Starburst Sayings

CAS DOTI haven’t been doing many challenges recently…it’s that full time work thing (and feeling a bit under the weather).  Anyway I just couldn’t resist combining two of my VERY FAVORITE challenges – CAS-ology (Dots) and colourq (it wasn’t posted on the site but I found it on one of the design team members).  I did substitute Real Red for Poppy Parade!

Here’s the VERY quick and easy details:

  • Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded run through the SAB Decorative Dots folder
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  It’s hard to see but I score two lines 1 1/8 and 1 1/4 from the right side.   Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting in Real Red, cut out with matching Starburst framelit.  Add Pool Party Twine (SAB) bow and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Island Indigo – 3/4″ Circle Punch, Basic Grey 1/2″ Circle Punch.  Add using dimensionals.
  • Basic Rhinestones to finish it off!

Don’t you just LOVE CAS?  I know that I do!

SUO88Welcome to another SUO challenge!  This one was an easy…use some of your NEW SU Stuff!  Well…I do have some of that!

In case you missed it…I shared a REALLY FUN project using the new banner kit (but not as a banner) in yesterday’s post…don’t miss it!

I decided to go VERY simple on mine.  You know me…I do like simple.  Well some of you might not think it is all that simple because YES…I DID CUT OUT THAT FLOWER!!!  VERY FUSSY CUT!  But I do have to say…LOVE the way it LOOKS!

Here’s the details

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded.  Run through the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder
  • Kaleidoscope dsp – Cut piece of the Crushed Curry print 4 1/4 x 2.  Then add a 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of the Black and White Diagonal stripe behind it.  Add to card front.
  • Take piece of Whisper White and stamp image using Versamark.  Black emboss.  Cut out (yes…I AM nuts!) and add to card front.  I just put glue down the stem.  Color in center of flowers using Crushed Curry marker.
  • Stamp greeting on piece of Whisper White 5/8 x 2 3/4 using Versamakr and Black Emboss.  Cut in to a banner.
  • Add 1/8 x 4 1/4 Basic Black thin strip behind banner and add to card front.
  • Add Crushed Curry Candy Dots to banner to finish it off.
