CAS Thanks - Three Challenges in One!

Hello Friends!!

I hope you are having a great weekend!  My hubby was not able to have his maintenance chemo this past week since he caught a cold (he has now had it for 2 weeks and this week late Wednesday eve. after Awana, I came down with the chest congestion/sore throat part of the cold). 

Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry,
Mellow Moss 
Unfortunately, I have stayed homebound the rest of the week and in addition to missing my Ladie's Bible Study, we decided to stay home instead of meeting with our Small Group study/fellowship- I miss seeing everyone but did not want to spread the "love" around so to speak :-)

Luckily, I can still stamp and create and had a chance to design a Clean and Simple (CAS) card last night using the Splitcoaststampers’ CC555 Color Challenge along with the CAS347 “MeWant Candy” Inspiration Photo Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday “Thanks”Challenge.

CAS347 Photo
As Christians (without children of our own) my husband and I choose not to celebrate Halloween, so even though the photo inspiration is a very cute Frankenstein basket, I chose to use the colors from the photo as my inspiration along with this week’s color palette (and I was even able to add the “dessert” of thanks).

If you have not done so, I hope you will have a chance to visit the above sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their fantastic galleries!

To create this easy card:

Ink the retired hostess stamp image from Ageless Adornment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Using an AquaPainter™ with Classic Ink, color the blossom with Rich Razzleberry, the stems and leaves with Mossy Meadow and the background with Soft Suede and add additional details with the coordinating Stampin’ Write Markers.  Apply Titanium White Acrylic Paint to the flower center (or just be careful not to paint this center with Rich Razzleberry- duh! :-)).

Use the AquaPainter™ to apply Frost White Shimmer Paint to the Soft Suede background and part of the petals (you cannot see this shimmer well in the photo but it is there) and once dry, carefully fussy-cut around the image and set aside.

Ink the “thank you” only portion of the stamp from Me=Grateful with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker and stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Trim the panel to 4” x 5 ¼” and use the Simply Scored™ Scoring Tool to score the lines around the image.

Ink the Gorgeous Grunge large splatter stamp with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink, stamp off on scrap paper and repeatedly stamp onto the panel.

Mount the panel onto a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock, trim and mount onto the Rich Razzleberry card base.

Add the Silver Thread to the card front and mount the focal image with dimensional foam to cover the thread.

Add a few Rhinetsones to finish off the card.

Quick, easy and so much fun!!
