Hello!! I'm here with another post as the Guest Designer at Avocado Arts! If you missed last week's post, take a look HERE. You should remember that the Stamp of the Month for May is Thoughts and Smiles and it's been such a pleasure to work with. Today I have 2 versions of a CAS (Clean and Simple) card for you.
For both cards I used basically the same layout and the same stamps. I used the beautiful line art daisy-like flower and for this version the Buttercup paper pad from LilyBee Designs was the inspiration for my color scheme. The yellow-gold, gray and blue-green look so sophisticated don't you think?
I colored the flowers with Copic markers and then added some Glossy Accents to the centers. I also added some rhinestones and liquid pearls to the center of the daisy chain border stamps. The sentiment is a combination of 2 of the sentiments included in the set.
The second version of this CAS card was made using white cardstock. I stamped the daisies on kraft cardstock and was pleased to see how nicely the yellow shows up on kraft!
The photograph is not great (bad lighting in the rain), but I hope you can still see the details. Again, I stamped the daisy chain border stamp above the panel. The flowers were colored with Copics and this time I added the sweet little ladybug from the set, popped up for fun!
Be sure to visit Avocado Arts website for more info about this darling set and their Stamp of the Month Club! And don't forget the Avocado Arts blog for lots of inspiration! Thanks again to everyone at Avocado Arts for the treat of getting to play with you!!
