CCC #125

IMG_7078


Happy Tuesday and time for this week's new CASology Cue Card!

Getting down the wire with Christmas, I think the next couple of weeks are going to fly!  I am heading up to Sudbury on Saturday to attend the Architecture Open House. I love having the opportunity to see what Ben has been up to at school the past 4 months. No ice huts this year but the class split into two and each group built a canoe, so I will be armed with my camera.  After a couple of very stressful weeks of projects and deadlines Ben is done his exams and will be coming home with me on Saturday.  

This week's cue word is...



I have been using a lot of silver and gold this year--embossing powder, glitter, Delicata ink, Stickles and sequins. For my card this week I embossed my images with silver embossing powder on Soft Stone cardstock, I love the effect.

Love the look of the solid and outline - it gives better definition to both pieces without having to mask! Clever!

Simple and gorgeous! That silver embossing is perfect on the Soft Stone card stock!

Love the tone on tone embossing and the solid and line stamps together. So very pretty. Have fun on your trip to see Ben.

Your card is beautiful!! That silver on the soft stone is amazing. THANK YOU SO MUCH for picking my little snowman card as the winner last week!! I can't believe it! I almost didn't enter it, since the card itself had nothing to do with OLD, but I'm so glad I did. You made my day! Thanks again!

Christmas or anniversary, this is the perfect card, Tracey. I didn't know that canoe making was part of architecture. Can't wait to see pictures.

There is nothing more elegant and CAS than a silver embossed card and this is perfection, Tracey!! Have a wonderful weekend! I would think building a canoe would be a great teaching tool. I'm so happy for you that Ben will be coming back home with you! Happy Holiday Hugs! Darnell
