Good Monday Morning Peeps!!
Hope you had a good weekend and are all safe. The weather has been BUMPY lately, in our area we were LUCKY to not have any major or severe storms. Lots or rain and or course thunderstorms and some hail, and flooding, but no tornadoes. Others here in the Midwest were not as fortunate, my heart goes out to all that has sustained loses.
Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge on The Paper Players Blog this week.
The challenge is a Clean and Simple (CAS) with a twist. Create a Clean and Simple project using watercoloring!
Well, you all know I LOVE to watercolor, and you also know that I have a bit of a struggle with Clean & Simple. But heck, I am up for a challenge. Since Stampin Up released their retiring list yesterday I decide to use a "retiring" set. This one is called "Every Moment". It is a favorite of mine, even tho it has not gotten much love lately, I am very fond of this daisy!
I stamped the daisy onto some Confetti card stock with black stazon and colored with my daffodil delight ink pad and a bit of crushed curry too. The center is colored with soft suede and some early espresso. I added the dots in with my black marker. The stem is a bit of old olive. Very easy peasy on this daisy!
The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set and then I cut out with the Labels Framelits die.
The base of the card is Daffodil Delight and then a layer of Confetti card stock that I embossed with the stripes EF. I then added some daffodil delight seam binding ribbon and tied a bow.
I cut another label with daffodil and embossed this with the square lattice EF.
Each layer of the labels is put on with dimesionals, and the gold pearls are non SU.
Well, that is it, a CAS and easily mailable card.
Be sure and check out the retirement list posted on my sidebar and let me know if you need anything before it is gone!! Alot of retiring stamp sets, some I am sorry to see go, but I am sure there will be some equally fun and beautiful sets coming up in the new catalog, I am excited for that!!
Leave me a comment and let me know if you like this CAS card or do you prefer my more "fussy' cards?
Thanks for stopping by today and
