All White Except a Stamped Image!
My Time to Craft's challenge this week is to make an all white card except for the image. This idea really appealed to me so I cut many layers with my CTMH Artiste cricut cartridge. I used the Card function from page 63 to cut the flourished square at 2", 2.5", 3.0" and the negative piece that was cut at 3.5". The featured stamp is from the new Casual Expressions Occasions set--a very versatile set! (Most of the stamps in this set have a corresponding cricut Artiste cut.) I first put my stamp in Versamark ink and then into Crystal Blue ink and then sprinkled clear embossing powder and heat set to give it a shiny appearance. I also used a stylus to score the paper at 1/2" and 5/8" from each edge. The top two layers are popped up with 3D mounting tape. This is my first time entering this challenge and using the new Artiste cartridge made it so easy and fun to do!
