CASology 182: Adore

Hello Everyone!

CASology has a cue this week that you are just going to love:

I used the colour of my cardstock to convey the mood of the cue, and kept my stamping on the ‘extreme of clean’.


As you know, ‘white space’ doesn’t have to be white to be CAS, but it does need to be ‘clean’ ;-). I simply heat embossed this gorgeous bird onto my cardstock, and added a speech bubble embellishment, after I had stamped the heart and letter ‘u’ onto it. This stamp set features this bird in two sizes, so the heart you see in the speech bubble is actually the masked-off tail of the bigger bird. If you look at the tail on this small bird, you might get a sense of the dimension of the larger bird. Hope that makes sense?!?
