A few days ago, I found a new CAS challenge blog (thanks, Hannelie!), AAA Cards CAS Challenge, and for their third challenge, the theme is "INSPIRE" and CASE a card by Linda Beesom. Here is a photo of Linda’s card:
And, here is my card:
It wasn’t until I was finished, that I realized there is no stamping on this card...so strange!!! So, to begin, I inked my Swiss Dot stencil with shadow inks, then die cut and embossed the black panel with the Linen/Canvas Impression Plate. I die cut the Dream Cloud in vellum and inked cardstock to create a matching gradient of colors for the positive alphas. I added a few sequins and enamel dots, and a coat of Wink of Stella clear glitter to the word dream. It’s difficult to see the sparkle on screen, so here is a close up:
This week’s challenge at Addicted to Stamps is ‘Anything Goes', so I would also like to submit my card there, as well!
My 2nd card is for two challenges: CAS(E) This Sketch, and The Card Concept, for the theme ‘Coffee’:
Ever since I bought Avery Elle’s Rounded Diamonds stamp and die set, I’ve been trying to think of a unique way to use them on a card. So, when I saw the hexagon on the sketch, I decided to go with what I had on hand and create a CAS design. I used just the die and created an aperture for the cup and saucer. I used the rock n’ roll technique on the image, colored pencils for shading, and gold embossing powder for the sentiment.
So, that’s it for me ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!
