Geometric CAS Style!

Hey & Happy Monday!

I do hope your week has got off to a good start :) There is a chill in the air here in the NE of the UK but the sun is out, so that helps. 

The beans are super tired today, I think they are still adjusting to the change in the clocks with them going back an hour at the weekend. Which means I had a little extra creative time in the studio today - YAY! 

Today I have shared a card HERE using this weeks Stamp Of The Week which has some geometric elements and really wanted to create a card using the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below with some more geometric elements suitable for the current Uniko Challenge HERE.




This is what I came up with...




I started out by die cutting the Mama Elephant 'hello' from the white CS at an angle. I then used temporary adhesive to adhere it to my work space with the 'hello' straight. This made it easier for me to stamped the lines with squares straight, following the sketch. 




After adhering it to my SU! Smokey Slate card base using foam adhesive I added a few square rhinestones to finish the card off. I loved the current ColourQ challenge colours seen HERE and below, so decided to use them again for my card.




I think that cue words such as geometrics can be daunting, but when you use them as accents to a focal image & think outside of the box they are really quite fun! I have used them to accent the 'hello' die cut with the simple stamping and with the rhinestones. An super CAS card in under 10 minutes! 

Ok, that's all from me today, mummy duties are required! I'll be back again this week with more to share, until then, thank you for stopping by today & hope to see you joining in on the Uniko Challenge :)
