CASology 21 - Time


This week's CASology Cue Card is Time!



Well, it's just about time to say good-bye to 2012 and welcome 2013, so I decided to make a New Year's card.

I masked, stamped and embossed the Old Island Stamp Company sentiment and then lined up my clear number stamps on my acrylic block above the sentiment. I masked above the final 2 and below the 3, to make it look like a digital clock rolling forward.

To add some colour, I masked 1/4 inch of the top and bottom of the main panel and stamped multiple colours using the thinnest line from Papertrey's Faux Ribbon set.

Then, I used mirror card for the card base to give the whole card a celebratory feel!

Now it's your turn to show us what time means to you.

Don't forget to link up by noon, CST on Sunday, December 2 (can you believe it's almost December already - Time is passing!!)

Here are links to the blogs of the other Design Team members - go see what they came up with!

O.M.G. Totally one of my favorite "Ardyth" cards ... you are so stinkin' creative!! Relating an odometer to the years passing is SO brilliant. Plus the colors and silver just scream "I'm a New Year's card!" Pinning this one.

You captured a New Year's celebration perfectly with the mix of colors and the mirror card. Absolutely adore how you show the changing of the years.

So, so clever first of all. And then just plain wonderful to look at. Those little splashes of color. And the mirrored CS. That stuff can really pack a punch in small doses. Love this.

What can I say? Everyone else took the words right out of my mouth. So just read them over as if they came from me. lol

Imagine the consternation of a psychiatrist examining your brain and trying to stuff it into one of the well-known and time-honored niches of his profession.

Your awesome creativity makes me want to see your wardrobe and your kitchen and what you hang on your walls.....the design and organization must be amazing.

Ardyth ROCKS!

Awesome Ardyth ... the detail on the top and bottom is stunning, I thought it was ribbon at first, it's wonderful! Just a thought ... as so many want your brain, could you download it onto disks, that way we could all get a copy! Anita :)

Aileen said...
