CAS Everyday Enchantment- A Color and Sketch Challenge!


Hi Stampers!   

My husband and I just finished watching the 136th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this evening (it is our annual Valentine’s Day tradition) and I know, I should be sleeping but I have not had time to create this week and desperately need to spend time in my craft room (I have been working very long hours at my full-time accounting job :-)))

I decided to unwind and take the time to create a quick CAS card using Ann’s PP82Color Challenge from The Paper Players along with the CCMC188 Sketch fromCreate with Connie and Mary.    Again both sites have so much inspiration!  

Since this card has very little stamping- mostly the  Big Shot™ with three embossing folders, the new Framelits™ Labels Collection along with the new Blossom Punch- quick and easy! 

To create this card:

Hand cut the banner from the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (from the SAB catalog) and layer onto Soft Suede cardstock (hand cut around the banner shape, use the Distressing Tool along the edges and emboss with the Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).   Lightly sand with the Sanding Block and adhere the bow.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Framelits™ Labels Collection to cut a label from the same DSP as the banner and Soft Suede cardstock.  Emboss the Soft Suede label (as well as the DSP for the background) with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. 

Layer the labels onto the card front, add the flower (created with the Blossom Punch from Pool Party cardstock and embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder),  adhere the center of the flower and add pearls along with the tiny labels to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Tiny Tags

Paper: Poppy Parade, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (SAB 2012)

Ink: Poppy Parade

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders- Finial Press, Square Lattice and Perfect Polka Dots, Framelits™ Labels Collection, Sanding Block, Punches- Blossom, 1” Circle, Jewelry Tag; 5/8” Pool Party Seam Binding, Brad, Pearls
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this quick easy card!  Have a great week and I hope you have fun stamping!
