CAS Set on Kraft

Tomorrow evening there is a Baby Shower at my church and I am in charge of the game and the prizes for it.  So this afternoon I got busy stamping away and created 2 sets of 6 cards to bundle up as the prizes.  Hopefully those who win them will appreciate them more than a kitchen towel or a candle!  I decided to make the whole set on Kraft and to keep them pretty clean.  

Here they are...This one uses Asian Fusin, BasicGrey Koishi paper, Dark Chocolate Ink, and Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I used Delightful Dahlia and Damask Designs along with more Koishi paper, Button Twine, Dark Chocolate Ink, Dusty Concord and Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

Lots of masking on this one!  The stamps are Year of Flowers: Violets and all the ink is Distress Ink...Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, & Spiced Marmalade.  (Maybe everyone else has figured this out, but I didn't until last week, so here's my tip for you...after you cut out an image to use as a mask, save it in a ziploc bag instead of throwing it away.  Then next time you need a mask for that image, you can just pull it out and go!  Like I said, maybe I'm the last one to figure this little time saver out, but I had to share!)

Here I used Polka Dot Basics 2 and Scattered Showers.  The Ink is Hawaiian Shores, Berry Sorbet, and Dark Chocolate.  The paper that the umbrella is on is also from the Koishi Pad.

I used Fancy Flourishes, Year of Flowers: Violets, and Signature Greetings on this card.  The ink is Raspberry Fizz and True Black and the paper that the flower is on is Raspberry Fizz.  Oh, and the flower is there because I didn't get a clean image with the flourish so I had to cover it up!! Oops!

This is the last one in the set.  I used Butterfly Kisses and Signature Greetings.  Ink is Pure Poppy, Ocean Tides, and Dark Chocolate along with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.  Also added some Rhinestones on this one.

We are enjoying some gorgeous weather here today!  I took a break from crafting for a bit to go for a walk and have a Root Beer Float on the front deck with my husband.  Thanks for stopping by!
