Good morning! I’m back with a couple of cards for the final stage of Anna’s CASometry Challenge 2 – Make 5! For the final stage we had to create a CAS card using the same stamp set we had used for the previous stages but we also had to base our design on a CASE of a card found on the Pinterest board she created for the challenge! I couldn’t decide between two cards on the pinterest board so I decided to use both! My first card is a CASE of an adorable card by Margarita from the last stage. Here’s Margarita’s card:
And here’s my card:
I loved the idea of building a background image using the smaller secondary stamps from a stamp set! I die-cut a circle from a piece of copy paper and then taped the negative over my card panel to create a mask. I stamped the smaller images from Simon Says Stamp’s Sketch Ranunculus inside the circle and then colored them with copic markers. Finally I die-cut the sentiment four times from white cardstock and used multi medium matte to adhere them together to create a thick faux-chipboard sentiment. I adhered that over my patterned background and then added a sprinkling of coral and iridescent coral sequins!
My second card was based on this modern and chic set of cards by Daria:
I loved the bright pops of pink and navy blue! I decided to use the same navy color and general concept as Daria and this is what I came up with!
I needed a solid stamp for the rose so I actually turned my stamp over and picked up the design side with an acrylic block. Then I inked the back of the stamp and stamped it onto my card panel. Once I had all the round shapes stamped I went back and stamped the design of the rose with a dark navy blue ink. I also added touches of navy blue with one of the smaller accent stamps. I stamped the sentiment onto dark navy blue cardstock and then heat-embossed it with white embossing powder before fussy cutting it. I stamped the rest of the sentiment on white cardstock that I trimmed down to a flag shape. I adhered it over the die-cut word with foam mounting tape and then added a sprinkling of sparkling clear sequins. As you can see I ended up making several more variations of this design using different color combinations!
Here are all the cards I’ve made for each stage of CAsometry 2 – Make 5!
