Welcome to the next day of the Sweet 'n Sassy release week celebration! Today we're showcasing the brand new Long Stem Silhouettes. I am a huge fan of silhouette images so I was super excited to receive this new set in the mail (and I've already found a million other uses for the wonderful sentiments!) I loved this set so much, I made two cards for the release! Yippee!! Be sure to check by the Sweet 'n Sassy blog to get all of the details on the releases and prizes!
For my first card, I decided to have a little fun with my Dylusions Ink Sprays. I wanted to create a bit of a sunset background without using my traditional Distress Ink and blending tool. I simply spritzed Squeezed Orange, Fresh Lime, and just a hint of Vibrant Turquoise onto a piece of cardstock, hit the ink with a heat gun to quickly dry, and stamped the image in black right on top of the ink. A sentiment was all that was needed to finish this CAS card. Love that bright lime color!
My second card features more of the images included in the set and I started by stamping the first image in white, the second in Walnut Stain, and the third in black. I love this color combo on kraft cardstock. I simply added a tiny butterfly (Martha Stewart punch) to finish the card. The card background? Well that's paper from the Echo Park Documented paper pad, and this was a card base I created months ago. I never finished the card and when I finished the main image of today's card I realized it fit perfectly on the base! Hey...never throw out that cardstock that never quite makes it into a card!
Enjoy today's hop!
