September STAMPlorations CAS challenge - Mid-month inspiration

Welcome to mid-September and our mid-month inspiration post to remind you that there is still time to participate in this month's STAMPlorations CAS challenge. Our optional colour twist this month is pink. Hop over to STAMPlorations to see all the gorgeous projects from the rest of the DT. As usual they have created absolutely stunning cards! 

I decided to go for a super CAS card using some of the new STAMPlorations dies. I started by die cutting a rectangle using the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting dies from linen textured white card. Then I die cut the main word for the sentiment using the Amazing Word die and stamped the start of the sentiment using a stamp from Bold Sentiments Hashtag Authentic. To highlight the die cut word I used a scrap piece of rainbow coloured card I created using Tim Holtz Distress Paints. Last, I added some adhesive gems for a bit of bling. I have to say I really love that rainbow colour coming through the die cut against all the white.

I'm linking up my card over at The Card Concept and Happy Little Stampers where Anything Goes with die cuts.

Stamps: STAMPlorations Bold Sentiments Hashtag Authentic
