Casing the CAS (again)

Once again the CAS favourites thread at Splitcoast provided me with an abundance of inspiration yesterday afternoon.  The first one I CASEd was a bright happy card by Wanda Cullen.  I used her layout and some of her techniques but went with a different theme and colour scheme.

I embossed the bottom of the card using my cuttlebug, then masked and sponged the top area with Really Rust, Ruby Red and Rose Red.  I stamped and restamped the leaves using the same three colours before hunting through my ribbon for a co-ordinating colour.  I’m not sure what it is, it was from a sample pack and isn’t in the SU line up anymore.  I stamped my little sentiment, punched it, inked the edge and then adhered it over the ribbon with stampin’ dimensionals.

That’s all for now, school starts tomorrow so my stamping and blogging time is going to be somewhat diminished.


Stamps: With Gratitude, Teensy Tiny Wishes
Inks: Rose Red, Ruby Red, Real Rust
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic Ivory
Also: grosgrain ribbon, Forest branches embossing folder

    I’m back again today, pondering why I keep wanting to look at your cards over and over again. I choose a favorite each time. Today it’s this red one. I’m not going to even TRY to do it myself, because I can’t stand failing again. Maybe I would do better if I took the Zindorf class? I’ve been trying to justify the expense, but down deep I believe some people have the artist gene and I know myself to not be one of them. The people who have it really have it in spades, like you and Brigit and Susan Raihala. Everything the three of you turns out takes my breath away, no matter the topic or image or technique.

    And I’m the lucky one who gets to gaze at it without having to trek myself to a museum or pay an entrance fee. Lucky me!!!!

    Thanks for sharing, Heather.

    Wow…stunning color combo. gorgeous sponging and stamping of your leaves. The ribbon and textured bottom of your layout are perfect for your main image. TFS
