Anything Goes for Kids at SAS4Kids!
It's time for another new challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids and this time Anything Goes! Any card appropriate for a child can be entered in this challenge for a chance to win some great prizes from our sponsors and/or be picked for our Top Three! Both of our generous sponsors for this challenge are offering you the chance to win 3 digital stamps of your choice in our random drawings! Our sponsors are: Wee Stamps and Karen's Doodles. Please click on their names to visit their websites and check out their wonderful stamps!
My first card features a sweet stamp from Wee Stamps called Sam's Special Delivery. I decided to use a CAS technique on this card rather than try to color or paper piece him. I stamped him on a subtle designer paper, cut it apart in blocks and used direct to paper with lightly colored inks before putting it back together on a black card. I added some tiny butterflies and gems and a sentiment from TAC to complete the card.
Cannonball is a great stamp from Karen's Doodles. I started this card by cutting out a large circle card with my Grand Calibur and large circle dies from Spellbinders. I stamped the Cannonball stamp on a white and aqua blue circle. I paper pieced the waves in the same aqua blue and paper pieced his suit too. I raised each layer with mounting tape as I attached and added a bunch of wavy and bubble stickers. The sentiment is from Raisin Boat.
I am entering these cards in the challenges at Ladybug Crafts Ink for non-square cards and at Simon Says Stamp for CAS cards.
