CAS4 Day Two

Three cards today, one for each of the examples today which all involved Die cutting.

This wasn't quite what I envisioned when I started making the card, but I cannot say that I am displeased with the outcome. The card has a bit more impact in person, the gold embossing shines, and the gold glitter paper really glistens.  I started with white paper, stamped - embossed - inked - diecut then mounted the panel onto a card front.  Supplies - SSS -Valentine Spoons Stamp Set, Mama Elephant Heart Border Die, Distress inks Milled Lavendar, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Embossing powder Hero Arts Gold.

Debbie Hughes made a spectacular card out of bits and pieces from various dies, and mounted it onto dark grey cardstock.  This took time.  I didn't have the dies she used, some but not all.  However, this is a definitely a very close CASE of her card. Patience is the key word.  Dies - SSS - Heart Wreath, Fresh Daisies, Love You small; Memory Box- Precious Hearts, Prim Poppy, Mini Heart Collection; Elizabeth Craft- Bunch of flowers.

Shari Carroll made an amazing card with the feathers, fun foam and all her special little bits and pieces.  I need Valentine cards, so this went a bit off the rails from her card, however 97% of it is a CASE of her project. Dies-SSS-Pointed Feather, Lawn Fawn - Party Banners, SSS - Moonshine sequins, DCVW Glitter Paper, Stampin Up Washi Tape, Fun Foam, Hero Arts Pool Ink.

The class as usual is fantastic. These instructors are so very talented.  Give it a try if you can.

Thanks for stopping by!
