CASology #53 - Cool, Paper Players #154 and just for fun!

Happy Tuesday...hope you are having a fabulous week! I have a bunch of cards to share today. My first card is actually a two card sets.  I got the idea from Joyce when she told me one of her daughters needed card sets to sell at camp for a fund raiser, so I thought why not make a couple of card sets to have on hand for gifts.  I got the idea from Lesley from Always Playing with Paper and since I already had the patterned paper and sheet of card stock stickers, why not!  I made 8 cards for 2 gift packs, they were quick and easy to make, but it did leave a bit of a mess on my desk. 

My next cards are for challenges, the first being this week's CASology #53 and the cue card is "Cool", so perfect for summer.  I had a bit of help on my card, Lucy stepped in to help me make a few Popsicles, orange, lime and lemon and a bit of glitter to dress them up.  

My last card is for this week's Paper Players, I don't believe I have played with them before and since I had so many dies and supplies on my desk I decided to play along.  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by to peek at my cards.....have a wonderful week!

  1. Those thank you cards are so much fun and such a great gift idea! I love the layered dies and embossing on your Merci card. As for your CASology card - I love the sentiment and the touch of glitter on the popsicles is awesome! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  2. Those card sets are adorable...
    love the fun colors and fruits!
    And popsicles...
    how utterly creative and well...
    COOL! :)
    Everything is fabulous...
    love them all! ;)

  3. Hi Kim, thanks for all your lovely comments! I love your thank you note set - so FUN! Sorry for my sparse comments on your blog - I have been crazy busy, but hopefully by next week things will be better....

  4. I love your fruit cards for the gift set. So summery and fun. And your popsicle card is just adorable.

  5. Wow--you were a creating machine. I adore those popsicle cards. And, the bit of glitter is genius. Absolute genius. I could have used a popsicle here this afternoon. Love your card sets, too. I never think to use stickers, but yours are so cute. I'll bet that after SAF, we will be making scratch and sniff fruit, and how cool will that be. Your last card is just darling, and I see my little die has come in handy for you today. You must be exhausted from making all those cards.

  6. What a great set of cards...I love your gift sets...hmmm, might have to think about CASing yours...they are fabulous. And Kim, thank you for all your sweet comments on my Cute and Cuddly cards...that is the only set I have from Clearly Besotted, but I sure do like them!

  7. I love the card sets and those popsicles look very yummy!

  8. Love your card sets. They are so cute. Love all your bright colors and patterns. And thanks for all of your comments on my blog. You always say the right things to make me feel good.

  9. You have been very busy! Glad I keep running into you!

    The cool clean popsicles paired with the distress sentiment, awesome contrast! Touch of the glitter is perfectly yummy!

    Thanks for joining in the FUN at CASology this week!

  10. Love your frosty frozen treats! I could use one (and it's not even 9am yet! It's going to be another hot one!) Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  11. The popsicles look so real with the added glitter strips. Love that effect. The ensemble and packaging make for one fabulous gift set. Love the last card, too! You worked the colors beautifully!

  12. You are on a roll! Those note cards are amazing; fun and colorful, and a wonderful gift. Popsicles with glitter...clever girl! They look yummy. And your last card, well, that one is gorgeous--polka dots and enamel dots--my favs. It's really a fun card. All are wonderful. Bev

  13. Absolutely dying about this amazing amazing post and your cards Kim! Love your gift sets! Inspiring me my friend. Your popsicles are too cute (you use Lucy more than I use Betty--good job), love your MB die. Thank you so sharing with us this week at CASology!

  14. Wow girl...you are on one creative roll!

    The gift sets are spectacular! The colors, the design, the absolute cuteness....you are going to be asked for several more sets GUARANTEED!!!

    And how cool is your CAS-ology card.....Way Cool (isn't that what the teenagers say?) Really makes me want to jump in the van and head to the the corner store to buy a yummy creamsicle! Awesome colors!

    Your Merci card is to pretty and so elegant. This is such a non-traditional color combo and it ROCKS! The few enamel grads are the perfect finishing touch!

    AWESOME SAUCE!!! .... isn't that another cool new saying? If not, then I'm way out of touch!!!

  15. Great job on the PP color card, Kim, and on the delish "cool" pops that Lucy helped you make! (She is such a good helper!) But what really blew my socks off were your sets! Having received a prior set you made, I know first-hand how incredible they are!! That's a lot of work; thank you for sharing!!

  16. Your gift sets are so stunning, Kim ... beautifully presented ... sho wouldn't love to have these? Yummy icy treats ... clever glittering to mimic the frostiness! Die cut deliciousness on your polka dot delight ... just lovely! Oh, and sentiments in French ... LOVE them ... well I would wouldn't I?! Anita :)
