Default CAS415 - Old is New Again

CAS415 - Old is New Again

Hostess: Kia (kiagc)
Keyword: CAS415
Week of: February 6, 2017

I thought in keeping with the time of year we would remember Valentine/Love/Heart day, but with a bit of a twist. I would like you to look back in your gallery and pick a love/heart card that you did at least a couple of years ago, and using that image to create a card in the style you work in today. We all change our style as we progress, so let us make the Old New Again.


Please link to your older card in the description so we can all have a look back.


CAS415Gallery

Samples from our Design Team:

KelliJo

Kia

Kathleen

Julie

Tricia



1. There is no deadline to play along with the CAS challenges.
2. Take all the time you need to finish and upload your card.
3. Upload your card to your gallery and link back to this thread so we all can see your project.
4. Please remember to put the correct keyword CAS415 when uploading your image, a copy/paste is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please feel free to combine the CAS challenges with any other challenge.


The challenges are to provide inspiration and to get us stamping, so have fun and follow your heART. We can't wait to see what you create.


And this card was missed by most of you last week as it was posted later in the week. The fave from last week is

CAS414 - What's Up Dog by jenn47


with another view here. Congratulations Jenn, please grab this blinkie for your blog of you like.




email-notifications-for-cas-challenges

On February 14th some of us celebrate Valentine's Day, which is now one of the most popular holidays, inspiring a flurry of card and gift giving to those we love. The origin of the concept of romantic love goes far back to ancient times, long before the legend of St. Valentine.


According to Greek mythology, the first idea of romantic love came from the god, Eros. One of the versions of the birth of this very appealing god was presented by the Greek poet Hesiod, who tells us in his Theogony, that Eros was one of the first gods born out of Chaos (the void), along with Gaia (the earth) and Tartarus (the underworld). This puts his birth all the way back to the beginning of time. Theogony describes Eros "...and Eros, the fairest of the deathless gods; he unstrings the limbs and subdues both mind and sensible thought in the breasts of all gods and all men." (Hesiod, Theogony, 120-2)
This sounds familiar and is quite a good description of the state that engulfs one when we fall in love. From the passage we can assume that he had power over not only man, but also the gods.
The other significant depiction of the myth surrounding Eros' birth is that he was the son of Aphrodite and Ares. Being the son of the goddess of love puts him in a less powerful role. The legend of Eros, along with Psyce, from the Metamorphoses of Apuleis, the Roman writer, is spawned from classical mythology.

While Cupid or the ancient god Eros gives us the inspiration, St. Valentine supplied the name of our current holiday ... so, Happy Valentine's Day.


THE MORE YOU KNOW ...

Kia, I so love this challenge, I love turning my old stamps into newer updated cards. So, I went to my gallery and checked. One, just one valentines card and I sold the set. I so still have the wheel so I will try to do something if an idea hits me.

Great challenge to get out an old stamp and use it in a new way! And a good way to see how much our styles evolve! Here's my card:

Still trying to figure out how to do this challenge! My cards in the beginning were all about shapes, die cuts and not stamps. I did not own very many stamps in the beginning!!

I didn't have anything clean and simple that was a Valentine, but I did have at least one Valentine in my gallery, SC474 Always by Andrea Robert - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers which I picked to make new again.

Here is the update:
New Again Love by Andrea Robert - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Definitely simple...not sure that it counts as a CAS, though!

Thanks for looking.

Heart CAS415 Happy Hearts

Revisited a 2011 card- A Heart, a Flower, and a Cup of Tea- doing a bit more of an organized layout, and a die cut rather than fussy cut heart. Even found a paper button in my stash! Here's my new card- Happy Hearts

Smile CAS415 HB from the Herd

Did a re-do of a 2015 card, switching it up from a thank you to a Happy birthday sentiment, and doing some masking and blender pen work for my blue background. Here's my original card- CC520 Thanks from All of Us. I kept the striped element/button/twine combo in the upper left corner, and used a moss dc flower instead of pink stripes in the upper horizontal edge of my card. Finished with a green paper lower vertical border and some faux stitching. Here's HB from the Herd

I took an old stamp that I have that says Be Mine. I added another "e" at the end of the Be so it would say Bee Mine. Here is my new card : Bee Mine Valentine by gobarb26 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I am really late to the party. But considering it's been years since I crafted I think a week behind this challenge is pretty good!
