Two for the Price of One!


I had a chance to make a card this morning and it's for two challenges - Addicted to CAS and Addicted to Stamps and More.


The code word from ATCAS is "Flower" and the theme this week at Addicted to Stamps and More is "Anything Goes".


I really tried to keep it CAS and this is what I came up with.  I paper pieced the rose from a pattern that I found years ago.  I scanned it into my computer, then brought it into my Silhouette program and turned it into a cut file. I cut the rose stem and leaf from green card stock, then darkened the edges with a Copic marker.  I inked the edges of each piece of the rose bloom with some black ink to give it a little more dimension.  Lastly, I added a few dew drops to the rose and leaf with some crystal lacquer.  I made the vase with a banner die, just turned it on end. I colored it with Copics, then added a layer of crystal lacquer.  I grounded the vase with an oval from Avery Elle.  The sentiment is from HA.  I stamped the oval shadow and the sentiment with HA soft granite.  I embossed the top half of a panel with Cuttlebug EF, then scored a couple of lines below the embossing.  I added another panel behind the embossed panel.  To make it match my colors, I simply applied the soft granite ink to the edges of a piece of white card stock, then used it as a mat.  I popped the panel on a white card base.  I also added a touch of shading with a C2 Copic right below the embossed panel.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...

A clear winner, Susan! I'm trying to think of a word that is MORE than "rock," as in "you rock." That's a perfectly awesome thing to say, but sometimes I want to tell someone they MORE than rock ... How's about: you boogie-woogie!!
