CAS370 Circle Floral Wishes


Howdy!  This week's CAS challenge is to use circles on your clean and simple card.  For this CAS370 challenge, I decided to sponge some colored circles in a triangular shape and then I adhered this gorgeous floral die cut over the colored circles.  I used my MISTI tool to make sure I stamped the sentiment without messing it up.  LOL!

Come play along with us and share your clean and simple cards with circles on them.  Be sure to use keyword CAS370 when you upload your card so we can see what you created.  :-)

Happy Easter!



Happy Good Friday, everyone!  I wanted to share this card with you today before you head off to hide the Easter eggs and work on your Easter dinner and enjoy time with your families on Sunday.  I've had this adorable stamp for ages, and it's so much fun to color.  I simply colored the letters with pastel Copic markers and cut it out with a stitched rectangle die.  It is adhered to a white card base with some foam tape.

Have a wonderful and relaxing Easter with your family and friends.  Happy Easter!!

CAS369 Green Hexies



Hi everyone!  Time got away from me this week, but I wanted to share this week's CAS challenge card with you.  The CAS369 challenge is to make a clean and simple card with a St. Patrick's Day theme, or you can use greens or go with a lucky theme.  I decided to go with greens and I played around with several different green inks before coming up with this card.

I really wanted to play with my new hexagon stamps and matching punch, so I stamped several different patterns in Garden Green, Wasabi, and Pistachio inks.  The background was stamped with Wasabi ink that was brayered onto the scratchy grid stamp, and I stamped the ink blobs with Garden Green ink.  The sentiment was stamped with Garden Green ink and then I adhered the punched hexagons.  I love how this fun card turned out!

I used these stamp sets from Stampin Up:

Six Sided Sampler (hexagons)
You've Got This (scratchy grid background stamp)
Perpetual Birthday Calendar (ink blobs)

If you'd like to play along with us in this challenge, share your card and use CAS369 as the keyword over on SCS.  We'd love to see what you create!
