Wish Big

It's Sunday night here and I haven't had a lot of time to stamp this weekend.  I did manage to squeeze in half an hour earlier this evening to make a quick card using the sketch at Pals Paper Arts and the colors at Colour Me.



I chose to use a stencil cut with my Silhouette for the horizontal panel.  I masked the top and bottom of the card base with some torn paper then sponged Pink Pirouette ink over the stencil.  The banner was cut using the banner framelits then stamped with a very, very juicy Strawberry Slush inkpad.  The banner was layered onto a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock and trimmed very close.

Finally, I cut two stars in Pool Party and Strawberry Slush from the Lil Inkers Stitched Stars dies.  I placed a candy dot in each and mounted them using Dimensionals.




Thanks for checking out my very CAS card.




Products used:

Stamps:  Word Play
Ink:  Strawberry Slush, Pink Pirouette
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Strawberry Slush, Pool Party
Accessories:  Lil Inkers Stitched Stars die, Subtles Candy Dots, Banner Framelits, Stencil cut from Silhouette Cameo

Cheers
Karren
