This week I decided to make a CAS card, not always my strong point!

I started by masking a frame around my watercolour panel and  stamping a section of  Mama Elephant – Wild Meadow stamp so it fills one corner.  It was heat embossed using Lindy’s Stamp Gang – Adobe Fire Two-toned Embossing Powder, a new one I picked up!

I then did the same in the opposite corner with only a very small section of the stamp.

It was then time to carefully remove the tape. Using a WOW embossing pen I added a line along the edge of the stamped section and heat embossed it using Lawn Fawn – Rose Gold Embossing Powder.  It was interesting to see that there wasn’t a great difference between the 2 colours.

I used the LF powder to heat emboss the sentiment from Hero Arts – Thanks Stamp & Cut.  The small second sentiment was stamped along the bottom so it appeared to carry on the line.

Distress Inks were used to watercolour the leaves.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  3. What a lovely card, Helen! The soft colouring adds such a wonderful, feminine air to the design. I love the two-toned embossing powder, too. Adding it along the outer edges of the card really finishes it off beautifully. It’s hard to believe that CAS isn’t your strong point.
