Blessing My Life- A CAS Sketch with a bit of Romance :-)
I was able to spend quite a bit of time stamping this weekend but was unable to finish the cards until late last night :-). For this card, I decided to use the #28 Sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches (check out their site and the other entries- great inspiration!) along with some of our new In-Colors.
To create this card:
Ink the small panel stamp from Lovely Romance with Brown Sugar Classic Ink and stamp a few of the images onto Whisper White cardstock. Repeat the steps using Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush Classic Ink.
Cut the “panels” out and adhere onto Baked Brown Sugar cardstock for the vertical and horizontal parts of the sketch layout. Add the Pistachio Pudding strips to clean finish the edges and emboss with the Big Shot™ and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.
Create the Crisp Cantaloupe flower- created with the Blossom Punch, Pansy Punch and the Rolled Flower (from the 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch) with a Pearl in the center. I had a scrap piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock that had been previously stamped with the floral spray image from Blooming with Kindness and used that cardstock for the Pansy Flower layer.
Stamp the sentiment using Strawberry Slush Classic Ink onto Vellum, cut the banner points by hand and adhere to the card front. Add the punched flower and layer the entire card front onto the Pistachio Pudding card base to finish off the card.
