Keeping It Clean and Simple

Monday, May 23rd, 2022

 

Happy Victoria Day to our Canadian readers! I’m here with some inspiration for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt: CAS. Clean and Simple is my go-to style, so I attempted to be “extra” CAS with today’s card:

 

 

 

This is my first time using an Anita Jeram stamp – this one is Back Card Bunny, but I chose to give him front-of-card status. (He has a matching die, as well.) Theoretically, this could be a one layer card, but since he’s coloured with Copics and there was a little bleed-through, I adhered my panel to a sand cardbase.

 

If you’re posting a CAS card on social media, be sure to tag it with #snschallenge – you’ll be in the running for a $50 gift certificate to the Scrap ‘n Stamp store!

 

Home is Where the Books Are!

Happy Friday! Today’s Random Acts of Cardness word is HOME, and I made a card that, for me, has lots of elements of home:

 

 

I’ve used two new stamp and die sets from Avery Elle, Feels Like Home and Feels Like Home Addition. So cute! I had to make sure I included books, a hot beverage (tea for me, please) and a cat. Everything is from the first set except for the reading koala and the sentiment, which come from the addition. Because I can’t help myself, I stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder before colouring everything with Copic markers.  To create a bit of flooring, I masked off the top part of my white panel and lightly applied my antique linen distress ink pad directly to the cardstock. (I should probably reink it, but it adds the perfect variations of colour at the moment!) I added my panel to my card base before arranging everyone into their little scene.

 

 

I’d love to see how you might interpret today’s word prompt! Enjoy your weekend.

Love You Furever

Has spring sprung yet where you live? We’ve had a few chilly days lately where I am, but I’m trying to keep spring in mind with today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt: GREEN! I could have gone with plants and greenery, but it seemed a while since I’d made a cat card, so…

 

 

… green and cats! I made a stencilled background using distress inks: mostly twisted citron and mowed lawn, with a little squeezed lemonade at the top and rustic wilderness at the bottom. That done, I stamped, embossed and Copic-coloured my two cute MFT cats – grey for the current master Duncan, and calico for the now-departed Cricket. 🙂  I also stamped and embossed the sentiment. For the green circle mat, I blended white cardstock to match using mowed lawn ink, and then used twisted citron for the edges of the card base that would show.
