CCC #64



Time for a new CASology Cue Card !
This week we have another fitting challenge:




When I think of this time of the year I think of a warm colour palette. So I used some Stampin' Up More Mustard cardstock, Paperterey Vintage Cream carstock and Stampin`Up Soft Suede ink for that warm feel. I offset the image and the sentiment, overlapping slightly to give interest to my card rather than just stacking one on top of the other.  Smaller frames and larger borders are another way to draw the eye to your focal point as well as anchor your image.  Both my image and sentiment are older Hero Arts woodblock stamps. The sentiment was crooked on the block right from the day I got it. I gave it a quick 10 second zap in the microwave, then VERY carefully using tweezers I removed the rubber stamp from the block, straightened it out and then using an oven mitt I pressed down. Being very careful not burn myself because both the stamp and the block were very HOT! Once it cooled down it stayed in place.




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.
