hello sunshine


Hello, friends! I was going to title this post "Cut, Spatter, and Tape". I'm entering
CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use paper punches or dies on your card.


I used Papertrey Ink's lower case alpha dies and decided to focus on the negative portion for the card. I did have to save the little pieces inside of the "e" and "o", and adhered them with THE smallest pieces of dimensional tape.


I scribbled the word "sunshine" and stamped over with a very old spatter stamp in two different colors. It looked a little blah, so I added some strips of washi tape. I think I went overboard again. I should have left it plain. Not so CAS, is it?

I'm also entering it in Moxie Fab World's Spatter (Splatter?) Technique Challenge even though I feel like I "cheated" with the spattering.



And have you seen the Washi Workshop sponsored by Studio Calico? It looks like a fun one! I'm looking forward to learning more wonderful ways to use this amazing product--besides just stickin' it on a card.






Lastly, over the weekend we jetted to Kauai for a family wedding and I wanted to share a shot of the wedding cake. Totally gorgeous and it was absolutely delish. A great inspiration photo, no?



Have a wonderful, crafty week! Thanks for stopping by.
