CAS Enjoy The Journey- "Stretching It"!!
I wanted to create a card for the WPlus9 Design Studio’s 4th Birthday and the "Stretch It" challenge was to create something or use a product that takes you out of your “comfort zone” and utilize at least one of their stamps or dies.
I know I have said it before, but I totally struggle with Clean and Simple (CAS) cards so I decided to try a CAS card using the WPlus9 Clear Cut Stacker stars (small star) and the Nautical Notions Die Set (the sailboat) along with the CAS(E) This Sketch! #66 and the Color Throwdown CTD281 Colors as well as qualifying for the LOVEFEST2014I Challenge at Splitcoaststampers to use a die :-)
So here is the card- a few die cuts, emboss a few pieces of cardstock and punch out a few items and you are done, right? Not for me- took over 3 hours to come up with this one...pitiful, I know :-)
Ink: Printer Ink- Black
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron
Accessories: Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, WPlus9 Nautical Notions Die and Clear Cut Stacker Stars Die, Punches- 2 ½” Circle, Hexagon Punch (for banner points), Fiskars Star, Rhinestone
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I hope those of you in the path of the storem stay safe and warm- have a great week!
