The  last Hope You can Count on Challenge last month was hosted by Lydia. She challenged us to disguise our style. For me that meant creating a one layer CAS card….because those are the hardest for me to make. I combined it with Monday’s CAS challenge, which was a color challenge: Chocolate, Ivory and Red.

I embossed the card front of my 4 1/4″ x 11″  Neenah Solar White cardstock card base with Stampin’ Up!’s Framed Tulip Embossing Folder. An image from Unity’s Confessions:  I Luv Unity stamp set was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink once in directly on the card, once on MME Lime & Twist Life is a Party Patterned Paper. The flower stems on the card base were colored with Copic Markers G21 and G24. The flower heads on the patterned paper were colored with R08, R27, R39, cut out and adhered to the card base.

A reverse mask was cut for the card and the center was airbrushed with Copic Marker E31. A sentiment from I Love Unity was inked first with Antique Linen Distress ink, then the word unity was inked again with Rich Cocoa Memento ink before it was stamped at the bottom of the flower image.

Want2Scrap Rhinestones and parts of a Finesse Swirl were used to finish off the card. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

  1. Beate, I visit your blog on a daily basis and always admire your gorgeous creations! Your card today is very different to what you usually create but it is stunning in it’s simplicity. You never fail to provide me with inspiration to the extent that I have been known to go on a little spending spree after visiting you, even although I have previously promised myself “no more purchases until I use what I have!”
    Best wishes
