Happy Little Stampers - July 2015 CAS Challenge

Hi there

I'm delighted to be sharing a card today to mark my first post as a Design Team Member of the CAS Team at Happy Little Stampers. CAS (clean and simple) cards are my absolute favourite so to be chosen by Kylie and Loll as a member of this wonderful team is amazing!

So, for this month's challenge we would like you to show us some stamping.  Please also remember to keep your creations clean and simple.

Here's my DT card...

This card is made up purely of stamps and ink and a few little gems.  I started by masking off a vertical section to the right of the card while I stamped the large leaves, just as a guide to ensure they followed a straight line, then I removed the masks and continued stamping different elements following a repeated pattern.  I then stamped the simple sentiment in black and added some gems to the centres of the flowers.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Paper Smooches - Reflections, Chit Chat
  • Ink: Versa Color - Turquoise, Magenta, Hyacinth, Seafoam, Atlantic; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Accents: Doodlebug Sprinkles - Silver

I'm going to link this card up at the following challenge

Virginia's View - Challenge #16 - 100% Stamped

I love using just stamps and ink and also creating one layer cards.  I used to dread one layer challenges but they are now one of my favourites.  There are lots of different techniques you can use with stamping and there are some great tutorials over on the challenge link up, here.  You will also find lots of great examples of stamped cards there created by my fellow teamies.

So, what are you waiting for?  The challenge will run until the end of the month and we'd love to see your stamped creations in the gallery.

Happy Stamping!
