Happy Little Stampers May 2018 CAS Challenge

Good evening!

I can't believe we're into May already, and the start of a new month means lots of new challenges starting over at Happy Little Stampers.  Right now the CAS Challenge is just beginning so here is this month's challenge cue card...



One layer cards don't have to be challenging so please do give this a go even if OLCs fill you with dread!  


Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

IF YOU USE STAMPS BY HAPPY LITTLE STAMPERS AND YOU ARE OUR RANDOM WINNER, YOUR PRIZE WILL BE DOUBLED!


I decided to get ahead and create a Christmas card!  I know I'll still be rushing to finish them all once we get to December but every little helps!  Here it is...



I started by die cutting a circle from a scrap of cardstock which I then used to mask a negative circle on my card base.  I firstly blended with two shades of Distress Ink and created more shading around the edges.  I then used two different snowflake stamps to create the pattern on my bauble using dark blue pigment ink.  After removing the mask I hand drew the string and bow using a silver pen and then stamped the sentiment which was heat embossed in silver.  To finish I added some tiny silver gemstones to the snowflakes.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Happy Little Stampers - Let It Snow
  • Die: Hero Arts - Infinity Circle Dies (used to create mask)
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean; Versa Color - Neptune; VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Silver
  • Accents: Uniball Signo pen - Silver; Gemstones from stash

Challenge entries:

Christmas Crafts All Year Round - May Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - May Challenge - Clean & Simple or Fussy & Fancy (I obviously went for CAS!)
Sweet Stampin' - Circles


This challenge, as with all the HLS challenges (some which will start in the next few days) will run until the end of the month, so plenty of time to play along and link up.
