Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge
Hi my crafty friends! WOW! The first month of the year, gone, already! That means that this is a new start to the second month of 2016 and another CAS challenge over at Happy Little Stampers CAS
This month it is Embossing Folder Stamping, and again, HLS are sponsoring this challenge!
This is my card
I used an X-Cut 'Parquet Floor' EF for the stamping and some soft pink pigment inks. First I took the ink pads straight to the embossing folder and spread a little around, softened the edges a bit with a baby wipe and sprayed lightly with a mist of water.
Next, I lay the panel face down on to the inked EF and pressed on the back of the card-stock - I find it easier to control where the image goes that way - spritzed again lightly with some pearlised mist spray then put it aside to dry. Whilst it was drying I die cut my butterfly layers out of a 'smooshed' piece of card and plain white card and layered them together.
When my piece was dry, I die cut it with one of my favourite layer dies, WPlus9 'Sunshine Layers' and adhered it to my base card. Then I added my butterfly and my sentiment with foam tape and to tie in the pop of black I added some black 'enamel' dots.
Why not pop on over to HLS and see what my fellow design team members have come up with for your inspiration this month and join in this fun challenge. Please remember to keep your entries CAS.
I can't wait to see what you all come up with. Have a wonderful month of crafting bliss! Hazel xx
