Hi stamping friends, I have a fun and super easy card making project for you today, Painted Harvest CAS Cards.
In the stamping world, CAS means two things = Clean and Simple or = copied and shared, (copied someone else -with credit of course).
My Painted Harvest CAS Cards today are both: I CASed the Holiday Catalogue – page 48 (I love that the catalogue has so many great card ideas don’t you),
AND, they are Clean and Simple Cards – just 3 pieces of card stock.
For the more traditional card on the right, I used Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry Cajun Craze Old Olive and Soft Suede.
For the card on the left I got a little artsy with Bermuda Bay, Wild Wasabi and Black (stamped off)
This stamp set is a Two Step Stamp Set so each flower has two layers of stamping. I started with the larger background image then stamped the smaller one on top, it gives the center of the flowers more ink and adds depth.
The sentiment is a scrap of Crumb Cake 1 x 2, I stamped the sentiment and then trimmed it to fit.
Before putting the card together I wrapped some Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine around the card front and finished it with a pretty bow. The twine on the right is Crushed Curry.
I used the “dotted” stamp to create a little background noise filling in some of the white space as well as the flower center.
To draw your eye in to the sentiment, I added a few of the NEW BLACK Rhinestones – whoo hoo, my favorite new Holiday Catalogue embellishment.
As I have been creating cards I have been saving my colour combo’s:
I stamp the combos on a piece of Whisper White card stock and then record the colours underneath, it makes a great reference board.
For the Painted Harvest CAS Cards:
- Card Base: Thick Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 – score and fold at 4-1/4
- Card Front: Whisper White 3-3/4 x 5
- Sentiment: Crumb Cake 1 x 2
Thanks so much for stopping in and happy card making
