Cas?

 Hi Everyone, my card is a case today from HERE. It's rare I visit Pinterest, but it was the only way to get me going. I thought I would just get an ink pad any colour and go with it. I haven't labeled my ink storage yet, as it happens it was Chipped Sapphire. I grabbed stamps and went for it. Luckily I had a ribbon to match.

The script stamp, I stamped, then moved it twice to get the faded look. I then inked the blossom stamp and the birthday stamp, then over stamped with an embossing pad and clear powder, to clear heat emboss. I used DI's in the same colour to colour the bunches.

I positioned the ribbon and the butterfly, then added 3D tape along the entire back of the stamped piece and placed it onto the ready made card. I then decided to use the left over piece of card I cut the 2 others from and do something a little different, layered it onto navy card from which I also cut the butterflies.

I hope SiL will be happy with them, just to get a few more done for her. Maybe now I've started I can keep it up?

script stamp - Clearly Besotted mag freebie
sentiment - mag freebie
blossom - Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady mag freebie
ink - Distress Oxide
butterflies - Tattered Lace
ribbon - stash
pearls - stash

the white on the navy is central - honest! 
I think it misaligned by straightening the photo?

just to let you see my Oxide storage, so tidy and doesn't take up much space either. it's by Lisa Horton, just label them now and a few more to collect?

Hopefully this card is eligible for the Ombre challenge at


Here is a video of a shower of rain on Sunday afternoon. Just something to keep me active - taking a video of rain falling! Well I got out of my crafty chair to take it!

I'm laughing at your video, we've had rain as loud as that too.
Gorgeous cards, beautifully design and I love the colours, so striking, Kate x

Lovely set of blue cards Faith. Great clean design and great blues. I do like your ink storage and "rain" photo. Stay well. xx

Hey, Faith,
Your card is absolutely beautiful!

It is a bit much, I think for CAS. True CAS generally requires more white space on the card. If you have covered more than 50% of the card with images or ink, then it usually doesn't qualify for CAS challenges. But, we will see how this challenge handles their entries. The rules are changing.

But I love everything about this project. Chipped Sapphire is one of my favorites. I think Chipped Sapphire and Bundled Sage are not used enough.

Great work and good luck with your challenge entry!
Hugz,
Chana

Love these - a beautiful CAS design and it looks great in chipped sapphire too.
Off to look into the ink storage as I have some for my DIs but my oxides are all bundled together.

What a fantastic ombre look to the stamping, Faith! I'm going to have to use that technique. I love your card designs!
I'm so envious of your rain video, too. We are in a desperate drought here in California; no rain for 4 months and even our winter load of snow in the mountains (from which we get about 50% of our stored water in the reservoirs during the spring melt) was considerably below normal. I hope our drought doesn't last for 5 years as it did a few years back.

Your cards are so pretty with the lovely butterflies, text, and ribbon! Wonderful ink storage for your inks! I have mine in a drawer that is difficulty to see at times. Take care and have a wonderful day!

Vicky Hayes said...

I love the ombré look you've given the script stamping Faith. That blossom was a real find as a mag freebie and it looks so pretty stamped over the script. It's lovely to see you coming to play at Addicted to CAS! Vicky x

Rosemary said...

Shona Erlenborn said...

These are gorgeous! Love the look of the script in the fading hues too! Wow, that rain! We need some here - it hasn't rained in more than three weeks!

Aimeslee Winans said...

hELLO Hello Faith! Hope you are well. Wonderful cards to have in inventory! I'm a terrible one to judge but those look very CAS to me, says Ms. Kitchen Sink Junker cardmaker, lolol. No really, they do and nicely ombre' as well. LOVE how you just grabbed an ink pad! Had a little look at Lisa Horton stuff, thank you for enabling, but I don't do Craftstash USA, had a bad experience. You are very lucky to have her selling these in UK. It's an awesome storage shelf! Have a great day, xoxoxo

Mac Mable said...

Kate said...

Such elegant cards! I really like the look of the ombre stamping. What a fabulous idea!

And what a downpour you had! Last week, we were in the pool over the weekend (with temperatures in the low 30s) but it was snowing again on Friday!! I took a video of that so you're in good company with your precipitation videos!!

Mia said...

I love rain, Faith. I enjoyed the video!
The Oxide inks storage looks interesting. I will check if I can find it in Greece.
I do not know if your cards are CAS, but they are beautiful!!!
Kisses, sweetie.
