Hello and welcome back to the first STAMPlorations CAS challenge after our summer break. It's so good to be back, and can't wait to see all your gorgeous creations in our gallery. I have to admit my crafty mojo clearly needs some routine and structure - during the summer my Mojo was a bit all over the place, but now I'm in gear again. Hope you are inspired to play along with us!
It's all very clean and simple really (see what I did there...) - we invite you to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card and link it up to the gallery. You can use the optional colour twist if you want to. You are free to use any products you want to, but if you have any STAMPlorations goodies we would love to see how you use them! You can link up to 3 cards in each challenge. Don't forget to add our challenge graphic in your post, along with a link back to the challenge so others can also play along. The prizes are a $10 gift card for the winner and $5 gift cards to the top picks. Last but not least, if there are 50 or more entries: 1 random winner will get to pick a product of their choice (3x5 stamp set OR 2 standard size stencils OR 1 CUTplorations word/phrase die).
For my card, I used the gorgeous In Bloom: Classic Calla Lilies stamp. I stamped it in Versafine black ink, and coloured with Gansai Tambi watercolours using yellows and oranges giving it an autumnal vibe. Then I die cut the sentiment three times from yellow, orange and red card and stacked them on top of each other.
