CAS Hello, Sweet Friend
I wanted to create a few Clean and Simple cards this past weekend and this one was created using the Around the World AW41 Color Challenge along with the CAS Colours and Sketches #124 Sketch Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers’ CAS315 “Ribbon” Challenge (see details here and gallery here).
This is the final challenge for the Around the World site- so sad to see this challenge site end...fantastic Design Team, inspiration photos, sketches and color challenges :-)
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their fantastic galleries!
To create this card:
Stamp the Corner Garden image using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color the image using an AquaPainter™ with Classic Ink from Crisp Cantaloupe, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey pads.
Allow the image to dry and add additional color using the Stampin’ Write Markers of the same colors.
Once the image has been colored, spritz with a water bottle and allow the panel to dry.
On a Whisper White cardstock panel, use the 1 ¼” Square Punch to punch the “windows” per the sketch.
Stamp the sentiment using Lost Lagoon Classic Ink between the punched areas.
Punch out pieces of the Corner Garden image using the 1 ⅜” Square Punch and adhere the colored panels behind the “windows”.
Add the ⅜” Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon bow to the bottom of the panel and mount onto a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock.
Stamp the butterflies using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color using the Hello Honey Stampin’ Write marker, punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and mount onto the card front.
Adhere the card front onto the Lost Lagoon card base to finish off the card.
Quick, simple and the card is finished!
