CAS Cards (Written Tutorial)


 



Happy Monday!!!



Hello my most loyal followers and welcome those of you new to my blog, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, I had a wonderful time singing  with my sister and friend's as planned and I did a whole lot of cookin!...
Here goes: I made a "Squash Roast Pork" all smothered in ginger garlic rosemary and a dash of salt, a big roast beef done in the slow cooker with tomatoes, cumin, molasses, onion, garlic and correander..On half I made a banic over top when it was near done, (switched it over to the oven to do this) and the other half I made sloppy joes for my oldest son Ryan.. (they are to die for) , and for Michael I made homemade pizza on Painni Bread with my special homemade tomato sauce... Micahel tells me I make the best pizza and coming from a real fussy little guy I will certainly own it..


Today I have 3 cards I want to show you and they were super easy to make! I only had time to write out one tutorial.

Lets start with the "Just a Note" card
(Click on image to enlarge)

 
 
 
What you will need:
 
 
Silver/White Cardstock (Fresh Squeezed Stamps)
Sequins
Silver Stickles
Deco tape
"Just a note" stamp (Fresh Squeezed Stamps)
 
How to make this card:
 
 Cut:
 
5" by 4 1/4" Silver Cardstock (free kit from Paper Made Bakery)
then 5" by 1 3/4" White Cardstock
  • Adhere white cardstock in center of Silver Cardstock as shown.
  •  Add a strip of deco tape in the center of the white cardstock , * (You could also cut strips of paper to get the same effect if you don't have deco tape or washi tape.), trim edges with scissors
  • Add a bloom topped with a little sparkle by using silver stickles by Tim Holtz...(My bloom was also from a kit from Paper Made Bakery)
  • Add two different size silver sequins randomly to the top right of the bloom along with stickles to give it that little extra shine.
  • Add a sequin to the center of your bloom
  • Stamp your sentiment to the lower right corner on the white cardstock
Easy Peasy!!!
 
 
Next ..."I miss you like Crazy" card
 
I stamped each circle using different colored ink and to get the silver edges (lets see if I can explain this) I used my circle punch and punched out 3 circles , then to only get that small fraction I punched the circle negative of each of the 3 circles )
 
Okay so I can't explain it , how about a picture?
 
 
 
Products Used:
 
1 1/4" Circle Punch
1 1/4" Circle Stamp
Pink/Yellow/Blue Ink Pad
