This week's CASology Cue Card is Winter!
This card looks so calm and peaceful, doesn't it? But don't let it fool you! After nearly two weeks of very little crafting time, I had absolutely no mojo and no idea what to make for a winter card. Once Christmas is done, I think winter should be too! I went through all my stamps over and over, looking for inspiration. Trawled through Pinterest, hundreds of blogs. Made 3 or 4 different card front panels, feeling clumsy with my cutter and my Copics (lack of practice!). Finally as the light was fading, I came back to this stamp. It's an old Stampin' Up Hostess set called Gently Falling. I threw caution to the wind and stamped it in the middle of the panel without even using a stamp positioner. The sky is inked with my blue Kaleidecolor ink pad and the sentiment is black. And in the end, I think it really does convey the silent, peaceful feeling of heavy snow falling on a dark winter night. Fortunately, it doesn't convey the hurricane that went through my craft room getting to this!
Now it's your turn to play along and show us what winter means to you. Don't forget to link your card by Sunday at 4:00 CST. Before you go, here are links to the blogs of the other members of the design team - go take a look and see where the cue card took them:
