    Clearly besotted floral CAS card

    Hiya Todays card is a very CAS card using a gorgeous bouquet of flowers by Clearly Besotted. I heat embossed these on vellum, fussy cut out and coloured the back with copics.  Next I took a side folding pink cardbase, painted the centre with gansai tambi white pearl I see paint with a minimum amount of water so that it wouldn’t warp.  I added some white and green paint splatters.  Next I heat embossed a congratulations sentiment on black cardstock and adhered everything together.  Voila!

    Ombré Altenew Rose CAS card

    Hi my lovelies This card is in a more CAS style – I am continually pushing myself to try new styles and I love the look of Clean and Simple (CAS) cards but find them difficult to pull off. I’m always wanting to add extra sequins 🤩 I took a top folding pale yellow landscape card and gold embossed a mama elephant striped border near the bottom. Next I die cut a pale yellow rectangle and adhered it to the base.  I die cut a Altenew Rose in three shades and also the leaves.  Once adhered I added some glue with a glue pen to the middle layer of the…

Next I used stamped the Kind…
