My Guest DT Spot!


Happy Monday!

Blink and you may just miss it, but it's my lil' moment of fame as a Guest DT for the CAS Design Team over at Splitcoast Stampers! I can't tell you how excited I am and how honoured I feel to have been asked by Jen - thanks so much, Jen!

So for the CAS Challenge today (they're issued every Monday here) we have a St Patrick's Theme goin' down! All creations must feature any shade of White/Cream, Green and Brown. Creations can be for any occasion so don't feel restricted to St Patrick's Day cards! Pretty open scope eh?! Why not play along too?!

Well with this brief in mind, I couldn't resist inking up my new Studio Style set:

I dunno if you can tell, but I covered my jars in Glossy Accents to make them glass-like. It looks much cooler IRL, and my photography doesn't do a good job catching it so I'll just have to hope you can imagine it LOL! (Check out the jar on the far left to get a basic idea!)

I'll confess that my lack of patience made this the card that's taken me the longest to make, EVER! I just couldn't wait for those darn Glossy Accents to dry; I bodged up 3 button jars, I kid you not! I even resorted to putting them in the fridge!!! Well I guess the saying goes, patience is a virtue...maybe I should learn from it!

Card Recipe
All PTI Supplies
Stamps: Studio Style
Ink: Dark Chocolate
Card: White
Accessories: Glossy Accents/Promarkers/Dark Chocolate Twill

Ooh now I'm thinking I could do this layout in a number of different colour combos - how fun would Raspberry Fizz buttons look against Aqua Mist buttons?! The possibilities are endless!

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share my little piece of fun news with y'all, I really appreciate it!

I promise to be back soon - actually got a backlog of cards to post up here! Also hoping to be popping in on your wonderful blogs and checking out what you've all been up to, it's been far too long!

Catch ya later!

Congratulations Aimes! It's fabulous. Talk about patience, coloring all those itty-bitty buttons must have taken a ton! Great job!!

lol at you putting them in the fridge Aimes, you must have been getting pretty desperate by then!! All's well that ends well though and those buttons look really good in earth tones!

I made a CAS card with this set the other week, I think you'll like it when you get a chance to catch up!

Congrats, on your guest spot Aimes. I'm sure there are many more such honors in your future. I was looking at the photo before reading the process and thought wow, those jars of buttons look so real. The Glossy Accents was a great idea, even if using it tried your patience. The final result is one fabbo card!

You truly deserve all the limelight you can get girly! You are a bucket o' talent! This card is so fun...I love how you made the jars look like jars with glossy accents, even if you don't have the patience to let it dry lol

Daniela F. said...

Congrats again on your Guest DT spot! I love how you cut the ribbon to accentuate the sentiment. The Glossy Accents gives so much dimension to the jars and I bet it even looks better in reality compared to the photo. Fabulous card!!
