Marbled Hugs!

Published by at 7:19 pm under About,Stampin' Up! Projects,Tex's Tips

This is one of those unusual times when I’m glad to admit that “I was tempted!”   What I mean is that I was tempted to join in the CAS Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  

The CAS469 challenge was to use a background stamp as the basis for a clean ‘n simple (CAS) card … certainly easy enough, and it’s literally been ages since I’ve inked up a full-sized background stamp.   How about you?

Another admission:  I rarely make one-layer cards unless timing requires it, or other special circumstances.  Truthfully, this just has the background stamped on Whisper White card stock, layered atop a mat of Basic Black, then applied to the jazzy Lemon Lime Twist card base.  The horizontal layout allows space for the single strip of Black ‘n White ribbon from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  

Tex’s Tip:  Alignment of the ‘hugs’ die from the Lovely Words framelits is easiest by first die cutting the solid circle (Layering Circles framelits).  Then, set the word die within the cut-out circle, eyeing the margins around the edges.  Washi tape to my rescue here!  *Setting dies in position before cutting is my favored time for using washi tape.  

Happy new week, m’friends!

Inky (((hugs))),
