Addicted to CAS Challenge - "Harvest"


Hi there,
It's time for another fun challenge at Addicted to CAS! Our hostess is Ksenija, and she has chosen the Code Word 'Harvest'. As always, we have a very talented Guest Designer ~ Wendy Johnson, who created a really cute card to inspire everyone!

I couldn't wait to play with my 2nd stamp and die set created by my awesome blog friend, Kay Miller, so I used it on my first card:


My first ever fox stamp, and I think he's adorable! I also love the spray of leaves and beautiful blooms Kay added to this set ~ Lots of fun to play with, and I'm looking forward to using different color palettes, just like Kay did when she introduced 'Stylized Autumn' in This Post!

A few weeks ago, I bought another harvest/autumn stamp set from MFT, and created this card:



I used my favorite (Peerless) watercolors for the background, and spritzed some Perfect Pearls mixed with water to add texture. I used Copics and Prismacolor pencils to color the images, and a Mama Elephant stitched banner for the sentiment...and, that was it! 

We would love for you to join us and submit a card for a chance to win a $12.00 gift card from A Day for Daisies!


As always, thank you so much for stopping by, and for leaving sweet comments...I appreciate it very much :)

I keep forgetting about 'spritzing' Perfect Pearls, it always looks so fantastic. Love that fabulous fox too, he is lucky to be in your wonderful creative hands!

Oh Barb you made the little fox shine! What a sweet card! I love how you tucked all the greenery and flowers around him, and I love the colors you used! Thank you my friend for the kind words and links in your blog post! I appreciate it so much! I can't wait to see what else you do! I would comment on your other card, but I can't get the picture to load. I know it's fabulous though! Enjoy your Labor day weekend!

These cards are both too adorable. Love how you used that little fox. He is somewhere on my desk, hiding right now. And, your coloring on your second card is simply perfect.

Your autumn card just adorable Barb! I love Key's new set but they have not even been opened yet! I love the colour of your fox! That MFT set is another amazing set. Those mice are so cute and your card is coloured beautifully!

That little harvesting mouse is adorable, Barb ... the colouring is perfect and I love the touch of texture in the stitched edges and PP splatter! Oh my, that sweet fox hiding among the leafy blooms ... he's so cute ... and there's a sweet touch of whimsy around him in the wonky stitched border ... fabulous! Hugs, Anita :)
