CAS Male Card

Sorry I haven't blogged recently, or visited many of your blogs. I've been making plenty of cards lately, but seem to have had no time to blog anything! Hopefully, I can get this rectified yet again very soon!

So, I have a new obsession (like I need another one!!!!!!)......Clearly Besotted Stamps. They seem to have lots of stamp sets that I need like the Twinkle Toes ballerina set - perfect for the dance mad children I know......Going Places vehicle set - perfect for the little boys I know.....Dino-mite dinosaurs, Butterfly Wishes Additions and I've just ordered the Stepping Out and Just for You sets for a few orders and personal birthday cards I need to make! The quality of these stamps is excellent and the service superb. I highly recommend them!

Anyway, best get on talking about the card, huh!?! This one uses one of the Going Places stamps. I've added a tiny bit of shading with my promarkers and some Platinum Stickles. I am definitely in a bit of a Clean and Simple phase, hence the style of this card. The sentiment is from the Going Places set. The blue paper is from my stash and has had a few "clouds" stamped and shaded - these are actually thought bubbles from a Studio G set, which I think I bought from Michaels in Florida for $1. A little bit of twine, some piercing and a sewn on button complete my simple card.

  5. A fabulous card the plane!

    CAS style of cardmaking is something I love and admire but I just can't get to grips with making a card without a stamped and coloured image.

    Big hugs

  6. Great masculine card! I love how you have the airplane flying off the top of the clouds and the sentiment block and twine look great! What a great idea to use the thought bubbles for clouds. They look awesome! Thanks for playing at ATCAS this week. :)
