Addicted to CAS with Grunge and MFT Stamps and Color Pop Inks
Hello everyone! Gosh, what a strange few days this has been. Yesterday we celebrated May Day here in Brasil - kind of like Labor Day in the states. And, since a general nationwide strike started on Thursday (don't ask), it was like having a 5-day weekend. But the (somewhat) quiet allowed me to be productive and enjoy some recent wins....
First, my CAS Wedding Card from last week, where I used that beautiful image from Gina K Designs, was chosen as a winner for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #96. Second, my "You Hog My Heart" Card from last week, where I used the dies and stamps from MFT Stamps, was a winner on the CAS on Sunday Challenge Blog!! And, third, I woke up to find out that I was a random winner in a contest on the Stamp Junkies Facebook Group! Cannot wait to see what I get. A big YAY to me and a big hug to all of you guys for keeping me creative on this blog!
Today I have a super easy CAS birthday card to share with you guys. I made it for the Addicted to CAS Challenge Blog. This week's Challenge #110 is GRUNGE!!
When I saw "Grunge" I immediately thought of a stamp set I have called Distressed Patterns by MFT Stamps. I wanted the colors to pop so I grabbed my Kiss, Ice, Sky, and Fresh Color Pop Inks by Susan Weckesser and ColorBox. I stamped different "grunge" images across the front of a piece of white cardstock that I had cut with the stitched rectangle from the Bundle of Stitched Shapes by Simon Says Stamp. I love these vibrant colors!!
I cut a top folding A2 card from white cardstock and I adhered this to the front of the card. Then I cut the word "happy" from the Happy Die (MFT Stamps/retired) out of black metallic cardstock and I stamped the word "birthday" from the Label Maker Sentiments (MFT Stamps) using black onyx versafine ink.
I adhered both to the card front so they sat on top of the colors. I was thinking of adding some sequins but keeping the card this way allows it to be given to a guy or a girl. Right?
Done!! Told you...simple and clean...or is that clean and simple? LOL I'm really happy with this card and love how those inks pop off the paper. I made two more cards like this but not as CAS. Will post those during the week.
Hope you enjoyed this card and post. Leave me a comment below if you wish. Until next time -
Hugs from Brasil -
