Today I have a card for the Addicted to CAS challenge where the key word is "Lucky". I love this challenge blog because you get to draw inspiration from just a word. Plus, your creations need to be clean and simple--my favorite :). You can scroll to the bottom for my process video as well as a list of the products I used. I also used a sketch from my "sketch library to get started. You can see more about how I use sketches in this blog post.

For my project, I was very product-oriented. I knew I wanted to use my Big Day stamp set from Waffle Flower. It has such nice, bold images, and I wanted my sentiment to really stand out. Green was a color I really wanted to use so I opted for my Hero Arts Ombre ink pad in Mint to Green to use with a stencil. The ink blends so beautifully and smooth!
I used a stencil from Crafter's Workshop called Gathered Flowers and did some light ink blending to create a soft background to highlight the sentiment. I heat embossed the sentiment onto one of My Favorite Things' Stitched Arch Stax. I liked this better than a full circle for some reason. I love it when something works on a card but you don't know why and just go with it. That's part of the fun! I added a panel of kraft colored paper to separate the stitched white panel from the card base. I liked the look of the brown with the green.
Here is a look at the inside of the card. Another sentiment from the Big Day stamp set.
I created a second version where I ink blended the sentiment arch, with green, but I do think I like the first one better.
Here is a video of my process--Enjoy!
