CAS … me?

Welp, I just proved that I can (sort of, ish) do a CAS card.  It’s still probably too fussy to be true CAS, but it works for me.

I started off by inking through the new Teardrop Splash Stencil onto patterned paper with Bundled Sage Distress Oxide ink, die cut the shape with the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles dies and finished off with a sentiment from the new Cheeky Sentiments stamps.

I dug out a bit of gingham ribbon from my stash because even if I don’t have flowers and foo-foo frills on my cards I’ve still gotta have layers 😂

Cherry Blossoms

It’s new release time at Whimsy Stamps, and once again there’s some delectable new goodies in this release including another amazing floral background stamp – Cherry Blossom Background.  I’ve used it two ways, the first I watercoloured in soft pastel colours, the second I coloured with prismacolor pencils onto black cardstock. 


I used my Tambi Gansai watercolours after heat embossing with rose gold embossing powder.  I added some foamiran flowers – the large one I made using my Hellebore Flower Die Set, the cherry blossom I made using the medium die from my Peony Flower Die Set and finished it off with a sentiment from the Everyday Banner Sentiments , except I inverted it in photoshop to give the negative.  The black background was too heavy for this pastel card.

The second card I’m not too sure about.  See, I loved the soft pink on the black background with the gold embossing, but then I got a not so genius idea to cover the flowers with glossy accents to give a faux cloisonné look and well, the glossy accents seemed to drain the colour right out of the flowers.  It looks much better in real life, the photo not so much Sad smile


I kept this one super simple – the black was enough drama for me and totally rocked my beige world haha.  I finished off the card with a rhinestone in the centre of each flower with a simple greeting.  I die cut the word from the  Word Die Set – Smiles, Happy and Celebrate 4 times and glued together then once dry I coated in glossy accents for some shine.

Flower Puffs Background Stamp ….. watercoloured this time

Continuing on from my last post using that most fantabulous Flower Puffs background stamp from Whimsy Stamps, I’ve another card to share using a different technique to colour it.  I dug out my watercolour paints, I used the Gansai Tambi set from Amazon.  Man that set is SUCH great value for money and gives fantastic results.

I heat embossed the stamp with white embossing powder after stamping onto Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper.  Then used the wet on wet technique to colour the flowers.  So, so quick and easy to do as opposed to the hours I spent colouring this card lol.  I finished this simple but elegant card off with a silk ribbon bow and a sentiment from the Beaucoup Bouquet Sentiments stamp set, some pearls and a couple die cut butterflies.

I die cut a circle from the coloured piece and popped the circle up on some craft foam before gluing back into place.  This gives the illusion of a separate piece cut and coloured.  I think you can see the general idea of the dimension in the photo below

I LOVE that one stamp can give so many different looks!
