Sunday 20 January 2019


Good morning friends.
I'm posting early on this Sunday morning as the GD for AAA Cards. 
Here is my inspiration card for you.

The theme for the next two weeks is -

Well that is pretty self explanatory but don't forget to keep it CAS!

To start, I chose my Concord and 9th Blooms Fill in stamp and die set, then masked off the bottom two thirds of my A6 white base card with a large Post It note. I then stamped the background into the top third with black Momento ink, arranging it so that my flower spray was in the correct position!
On a scrap of white card, I stamped just one of the sparays, before die cutting it with the matching die. Before stamping in the fill in sections of the die cut, I replaced it in the negative shape to keep it from moving around in my MISTI. I also added a little bit of infill stamping to my panel, but leaving out some of the detail.
After laying on my extra posy, I decided the card needed some extra colour, so I added some green and white bakers twine under the popped up posy but no bow, just the texture of the 3 strands. A sentiment from LOTV, keeps it quite a versatile card, just write the sentiment you want on the inside!

For some more fab CAS inspiration, check out the rest of the girls here, then why not join us.
