Addicted to Stamps and More #184

Hi there

I'm back to introduce another new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More.  This week it's the turn of my favourite of all our regular challenges...

CAS (Clean and Simple)
If you are unsure of the challenge guidelines you can find them here.

Our sponsor this week is STAMPlorations who are offering a $10 gift certificate to one lucky winner!

Without further ado, here's my DT card...

I made this card for my boyfriend's mum for Mother's Day.  I stamped the daffodil onto a panel of white cardstock and coloured it in with my Zig markers, blending the colour out with some water.  When the panel was completely dry I ran it through my Big Shot using a wave embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white cardstock and adhered this over the panel before mounting the whole panel on 3D foam to my card base.  A few sequins were added to finish.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Just Darling
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Coloured with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens
  • Embossing Folder: We R Memory Keepers - Next Level 'Wave'
  • Accents: Little Things from Lucy's Cards - Icicle Sequin Mix

Challenge entries:

This is the first inking up of the Just Darling CB set and also the first time I've used this embossing folder so I'm linking up over at Darnell's fabulous NBUS Challenge #6 - Anything Goes
STAMPlorations - March AG CAS Challenge - Optional colour yellow
Stamping Sensations - March Challenge - Flower Power
Dream Valley - Challenge #126 - Mother's Day

There are some lovely creations in our DT gallery this week if you need some CAS inspiration.  We'd love for you to join in the challenge this week.

Bye for now
