Good morning 🙂 I just had to take another stab at a CAS card….practice makes you more comfortable, right? For this, I used one of my first Aurora Wings digital stamps, the Pansy Corner 1. I love pansies….there are such a wide range of colors in these pretty flowers, so I decided to go with fall colors on this card. I printed the image up on kraft paper, then colored it up with my Prismacolor pencils. I may or may not have got a grease splat on the background, which may or may not have caused me to add the black banner under the gold “congratulations” that was cut with a Tattered Lace die. I sprinkled some gold embossing powder around the image, then matted everything in black 🙂 I’m loving the look of these vibrant pansies with the kraft and black 🙂

Hi there! I’m on vacation, so am using my time to play 🙂 This card features a gorgeous image from Power Poppy, it’s the Rose and Chamomile Digital stamp. I love this image, it reminds me of a corsage for a special occasion 🙂 I printed it on kraft paper, and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils. I did a bit of inking with distress inks around the edges as well. For the background, I tried inked up an embossing folder with embossing ink, so the de-bossed side would be heat embossed after I added some sparkly green embossing powder to it. Even though there’s some parts that got embossed outside the pattern, I really like it, as it gives it a bit of a rustic effect. I matted both pieces with red CS and added some pretty off white sparkly ribbon and a bow. To finish it off, I found a little gold dragonfly in my stash 🙂
