Happy Little Stampers August 2019 CAS Challenge

Hi there

Another month has whizzed by and we're back with new challenge week over at Happy Little Stampers.  Here is the cue card for the August CAS Challenge...

And don't forget to keep your entries clean an simple:

For my Design Team card I wanted to use the top third for my design so chose a balloon theme...

This was very simple to make.  On a white cardstock panel slightly smaller than the card base I used a balloon stencil and Distress Inks and blended them overlapping, perfect for balloons as they are transparent so no masking was required!  I added some light and shade to the blending too.  I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die and then stamped the sentiment banner in black.  To finish, the panel was simply popped up on fun foam.

Materials used:

  • Stencil: MFT - Big Balloons
  • Stamp: Altenew - Label Love
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Broken China, Crushed Olive, Dusty Concord; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Die: Create a Smile - Cool Cuts Double Stitched Rectangles

Challenge entries:

Just Add Ink - Challenge #468 - Just add 'C' (congrats)

Don't forget to pop over to the main HLS challenge blog, here, for more inspiration from my teamies, and keep an eye out for the other August challenges, all starting over the next few days and which all run until the end of the month.
