CASology #377: Sunset

Hello. We have a new challenge up on the CASology Challenge Blog and this should be a beautiful one.

Uniko Studio is our generous sponsor for this challenge. My card today is a one layer, CAS birthday card. I started with Ellen Hutson's Wonky Backdrops and six colors of ink. Blending the ink colors together. I then stamped the stripe and greeting with Versafine black ink. I coated it with clear embossing powder and heated it. Finally blended yellow ink around the circle to create a glow. 

I hope you get a chance to join us in this colorful challenge.
The team has some fabulous projects to inspire you.

CASology #376: Dry

Hi there! So glad you dropped by. We have a new challenge up this morning on the CASology Challenge Blog.

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is:

This one took a little thought on my part but the thing that stood out to me the most was "dry embossing" and the simplest way to go about it was to use my score board and a bone folder to create a plaid image in the corner of my card.

After that I trimmed my panel and heat embossed the greetings with silver detail powder. I also die cut a rose and heat embossed it. Mounted everything to an A2 white card base for a CAS wedding card. Subtle but elegant.

I hope you will check out the teams inspiration and come back and join us in this "dry" challenge. Quick reminder of the CAS guidelines for our challenge:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
