Addicted to CAS Challenge #81


Hi everyone ~ It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our Hostess, Bhavana, has chosen the Code Word 'Bloom'! Our sponsor is Eureka Stamps, and the winner will receive three digi stamps from their store. Also, we have a lovely and super talented Guest Designer, Elena Voronina, who will be joining us this week!

Here is my first card: 


I used one of my new Winnie & Walter sets (In Bloom: Addie's Garden) for the flower, and a sentiment from SSS Watercolor Flowers stamp set. The flowers and leaves were colored with Copic markers, and I added just a few PTI Moonstones for a little sparkle. 

*****

Sometimes I feel badly that I don't 'play with' my favorite stamp sets as much as I should, so I created a 2nd card for this challenge:



For this card, I embossed the Labels 8 die into the corner, and stamped the flowers with white pigment ink. The white panel along the side is Linen, so it looks pretty IRL...lastly, I added a sentiment and a few sparkly sequins, and this card was completed :) 

Here is a close-up of the embossed details:

 

Kathy Racoosin is running another 30 Day Coloring Challenge, so I would like to also enter my first card there :)  


And, one of my new favorite companies is holding a Belated 2nd Birthday Bash...Winnie & Walter, so I am entering my first card into the Floral Challenge with Lydia, as well!



I hope you'll take a few minutes to check out the beautiful cards my team mates have created for the challenge, and play along with us this week at ATCAS ~ Have a great weekend,

Barb, such pretty bloom cards! I adore the colours on the first and the clean, freshness of the second. We're having a gusty blowing-snow day so your flowers are perfectly timed reminders that Spring isn't too far away...
