Addicted to CAS Challenge #72


Hello there crafty friends ~ It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and as you can see, our code word is 'Leaves'! For the month of September, our Guest Designer is Dawn of Designs by Dragonfly. Also, our sweet and talented Doni is the hostess for this challenge, and our sponsor is Create a Smile, who is offering 12.50 euro (one stamp set) to the winner!


For this challenge, I created a card and a gift box for some homemade chocolates:


Here is a close-up of the card:


I love the rich, vibrant colors of Brushos, so I created a panel with fall colors on a piece of water color cardstock, and die cut the stitched leaves to create the wreath. The house and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn's Home Sweet Home stamp and die set, and the leaves are from their original Stitched Leaves dies.

Here is a close-up of the gift box:


With a leftover piece of water colored cardstock I die cut the twine with the newest Twine and Bows die from Pretty Pink Posh.

So, that's it for me...I hope you'll take some time check out the Addicted to CAS Blog to see what my teamies have created, and that you'll be inspired to play along! Thanks so much for stopping by ~ Have a great weekend,

Love the intensity of colour that you get with brushos, Barb - perfect for these autumnal leaves! Using them to decorate the gift box is a great idea too :)

Doni High said...

I've never tried Brushos, but they sure do make your stitched leaves look terrific! I even think the design on the gift box would make a cute card also. :)

You should know, Barb, that when I drove 7 hours last November to play cards with Tracy McNeely, I came home with a 'tree's worth' of these leaves ... down to the last few. Guess what? I bought my own yesterday!!! I'm calling it an early birthday gift to me =] Your gift box and card warm my Fall-loving heart! So beautifully water-colored, and arranged...

I didn't know you had Brushos, Barb. I've been thinking about them but have resisted so far. I love how all the colors came together to make your glorious leaves.
