STAMPlorations May CAS Challenge - Things With Wings

We are midway through May and we are still celebrating Spring with STAMPlorations' challenge Things with Wings. 

The details:
  • Players can link up as many winged-themed CAS cards as they want as long as each card is in its own separate blog post
  • Non-STAMPlorations products are OK
  • Prizes: $15 for the winner voted by the design team; two randomly chosen winners of $5 GC

Here is another card example for the CAS Challenge:

I just received this CUTplorations Bloomtangle #2 Cover Plate die and I just love it.  I simply cut  white card stock and overlaid it on a piece of glitter patterned paper from Michaels. I added a 3D butterfly sticker from Lil' B Designs.  This literally took 5 minutes!

Here is another take with the same die:

This time I cut the glittery patterned paper with the die and adhered it to the black card stock. I added a 3D Lil' B Design humming bird sticker.

I hope you join us and thanks for coming by!

STAMPlorations is Celebrating Spring: Things With Wings

This month all the challenges over on the STAMPlorations Blog has a theme of Things with Wings.  While the challenges will have separate linkies, you can enter 1 card multiple times! 

Create a Winged - Themed CAS card:

I used my favorite ARTplorations Stencil Flutterby as a stamp to create my card. Using gelatos I spread the color onto the stencil, spritzed with water and stamped it onto watercolor paper. I "smooshed" the color around before removing the stencil. To embellish the main butterfly I added some black rhinestones.

I hope you join us in one or more of the challenges this month. Also, all products in the Things with Wings category at STAMPlorations are 15% off - no coupon code needed!

Thanks for fluttering by!!

STAMPlorations - You & Me

STAMPlorations is celebrating a new stamp set You and Me.  I made a valentine card and a CAS wedding card:

For the valentine's card I embossed one of the main images with gold Zing embossing powder. I colored it in with my Zig Clean Color brush markers. I added a few star sequins, cut it out with a stitched rectangle die and mounted it to a white card base.

Using the You and Me set again, I created a CAS wedding card. I used a Sizzix embossing folder and embossed the front panel. I then stamped the Mr & Mrs with Candied Apple distress ink and mounted the panel onto a red card base.

Thanks for coming by!
