Hop and leave some love at each stop for your chance to win!
You should have arrived here from Jen Carter's Blog! Here's how I was inspired:
I decided to pull out the Full on Floral background stamp for today because it's so pretty and I thought it would be perfect in these beautiful colors from the Party Collection Carnivale Mini Ink Pads. I used the Misti and applied the Limoncello ink first and inked up the bottom right corner of the stamp and stamped onto a panel of white cardstock. When I do this I like to apply the ink with a sponge to avoid lines and get a better blend. It will take me a couple applications which is why I use the Misti. I cleaned off my stamp in between colors and followed with Coral Cabana and Be Mine.
Then I left the stamp on the Misti and covered it with some Wow Embossing Ink and stamped over the inked background. I added some Wow Changers Sparkle and heated it up. It added a really pretty sparkle to all of the beautiful color.
I stamped, cut and colored that sweet bunny from the Somebunny stamp set and then diecut the Sweet from the Sweet Friend die set three times from white cardstock. I added more of the same colors of ink again using a sponge to one of the word diecuts and then heat embossed it with the Sheen from the Changers kit and then again using some clear powder. I stacked my three word diecuts together and then popped the bunny and "sweet" onto my base. I stamped a sentiment from the Be A Unicorn set and cut out the top and bottom parts to arrange around the Sweet to build my sentiment.
I added a few sequins and this one was done!
I've been using these inks lately ... I just love the beautiful and rich colors and the pads are nice and juicy! Here's a couple more projects I made recently using CAS-Fridays products along with these inks:
If you come here often, you know how I love my coffee cards! That background was made using the By The Beans stencil and CP inks topped with a little translucent texture paste and some "texture" Wow Changers. If you'd like more details you can visit this post here!
And oh look! More Coffee....lol... and you can find this one here if you'd like more details.
