After it was stamped I embossed the panel with the Harlequin Cover Plate die, thank you Cristina Kowalczyk for the tips on doing this without cutting the cardstock.  Big sentiment + embossing = CAS.


Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.

Don`t forget to visit the blogs of the other members of the Design Team:
Tracey McNeely (that`s me)

and this week's Guest Designer Shelly (winner of CCC #17 - SUGAR)

I can't wait to see what THANKS means to you!

All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  Ocean Tides, Soft Stone
Stamps: A Big Thank You
Ink:  True Black, New Leaf
Dies: Harlequin Cover Plate

Beautiful--and great idea to use that harlequin plate as an embossing plate--like getting a free IP. That is one of my favorite thank you stamps.
