CASology 167 - Silly!


This week's CASology Cue Card is Silly!



Making this card reminded me why I hang onto certain stamps, even though I don't use them often. These eyes are from an old, old Stampendous Cupcake set. At least I think they are - I can't find the set anywhere online - it may not be Stampendous, but it had a big cupcake and lots of different faces. For the shocked mouth, I used a small oval from Paper Smooches Shadows. The sentiment is from MFT Piece of Cake.

Originally I stamped it all on a flat white panel, but it seemed a bit boring - almost too much white space! So I decided to cut out a circle to make the face look more like a face. I inlaid the circle back into the panel - you can see where the cut is, but there are no additional layers, helping to keep this card very CAS.

I know that I've seen a similar idea before but I can't remember where or when - please let me know if you know so I can give credit.

Now it's your turn to be silly! I predict a hilarious gallery this week and I just can't wait!
