Hello everyone: I've been off the grid for a few days due to the fact that we had a dear friend from Mexico visiting our home, what better reason to put card making on the shelve for a spell.
But I'm back once again sharing a card with you that I'm linking to the CASology
challenge with the Cue Word "PIE" for this week, I hope you guys give this fun challenge a try, here is my card.
This card was made with a retired Flourishes set called "Fresh Baked" and, as you can see, that pie looks really yummy. I stamped it onto a panel of Canson water color paper and colored it with my SU markers in Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and a little bit of River Rock for the recipe, I wanted it to look a bit aged.
I die cut this image with a Flourishes die that has a companion stamp set called "Berry Sweet Frames" that I bought from one of the DT ladies, her name is Christine Okken
, as a matter of fact, I've bought several Flourishes sets from her, I hope you guys go to her blog to check out her "For Sale" place, there are still plenty of Flourishes sets available plus stamp sets from other places at really good prices.
Here is a close up of this Cherry Pie for you.
I put a little Crystal Effects on the pie to resemble the fruit oozing out when you take it out of the oven, I can smell it, oh sooooo goooood!!. I hope you can see the shine.
I set this image onto a Stampin Up! Cajun Craze card base .
Again, I tried to follow the CASology guide lines by having my focal point on the bottom 1/3 of the card base but, this image is a bit big and so is the die. I also added a narrow strip of yellow Gingham paper that, to me, matches the color of the pie dough and gave me some space to stamp my sentiment, which is from this same set.
I'm having so much fun making CAS cards and posting them on my blog, sometimes I achieve the style, sometimes I kind of go a bit, just a bit over the line but, in the end, it's all about having fun and, believe me, I just love this little blog of mine and participating in all kinds of challenges.
Here is the banner for this fun CASology challenge.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate your comments more than I can express here, I read them all and they give me such joy. Most times, I personally reply to them, other times, I just write a small note in the comment section, thanking all of you for your sweetness.
Until next time, Happy Stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
