Happy Little Stampers February 2017 CAS Challenge

Hi guys

Today I'm here to introduce the next CAS challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.  This month we have a colour challenge for you which is...


As with all the HLS challenges there's a prize up for grabs so why not play along with us.



I'll get straight to my card and for this one I've used three sets by Happy Little Stampers...


I created an emboss resist panel by stamping the images and heat embossing in white before ink blending with shades of blue in an ombre effect.  I then used the watercolour lift technique by painting the images with clean water and blotting away the colour.  I then used a stitched border die to cut my panel and adhered it to the card base.  The Thanks sentiment was once again heat embossed in white onto some black cardstock, cut with a die and popped up on 3D foam with the remainder of the sentiment stamped in black below.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Happy Little Stampers - Doodled Flowers, Simply Said, Thinking of You
  • Ink: VersaMark; Memento - Tuxedo Black; Distress Ink - Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Broken China
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Rectangles; Mama Elephant - Landscape Trio

Thanks so much for stopping by.  My teamies have made some lovely blue creations so please do follow the link above and visit the main challenge blog.

This challenge, along with the rest of the HLS challenges, some of which will be starting in the next few days, will run until the end of the month so plenty of time for you to play along :)
