CAS Challenge #14

I just love the fresh look of Clean And Simple cards. I made this for today's CAS challenge at splitcoaststampers:

There is also a CAS DT (Design Team) call which you will find on the above link. Check it out. I submitted my three cards for the call along with other very talented ladies. We will see what happens.......

The challenge is to use the Rock n Roll technique (also a link to the tutorial provided in the above link). So, I decided to ink up this cute deer, I immediately thought of a green grassy hill with flowers for him to run, eat and be happy. This card did not materialize without its problems, uh I mean challenges.

First I stamped the (sweet little) deer directly onto the card and he only partially came out. ARGH!!! (should have heard the names I called him after that, no JK hee hee hee). So I cut out my sample (that I tried first before making the card) and popped him up on top of the OOPS. I had to emboss him because he just was not coming out strong enough for me. Heat embossing made him pop.

Then the sentiment (cute little thing) after 20 or 30 or 50 or 100 tries (no just about 30) just would not stamp nice and clean. (Should have heard the name I called it after that! JK again) So I decided to go to my trusty computer and just print one out. Whew. That worked.

Lemonade from lemons! Hope you find inspiration here.

Hi Lisa! This is adorable! I love how you really made him pop with the embossing and also paper piecing him! Great CAS card! I love CAS... I just don't do it well... for some reason mine always looks lacking. Good luck with the DT!!! Thanks also for letting me know about my card... I hadn't even thought to look! LOL! I've been so busy with Church business today I haven't had time to think about anything. I most probably would never have know so thank you! Hugs,Grace
