This post is to share my ingredients and
recipe for a cheery HELLO.


~~~*~~~*~~~

There is so much amazing detail in the Autumn Points stamp that I made another couple of CAS cards.  This time I rotated the stamp from portrait to landscape and added a die cut sentiment.

I placed the stamp in my MISTI (foam layer removed) and printed it twice on a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" smooth white cardstock panel using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
For the first card I cut a matting panel 4 1/4" x 5 3/8" and inked the edges with the black ink.
I cut a card base 5" x 6 1/8" to allow for an even border around the matted image panel and adhered all the layers together using liquid adhesive.
Next came the sentiment.  I die cut the "hello" sentiment twice, inking one with the same ink used to stamp the image and layered it on top of a plain white "hello".  I popped the sentiment panel with foam dots and I soon had a second cheery, CAS, SUPER FAST card.

Given how lovely the black ink and clear heat embossing looked on my earlier card, I decided to make another card, this time with a glossy shine.

I stamped the image on a 4" x 5 1/4" of smooth white cardstock, allowed the ink to dry, dusted the image panel liberally with my powder tool, stamped again with Versamark ink, smothered with clear embossing powder then heat set for an even bolder black and a luscious glossy finish.

I cut a matting panel (1/8" larger than on the first card), inked the outer edges with the same black ink, allowed to dry, inked with Versamark ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 

I die cut another two "hello" sentiments, inking one with the same ink used to stamp the image, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and layered it on top of a plain white "hello".  I popped the sentiment panel with foam dots and I soon had a second cheery, CAS, SUPER FAST card, this time with a bolder, shiny black finish.
