CAS-ual Fridays #144 - Clean and Simple Challenge

G'day folks!

Time for another Clean and Simple Challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays.  Do you fancy a bit of Tic Tac Toe-ing?

Choose any row - vertical, horizontal or diagonal - and use all three techniques on your project.  I opted for stenciling, die cutting and embossing.  And I got to play with new stuff! Check out this new  Autumn Blessings set with matching dies. How cute is that acorn?

I die cut one of the leaves and used it to stencil a couple of leaves with distress inks, directly on to the card. I then die cut a couple of the oak leaves, inked them and heat embossed them all with gold embossing powder. The acorn is also a die cut, stamped and coloured with Copics and Spectrum Noir markers. 

You have until October 30 to link up your projects. Fancy a more layered look? Then why not link up to the CAS-ual Chic Challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate at the CAS-ual Fridays store.

Happy stamping!

  1. This is so cute!! Love the touch of gold and rainbow effect on the Greetings!

  2. Those leaves are fabulous Claire ... such brilliant blending and yummy hint of gold ... gorgeous with that sweet little acorn! Hugs, Anita :)

  3. How funny, I think we all chose the same row!! This is such a clever card. I love the multi coloured sentiment and using the leaf die-cut negatives for stencils is such a cool idea. And the colouring of your acorn is amazing, especially the highlighting. Spectacular card!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
