Happy Sunday, peeps! I am the hostess at the Paper Players this week with a clean-and-simple monochromatic challenge!
I have found lately that I have been challenged when doing CAS cards---I really want to add layers, ribbons, pearls, whatever! But at my very first Stampin' Up! workshop, the card we made used three things...some Very Vanilla paper, a cornucopia, speckle and sentiment stamps, and some Really Rust ink...that was it! And I was thrilled! So we should be able to still do that, right?! So my card today does have a couple of layers, and I did use some sequins, tools and a blender pen, but it's still pretty simple:
I chose Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral as my monochromatic shades, and stamped some images from Serene Garden in Flirty Flamingo ink and colored them with a blender pen, then shaded them with some Calypso Coral. My sentiment was stamped in Calypso Coral, and it is from the retired Watercolor Wishes kit. As a nod to that first card I created, I stamped some speckles with my old faithful Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp! I added some Wink of Stella to my little butterfly...did you know that you can open the barrel of your pen and add some alcohol when it seems like your pen has run dry? There is still lots of glitter left in there! But be warned, sometimes it might come out FAST...see how my butterfly has a rather lop-sided load of glitter, LOL?!
Anyway, to add interest to the rest of my card, I cut off a corner to reveal a stamped leaf, then added a little stitched line and a few well-placed Gingham Gala sequins:
And who remembers piercing? I added a little bit to the upper left corner:
And finally, I had this stitched circle in my scrap bin, so I stamped a sentiment from Treat Time on it for the inside:
So we can't wait to see your CAS creation! Share it with us on the Paper Player blog, and be sure to check out what the designers came up with as well!
Cassidy continues her hairdressing skills on one of Dana's old Barbie dolls....I believe she is dressed in a dress I made with fabric from I dress I once wore!!
Hmmm...the colors and prints in that dress make me want to stamp something, LOL! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
