CASology Guest Designer!



Hello friends!  I'm super excited to be the Guest Designer over at CASology this week.  When I won a couple of weeks ago, Melissa sent me a note asking me if I'd like to guest design...well hello...YES...was my quick reply!

This week's cue word is snowflake.  I am late to the glitter paper trend, but I had just ordered some from Stampin' Up and wanted to give it a go with my snowflake dies.  This is one of those cards that translated perfectly from my head to my card.  Doesn't happen often, but I love it when it does!  I added a button and a touch of thread to make the card a bit more whimsical feeling.  The ink color for the PaperSmooches sentiment is Smoky Slate. It looks better in real life than in my picture, but I think it is my new favorite gray ink pad!


Hope you are all finishing up your Christmas cards.  I'd love to see you play along at CASology!

Congrats on the guest gig, Lynn! This pretty-in-pink number is so sweet! Lovin' the glitter paper - way less messy than actual glitter too which is a winner in my book! :)

Congratulations on GD, Lynn! Your card is so pretty! I love the loopy thread and have been seeing it everywhere on cards but haven't added any to mine just yet! Thank you for the inspiration.

This is so soft and lovely. Did you used just regular sewing thread? I can't believe it stays in position like that if you did.

Karen Haman said...

Gorgeous! Love the color combo and the loops of thread behind - that really frames the snowflake.

Lindsey said...

Congrats to you! And I love when that happens with cards...and this one is such a beauty!
