Leading Lady Jennifer Ingle | Take Two


Jennifer Ingle is back for her second week as Leading Lady and she is kicking derrieres and taking names!  If you haven't seen her first time as Leading Lady you will really want to CLICK HERE right now!  Now is the moment you've been waiting for...Jennifer is ready for her next performance (this one will produce chills)!

Welcome to Take 2 of my Leading Lady posts for Winnie & Walter! Today we are going CAS. SUPER CAS, actually. Super SCARY CAS, even. So, firstly, what is CAS? CAS is Clean and Simple. Yup. Does that mean the cards lack technique? Nope. Does it mean they only use one thing? Nope. It just means that the finished look is Clean and Simple in appearance. Honestly, some of my CAS cards have taken me longer than ones I've done with multiple layers, so it doesn't necessarily mean EASY, either! LOL! Today I have four cards to share with you featuring the super awesome Moonlight stamp set. I loved it so much I wanted to dedicate an entire post to it. For reals, you guys. For. Reals.
And Be Scary
Okay, so, I am starting with my favorite of the group. LOL! Is that allowed? I do hope so! This one is SUPER CAS and super simple, too. I love how this sentiment stamp stands out SO brilliantly, so I let it take center stage on a white panel and accented it only with the small mask stamp, which I coated with my Wink of Stella black for a bit of shimmer. The panel is popped up on a white card base, keeping the design simple, but adding some interest and depth, as well.
Hat and Bat Halloween
For this card I layered my images just *slightly* to bring them together. I colored the hat and then colored the sentiment in an ombre style. I love how the words look! The spider is just sorta hanging out. That is fun. Lotsa fun. For reals, though.
Pumpkin Treats
CAS doesn't mean leaving out the embellishments, either! For this card, I used a small bit of cork to accent the top, along with some sequins. A favorite trick of mine is to cut a sequin in half and use the partial on the edge of an accent or the card. You can see my half sequin on the cork strip. It adds a bit of shine along with the texture!
Frightful & Delightful
And my final card shows how the corner of a card can most definitely be your focal point! I added the spider web, letting it go off the edges a bit and then stamped the spider. A few sequins 'caught' in the web certainly are a bit prettier than flies! HA! I wanted the sentiment to both stand out and ground the design, so I stamped and embossed it on a strip of black cardstock and adhered it with foam tape.
AND... don't forget to leave a comment on my blog, Just Jingle, for your chance to win a $30 Gift Card to Winnie & Walter! I will choose a winner from the comments on ALL FOUR of my Leading Lady posts at the end of the month! YAY!!! So fun!

Have a Happy!
