Just take 15 minutes

Good Morning Lovelies.

Being part of Chocolate Baroque Design Team is wonderful, the stamps and products and not to mention the service is second to none. Part of our responsibility as the Design Team is to help stretch your imagination and the versatility of these wonderful stamps with our techniques and tips! however we sometimes forget the beginners or people who like the quick and simple techniques, so over at Chocolate Baroque DT blog we are launching today a Bi-Monthly blog featuring cards and projects that take no longer than 15 mins, mind you it took me longer than that to decide which of my lovely stamps to use hahaha ;)

So pop along to our DT blog and check out what the rest of my very talented teamies have produced for you, the link is above.

My cards I've used a Linen texture card, I just find with CAS (clean and simple) the linen gives a touch more class and elegance.

I simply used Distress crayons in a sort of stripy fashion onto my Bookmark die cut and used a water brush to blend them together a bit, I used a mask with a baby wipe over it to create a bit more texture, I dried it and stamped using Black Versafine ink the beautiful stamp from the Autumn Beauty range of stamps, added a few dots of liquid pearls and dusted with glitter, the sentiment is from Mackintosh Sentiments and I must say "it's my all time favourite sentiments set! I folded one end of the book mark over my layer and glued it then mounted my mat using 3D foam for some dimension.

My second card I used one of the gorgeous butterflies from the Butterfly Blush set which I very lightly spritzed with water then sprinkled on Brusho Pigment Powders, spritzed lightly again with water and stamped, once dried I stamped over with Black Versafine ink the Just Butterflies set that matches exactly the silhouette's, using again my lovely Bookmark die I stamped with a sentiment and glued in place and again mounting the topper on 3D foam for dimension, a smattering of irredecent sequins to finish off, viola! 2 very quick classic CAS cards.

Thank you so much for popping along I love to read what comments you leave, have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
