PP205- Another CAS Thinking of You

Hi Again Stampers!!

I think I am starting to feel more comfortable with Clean and Simple (CAS) cards :-)   I do like the fact that I can create them within a few minutes (versus sometimes hours for my vintage/shabby chic cards although I still like to "de-stress"-lol!! :-) ) 

Here is another very quick card that I created using the PP205 Clean and SimpleMonochromatic Challenge.   It seems that the CAS challenges are plentiful right now- perfect for our busy summer lives :-)

If you have not visited the Paper Players site yet- check out the fabulous Design Team and Guest Designers (plus the great gallery of entries)- wonderful ideas from all!

 To create this CAS  card:

Ink the medallion using Island Indigo Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Lightly sponge Coastal Cabana Classic Ink within the center using a Sponge Dauber.

Ink the floral stamp using Island Indigo Classic Ink and mask a bit of the medallion to stamp the flower within the center, “huff” on the stamp to re-moisten the ink and mask again at the top corner and stamp the image once more.

Stamp the sentiment at the lower corner using Island Indigo Classic Ink and trim the panel to 3 ¾” x 5”. 

Using the retired Color Spritzer Tool with the Island Indigo Stampin’ Write marker, add a bit of spritzing to the card front.

Mount the panel onto a piece of Island Indigo cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Stamp the butterflies using Island Indigo Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. 

Adhere the butterflies to the card front (I have been using Hot Glue to adhere embellishments and butterflies lately- had not used my Hot Glue Gun for years and thought, why not???).

Add two Pearls near the sentiment to finish off the card.   Quick and easy!!

Stamp Sets: Papillon Potpourri, Daydream Medallion, Stippled Blossoms, Kind and Caring Thoughts (retired Hostess Set)

Ink: Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo, Stampin’ Write Island Indigo marker

Paper: Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo

Accessories: Sponge Dauber, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Pearls, retired Color Spritzer Tool


Thanks again for stopping by- have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
