Holiday Time Tutorial

 Hello and welcome to our second annual Holiday Time Tutorial session.
Here at Fab'n'Funky Challenges we are taking our summer holiday but that doesn't mean we aren't here for you.
That's why we have tutorial time

This post will be here for two weeks.

Last year we went through the "masking" technique. This time we are going CAS. for those of you new to card-making CAS stands for Clean And Simple.  
Some purist might say it also has to be one layer, it definitely doesn’t. It just has to have a lot of unused space.
So lets begin:
You will need:-
Stamping blocks, stamps/sentiment, Ink-pads, Markers, card-blank, A4 white card, scissors, double-sided tape/foam-pads/glue, blending pads, stencil, and a HUGE sense of fun
Don’t worry if you don’t have a shop-bought stencil
 Here I show you a range of stencil, the top left I bought, the top right was free on a magazine, but my absolute favourite is the bottom stencil which I made myself. You can probably tell that it is well used and loved.
The first thing we will do is use our stencil
Use your low tack tape to hold it in place and prevent ink getting onto the card where it isn't wanted.

Ink up your sponge/dauber/foam and gently rub over your stencil.

You should have something that looks a bit like this. Now before you remove your stencil we will add our sentiment in the same colour ink.
You could just use a black ink for the sentiment, but I like to colour coordinate.
Believe it or not you could just stop there. Or add a few gems
So that could be card one
But I said we would do the topper card, so let's go...

So now that we have our card base, we are going to stamp our topper (the decoration that will sit on top of the card)

Now colour in your stamped image. I am using ProMarkers, but you can use whatever you have. Pencil crayons are great for beginners or young children.
Then cut them out (daughter doing a little hand modelling here)
If you have sticky foam-pads the stick them to the back of the cut-outs, if you do not have foam-pads then double-sided tape or glue will do.
Find your ideal spot on your card and stick down your toppers.
Hey presto a lovely CAS card, with or without toppers.
Here’s a little secret, the card itself does not have to be white, just lots of plain open space.
Here are a couple of examples from our lovely design team


We look forward to seeing what you have created
Most important ingredient is have fun
