CAS Thank You Card Using Work Of Art By Stampin’ Up!

I just love my today’s project. It’s clean and simple…and beautiful! There was a time (not that long ago) when I was wondering what the heck CAS card means…haha…and it means exactly that: clean and simple. Some people also use term KISS (keep it simple stamper!). No wonder I haven’t got an idea: I’ve got a tendency to “overthink” and “overload” my cards. But I quite like the idea of clean and simple layout. It’s just don’t come naturally for me.

So today I gave myself a challenge to create a CAS card. I decided to keep the card white with little splash of colour.

The base of the card is standard A6 and top panel is 1/4″ smaller. For my layout I used Work Of Art stamp set. I love this set for it’s simplycity: shapes, swatches, swooshes (or however you call them) that looks like painted with a brush – fab!

I overlapped two “swooshes”: one in Pool Party and other in Pistachio Pudding. I like how these colours complement each other. Now I needed some simple embellishment for my card. Buttons seemed too heavy. I needed something light, something like… a feather!

I took Four Feathers stamp set and choose smaller one with speckles. I took a piece of vellum, stamped the image in white craft ink and heat embossed it in clear. Then die-cut it with matching framelits and add it to the card with mini glue dots. Both, stamp set and dies, you can buy separately or save 15% and buy them in a bundle.

Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Basic Grey. And that’s it. Card is done!

Wedding Card using Scalloped Tag Topper Punch by Stampin’ Up!

Hello everyone! Few days ago I’ve been asked to make a Wedding Day card. The only problem I only had 24 hrs to design and make it.  So I’ve decided to go with Smoky Slate, Pink Pioruette and Whisper White for the colours. The stamp sets I’ve used are (sadly) retired En Francais and Everything Eleanor for the background.

Greetings are from Chalk Talk and Label Love ( used coordinating framelits and punch). I’ve also made a translucent banner with vellum. And who can spot a little SNEAK-PEAK from Autumn-Winter Catalogue? I’ve used new stamp set Four Feathers, heat embossed the image in silver on a piece of vellum and cut it with matching framelits. For the closing as you can see I’ve used my favourite Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. A friend who asked for the card really loved it and so I hope the bride will love it too 🙂
