Peace...Inkspirational Challenge #123~Designer's Choice: CAS with Sparkle

Hello,

First, a round of applause for the fabulous *chill* creations so many of you brought to the Inkspirational gallery over the past two weeks!  So. Much. Inspiration!  Thank you for supporting our challenges!

Time for the team and I, along with our wonderful guest designer, Tracey M, to welcome you to Inkspirational Challenge #123, where you're invited to 'make the season bright' by adding *sparkle* to your CAS creations!  Sprinkles of glitter, gold embossing, a scattering of sequins, a shaker...so many choices!

 

For the longest time, I've had a swoon-fest over a gorgeous card (click here) created by Vanessa Menhorn, for Winnie & Walter's blog.  A while back, I ordered the ingredients to case her card...and this challenge provided incentive to do so.  Actually, forget the 'casing'...I shamelessly copied her card (her's is much prettier), with only one 'switch': Nuvo Blizzard White droplets in place of her pretty sequins.  Using dies for embossing is rare for me, but after seeing the results with this technique, especially with this particular card's style...well, let's just say, I'll be trying this out more often. Actually, 'more often' already happened: I wound up with 8 of these, switching up the gold Peace with other colours: red, green, white, copper.  


Here's a red version,  just because...

  1. Gorgeous! I'm ready to swoon over just how pretty this is. I'm so glad you shared. That is one pretty star and the sparkly sentiment helps it shine. I've not embossed with dies too much (or maybe even ever) and it looks terrific. Thanks for sharing such wonderful inspiration! I'm glad I'm not the only one who shamelessly cases as well. :) I'm in good company! Have a lovely weekend!
