It's RELEASE DAY!!! I hope you have enjoyed the sneak peeks we had this week, I certainly had a blast playing with all the new stuff and have Many more projects left to show and stamp. Today I have some simple CAS style cards to show you. One of the things I love about Elzybells is the sentiments, Elizabeth has a great way with words and I love the fonts she uses as well. Whether it is a sentiment set, single or the sentiments included in image sets, I get So much use out of these stamps.
Continuing with my Porcelain Paper and Verve sketch theme this week I did a simple Thank You card using a new sentiment, I omitted Just the word Thanks and it fit perfectly in the punched circle along with the flower from Best Things. The sketch had a twist of *White Space* (kind of difficult for me not to cover up all that white paper, but I liked it in the end.)
For the second card I used a Fabriano Mediovalis card and some left ove strips of Porcelain paper. The sentiment is Wonderful, I really LOVE the new Best Things sentiment set! I simply punched the paper with the Embossed Zig Zag punch, added a Hand Crocheted flower (Coming soon to HSE!) and a Build-a-Brad with another scrap of Porcelain paper inside.
This card ended up being Perfect for the new Scribble This Challenge on Lisa's blog, I used the Unsharp Mask on my Photoshop and I think you can Really see a diffference on this card, it didn't make the edges funky, but it really brought out the dots and the edges of the zig zag, as well as the individual threads in the flower...
Here is the original photo....
