15 minute CAS cards

Good morning Lovelies and welcome to my blog.

Today I'm sharing with you my CAS (clean and simple) cards using only Chocolate Baroque stamps.

As a member of the design team we like to give you a good variety of techniques and ideas, however we are aware that not everyone likes the more fussy intricate designs and certainly for beginners it can be rather daunting, so we are doing bi-monthly posts just featuring projects that take no more than 15 minutes.

I have used Linen textured card on all apart from the first card, I love linen card for CAS cards, it just adds that little bit of class I feel!

My first card I used a few stencils with distress inks to create a bit of colour, then used the Steampunk Butterfly and Artistic Affirmations stamps, the wings were stamped in black on linen texture card, cut out and decoupaged, the metal cogs and pen nibs were from my stash.

This card I stamped the gorgeous Dusky Damask stamp using Versamark Inkpad then gently swiped over with Magenta and Silver metallic Pan Pastels, simply stamped over with Fantastic Florals using Onyx Black Versafine

Birthday words stamped using Adirondack inkpads in different colours and the butterfly from Patchwork Butterfly just simply stamped in black on linen card, cut out and decoupaged

And finally, you couldn't get more simple than this card, it took about 5 minutes, I stamped off the edge using Swirl Centre Flowerhead and using a ruler and black fineline marker pen, drew my lines added a bobble to the ends, the sentiment is from the Birthday words (linked above)

Thank you for spending the time to visit, I hope I've inspired you, have a great day xx Zoe xx
