I was a little pressed for time so a CAS challenge was just perfect. With my box of goodies from the new catalog, I had a clean and simple card in no time!
This may be a CAS card but it features three new stamp sets! Who ever said CAS had to be easy, right?! First, those snazzy striped banners are courtesy of the Gorgeous Grunge set--one of the first sets from the new catalog to go into my shopping cart. I stamped them in Blushing Bride, Smoky Slate and Pistachio Pudding. The line art flower is just one of the fabulous flowers from the Flower Shop set. Even though I didn't use it here, this set has a matching punch which can be purchased as a bundle with the stamp set for 15% off! The flower was stamped in Midnight Muse and the stem is from Everything Eleanor. Lastly, the sweet little sentiment is a great one from A Dozen Thoughts--another new set that I am sure will see lots of ink in my craft room. Finally, the BLING! Gotta love the Large Rhinestones for your basic pop of dazzle! Just like a classic solitaire diamond, it finishes off the flower perfectly.
And the other wonderful thing about the new catalog isn't even something you buy! It's the pictures themselves. All the background colors in the catalog pictures are named and coordinated to provide color inspiration to your crafting! The color combination for today's card came from pages 30-31 of the catalog--although I substituted Pistachio Pudding for a lighter shade of green. Isn't that great? Color inspiration right from the SU designers and graphic artists! Love it!
I hope you loved today's card too! It's an easy-peasy design that could be mass produced in a variety of colors for multiple occasions. Be sure to pop over to The Paper Players and check out all the other sparkle-icious creations from the rest of the DT. We hope you'll consider joining us before our challenge closes on Friday, June 21st at Noon (PDT).
