Serene Silhouettes

CAS266Happy Monday everyone!  When I saw the CAS challenge on SCS today was to use 3 shades of blue and an option of birds I sort of had this idea in mind.  I haven’t done any acrylic block stamping in a while and I thought I could do the 3 shades of blue then add this silhouette on top.  I have to say…it actually turned out pretty much what I had in mind.

It did take me two tries to get the ‘background’ the way I wanted it but what I did was this…

  • Make sure your acrylic block is completely clean
  • Ink the entire block with Soft Sky
  • Ink the bottom 2/3 of the block with Marina Mist
  • Ink the bottom of the block with Night of Navy
  • LIGHTLY MIST with water
  • Stamp on cardstock.

I have to say…I was so happy with the way this turn out.  Then I just made sure it dried good before using.

This is an extremely easy card…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Stamp greeting using StazOn Jet Black
  • Whisper White – 3 x 3 1/4
  • Stamp with acrylic block using method above
  • Stamp birds on a branch using StazOn Jet Black
  • Add using dimensionals

Yep…it took me longer to the blog post then it did to do card!

Serene Silhouettes

ICI haven’t done an Inspiration Challenge for awhile on SCS and when I saw this inspiration piece, I just KNEW I was playing along!

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece Whisper White, ran it through  the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder, added a piece of 1/8″ Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I used my 3″ Circle die to cut out a Whisper White Circle then sponged Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Bermuda Bay ink on it.  Stamped the image from Serene Silhouettes in Basic Black then added the circle using dimensionals.  The greeting is form Pursuit of Happiness (retiring), cut into a banner, added a Pumpkin Pie button using Whisper White Baker’s Twine then added to the card front.  I added some Basic Rhinestones on the silhouette (a little difficult to see) then in the upper right to finish it off.

Simple Fall

You all know how I LOVE CAS cards!  At my workshop on Thursday night, I wanted to nice, but simple Fall card and came up with this fun, simple one!

This is so fun and easy to do.  The base of the card is Cajun Craze.  I took a piece of acetate and cut out making the maple leaf is in the middle.  I then took post-it notes to over the other openings that happened when cutting with the Autumn Accents die.  I put this ‘mask’ on a piece of Very Vanilla, then sponged in More Mustard, Lucky Limeade, and Cajun Craze then stamped the image using Early Espresso.  Then you remove the mask.  I then ran this piece through the Woodgrain embossing folder with the stamped imaged down.  This is added to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from Made for You using Early Espresso on Lucky Limeade, cut with the oval punch and added using dimensionals.

The base of the card is Daffodil Delight and I ran it through the Chevron Folder.  I took two strips of Basic Grey and used the scallop piercing template to add a little interest to them then added to the card front.  I took the Daffodil Delight Flag dsp from Summer Smooches, sponged the edges using Basic Grey and added using dimensionals.  Next I stamped the silhouette using Basic Grey, then used a dauber to added some Daffodil Delight to the ‘flowers’ in the image then added that using dimensionals.  To finish it off, I stamped the greeting using Basic Grey on Daffodil Delight, cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits and added that using dimensionals.

Serene Silhouettes

I love simple and classy sketches.  What I like most about them is that you can keep them pretty simple or you can ‘fancy’ them up if your want!  As you can see I decided to keep it pretty simple.  Since I was going for simple I decided to go with a very classy color combo…Red, White, Black…you just can’t beat it!

The base of the card is Real Red.  I took a piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Polka Dotted Embossing Folder then added Finishing Touches Edgelits in Basic Black on each side then added to the card base.  I did the largest Delicate Doily in Real Red and added to the card front.  I stamped the image using Basic Black and Real Red, punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch then added using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting using Basic Black and Real Red, used the Bitty Banners framelits, layered on a Basic Black Banner then added to the card front using dimensionals.

Serene Silhouettes

I do just love this print…such a cool look!  It really helped to pull the card together quickly.  The base of the card is Pool Party and I added a strip of the cool paper along the bottom.  Next I added a strip of the Pacific Point print.  I made the largest Delicate Doily in Calypso Coral.  I stamped the image using Pacific Point, punched with 2 1/2 Circle Punch, then sponged some Calypso Coral and Pool Party.  I added this t the Doily using dimensionals then to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting in Calypso Coral on Whisper White, cut with the Bitty Bitty Die and added to the card using dimensionals.  Finally I added some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.  Oh so happy!

This is layered onto Summer Starfruit using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting using Soft Suede on Cajun Craze, used the Bitty Banners Framelits to cut it out and added it to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off!
