CASology #152: Nautical

Hello Everyone!

Ship-shape and ready to begin a new week at CASology?

Of course you are!

A paint-chip inspired this week’s card:


Don’t you love the alluring names given to paints? No ‘light blue’, ‘mid-blue’ and ‘dark blue’. Rather, we have ‘Caruso’, ‘Schooner’ and ‘French Riviera’. I am going to let you determine which name fits which paint chip colour. 🙂 I just love how they take all the guesswork out of tones that complement one another.

I love blue. I also love cheesy sentiments. My husband tells me that this might be at the gorgonzola end of the cheese spectrum. Technically, it’s not my quote, so technically, someone else has entered dangerously cheesy territory. I am just supporting the cause. Blue cheese? Blue seas? Doesn’t matter, so long as its CAS nautical!

  3. Awesome use of the paint chips. The colors you chose were gorgeous and the simplicity of the card was perfect!

  4. I LOVE a punny sentiment and the cheesier the better! This one totally cracked me up when I saw it in the gallery. 🙂

  5. You are cracking me up! And, your husband too! Love this card, and what a brilliant idea to use paint chips. I agree about the names of colors. That would be a fun job–thinking up the names.

  6. I’m with Jen, I always enjoy a good pun, and your cheesy sentiment is awesome in my book! I love all the blues in your sea, too — great way to use paint chips!
