CASology Challenge Journey Card by Bibi

If you are looking for DT Majo's post today, please click here.


Hello everyone! Bibi here today with two CAS cards I've made for the current CASology challenge, where the theme this week is JOURNEY:


My tip: When using only a sentiment stamp on your card, you can add a bit of interest 
by cutting out one of the words, frame it and adhere it with foam tape off to the side.



For the third time this summer, Rubber Dance is sponsoring CASology - a challenge blog that is all about Clean And Simple (CAS). 





Each week, we'll study clean and simple design using a cue word as our inspiration.  The design team will share their CAS creations and a little bit about their designs to inspire you to create a clean and simple card of your own!



  




Weekly challenges begin Tuesday mornings.
  1. Interpret the word on the weekly cue card however you'd like!  This is about creativity!
  2. Link up your *new* creation (card, tag, scrapbook layout, etc.) here on the CASology blog.
  3. Please add a link back to us on your blog post when submitting your creation.
  4. Please feel free to combine this challenge with other challenges.
  5. Be creative.
  6. Keep it simple.
  7. Have fun!
All submissions are due Mondays at noon, CST/CDT.
(That's 19:00 in Scandinavia and continental Europe, 18:00 in the UK)


I said I had made TWO cards for the journey theme, and here is the second one:



I thought long and hard about what 'journey' can mean, and I came up with a few ideas that never made it to the paper (one with a woman walking and the text saying "She..... is leaving", another was a dancer balancing on the top of the Eiffel tower). Since I'm hooked on the Textured Flowers stamps right now, I ended up making this card about a bee's journey back and forth to its hive. The text says BRB!, which you probably know means "Be Right Back", but in this case, I think it stands for Bee Right Back!

What do YOU think 'journey' can mean? Share with us in the comments below, or show us by making a CAS card about it and join CASology's challenge! :-) 


Thank you for stamping by today!

Love,
Bibi



All stamps from Rubber Dance:
Journey from Think Again
Flower from Textured Flowers
Bee from Beautiful Bugs
Stencil from The Crafters Workshop:
Chicken Wire (I thought it looked like a bee honeycomb)

  1. Bibi, WOW! I love the way you think! Two amazing cards (and I love the other ideas you mentioned that didn't make it to paper)! I love how you framed the word "journey" so it would add interest, and the textured flowers are so cool. (Love the BRB!) Thanks for sponsoring the CASology challenge this week!
