Week 28: DRINK

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Two more months of winter.  Yes, some of us are already counting the days until spring!  With a warm drink in hand, we're watching the current season with wry amusement, yet acknowledging that it does have its perks:  comfort foods and drinks.  Who doesn't enjoy those?!

This week, we're going to think about the word DRINK and what it brings to mind!  Maybe it's a particular drink or maybe it's something you associate with a drink!  Whatever it is, we'd love to see your creative take on this week's cue word!


First, let's see what the design team and our guest designer, Heather, created for inspiration this week!

Guest Designer:  Heather
design defined:
Background stamps can be useful for so much more than backgrounds.
Don't be afraid to create your own shapes and images.




Judy
design defined:
Masking is a great way to add interest to a one-layer CAS card.



design defined:
Using negative space is a great way to keep your focal point from getting cluttered.


design defined:
Dimension is a great way to add interest to a clean and simple card.


design defined:
An otherwise colorless design is easily embellished with a touch of glitter and a little dimension.



Rosemary
design defined:
To keep a card with a large image CAS spotlight only a portion of the image.


Tracey
design defined:
Using neutrals plus only one colour keeps your CAS design cohesive.

design defined:
When your focal image is quite busy, lots of white space and simple matting keep it CAS!


Jen
design defined:
Look for alternate uses for your stamps - the thought cloud is actually part of a tree stamp.


Now go have fun and don't forget to link up your creation by Sunday at 4 p.m. (CST)!

  6. What a fabulous assortment of drinks in the entries and by you gals on the DT! Awesomeness!! And lots of different design layouts, too. I forget if you have set up a Pinboard for your challenges, at least the DT cards, so they are already pinned for us. I will go find out. Either way, thank you for the inspiration!!
