Addicted to Stamps and More #154

It's time for my fortnightly midnight post which means there's a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.  We follow a regular rota for our challenge themes so this week brings us to my favourite of our challenges which is...

Addicted to CAS
(clean and simple)

We have two sponsors this week:

Deedee's Digis - a $15 coupon is up for grabs
Rosey Hearts - the prize is for 5 free digis

Here's my DT card...

On some white cardstock I blended Distress Ink in Abandoned Coral to create an ombre panel fading from dark to light, and then used this to die cut my poppies.  On my card base I applied some white embossing paste through a dotty stencil and was very patient and left it to dry!  I then simply stamped the sentiment in the same ink, adhered the die cut over the paste and added some glossy gems to finish.

Materials used:

  • Ink: Distress Ink - Abandoned Coral
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - Miniature Floral Collection
  • Die: Poppy Stamps - Arched Poppy
  • Stencil: Tim Holtz - Dot Fade
  • Embossing Paste: Dreamweaver - white
