Happy Little Stampers July 2017 CAS Challenge

Good evening

Can you believe we're into a fresh new month already, and that also means it's time for the July challenges to start over at Happy Little Stampers.  Today is the turn of the CAS challenge, and our theme this month is a super easy one...

And, once again there is a prize of a $20 coupon to the HLS store up for grabs for one lucky winner!  You don't have to use HLS products to play along (although of course we'd love to see them!) so just link up your birthday creations, ensuring you keep within the challenge guidelines which you can find here and also follow our CAS guidelines:

I've used two of the HLS stamp sets for my DT card this month, Everyday Sentiments and Birthday Friends:

On a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than the card base I started by stamping the 'Happy Birthday' in black pigment ink and heat embossed it in clear powder.  I then placed some masking tape across the centre and stamped the bubble circles in VersaMark ink before heat embossing in white.  I then blended three shades of Distress Ink out from the masking tape, fading it out towards the edges.  The panel was then popped up onto the card base using fun foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Happy Little Stampers - Everyday Sentiments, Birthday Friends
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; VersaMark; Distress Ink - Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, Shaded Lilac
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Clear Gloss, Opaque Bright White

Challenge entries:

Crafty Catz - Challenge #377 - Anything Goes with optional twist of Embossing
Creative Inspirations - Challenge #278 - Dots and/or Stripes
AAA Cards - CAS Game #93 - Words Take Centre Stage
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for popping by and I hope you can play along.  All of the challenges (some starting over the next few days) run until the end of the month so there's plenty of time to link up.  Please also pop over to the store for a browse, as well as the HLS stamps there are other bits and bobs available to purchase too.  If you want to get your hands on a MISTI or Mini MISTI, there are payment plans available too!

I'll be back tomorrow to introduce the next challenge over at Muse.  I hope to see you then :) x
