Summer Pastel Rainbow

Hi there.  I’m back again to share a summer CAS card created with only dies.  Images in sunglasses is not a new concept, and after FaceTiming with my 5-year old niece who was wearing her funky kids sunglasses yesterday, I created this.

 

 

The sunglasses was die cut off the edge of a white A2 piece of cardstock.  Then both the sentiment and sunglasses were die cut from black and white cardstock to be stacked.  Colouring was done with Copics.

 

 

The stacked glass frame was inlaid into the panel followed by the pastel rainbow coloured lens.  The overhang part was trimmed off.

 

 

Updated to Add: After I posted, I looked a it again and decided to change the sentiment to plain white.  I think it makes it even more CAS and the rainbow sunglasses stand out even more. 😉  Don’t you think?  Oh, there is clear shimmer on it too.

 

 

 

The sentiment was adhered, then clear shimmer and glossy accents were added. A few clear droplets finished off the card.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a great weekend!

Here’s my super CAS birthday card.

 

 

  Buddy, the sentiment and buildings were stamped with Memento black ink on an A2 size X-press It stitched rectangle.  Coloured with Copics.  Clear shimmer added to the balloon finished off the card.

Butterfly Beautiful Birthday

Hi there.  I am sharing a CAS birthday card today..  It was really quick to make since most of the pieces were from snippets I already had.

A few Sundays back, I had a craftydate with friends (Loll, Christine and Susan) and we did smooshing with tissue paper and Distress Oxide (DOx) inks.  I came home with seven different pieces.  The Wilted Violet / Cracked Pistachio one was used here.  It was glued to a scrap of white cardstock and then die cut with a NBUS hexagon die.

The hexagon die was then used to die cut on a white Stitched Rectangle snippet panel.  For dimension, the hexagons were also die cut from black cardstock and stacked for dimensional inlay diecutting.  The sentiment was black heat embossed.

The outline butterfly was attached to the solid butterfly only in the centre to allow the wings to move freely for a 3-D effect.  The butterflies were also snippets. And that finishes the card.

Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!

Summer Sailing

Hi everyone.  I have a really easy CAS general card to share today.   It was prompted by the new sketch today at CAS(E) this Sketch.

I found a leftover watercolor piece smooshed with Salty Ocean distress ink.  It made me think of creating a summer sailing scene with it, so I smooshed Peacock Feathers on the bottom for the water.  It was dried with a heat tool and then die cut with a stitched rectangle.

The sentiment was black heat embossed with Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.  The sailboat and seagulls were die cut from white cardstock 3x to be stacked for dimension.

I wanted the water to glisten in the light, so I used a clear Spica pen to add sparkle.  And that is it.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!

Just Hanging

Hi again.  I wasn’t planning to post again today, but I decided to salvage the card I was working on yesterday for  CAS(E) this Sketch #226.  I smeared ink right at the end, was frustrated, so I walked away. 😂  Having fresh eyes today really helped to figure something out. 😉  Here’s the sketch.

And here’s my card.

All stamping was done with Memento black ink on a white X-Press It Wonky Stitched Rectangle.  The monkey was stamped first, masked, then the branch was stamped next. They were coloured in with Copics.

Masking, a mini ink blending tool and Salty Ocean distress ink were used to create the sky area.  It looked too plain, so I went back with a DIY diecut cloud border stencil to add some subtle clouds.

I wanted to stamp “hang in there” for the sentiment, but I couldn’t remember which set it was from, so I stamped what’s up? instead.  A few clear sequins finished off the card.  Thank you for visiting  Have a great day!
