Just a reminder that there is still time to play along with us at Time Out Challenge where we are CASE-ing the most awesome Hannelie. Her card is so inspirational and unique. We are also joined this week by Guest Designer Susanne who has created a stunning card for the challenge. Make sure you check them out, and the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the Design Team. There is $15 to win courtesy of our kind sponsors Happy Little Stampers.
For my card, I wanted to stay true to the colours in the background of Hannelie’s card. I used the Simon Says Stamp Circle of Leaves die and cut it out of some scrap card stock. I then used the negative as a stencil to create the image onto a Bristol Smooth card panel by blending Distress ink in Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber (I don’t have Mustard Seed ink!! How is this possible!!!)
The stencil did shift a little even though it was taped, but it seemed to give the image a somewhat misty look which i really liked. I then ran the panel through the Big Shot in a Wavy WRMK Next Level embossing folder, to give it some texture. I adhered the panel to a Neenah Solar White 110lb card base.For the sentiment I used the AMAZING CZ Designs Simple Sentiments set – it has some amazing unique sentiments in there I’ve not seen anywhere else. I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder. I then trimmed it out and adhered it to the front of the panel with foam tape. To finish I added a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Sparkling Clear. The card I was CASEing is here:
That’s it! I hope you enjoyed it – super simple and super CAS for me! Be sure to join in the fun.
