CAS Challenge

Good morning everyone!!! Last week was sooo busy with 3 grandchildren to run after....I am finally taking a deep breath this morning in between washing clothes, dusting, sweeping, and stamping!! is good!!

The CAS challenge on Splitcoast this morning is to use paper piecing. I used Rubbernecker's Teatime stamps and some Prism paper and Basic Grey's Wisteria scraps.

The images were all stamped on Prism Simply Smooth White and Wisteria dp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The images stamped on the dp were cutout and attached to the white images with a glue pen.

A square scalloped Nestability was used to emboss around the image like a frame.

The SU Double Rectangle punch was used along the bottom for the ribbon lacing.

It was all I could do to not to add several layers and lots of embellies but since this was a CAS challenge, I restrained myself!!!

Stamps: Rubbernecker Teatime
Paper: Prism Simply Smooth White, Frosted Cobalt, Herbal Garden Light, Basic Grey's Wisteria dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Nestabilities, Ribbon, Punch for ribbon lacing

Thanks for stopping by....hope you find a little time to stamp today!!!
