It's new challenge time at Addicted to Stamps and More and we've whizzed around to one of the favourites this week, and my favourite also...
CAS (Clean and Simple)
You can make anything you like but please keep it clean and simple
The challenge rules can be found here.
This week's challenge is sponsored by StampArt Design who are offering 5 free digis to the challenge winner!
Here's my card. I decided to use a technique I've only tried once before, the chalkboard technique...
If you're not familiar with this technique here's how it's done...
I die cut a piece of black cardstock and initially wiped it over with my dust buddy as I didn't want any embossing powder to stick where it wasn't wanted. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink (this sentiment is all one stamp) and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Next I used some tissue to randomly wipe some white pigment ink over the black card. A baby wipe was then used to wipe away the ink until I got the effect I wanted. This panel was then matted onto some red cardstock and adhered flat to the card base. I stamped the holly leaves and berries and fussy cut these out. These were then adhered with 3D foam pads and I added some Glossy Accents to the berries for some shine.

The Design Team have created some wonderful cards, and they are all very different if you need some inspiration. It would be great to see you there.
