CASology 29 - Game


This week's CASology Cue Card is Game!




 Fresh Squeezed Stamps

This week, we have a wonderful sponsor who is offering a prize to this week's winner and one random participant!

One of the tricky things about CAS cards is the need for precision. When there's not much on the card front,  accurate placement and clean, crisp stamping are a must! Placement can be tricky - even with clear stamps. One of my favourite tricks is to draw lines on the card front in pencil, to help me place the stamps in the correct spots. Once the ink is dry (this is important, people, don't ask me how I know!) you can erase the pencil lines. For wooden stamps, a stamp positioner (or stampamajig) can help!

There are a ton of 'Scrabble'-like stamps and embellishments out there right now - this tile stamp is from Gina K's Lots of Letters (not sure why she put lower case letters in that set, even though I do like the font), so the capital letters I used are from The Stamps of Life Basics4ABCs. The heart is cut from Stampin' Up's Red Glimmer paper using a Sweet'n'Sassy die.

Now it's your turn to play the game! Link your creation to CASology by Sunday at 4:00 pm (CST).  But first, don't forget to drop by the blogs of the other design team members to see what they've done with this Cue Card!

Great Scrabble letters Ardyth I bet these are so versa'tile' (groan) You are correct, Misog's is the misery's and chazzing is slang for charity shopping.
Thanks for your kind comment.

Perfect T - A - K - E on the cue card and I think your word is worth more points too!

Um, wow, that is so impressive ... they are so perfectly lined up! Here's some constructive criticism ... I think you should mess it up a tiny bit. Just one. That way people don't think it's all one stamp!! : )
