Rainbow Birthday...Addicted to Stamps and More #109~Clean and Simple, CAS(E) this Sketch #88, Stretch Your Stamps 2

Hi all!  I'm delighted to share a DT card for the new Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #109: Clean and Simple.  

My creation today is one of my homework assignments from Day 7 of  Stretch Your Stamps 2 online card class,
inspired by Laura Bassen's lesson on transforming a graphic shaped stamp into a new shape.  I went with an image from my Annabelle Stamps Scribble Scrabble 2 set and pretty much cased Laura's card.  It's simple (especially to recreate), clean, crisp...and a wonderful way to see the possibilities of graphic stamps.


In fact, to show you how easy this technique is, I made a second one


sparked by CAS(E) this Sketch #88


Head over to see what the amazingly talented DT has created to whet your creative appetite, then whip up a CAS card of your own and share it in the gallery. The winner will receive a choice of 3 digis from

Looking forward to seeing your CAS-ilicious delights!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

Greta said...

Oh how I adore these cards, Carol! Maybe my favorite I'd seen of people's homework! Note to self: finish the stencil class so you can justify taking another one--LOL!

So pretty, Carol! Love how you _didn't_ mask off the shapes but have them overlapping. The dimensional effect is pretty neat … I'm usually masking off everything for fear it would look messy, but I really like the look you got here. Now I need to find my Clearly Besotted Geometric shapes and time to use them … *hurries off* :)

Awesome technique! I wish I could see things differently like that. The colours are amazing, Carol. I too love that you overlapped them! xx

Julie Beech said...

Ok once again I'm picking up my jaw off the floor, these cards are awesome!!! Here I was ohhhing and ahhhing over the circle card and now I'm ohhhing and ahhhing over this one too. I can't believe how you can take a simple what looks like a petal and make some this gorgeous Carol! I really need to start looking at my stamps in a different light. Of course I'm not sure I'm creative enough to come up with something like this on my own. lol Love these my friend. Hugs, Brenda

Dana said...
