Addicted to CAS - Challenge #70





Hi everyone ~ It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Linda Beeson, and our Sponsor is Stamplorations, who will be giving a $10.00 voucher to the store for the winner. As the hostess for this challenge, I have chosen the code word 'School'...you can interpret it as Back to School, create a teacher card, a graduation card, or notecards for a child's lunch box, if you like!

For this challenge, I created a card, a tag and a gift box:




I die cut the word teacher, but it's difficult to see...here is a close-up:


I created a tag with PTI's Enclosed Apple Die, and the box from WRMK Gift Box Punch Board:



 And, here is the whole gift set:





 For the tag, I used Brushos on water color cardstock in two shades of red and dabbed a bit of yellow to give it a more realistic look. For the card, I used a technique that I first learned from JJ Bolton in This Post. I created the faux ribbon with thin strips of cardstock, since I don't have that cool new die yet from Pretty Pink Posh :) I also added the black dots to the white cardstock on the box using a stamp from the Ellen Hutson Bokeh set and a stencil. The bow is from La Pareja Creativa...I love it because it's so dainty!

I hope you'll find some time to play along with us! For more inspiration, stop over at the ATCAS Blog to see the creations from the rest of the team ~ Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

What a sweet gift ensemble - and as a teacher, I can tell you that it will be absolutely adored by the teacher receiving it! Love those apples! Oh, and the camo 'teacher'...and the gift box! With my niece starting kindergarten in September (she's growing up way too fast!) I have 'school-themed' things on my mind...may need to add to my supplies though! Thanks for the inspiration!
Hugs~c
