WOW!!...CAS(E) this Sketch #75, Addicted to CAS #38: Off the Edge, FUSION: Black, White & Yellow

Hi!
A quick post to share yet another 'black, yellow and white' card and for a radical change: it isn't a shaker!! Do I hear cheering?  Applause? I still have a bunch of unopened sequins to use...just sayin'...

A simple card that features my fabulous Fabulous stamp, because I'm still crushing over that font, my Explosion stamp and embossing paste (aka, in my case,  polyfilla) stenciled stars.  Ummm, is embossing paste still in?  With all the lovely water-colouring on display, I suspect I'm about 16 trends behind. Oh well, I still have a tub of polyfilla and some heart stencils (of the trio on my Heidi Swapp sheet) to use, so though I may be lagging, I'll do my best to create 'fresh' designs with the oldies...

My inspirations came from:
N@ Ali's CAS(E) this Sketch #75

Addicted to Cas #38: Off the Edge (I felt a bit off the edge at work today...or maybe 'at' the edge..or "on" the edge...one of "those" days...)


Here we are: Fabulous: WOW...two versions, in the hopes that the 'stickly sparkle' can be seen.  I stamped the explosion burst once on the card base, then embossed, coloured and cut out a second one, to pop up.



The sun's shining, the clouds overhead are puffy marshmallows, the wind is...well, windy, and the temperature is pretty reasonably! I'm going for a walk, and my husband will come with me, on his bike...

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

  7. Don't even put it out there, the idea that the embossing paste/stencil trend is passé! I am just getting started! But then, I am usually way behind on trends... Love your card especially your glittery stars!

  9. Carol, you are not in anyway behind the times….stenciling is still so very in as far as I can tell and this card is a gorgeous example of it. I still don't own any stencils and so have not tried this technique at all……you are two up on me tonight!!!!!! Shaker card and stencils!!!! That 'fabulous' stamp is quite simply 'fabulous'…..I think you have convinced me to buy this set too!!! xxx

  11. BEYOND WOW!!! Beyond FABULOUS! (I am soooo going to get that stamp!). This card packs a whole lot of 'kapow' with only three elements (I count the stars as one). Love the CAS look!

    PS ....I hear you loud & clear with the idea of 'gulp' venturing into new technique territory!

  14. Well fabulous is just what this card is!! Love the big sentiment and the starburst of wow!! Those pretty little sparkly stars are perfect! And don't worry about being trendy! I love what you do! I am all stamps and dies these days. Been stamping so long, that I have seen the trends circle back around several times, so many of the new ones are old to me! hahaha!
