CCC #25 - NEW


Happy New Year!
Welcome to the first challenge of 2013 at CASology!

We have some exciting new changes this year at CSAology, we are welcoming three new members to our existing Design Team.

Joining us are:



Our first Cue Card of the year is:








After I made this first version of my card I added a little more, but after I did I felt the card had lost what I feel is CAS style.  Even though I only added one more layer, which is very acceptable in a CAS card, the added layer along with the patterned paper and the bling ends up a bit cluttered.  I really liked how my 'extended' version of the card turned out so I decided to share it in this post.





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.
All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  White
Patterned Paper: Sweet Blush Patterned Paper Pack
Stamps: Hanging Out, Heart-2-Heart #5
Ink:  Memento London Fog, Memento Angel Pink (Tsukineko)
Dies: Limitless layers Squares
other: foam tape, silver gem

Sorry I've missed so much! I was away for two weeks on vacation... This card is utterly adorable, and I love the addition of the doily behind the square panel.

Both cards are fabulous, Tracey! Love the grey paired with the pink and how your centre panel pops off the gingham!

sooo sweet...love the simple approach to these!

Kelly Griglione said...

Beautiful card, Tracey! Agree that the second card is not as CAS, but still very pretty. So glad you shared both versions. Love to see the "behind the scenes" stuff : ) I often struggle with liking more things on a card but end up leaving them off in the final version. A very happy New Year to you and your family, Tracey!!

Marybeth said...

Love them both ....I think the second one is still CAS with just a bit more. I love the second one. But you are the Queen of CAS so I trust you know best. Hope you feel a bit better.

Diane said...

Tracey, your card and your blog are amazing. I'm so excited to have just discovered CASology, and all the fabulous designers blogs through that connect. You have amazing work here and are now on my bookmarked places to visit frequently. Love your CAS designs and your CAS blog. Hmmmm....maybe a new look is in order on my blog soon. Happy New Year!

Jen said...

I think they're both adorable. And the second one with the scalloped square is a perfect girly addition to an already beautiful CAS card!

Nancy Guse said...

Such sweet cards, Tracey! Love the scalloped border--makes it extra sweet!

Darnell J Knauss said...

I'm so glad I follow you on Pinterest. I would be pinning every card anyway. This needs to be marked by you RIGHT NOW as one of your favorites for 2013! (I sure am bossy.) Both versions are precious beyond words and will be a favorite to CASE by card artists forever!!

Maureen Merritt said...

Both of these cards are great and equally CAS!! I love the gingham paper :)

Michelle said...

Oh so sweet! I truly love them both! The scalloped frame is so pretty!

Adorable new baby card. I love that sweet pink gingham. Ann

Jean said...

Super sweet baby girl cards ~ IMHO I still think version # 2 would qualify as CAS. The scalloped layer adds so much!
