CASology 46 - Furry!


Today's CASology Cue Card is Furry!



I'm more of an animal respecter than animal lover. I don't have a lot of furry stamps. And I just knew that I could not Google 'furry' for inspiration (can you imagine?! lol!)

Finally I came this little polar bear that came as part of a Michael's Christmas set (you know the "high quality" stamps that come with those "high quality" little ink pads and glitter glue as a kit and are finally worth the price once they're 85% off!).

He's a little small to be on his own, so I knew I wanted to repeat the image. Since he's white, I was able to fill the card without losing the airy CAS feel - just little pops of colour and glitter on his scarf for some interest and a simple Lizzie Anne Designs sentiment. (PS - did you know that polar bear's skins are black to absorb the little sunlight they get? And that their hairs are clear, not white? Strange but true!)

Now it's your turn. I can't wait to see where this one takes you - I'm picturing mink coats and unshaven legs! lol! And we've got a sponsor this week - Paper Smooches - see all the details on CASology!

Be sure to stop by the blogs of the other members of the design team to see their 'furry' cards!


and this week's Guest Designer: Lucy

Be sure to drop by tomorrow for a special day - there's a hint in the title of today's post!

This is adorable Ardyth, I did not know those facts about polar bears! Sounds like a fun challenge!

Geri said...

Seriously, black skin and clear fur? Whooda thunk it? Certainly not I!

You are the ONLY person I know that can stamp 12 images...yes 12...on a card and beautifully and expertly maintain a fabulous clean and simple design!

Truly another fabulous 'Ardyth' card!

What a sweetie he is, all 12 of him. And beautifully aligned. Great card, Ardyth.

I never knew that about polar bears. Wait till I tell my gs, Carter--he's all about the animals. Anyway, this is a great take on furry. He is a little cutie pie, and I love how you've repeated him. Those little pops of color are just right-perfect for a Christmas card. Love it. Bev

Sweet card, Ardyth! I do like polar bear images (and the Coke polar bears, too :P). I think I'll be CASEing this one! Not for the challenge, though. ;)

What an adorable card; I'll echo the others - only you can place 12 bears on a card and still wind up *cas* Impressive!! Scarves, bears - perfect card for Christmas - adding to my *must try* notebook!

ROFL with that Google search comment... :)

I learned something new today with the polar bear facts! Who'd have guessed?!

Love what you did with that one little bear! Of course, I am not one bit surprised you were able to come up with such a design...that's true Ardyth style, isn't it?! :)
