Craft Dash CAS(E) Favourite

Lawn Fawn Stayed Tuned, Home Sweet Gnome

The front of this card took 6 minutes 52 seconds. This is in part due to the CAS(E) sketch I followed. Having a sketch to work with is such a great way to focus and speed up the creative process, you have an idea where you're going from the start. Then Paulina's colour palette help me have all the correct colour supplies ready. I had every thing laid out: my dies, ink pads, stamps on blocks, patterned paper pad, washi tapes, Stickles, Promarkers and guillotine. I used a count down because if I had any time left I wanted to stamp the inside with a custom sentiment to make sense of the bee. For the inside, I lined up my letters one by one with the bee and its trail, inked in blue and brown stamped and got to colouring. Then I realised I had forgotten to stamp the second Z. The buzzer sounded just as I lifted my block from the upside down Z I'd stamped in my haste. So 10 minutes inside and out!

Lawn Fawn Smitty's ABCs, Home Sweet Gnome

I like the higgledy-piggledy look of this sentiment as if it is buzzing! No time for glitter inside or corner rounding, but that's the nature of the challenge. I can't believe how excited I felt to have finished inside and out as the buzzer sounded. Even though I was slapping my letters together haphazardly, Smitty's ABCs by Lawn Fawn still managed to stay relatively straight. I normally line my letter stamps up so carefully and I just love how Lawn Fawn design their alphabet stamps: perfectly spaced with multiple common letters (Well, how many times will you be under time pressure and need two Zs??)
