Hello, Sweet Friend- CAS Embossed Card for Two Challenges :-)



Hi Again Stampers!

While I had the heat embossing tools on my desk, I decided to create one more card using the CCMC334 Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Color Challenge along with another card for the Splitcoaststampers’ Way To Use It WT530 Flutter By, Butterflies (see details here and gallery here). 

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites yet, again, I would encourage you to do so- great inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Using the Embossing Buddy® to de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock. 

Ink the scroll image from Everything Eleanor using Versamark™ ink and stamp onto the prepared cardstock. 

Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.

Trim the panel and  mount onto a piece of Tangelo Twist cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Bermuda Bay card base.

Ink the label image from Everything Eleanor with Bermuda Bay Classic Ink, stamp off onto scrap paper and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. 

“Fussy-cut” the label, lightly sand with the sanding block and mount it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, stamp the butterflies onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Color the butterflies using an AquaPainter™ with Tangelo Twist Classic Ink, add  additional detail with the Tangelo Twist Stampin’ Write Marker and a few highlights with the White Gel Pen.

Use the Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out the butterflies and mount onto the card front using Mini Glue Dots™.

Stamp the sentiment with Tangelo Twist Classic Ink  onto Whisper White cardstock.   FYI- Originally I had stamped the sentiment with Bermuda Bay directly onto the label and then stamped with Tangelo Twist using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig,  but it did not turn out the way I had hoped-  lol! Now you know... :-)

Trim the sentiment layer and add the banner points with the Hexagon Punch, adhere to the label and add the Pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Everything Eleanor, Papillon Potpourri, Six-Sided Sampler

Ink: Versamark™,  Bermuda Bay, Tangelo Twist; Tangelo Twist Stampin’ Write Marker, White Gel Pen

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Tangelo Twist

Accessories:  Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Punches- Hexagon and Elegant Butterfly; Pearls


Thanks again for stopping by- I will be sharing a few more cards later today :-)

A beautifully balanced card - I love the butterflies - they look real in that Tangelo colour! I also am liking the gold flourish - a beautiful touch. Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary this week. :)
