A new challenge...

Hi! A quick post today, for a card I made inspired by the mood board put together by my friend Deepti Stephens.

She is hosting a new challenge on her personal blog, Catchy Design called Let's Get Pinspired. I loved the mood board. And the top right image really stuck in my mind. So here is my entry for Let's Get Pinspired #1!

I started with a piece of white card stock on which I had heat embossed the Large Petal background stamp by Hero Arts in white. I colored it with distress inks in the rainbow order. Then I die cut the letters with Lawn Fawn's Quinn's ABCs and the hearts with the Stitched Journaling Card set. Here is a close up of the die cuts.

The Happy sentiment is part of Bo Bunny Stamp's Sentiments set. Since I didn't want a very bulky card, I die cut two more sets of letters from black paper and layered everything together. I mounted the letters on black card stock, added the little hearts and my card was done!

Also entering this in the Lawnscaping Challenge: COLOR Inspired by the Rainbow

Hope you liked this CAS card.

I was quite foxed when the challenge was announced, since I have never tried this technique before! I went to through several video tutorials, and this is what I came up with.

I started with a piece of white card stock and stamped the flower from Fiskars - Petals from Scratch set with distress ink Scattered Straw. I colored the background with Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint and Amazon Trail which is part of the new Artistry distress inks by Shilpi Crafts. 

Then I came in with Scattered Straw, Picked Raspberry, Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge for the flowers. I distressed it further with some water and had my very own DP!

I loved it so much that I didn't want to waste even a small bit. So I decided to make two cards.

For the first card, I simply cut a small strip and adhered it to white card stock. The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter - A Tree for All Seasons set. I stamped it with the Amazon Trail distress ink. Some stitching lines with a white gel pen finished the card.

For the second card, I trimmed the remaining piece of my DP and adhered it to the card. I also cut a thin strip of paper and heat embossed it with some pale pink EP by Wow. The sentiment is from PTI Phrase Play #11 mini stamp set, again stamped with Amazon Trail.

I hope you liked my cards and are inspired to create. Don't forget to link your creations to CSCC #16 by 25th of July! Looking forward to hearing from you!
