Wine a Little, You’ll Feel Better!

Friday, June 24th, 2022

Hello Everyone! It’s Susan and I’m back with another card for the Random Acts of Cardness Challenge. This time I chose to use WINE as the prompt knowing I had this fun stamp set in my stash from Art Impressions. It’s called Aged to Perfection and it’s one of my favorite sets.

I decided to try paper piecing with this image and I love how it turned out. I used a fun paper pack from Catherine Pooler Designs. If you struggle putting different patterns together I highly recommend using a paper pack as the colors and patterns all coordinate so you know they’ll work together. Easy Peasy! I stamped the image on two different patterns of paper and also on some Canson Mixed Media Paper. I colored the parts of the image that wouldn’t have patterned paper on it using my Tombow Dual Brush Pens then set about fussy cutting all the pieces.  I also stamped the image on some thin plain white card stock then glued the cut pieces in their place on the card stock.

I used a slimline die from Catherine Pooler Designs to cover the back – I wanted it to look like white textured wallpaper then added a strip of grey patterned paper from the same pack as the chair. I adhered everything to the card base then stamped the sentiment.

 

Thanks so much for spending a part of your day with me.

Take care,
Susan

Add a Little Funny!

Monday, June 20th, 2022

 

What better day to add a little humour to than a Monday? FUNNY is today’s prompt for Scrap ‘n Stamp’s Random Acts of Cardness challenge. A few cute images and a punny sentiment, and I had my card:

 

 

I find this sentiment particularly funny as it’s a little more unexpected than some of the usual critter puns. Since it was also the perfect reason to play with these fun Lawn Fawn goat stamps (and dies) again, it was even better. For the water, I die cut a Poppystamps whittle wave background, then trimmed it so I could use it as a mask on the card base with some salty ocean distress ink. Stamped and embossed my sentiment, and my CAS card was done!
