For our CAS Week #703 at Just Us Girls, Nancy has us using just the center of our card. Cute idea, huh? I decided to use this cloche die that I have had for a long time with many ideas in my head for its use. I'm excited to make a scene inside it this time! Also, we are saying thank you to our talented guest Bonnie this week who has been a fabulous guest designer for October.
Products I used:
Ellen Hutson: Sweet Surprises stamp set
Simon Says Stamp: Drifting Stitches Borders dies
Waffle Flower: Nested Domes dies
Versamark ink pad
Versafine: Onyx Black ink
Wink of Stella pen
Silver sparkle white cardstock
I stamped my images first, colored and fussy cut them. I stamped and cut out the bear twice so that I could cut out his arms and attach them only on his sides. I wanted him to be able to hold the candy cane. Next, I die cut the cloche, the handle, the base and the snow. I rubbed some Versamark ink on the edges of the cloche so that it had an "edge" and shadow like a dome would. I colored the stars with the Wink of Stella pen and was ready to arrange everything. After everything was adhered to the cloche, I stamped the sentiment. I popped up the whole cloche on foam tape in the middle of a 5" x 7" card base and rounded the outer corners to match the shape of the dome.
We hope you will join us this week for a Clean and Simple (CAS) and center focused card! Be sure to check out the team's cards...they are so much fun and super creative!!!
See you back here soon,
