I am so excited about this! After winning challenge 127 in CASology, I was asked to guest design for their challenge 129. I am truly honored (and in shock!! :D). Couldn’t ask for a better start of the year!! Wow!
The CASology challenge this time is NBUS (Never Been Used Stuff) which means we will be trying to use things from our craft supplies that have never been used. And CASology is joining Darnell Knauss for her NBUS challenge on her blog.
For the first card I first adhered a piece of color paper and adhered it directly on a card panel using double sided tape. I then die cut this using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics die. I then centered the Medallion die in the upper portion and die cut it.
I then stamped the sentiment in Hero Arts white pigment ink using the stamp from Avery Elle Petals and Stems stamp set. And then I foam mounted the panel on the card base. I also adhered a clear rhinestone in the center of the medallion die cut for embellishment.
For the second card, I die cut the medallion from a darker piece of color paper (this was also thicker than the previous one, but still thinner than a card stock).
After adhering this directly to the card base, I traced the design on the medallion using Glossy Accents and added a pearl in the center. I then stamped the same sentiment in Memento Grape Jelly ink.
Those are my two cards! Though I have submitted only one for the NBUS Challenge, I would certainly like to know which version you liked better!
Thanks for looking! 🙂
