CAS-ify me: playing with new goodies

Greetings, tweets! Are you lazing on the Sunday afternoon (or morning)? It's been a glorious weekend here and we spent some lovely time outside. I wish weekends laster longer!!

I'm happy to have the crafty time started tonight, I couldn't wait to ink up some new stamps. I have neglected the CAS side of me this week, so I decided to whip up a couple of quickies, before I jump in to the usual layering and embellishing to my heart's content.

I made the first card for the Square Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. It's the only sketch out of four served by Cath, that I feel fairly comfortable with. If I'm feeling super brave, I might tackle one or two more. We'll see :)
The flower was coloured with Copics, and I used the Colorless Blender to create the texture. I just dabbed it randomly all over the coloured area.

Supplies: cardstock: Canson (greys), white; stamps: Hero Arts (Friends Are Treasures, Stencil Flower); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black); Sprinkle: AnnaBelle Stamps: black pen; white gel pen: Signo

The sketch is shown below. I also used the colours of OCC's current challenge - Neutrals with a Pop.



And another one, this time made with FTL155 and the colours of Jay Gee's Nook challenge #11.
I used the gorgeous new release TSG stamp set - Fabulous.

Supplies: cardstock: PTI (Summer Sunrise), recycled kraft, white; stamps: There She Goes (Fabulous); ink: Memento (Rich Cocoa, Cantaloupe); sewing machine; Scor-Buddy; buttons: AnnaBelle Stamps; chipboard heart: Collections; baker's twine



I might stop by once again tonight, but don't hold my word for that :) For my American friends living on East Coast - I hope you're staying safe!
Hugs,

  5. Gorgeous! Both of them. I love the underline punctuated by the gemstone in the first one and the stitched border (so far in like that!) makes the second extra special. You're amazing.

  13. Holy moly, Chupa, what a perfect card for the OCC color challenge. I absolutely love how you used our colors. Love how you have the graduated shades of gray coming from the center of the flower and you use the perfect amount of red to give it just a pop. Your yellow card is delightful too. So happy you joined in the color challenge with us this week at Our Creative Corner
