CAS Butterflies

I'm back to girly today with a CAS card.  I really love this Butterflies Fluttering stamp set from Whimsy Stamps, and this time I didn't even colour the butterfly!  Instead I stamped and heat embossed on to a piece of left over peachy pink paper that I'd used as the centre panel on the card.

I stamped the Farmhouse Shiplap background stamp onto white card with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and finished off with a doily die cut from grey card, a digital sentiment from the Everyday Banner Sentiments and a few dots of black Nuvo Drops.  As always, I make the drops onto freezer paper and allow to dry before adhering to my card with some wet glue.  I find I get a much better and glossy shape that is definitely more dimensional than if I just pop them straight onto the card direct from the bottle.  I'm totally Awkward Annie! 😜

Whimsy Stamps released a great stamp set this month aimed at family of men and women in the military service.  I did some heat embossing on the heart and sentiment, and teamed this up with the Camo Background stamp (I used Weathered Wood distress ink)

I love the colour of the background, it sort of reminds me of a Toile print so I'm going to try this to make a more Bev style card with flowers and lace.

Best Buddies

Whimsy Stamps have released the sweetest stamp set this month - Best Buddies, perfect for cards for little lads and their dogs.  And seriously, could this be any cuter??

I used a paper pad I picked up from The Range, love these soft muted colours.  I kept it simple with a banner layer and some twine and Nuvo Crystal Drops to finish the card off.  I drop the Nuvo Drops onto freezer paper and leave overnight to dry then adhere them to the card with some liquid glue.  I find they are way more dimensional and even shaped doing them this way as opposed to straight from the bottle on to the card.

I coloured the image with Copic markers:

Hair: E29, 25, 50
Shirt: C3, 1, 0, 00
Jeans: B97, 95, 93, 91
Doggie: E35, 51, 50

I created the sky using a mask and Tumbled Glass distress ink.

Whimsy Stamps and WOW! Collaborative Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Wow! and Whimsy Stamps collaborative blog hop.  Whimsy Stamps is my favourite stamp company (as if you didn't know, ha!) and Wow! Embossing Powders are my EP's of choice.  In fact I only use Wow! powders - I hadn't even realised that!

For my first two cards (scroll down for the other card) I made two because I wasn't sure how the Silver Pearl embossing powder would show up against the white card in the photo.  I needn't have worried, it photographed great!  I used Inca Glintz for the gold card.  I heat embossed the Wood Grain Background Stamp then die cut using the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles die set.

I heat embossed the Wood Grain Background Stamp with Wow! Inca Glintz and Wow! Silver Pearl embossing powders.  I also heat embossed the die cut Leaf Foilage with Wow! Mint Macaroon embossing powder, and finished off with a foamiran Peony Flower and a digital sentiment from the Everyday Banner Sentiments.

For my third card I used Wow! Opaque Bright White embossing powder to heat emboss the Spiral Roses Background Stamp on to watercolour paper.  I then added distress oxides in pinks, coral and yellow and die cut the shaped card with the Notched Squares die set.  I added a butterfly from the Butterflies Fluttering Stamp Set which I heat embossed using the Opaque Bright White on vellum.  I used the same white to heat emboss the sentiment from the Painted Sayings stamp set on to black card and finished off with the Friend die, the drop shadow set it off beautifully!

PRIZES - No Blog hop is complete without a prize! WOW! Embossing Powders has 6 powders of your choosing along with a WOW carry case to store your powders safely in.

New home CAS style

I'm really enjoying a break from all the frills and foofiness with these CAS cards.  I think this one is the most CAS I've ever done, and I wasn't even tempted to fiddle, ha!  I've used one of the new releases at Whimsy Stamps, Build a Garden die set.

I picked up this stunning paper pad from The Works a while back, it is just so perfect for these sweet little bird houses.

A sentiment from the Fly By clear stamps set and one new home card done!
