Are you playing along with the STAMPlorations CAS challenge .....

Happy Thursday ......

It's time for a quick reminder of this month's STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge.  We're getting back into the swing of things after our summer break.

As always the theme is Anything Goes ..... anything CAS that is, and don't forget there's always an optional colour twist.  For October's challenge that colour is ..... Orange 

Here's a fun design for you that could be used for so many different occasions ...... big birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, baby cards or, new job perhaps.

I've used the CUTplorations Word Art Die ....... Congrats as my focal point on the card, it's a great size and it says it all!
I simply used the die and cut a piece of white card that would become my card front, and also cut it from a piece of coloured card from my stash.  This was a leftover piece from a previous project, coloured using the watercolour tissue technique .......

use Distress inks and water to colour plain tissue paper, once dry scrunch up the tissue, open out and stick onto a piece of white card leaving the creases in.  When the glue is completely dry lightly rub over the top of the creases with a Versamark ink pad, sprinkle with embossing powder and then heat set ....... I used gold on this piece

The coloured die cut was then inlaid into the white card and I finished off by adding a few stamped images from the STAMPlorations Balloons and Banners set

and a few dots of glitter glue

This is another of those designs that will look totally different depending on the colours you use .....  a great little die to add to your stash.

Speaking of stash ..... don't forget if you are shopping in the STAMPlorations store use my special code at the checkout ........ STAMPGIRLLINDA ...... and you can get 20% discount on your order.

Thanks for popping by ......... enjoy the rest of your day.

I must confess this is a scheduled post as I'm probably still out today with the girls.
We were meeting for coffee this morning, which will have probably run into lunch somewhere, followed by a little retail therapy.
It was also the big Christmas launch down at the garden centre last night too.  I couldn't make it so we may just have popped in there on the way home ..... finish the day with a little sparkle!

Cheerio until next time ......
