CAS and almost CAS with Heartfelt Creations

Morning ladies!

Recently I promised to show you a CAS (Clean and Simple) card at least once a week....and I haven't posted in a week...aak!  This isn't because I haven't been creating, since I have been busy making cards, just have been so busy with work that every spare moment has been in my craft room making pretty things instead of blogging....

Ok, so here is a CAS card that was posted last week on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.  It was floating in my head one night and first thing in the morning even before breakfast I jumped in my craft room and whipped it up in less than 15 minutes.

Products Used on This Project

Card size is standard 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 Stamp Iris image twice using brown ink, once on lower left hand edge of main panel, and once on other (scrap) cardstock.  Colour both the same (Copics used here YG03, G21, G99, BV00, BV02, E04, V93).  Use the die cut to cut out the one on the scrap cardstock, and then layer it over the other one on the main panel using pop up dots. Stamp sentiment using black ink in centre of card.  Assemble layers of cardstock and adhere and then add a few Rhinestones on the top right hand edge for embellishment.

And here is an almost CAS card that was posted this week on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.  This one took about 30 minutes (at the most), and was super easy, just took a bit of time for the colouring of the background.

Cut oval out of white card stock and stamp iris image on it in brown in and colour (same colours as above) and add blue in the background for the sky (can use airgun or sponges).
Stamp iris image on coloured cardstock using matching purple ink and cut out using coordinating die cut. Add extra colour on edges in purple ink and use Yellow Glitter Pen (Spica used here) in the centre, then add some yellow flower soft. Adhere all layers together as shown in photo.

There are lots of gorgeous creations to be found this week on the HC blog, if you are looking for ideas.

I'd better get ready for work now, just dropping in at the crack of dawn to say hi to you all, but I'll have another creation for you later in the week.  Have a great day!
