I have a card to share using a product from the Concord & 9th Summer camp:

I first used the ‘celebrate’ die onto some white card stock, the dry embossed using an Altenew embossing folder.

I then created an alcohol ink background – just using one colour of alcohol ink – and let that dry for a couple of hours. I then placed that underneath the die cut, and inserted the middle of the letters B, R, and A.

Once layered onto a card base, I added some purple sequins, and some crystal gems, stamped the sentiment and stuck that down with 3D foam.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Color Throwdownblue, purple, white

Seize The Birthday birthday – summer activities option not taken

CYHTP embossing folder – option of things with wings not taken

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello. A CAS card to share today – which actually took a little longer to create than I initially thought it would:

I used a ragged looking heart die from the Concord & 9th ‘Geode’ die set – I have a few other heart dies but this jut spoke – me……..slightly uneven, and slightly ragged-looking.

Once the position on the rectangular panel was determined and then die-cut, I placed an alcohol ink background panel behind the opening, and then stamped the sentiment.

This was then layered onto a white card base using 3D foam.

Seems quite simple – but the position of the heart, the size of the alcohol ink panel – that took a few decisions and changes of decisions – goodness knows why – but it did…….maybe the hardest decisions on a CAS card is placement – it is for me, anyway.

A simple heartfelt thanks is what the message is with this card – another one for noteworthy friends for helping me the past few weeks…….

I shall be entering the following challenges:
