Thinking of You – Two Challenges in One!

 Hi Stampers!

I wanted to create a CAS card and decided to use the Thursday Challenge CCMC133 from Create with Connie and Mary (  along with the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSC51 ( .

To create this card:
Use the Big Shot and the Square Lattice EF to emboss a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock.

Cut to fit a piece of Pear Pizzazz DSP (Hostess Level I), So Saffron and Baja Breeze cardstock.  Round the corners with the Corner Rounder Punch and sand smooth.  Punch the edges with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch and stamp the sentiment in Chocolate Chip.   

Layer and mount onto a Whisper White card base.

Use a small acrylic block as a "stamp" with So Saffron and Baja Breeze Classic Ink and color block onto Whisper White cardstock.  Use the Color Spritzer Tool along with a So  Saffron and Chocolate Chip marker. Softly sponge Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz to fill in the gaps of the color blocks and sponge the edges with Pear Pizzazz and Chocolate Chip. 

 Mount to the front of the card and embellish with 5/8” White Satin Ribbon and an Antique Brad.

Stamp Sets:  Lovely As A Tree, Curly Cute
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron
Ink: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice EF, Pear Pizzazz DSP (Hostess Level I),  Corner Rounder and Pinking Heart Border Punches,  Color Spritzer Tool, 5/8” Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Sponge Daubers, Sanding Block, Vintage Brad

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope all of you have a great week!

So cool -- you've went outside the box and found another way to use those clear blocks. I love your color combo. Thank you so much for participating in our HSS challenge & for sharing your idea.
