Guest Designer for Happy Little Stamper May CAS Challenge

How are you all?

I am extremely pleased to have been invited as a Guest Designer for the May CAS Challenge "Inlaid Die Cutting" at Happy Little Stampers







This technique is perfect for adding interest to your card without adding any bulk. I had lots of fun making these two cards! 






Stamps: Impression Obsession (rose background), Uniko (sentiment)
Die: WPlus9 (heart), SSS (banner)


I die cut the heart from a panel, heat embossed the background in gold, sponged it with Distress Inks, laid it back into the panel, and taped everything on a card front. Added the heat embossed banner and some Glossy Accents to look like dew drops.

ETA: Loll suggested that I enter this card in this month's 

CAS Mix Up Challgenge
My card features stamping, heat embossing, and die cutting.




And the second card:






Stamp: SSS (sentiment)
Die: SSS (you)


This technique is also perfect for those very delicate dies that are difficult to glue down. Here I used a watercolored panel (not the one from this post but created at the same time), cut out the "you", die cut it also from a piece of gold card stock, put it in the green panel and attached it to a card with foam tape. Before doing that though, I stamped the rest of the sentiment and added some gold splatters.

A heartfelt thank you to the folks at Happy Little Stamper CAS challenge for inviting me to be a Guest Designer! Check out what the fabulous Design Team came up with and then play along! Hope to see you in the gallery!

Be well,

  19. Congratulations on your Guest Design assignment, and wow, did you have an elegant & so pretty design to show. Love the pink shades behind the gold swirls of this gorgeous inlay heart. And #2 is equally phenomenal, simplicity indeed, but oh so striking. LOVE both of these. Wonderful work on both of them, and your panels are just awesome! The inlays looked so good in both cards. Bet it was fiddly with the slender shapes of the sentiment in #2. TFS & Hugs
