CAS Pool Party


Hello, I have a quick CAS card for you today using these adorable penguins from MFT.  I started off using this fun paper from Stampin Up and some Oxide Inks to get started.  What I love about this paper, as you can see, it has a pattern.  So as you blend the inks the cool pattern reveals itself. I used both Broken China and Tumbled Glass to achieve my pool color that I was looking for.  My photo doesn’t show the variations of color very well.  I decided to stamp the sentiment directly on the paper and it turned out better than I expected.  As I took a tissue over the sentiment after it dried, part of the sentiment came off too. I kinda think it looks as if the greeting is on the bottom of the pool. I used the white corners to mimic the steps or shelf seating you see around real swimming pools. I used Prisma colored pencils with my images.  My colors and idea for this card started with The Color Throwdown. 

I hope you can escape the world a little today by being creative, Nanc’

  1. Super cute and adorable pool card.

  2. It does look like the sentiment was written on the bottom of the pool, Nancy. That little penguin is happy just floating around.

  3. Before I read your post, I too, thought it looked like the sentiment was under water! I thought maybe you had stamped the circles on top – neat to think the paper was already embossed. Love your card!

    • Thanks so much Laurie! It’s the coolest paper and it comes in so many different patterns. I have no idea why they would stop making it, they only had it for a short time.
