I created this card on Wednesday for the Sketch Challenge on SCS. It’s another CAS card. I seem to be on a CAS kick since the last VSN.  For my card I started by stamping a sentiment from Technique Tuesday’s Thanks for Everything in Jet Black Archival ink on Kraft cardstock and cut it out by hand. The flower from the same set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Spectrum Markers (BT2, BT4, BT5, BT7, CT2, CT4, GB5, OR1). It was cut out as well and adhered to the left hand side of the sentiment panel.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded. The edges of a 1 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ strip of Echo Park’s Everyday Eclectic Paper were sanded and top and bottom edge stitched. Another piece of paper from the same Echo Park paper was cut and embossed with the second largest Romantic Rectangle die die and the edges were sanded.

The rectangle was adhered first to the center of the card. Next the stitched strip was adhered partly over the rectangle to the right. White Crochet Ribbon was adhered over the left edge of the strip. The image and flower layers were adhered to the lower right with foam adhesive squares. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl over the flower finishes off the card.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Sunday.

The current JustRite Stampers challenge is to create a card using spring colors and butterflies. I just got new Spellbinders dies in and couldn’t wait to try out the smaller of the two butterfly dies from Wings of Hope. I cut and embossed a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and sponged the butterfly with the die still on with Cantaloupe Memento Ink.

A frame from JustRite Stampers Kindness was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on  Solar White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with the largest Label 20 Nestabilities die. Another piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Large Petite Oval Nestabilities die and sponged with New Sprout Memento Ink. A sentiment from Kindness was stamped in Rich Cocoa ink on the oval before that was adhered to the stamped frame with dimensionals. The butterfly was adhered to the lower right of the frame.

An image from Classic Scallop Border I was stamped in Rich Cocoa ink on white cardstock and cut out. It was stitched to a piece of Pink Paislee London Market Patterned paper that had been cut and embossed with the second smallest  Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die and the edges had been sanded. Fancy Waves! Border bling was adhered to the bottom of the scallop before the sentiment and butterfly were adhered to the center of the paper.

A piece of vellum was cut and embossed with the largest of the Floral Oval Nestabilities dies and adhered under the sentiment layers with dimensionals.  May Arts ribbon was threaded between the Vellum and the label, the label was adhered to the patterned paper with dimensionals and the ribbon was tied into a bow. Everything was adhered to the card base, which was cut and embossed out of Solar White cardstock with a Grand Scallop Rectangle die. Rhinestones from the new Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones on the butterfly and label finish off the card.

I hope you have time to participate in the challenge. You could win JustRite stamps! Have a wonderful weekend!

P.S.: Yes, I am hooked on Grand Scalloped Rectangle cards right now and that Floral Oval hasn’t left my desk since I unpacked it. Hi…I am Beate and I am a Spellbindersaholic…..no, I don’t want a 7 step program. I am loving with it!

Okay….so I  am about 10 hours late posting, but I did it. Here is my sample for today’s sketch challenge at the Waltzingmouse Blog.

I started out by picking one of the gorgeous patterns of Cosmo Cricket’s Odds & Ends paper. The blue on top of the card was cut with a Grand Label 4 Nestabilities die and adhered to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper (other side side). The bottom corners were rounded with the Corner Chomper and a border was sewn around the edges.

May Arts Gingham ribbon was tied around the blue layer before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The bow was topped with a heart cut out of burlap and a button.

A sentiment from Waltzingmouse Rescue Remedies Additions was stamped in Walnut Stain Distress ink on a piece of Natural White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Parisian Accents die. The center was sponged with Antique Linen and the edges with just a hint of Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. A decorative swirl from Fanciful Phrases was stamped on top and bottom of the sentiment with Antique Linen.  Baby bling pearls and a pearl swirl from Want2Scrap finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to play with the sketch! It’s a fun one. Have a wonderful Saturday!
Hugs and smiles
