CAS85 Upsy Daisy

While I had the Upsy Daisy set out, I decided to create a couple of cards using the fall colors for the Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge from Splitcoast (see http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=all&si=CAS85&what=keywords for their gallery submissions) along with the new SUO Challenge #2 Big Shot (see http://suochallenges.com/?p=36). 

The first card uses the emboss resist technique along with sponge daubers with Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red and Tangerine Tango. 

Stamp Sets:  Upsy Daisy, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Ink: Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  Big Shot, Finial Press EF, Sponge Daubers, Word Window and Modern Label Punch, 5-in-1 Distressing Tool, Color Spritzer Tool, Early Espresso Marker, 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon. 






The second card uses the same set but instead of emboss resist, I punched the Very Vanilla circle out with the new 2 ½” XL Circle punch, sponged the colors with the sponge daubers and then stamped the Upsy Daisy in Early Espresso. 

I used the new embossing folder, Elegant Lines, and half of a previously embossed Top Note die cut and some more of that luscious Early Espresso Satin Ribbon. 

Stamp Sets:  Upsy Daisy,  Heard From The Heart
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Ink: Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  Big Shot, Elegant Lines and Square Lattice EF, Sponge Daubers, Color Spritzer Tool, Early Espresso Marker, 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon. 

Thanks again for visiting!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope all of you are able to take time to have some fun stamping- it is so therapeutic!
