ATSM CHALLENGE - CAS



Hello there, Blog Friends! It's Team A's turn this week at Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge! Our theme for this week is CAS! Here is my first card:

    

For my card, I used all Simon Says Stamp exclusive stamps and dies. The outline of the tree is die cut with white woodgrain cardstock, and the leaves were colored with Copic markers. In the spirit of the fall season, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and used Copper Embossing Powder. I also added a touch of Wink of Stella clear glitter marker to the small solid white leaves to make them sparkly.

And, here is my 2nd card:


For this card, I used my new Mama Elephant stamps and dies from the Carnival Cupcakes and Carnival Toppers sets. I colored the cupcake with Copics, and mounted the die cuts on to an embossed panel. A bit of thread and a few sparkly sequins, and that was it! 

Our sponsor for this week's challenge is QKR Stampede and the winner will receive 3 free digi stamps of their choice!



I hope you'll be able to find time to stop by and check out all of the amazing projects my Teamies have created for this challenge and play along!

My first card also qualifies for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge, so I would like to enter it there, as well. Barb Engler is our Hostess for the challenges, and she has come up with some great ideas to get your mojo going! Here is the inspiration photo for this challenge:


This is my 2nd entry, and once again I chose the top left to bottom right diagonal:
- Die Cut
- Autumn
- Glitter


Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful day ~
Barb
