I needed a couple of cards this week and after I finished them, I realized that they fit the challenges at CASology and Addicted to CAS. The challenge this week at CASology is to make a card using the cue word carnival.
Here's my take on this cue word:
The carousel horse is a stamp from Flourishes. I cut the shape out with my Cameo, then stamped the image and colored it with Copics. I made the "base" on the Cameo, then die cut some stars to add to it. The banner was also cut with the Cameo and the sentiment is in the same stamp set as the horse. I added a pearl at the top of the pole...and then added lots of glitter with the wink of stella pen. I layered the horse on a white piece that was embossed with a PTI embossing mat. The horse is slightly pop dotted on the panel and the panel is popped up off the card base.
The cue word for Addicted to CAS is:
I have no idea why the crib looks yellowed (grrrrr... it's actually a nice bright white!) The crib die is a new one and I'm not too sure I like it. The die itself is pink and it seems to rub off on the paper when you cut with it. I had to run it through the Cuttlebug several times before it would cut too...plus add some shims. So, I'm not too sure I would recommend it. It's pretty, but difficult to work with. The crib "bonnet" cut just fine. I added a few pearls and a flowers, popped it on an embossed background and popped it up on a card base. The most difficult part was cutting the crib and photographing the card.
