Addicted to CAS Challenge #67


Hi everyone,
Before I begin, I would just like to say Happy 4th of July to all who are celebrating today, and my belated Happy Birthday wishes to Canada!!! 
 
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS! Our Hostess is Jaydee and our sponsor is Create a Smile, who are offering the winner a GC for 12.50 euro (1 stamp set). We have a new Guest Designer for July...Kathy K. from the Purple Princess Diaries Blog!  Also, we have our new Designers joining us for the first time, so today is a very exciting day for all of us as we welcome them!

On to our challenge ~ The theme for this challenge is 'Patriotic' and I have created two cards:





We've had overcast skies for a few days, so I apologize for the poor quality on this photo. I cut the PTI dies with glitter paper, framed the white panel with red and blue cardstock, added the stamped sentiment and stars, and that was it...easy peasy!

_________________________________________


It's fun to sometimes use non-holiday images for holiday cards...Hence the motorcycle on my next card (Patriotic/4th of July):




 I couldn't wait to play with this new (to me) PTI die to created the road under the motor cycle and used red, white and blue again with a small pop of yellow for the lights. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn, and the stars from SSS. A touch of Wink of Stella for a little sparkle, and that was it!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ Have a great weekend,

Barb I love both cards but particularly the onw with the moped and the new PTI die. I have this die and am a bit stumped what to do with it. Look forward to seeing what you do next

Fantastic cards Barb and I'm thrilled to be on the ATCAS team with you.
Your first one is simply brilliant and certainly sparkles and shines - you might like to link up at Less is More as we are also down the red, white and blue route this week. Love the cute image on the second one too and so perfectly coloured. Sarah x

Joyce said...

These are both fantastic. I really like the way you used those die cuts as a road for your motorcycle. Great idea to put it at an angle--I want to try that next time.

Bonnie said...

Now this is the way to sparkle and shine, Barb! Fantastic! And I love the bright red, white and blue card! Fun!

Have wonderful week, sweetie!
