CAS Fusion Hello Challenge

Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend!

I'm back with an incredibly CAS (clean and simple) card using the Tim Holtz carzy birds stamp set (PS - the stamps and die combo are on sale right now, check it out!).

I stamped the image on Bristol paper in Hero Arts intense black ink and colored with Zig Clean Color brushes - but sadly, I ended up with some serious pilling of the paper. :( I set it aside to dry, came back and finished it off with colored pencils. I added a blue outline and faded it out then stamped the Hello from Right at Home Script Greetings repeatedly in PTI Dark Chocolate, MFT Natural and Kraft. It just looked a bit too plain when I was done, so I grabbed MFT's Sun Ray Stencil and added some rays using PTI Vintage Cream. I then layered the image on to some MFT designer paper, layered it all on to some Dark Chocolate card stock and voila, that's it. Easy peasy!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great week!

Continued Birthday Celebration :D

I think I've mentioned once, or ten times, how much I enjoy my birthday...every single year! And this was a big one!

About a week after my birthday, a small group of us gathered to experience an 'escape room' and have dinner together - so much fun! I wanted to celebrate each of them with a small gift; they each went above and beyond to make my birthday so special! I set about making tags, because I LOVE tags and the new Queen and Co. Pretty Presents kit was perfect!

I left the tags completely blank so they could hopefully use them again! I started off by cutting 12 white (front and back) and 6 designer paper tags using the distressed tag by Memory Box (my all-time fave tag). I then stamped each of the pieces of designer paper with the matching distressed stamp in oxide ink, spraying the ink before applying to the designer paper - such a cool effect!

I then set about die cutting the presents and some extra strips of designer paper for the back of the tags (not shown). Assembly line style made these quick and easy! I adhered the foam portion of the present to each tag, added sprinkles, topped with the acetate - included in the kit - and the final piece of designer paper on top.

I used one of the sentiments from the stamp set for the back of the tags, also stamped with oxide ink - these inks stamp SO WELL!

Thanks for stopping by; have a great weekend! See you again soon!
