NBUS Lily

Hi there.  Today’s CAS card was unexpected.  There is a new NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) challenge I wanted to try.  I found out about this challenge from Di at Pixie’s Crafty Workshop who posted  a heads up about it last week.  Like many of you crafters out there,  I am so guilty of purchasing with good intentions, and then letting them collect dust.  There is just so much good schtuff out there and so little time to use them. *lol*  Needless to say, I have a large stash of NBUS, which made deciding what NBUS to use first the toughest part of creating today’s card!  So my chosen NBUS is this stamp set To Have & To Hold, which was purchased several months ago.  This is a wedding stamp set, but I saw potential for more.

Card created for challenges CAS-ual Fridays #155 Black & White with a Pop of Color, HLS CAS Masking, HLS CASE Gloria Lee, NBUS #7 and Pixie's Snippets Playground #244.

First, I die cut a heart mask and masked the centre of a white A2 Stitched Rectangle.  I created the masks for the lilies by stamping them on labelling tape with Archival black ink and fussy cutting them out.  I then stamped the lilies around the heart mask, masking each lily before stamping the next.

I removed the lily masks and left the heart mask in place while I colored and shaded the lilies with a black Polychromous pencil for a black and white look.  For a pop of color, I removed the heart mask and stamped the sending sentiment with Velvet dye ink and VersaMark.  I heat embossed it with a clear glitter embossing powder.

The red glitter hugs die-cut was a snippet I didn’t end up using when I created THIS card and opted for a white glitter hugs sentiment.  For dimension, I die cut 2 more hugs from white cardstock and stacked them.  To finish I added a few sparkling clear sequins and mounted it onto a white card base.  With all the masking this is a one layer card.

  1. Your talent with pencil art is phenomenal, Trina! I’ll bet you have some artwork that you’ve framed! If not, you should pursue it because this is outstanding! Excellent design and masking! Thank you for the inspiration, for following me, and for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell

    1. Thank you so much, Darnell. I just started using pencils a month ago and I do love them, but I am no artist. I love to craft and make cards. Loving your NBUS challenge.

  2. Superb work with multiple masking. This card is really very beautiful and fits perfectly with the theme of our challenges. Thank you for sharing it in HLS. Good luck, I keep my fingers crossed.
    Have a nice weekend,

  3. Wow Trina, a real work of art! How patient of you to stamp, mask and a stamp all those lilies. And the dimension with the monochrome is perfect – topped off with the pops of red – love it!

    Thanks for coming to play in the Playground.

    Hugs
