A friend asked me to make some very quick, clean and simple (CAS) cards for an event she was hosting. The cards had to be easily replicated and she wanted some with NO sentiment. So… off to my stamping studio I went to create two very quick and easy 5-minute cards.
The floral stem image from Nature Walk was stamped twice without re-inking in soft suede, which left a lovely random shadow on this first card.
Then I added the tiny bee from the same (Nature Walk) stamp set and some but not all of the bands around his body were colored using a Daffodil Delight marker.
As few final touches were added before attaching to early espresso card stock and very vanilla A2 card base:
- Flowers were pounced with the brush tip of a pretty in pink stampin’ write marker.
- Leaves were colored using a water filled Aqua Painter brush.
- Edges of the stamped card stock were sponged using pretty in pink ink and a stampin’ sponge wedge.
Wanting to add something to the selection and collection that was clean and simple and appropriate for any recipient… I chose to use the Day of Gratitude and Curly Cute stamp sets on this second card. I love the crisply stamped images in old olive and contrast of colors in the retired DSP.
The CAS design can be changed up easily with any greeting…. don’t you think?
Tomorrow I’ve got a new card for the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge, and it’s not a CAS design LOL… Hope you’ll stop by to say hi and play along with the design team too!
