~ Happiest of Birthdays ~

It's been a while since I've played along with the CASology cue cards. This weeks cue card is Icing! I was playing with a design for some birthday cards so I thought this was a perfect chance to make it fit for this challenge.

I finally got inky with the Distress Oxide inks!! Just a simple blending on some kraft, but I think it's really nice along with the white embossed cupcakes. A beautifully simple one layer CAS card!! One tip though if you decide to give this a try... after blending I patted the area with my embossing buddy. Don't rub! The ink will rub off on your embossing buddy. Just pat it on the area. Then I was able to stamp with VersaMark and add the white embossing powder without it sticking everywhere.

Here are the products I used for this card:
Card Stock: Kraft (PTI)
Inks: VersaMark (SSS)
Distress Oxide Inks: Cracked Pistachio, Broken China (SSS)

Go check out the challenge over at CASology... there's still some time to play along!!
Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.

  1. Very nice Crystal. I really like the colors you chose against the craft paper.

  2. Crystal, well done with the distress oxide pretty! Love them on kraft with the white embossing. I also love the cute cupcakes and that sentiment...may need to get that stamp set! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology!

  3. Wow those inks blend gorgeously over the kraft, Crystal! Love that ombre and the dimension from the Nuvo drops. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
