CAS- Four Stamp Sets and One Punch!
I hope all of you are having a fabulous week so far! I was able to spend a few minutes in my craft room this evening and decided to use the colors from this week’s CAS-Colours and Sketches #15 Challenge and throw together a Clean and Simple card.
This is a new challenge site for me and they rotate sketches and color challenges- if you have not had a chance to do, stop by and check them out!!
To create this card:
Repeatedly stamp onto Pretty In Pink Designer Series Paper (DSP) the floral image from Creative Elements using Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink and when finished, cut a strip for the center panel. Mount the strip onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock (** Hint**- I used strips from my scraps versus an entire piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock to save on cardstock and mailing weight- you would never know :-)).
On Whisper White cardstock, use Certainly Celery Classic Ink to stamp the circular lacy image from Lacy & Lovely across the panel and stamp the sentiment from Best of Everything with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink on the lower lacy border.
Add the layered floral panel over the lacy border and adhere the entire card front onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock and again onto the Whisper White card base.
Stamp the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri using Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink, use the Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out the image and fill in the white cardstock using the Aqua Painter and Pretty In Pink Classic Ink (my Aqua Painter still had a bit of Frost White Shimmer Paint on the bristles and that was perfect for the wings).
Add a few pearls to butterfly body to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Creative Elements, Lacy & Lovely, Best of Everything, Papillon Potpourri
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink
Paper: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink Designer Series Pack
Accessories: Elegant Butterfly Punch, Aqua Painter, Pearls
Clean and Simple- I may have to make a few more of these as thank you and/or birthday cards! Or modify the panel for Christmas....so many possibilities when you allow yourself to try CAS :-)
Thanks again for stopping by to visit- I am so glad that you did :-) Enjoy the rest of the week and God Bless!
