OWH and Clear it Out Tuesday Challenges

The challenge this week at Operation Write Home is "Love You" and at Clear it Out Tuesday it is Clean and Simple. CAS is my favorite kind of card- with a twist- something new or fun added in. There are two new things on this card that I learned about at the recent stamp show in Wausau. The first is the beautiful laser cut sticker by Mrs Grossman's. So easy to use and very classy looking. The second is a new way to use our border punches! Punch out the border punch (or any shaped punch) on a piece of scrap paper. I used a portion of a Martha Stewart border punch. Attach it to your cardstock with temporary tape on all sides. Using Pearl Pen or Liquid Pearls and a stencil knife, swipe a little of the colored pearl into the holes of the punched paper. Take punched scrap paper off and discard. Allow to dry and you have a lovely accent for any card.

Of course the background is just a cuttlebug embossed card. CAS but lovely, I think.

Stampings smiles, Karen

Hi Karen! This is wonderful. I was up North this past weekend. Went through Wausau. How do you find these classes? Are there any more coming up in WI? I would love to go. It is just to long to the Madison Mingle.
Beautiful card.
