.... Good Evening everyone! It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!
More importantly, it's also ASM's 3rd Birthday
and we're celebrating in style. Congratulations to Kylie
- this is a wonderful challenge and I'm very proud to be part of such a fantastically talented and friendly team.
This week's it's our ever popular CAS challenge - clean and crisp, with minimal embellishment, lots of white space (or coloured space). We also have some fantastic sponsors this week - all offering prizes - see below. I'm going to start with a birthday card - seems appropriate:
Bugaboo Digi - JJ Tequila and Shoes
; Winnie & Walter - The Party
Stampin' Up! - Daffodil Delight, Green Galore, Primrose Petals, Brocade Blue
Spellbinders - Superellipse (S5-188) #1
White Lustre Card; SU DP - Rose Red; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Glossy Accents
I love the JJ digis and there are loads on the Bugaboo
site - do check them out. I printed her on white card, coloured with Copic markers, carefully drew a line around the image and cut it out with a scalpel. I added some Wink of Stella to her dress, earrings, hat and cake frosting. I also added some glossy accents to her specs. As she's at a party, I decorated the front of the card with party confetti - still keeping it reasonably clean and simple. I finished the front with a simple birthday greeting. On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and added a sentiment and more confetti on the white panel.
Next I have a Christmas card to share - it's a bit different:
Sami Stamps Digi - Christmas Lights Mermaid
Spellbinders - Mega Rectangles Lg (S4-142) #4, Mega Rectangles Scalloped LG (S4-143) #4
White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - North Pole; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Glossy Accents
I love the whimsical digital images at Sami Stamps
and just love this festive mermaid. I coloured her with Copic markers and cut out the finished image with a die, layering it on some red design paper. I added Wink of Stella to her tail, bra, eye lids and hairband. I put glossy accents on the Christmas lights. I finished the front with a ready-made sentiment from the design paper pad. On the inside I cut a mat layer of the red paper and added another sentiment in the middle.
My last card is bright and summery and features a cute little snail!
A Day for Daisies Digi - On Top of the World
; PTI - Doodlie-Do
Versafine - Onyx Black
Spellbinders - Mega Rectangles Lg (S4-142) #3, Mega Rectangles Scalloped LG (S4-143) #3
White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Fiesta!; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear;
Such a fun and quirky digital image - I adore that cute little snail and he really sparkles in the sun - he's covered with Wink of Stella! I coloured with Copics, cut out with a die, layered on to a mat and adhered in the centre of the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of the same design paper and added some flowers to the white panel.
