Additions to CAS Card Set and a Tip


Here are some additional cards for my gift set (see previous post), and again clean and simple is the design. Copic coloring of Stampin' UP! sets "Fruit Stand" and "Sun Ripened" (both retired) and sentiments from Papertrey Ink.
And now for my Tip of the Day. For those little smudges of ink that find their way on a finished card, try erasing as much of the smudge as possible (I use Sanford Magic Rub), then giving it a light scuffing with a sanding block - sanding first in one direction, then the other. Or, if it's more than a smudge, try using the very tip of your craft knife to lightly scrape the offending blob and then smooth the surface with afore mentioned sanding block. This has worked for me numerous times and worth a try. Here's another idea. Where you suddenly have a mysterious black dot on your base card, add to the dot and make it a design feature (see example in pear card). I created a triangle of dot groups to disguise one little black dot that was annoying me. I used a Copic Black Multiliner. What do you think? I like the look.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.



  1. All of these are so pretty! I was playing with the flowers this morning. I don't remember the name either. I'd stamped several and just had to add the paint. Keep up the good work on your blog.

  2. Thanks for the tip--I hope I never have to use it ;) Love your dots!

  3. Thanks for your clever tips- I really needed to know these tricks!


Thank you for taking time to comment . . . it feeds my mojo!
