Sassy Salutations

CAS211Happy Monday everyone!  Here’s a VERY QUICK card for the CAS challenge today…it was a sketch!

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Chevron Embossing Folder and added to the front.  I cut out three strips of Whisper White and cut into Banners.  I made two ‘bows’ (click on the tutorial link above to get to my tutorial) using the Duo Ribbon and white Brad.  But Mary…where did you get that pretty white brad?  Oh…that is really a Wisteria Wonder Incolor Printed brad that I embossed with White Embossing powder!  I added these to two of the banners and added using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting using Basic Grey and Regal Rose.  I added this to the card using dimensionals to finish it off.

See…I TOLD you it was quick and easy!

Set(s): Sassy Salutations
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Basic Grey, Regal Rose, Versamark
Other: Incolor Printed Brads, White Embossing Powder, Chevron Emboss Folder, Duo Pink Ribbon, Dimensionals


Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!



Swallowtail 4It’s time for another great Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch challenge!  And guess what?  It’s another GREAT one!  Come join the fun!

Some quick notes.  The base of the card is Pink Pirouette.  I added a doily to the base.  Next I stamped the Swallowtail butterfly using Versamark on Whisper White and White embossed then rubbed Pink Pirouette ink over it.  I added a piece of the Pink Pirouette Striped dsp, rounded the corners on the top, layered onto Sahara Sand then to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting using Basic Grey on Sahara Sand, cut into a banner and added to the card front.  Finally I tied a piece of Pretty in Pink on a White button then added using glue dots.
