I have a card for this week CAS-ual Friday Challenge and a project for my Sunday's Bits & Pieces. For my CAS card i did use a scrap piece of cardstock, so i could have used that for Bits & Pieces, but using just a scrap is pretty easy! So i dug deeper and found a couple things to use, but i'll go into details a little further down.
First is my card for CAS-ual Friday's weekly challenge. The challenge was to be inspired by a song in some way. It took me a little while, but i was doing errands yesterday and the radio had Kelly Clarkson's Stronger playing and then it clicked! I used Paper Smooches Hope set.
I stamped the boxing gloves on textured pink cardstock and cut them out. Then i threaded some black string in the same place the gloves ties are stamped. I made sure i ended with both tales on the wrong side. I gathered the loose tales and tied a small knot.
I adhered the gloves to the card with pop up dots and then added a touch of glue under the knot and trimmed the excess. Next i stamped the sentiment 'I am awed by your.' I masked off the 'courage' part of the stamp. Instead of courage i wanted strength, so i spelled it out with small alpha stickers.
For my next project i found in my scrap drawer a small quilled strawberry and a die cut & stamped strawberry. I had already planned on incorporating come clear transparencies because i have a lot of these left over from stamp packaging and i want to use some of it up!
So to start with i stamped a grid background with versamark and embossed it with clear kaleidoscope powder. Then i die cut 6 square shapes.
On the smooth side i adhered glitter alphabet stickers to each square. On the 6th square i adhered the die cut strawberry with pop up dots and glued on the quilled strawberry. I punch 2 tiny wholes on each square and threaded twine through each hole.
Below i took a picture of the banner in a black tray, this shows the embossed grid better!
Have a great Sunday!
