Green Leaves – Sending Happy Thoughts

AddictedtoCAS-Green

  • Stencil – Donna Downey “Leaf-Stem Trio”
  • Stamp – from Hero Arts “Live Life” set
  • Cardstock – BoBunny
  • Dylusions Ink Spray – Fresh Lime
  • Distress Ink – Peeled Paint

I am a big fan of leaf motifs of any kind, be they featured on stamps, stencils, photos, or anything else. So when I saw the Addicted to CAS (Clean and Simple) Challenge with the code word: Green, the first thing I thought of was leaves. I sprayed the Dylusions spray ink through the leaf stencil for the background and then stamped the sentiment. I then blended Distress Ink around the edges and mounted it onto a folded card.

Hydrangea – Missing You

Hydrangea-CAS

  • Stamps –
  • Stampers Anonymous Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi “Hydrangea”
  • Simon Says Stamp “OWH – Brave” set
  • Stencil – Stampers Anonymous Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi “Hydrangea”
  • Ranger Distress Inks: Shaded Lilac, Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar, Antique Linen, Mowed Lawn
  • Cardstock – Ninah Solar White 80#
  • Uni-Ball Signo Pen – white

This clean and simple (CAS) card features the hydrangea from a recent Stampers Anonymous stamp and stencil set. The Addicted to CAS Challenge #58 is to be inspired by the code word: Distress. I used Ranger Distress inks through the stencil after I stamped the hydrangea image. I also spattered dilluted Distress ink to tie the elements of the card together and still keep it one layer. I added some stippling with my white Signo pen to provide some texture and pattern to the image. This also fits the bill for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group Challenge #14, which is to create a one layer Clean and Simple Card. It is pretty challenging to create a single layer card! This will be a perfect card to send in my Operation Write Home box. Thanks for stopping by.

catspj-penguin_tag

  • Stamp – The Cat’s Pajamas from the “Polar Holiday” set
  • Tag – Die cut from Simon Says Stamp die “Medium Tags”
  • Snowflake – Impression Obsession “Snowflakes” die
  • Patterned papers – GCD Studios “Joyful Peace Collection: Candy Lane, Yorkshire Pudding and The Holly and the Ivy”
  • Twine – The Cat’s Pajamas “Divine Twine: Peppermint”
  • Wink of Stella Brush
  • Ranger Distress Ink – Walnut Stain

For this card, I used the sketch at The Cat’s Pajamas TCP Tuesday #278 Challenge. This cute little dapper penguin is from The Cat’s Pajamas. I applied Distress Ink to the edges of the tag to match it to the patterned papers. I painted the snowflake behind the tag with the Wink of Stella brush pen for some nice shimmer. This also fits the bill for the current challenge at Addicted to CAS Challenge #51 – Code Word: Tag. Thanks for visiting.
