Get Well Soon CAS card

This card was made with Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves die, Avery Elle Petals & Stems, Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive, a flower punch, Bazzill cardstock and vellum.

The die was cut from Strathmore hot press watercolour card and then painted with the distress inks.  It was adhered to a top folding card base which had been stamped with the sentiment.  Finally, the vellum flowers were added along with tiny rhinestones in the centre of each one.

Birthday Card

This card was made using Penny Black By The Numbers die , Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Mermaid Lagoon,  MFT Stitched Rectangle, MFT Cardstock and Avery Elle Handwritten Notes.

I die cut the numbers die from watercolour cardstock and coloured it with the inks listed above.  Whilst that dried I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.  To put the card together I used foam tape behind the die cut and under the sentiment strips but adhered the white layer flat to a top folding card base.

Splatter CAS card

This card was made with My Favorite Things Stitched Strip, MFT hybrid ink in Razzle Berry, Orange Fizz, Lemon Drop, Limeade and Blu Raspberry, Avery Elle Love Notes, Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins in 4 and 6mm.

I began by die cutting the front of the card base, I then stamped and masked the sentiment.  I inked the stamp with each of the colours and stamped over the sentiment.  The last step was to add sequins.

Rainbow Greeting Card

This card was created using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 2, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangles, Paper Smooches Luminous Spring, Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins in 8,6 and 4mm, silver twine from stash and Bazzill cardstock.

I used Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet to colour the 6 die cut pieces and then spritzed them with water to create some interest.  I adhered them in rainbow order to the white layer and wrapped silver twine around the top.  I used the same inks to stamp the sentiment.  This piece was then added to a top folding card base.   The final step was to add the sequins.

I am adding this card to the Pretty Pink Posh Rainbow Challenge
