Celebration with optional twist of one-layer cards
There are already some incredible celebratory cards in the Gallery, including some fantastic one-layer wonders. So keep them coming!!
We are also very excited to have CAS-ual Fridays Stamps as the Sponsor of this challenge and they are giving a $20 voucher to the winner. How fabulous is that!!!!
If you saw my blog post yesterday, you will have read that I've been having a few problems with my hands. So I'm starting off simply with my card making and slowly getting back into it. And of course I'm a HUGE fan of one-layer cards, so this was the perfect time to make one:
I finally got my hands on some Distress Oxide Inks (and saw the other day they are releasing 12 more colours.....) and wanted to see if they spread like butter as so many people have said.
To create the stripes I simply used some wide washi tape and created each stripe, trying to alternate the sizes as I went. And that Oxide ink really does spread beautifully!! Once I was happy with the stripes I used my heat gun to make sure they were dry as I was wanted to do some heat embossing.
Using Versafine Black ink I stamped the sentiments (from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Wait for It') twice on top of the stripes and immediately heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This gives the words the most amazing shine which I couldn't quite capture with my photo. All that was left to do then was add some sequins from Neat and Tangled and I was finished!!
The stamp set I used 'Wait for It' is actually one of many stamp sets being 'Retired' by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and they are a really good price at the moment. You could even save a bit more by using my 'Girl Friday' code below!!
I'm going to link this card to Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
Will also link to the AAA Card Challenge # 93 where their theme is:
