STAMPlorations is the sponsor for this week's
As is often the case, when I receive new stamps in the mail I head right for paper and ink pad. Someday I will learn to check the challenge theme before making anything. Fortunately, the card I made fits perfectly with this week's Anything Goes theme!
There are also dies available for both the flowers and words.
I was checking out the STAMPlorations Blog and they just happen to have a CAS Challenge going for the month of May. Generally, I shy away from CAS challenges. I tend to get messy which requires adding layers and/or bling to disguise the little flaws. If my friend, Carol, to whom I sent the card above, dissects it, the truth will out! Because I had stamped a few extra flowers, perfect for masking, and was feeling brave, I tried a CAS card.
The hardest part was the "hello". The stamp actually says "hello sunshine".
I covered the sunshine part with tape before inking, then had to quickly remove the tape and stamp the card before the ink on the stamp dried. That's not easy when the ceiling fan is on high!
