Creative Expressions - CAS

Good morning, how are you all this morning, it's Monday which means it's time for my weekly creation over at Creative Expressions Blog.  We have a new format over there now which means everything gets posted into one post a day, because of this they realised it now goes live too early for me to give my project on a Monday morning so I had to do it for Friday which I only found it not long before.  Because of this I have a very CAS card for you, now I have to admit I don't think I like it, but part of me does, I know it makes no sense.  As always I shall highlight the Creative Expressions products in the step by step:-)
I would like to enter the following challenges -
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Sisters of Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge - U is for Unique/Anything Goes
A Gem of a Challenge - Clean and Simple

This month we will be working with some gorgeous frames.






And now for the mega quick step by step lol ...........................

Take some Creative Expressions Coconut Card Stock and Distress Ink Pad
Bundled Sage and swipe the ink pad across the paper until it is completely covered.

Next mask off the frame part of the Creative Expressions Single Stamp
Curled Frame, ink the middle quote with Versafine black ink pad or
Archival and then take the masking off and stamp.

Stamp directly in the middle of a cut piece of card stock.

Cover the whole piece of the previous sage coloured card and spray
loads of Cosmic Shimmer Mist Pearl over it and leave it to dry.

Next ink the full frame stamp and emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Detail Black.

Cut out the wording and use an inkpad or black promarker to edge the frame.

Next work out your matt and layering.

Last but not least, use Cosmic Shimmer Water Colour Jade Mint to 
paint inside the swirls so they reflect in the light.  Add everything together
and add some Creative Expressions Pearl Gems in the bottom and top opposite
corners.

Right, better be off, hope you enjoyed my CAS card, apart from the occasional Christmas CAS card this will probably be it.  Mind you I do try, I have taken a class using stencils on cards for the simplicity look and hopefully I can make a few more.  They are great for quick cards and I really should stop buying them, I know guilty.  My time with Creative Expressions is almost finished and I have made a few cards this year so I am hoping I can still make a few more occasionally lol.
Happy Creating :-)
