Cas-ing Robyn's card

This is Robyn's card that she entered in the CASolgy challenge for night. Isn't it beautiful? So crisp and shiny I love it and so I had to replicate it with what I have.

Wow she's a better photographer too! This does look as crisp and cool as hers in person.
Take two... Thanks for the inspiration Robyn!

Up next is yin and yang - positive and negative cuts.

Here's the negative cut with red stickles added to brighten it up.

These are the positive cuts all blinged out with stickles. I love playing with stickles, not as messy as regular glitter and just as fun. I better stock up befor the Christmas Card Making starts in earnest.
I did two of each and like them both. I am a Pisces - 2 fish going in opposite directions - so that's typical.

Thanks to lessons from Leo at SVG cuts on how to use the SCAL program and inkscape, I've been playing around with welding letters and things together. I cut two but one got ripped. It was fun playing around with Christmas in mind, and I even sparkled at the end of the day.

I was in a whirl wind of inspiration yesterday, producing a dozen cards. Working with the drying time for stickles, I glittered up one then started on the next. At 3 o'clock I realized I was still in my jammies:) Now that's a productive day.
I'll head on over to Robyn's blog and let her know.

  1. Hi Carole! Thank you so much for the honour of caseing my card!I just love the pretty jewelled snowflakes you used! I improved my photography thanks to a tutorial that was passed on to me on SCS. I will look it up and let you know where to find it. Thanks again and have a great week!

  2. Here is how to find the tutorial. It is by Amy Scheffer. Are you a member on Splitcoast Stampers? Go to forums. On the left hand side is a search button. Type in "photographing projects" and press search. Scroll down a bit and you will see Amy's tutorial. Lots of good tips there.

  3. Hi Carole,
