CAS Stencil – Monoprint heart

Hi there!

I am so delighted to be a Guest Designer for this month’s CAS Stencil Challenge.  The host this month is Linda and the technique that she is introducing is stencil monoprinting. You can see the first card I made for this month’s challenge here and I also shared this card using the same technique.

For today’s card, I used the lovely Simon Says Stamp Mosaic Heart stencil with one of my favourite distress ink combos (abandoned coral, spiced marmalade and seedless preserves) and I’m happy to say that I got an impression that I liked at only my second attempt this time! I trimmed down my panel and added a Simon Says Stamp die cut sentiment before adhering the panel to a card base.

This is the second time I’ve used this stencil for the CAS Stencil challenge. The first time I used it, I was really concerned that the stencil was too big for a CAS card so I came up with what I thought was a creative use of the stencil for a CAS challenge!

The CAS Stencil DT has come up with some amazing inspiration over on the challenge blog. I hope you can play along!

Thanks for stopping by!


Bold Snowflake

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m playing along this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge Please don’t tell me I’m the only one that looks at the sketch and sees the sign for the London Underground! Fortunately, I fought through my commuting visions and came up with a festive card instead!

I went through my festive paper mountain and cut a strip of Bo Bunny paper. I then blended a couple of regular distress inks before spritzing the blended piece with a water/Pixie Dust concoction! When the water had dried, I cut it with a bold Simon Says Stamp die.

I attached the snowflake to a vellum circle before attaching it to the card base. I added a sentiment from My Favorite Things and a few gems to complete my take.

Thank for stopping by!
