CAS + Blue at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is CAS + Blue.

The teacup elements were made with a Heartfelt Creations die/stamp set. The set was given to me by a friend who has since passed away, so I always think of our good times together when I use it. Also, her favorite color was blue!

I had embossed this card base some time ago, but never used it. I die-cut the aperture and decorated the inside. Everything is inked with Blueprint Sketch distress ink. The sentiment on the inside is a rubber stamp by Repeat Impressions.

I was inspired by the challenge at A Place To Start to make a matching envelope:
A Place To Start: (1st Mon) Single Layer Card with Matching Envelope
STAMPlorations Challenge Blog: (1st Friday, winners P10) Stamps + Coffee/Tea
2 Sisters On The Blog #25: (P1) CAS

Update: I was the winner at A Place To Start!

Thank you for visiting! Hope you'll join us at International Art & Soul,
