Addicted to CAS Card Challenge

Hello crafty friends! Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS  ~ Vicki is our Hostess, and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Triangles’. 


I used a trio of MFT triangle dies that were still connected (thank heaven), then stamped the Bitty Bears. I haven't used my Copic markers in a long time, so I had fun coloring...a sweet sentiment and a crimped border, and that was it ~

We would love to see how the code word ‘Triangles’ inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team, and play along with us, come on over and check out the ATCAS Blog ~


Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - Bitty Bears
Dies: MFT - Bitty Bears, Triangles; The Greetery - Crimped Frame
Misc: Copic Markers

CAS Christmas Card Challenge - Reminder


Hello friends ~ Just a reminder that there is still time to link up your card for the January CAS Christmas Card Challenge
Julia is hosting this month and she has chosen ‘Silver & Gold’ for our prompt.


This is the first time I'm using this nativity die, and I was so happy that it cuts in 2 pieces so I could use silver and gold cardstock to show it off. I also heat embossed the sentiment in gold, placed gold cardstock behind the lace border, and added a few silver gems.

My teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire everyone ~ Come on over to the challenge blog to check them out, and play along with us, if you like! You have until the 24th to submit your card! I hope to see you there ~

Sending Warm Blessings


Hi there, blog friends ~ Welcome back! I hope you all had a nice holiday with family and friends, and that 2022 is filled with good times and good health!
It’s time for the January challenge at CAS Christmas. Our Hostess is Julia and she has chosen ‘Silver & Gold’ for our prompt. Our Guest Designer is Lisa.


I started by die-cutting the wreath twice in each color then stacked them beginning with gold and ending with silver. The berries were cut with red foil cardstock for a pop of color and I used gold EP for the greeting...that was it!

We hope you’ll stop by the Challenge Blog and check out all the beautiful Christmas cards by our DT and Guest Designer...The challenge ends on the 24th, so you have plenty of time to play along with us. It’s a great way to add some beautiful cards to your Christmas card stash! I hope to see you there ~

Addicted to CAS Card Challenge - Our 9th Birthday Celebration


Hello crafty friends! Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS  ~ Nancy is our Hostess, and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Colorful’. Our Guest Designer is Cecile. This is our last challenge for 2021 and we are celebrating our 9th Birthday!

                           


For me, when it comes to color, there's nothing like a good old-fashioned rainbow! I used distress inks on the SSS balloon stencil and added the strings by hand. The sentiment is also from SSS and after adding it, I decided to keep this card extremely CAS. 

We would love to see how the code word ‘Colorful’ inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team and celebrate our 9th Birthday with us, come on over and check out the ATCAS Blog ~

Thank you all for your love and support throughout the year...it means the world to me when you stop by and leave a comment ~ Happy Holidays to all!!!


Thanks so much for stopping by,

Christmas Critters



Hi there, crafty friends ~ Just a reminder that there is still time to link up your card for the November CAS Christmas Card Challenge. I’m hosting this month and I chose ‘Christmas Critters’ for our prompt.
                                                                                                                      

I thought it would be fun to use this new penguin set from MFT for my critter and create a monochromatic color palette with pink accents and a pale pink sky. I used a white gel pen for the snow and Flower Soft and a little pom-pom for the hat. I have a few young teens on my holiday list, and I think this card will work well for one of them. Here is a close-up of all the sparkle and texture on the hat ~ 


My teamies have created some fabulous cards to inspire everyone ~ Come on over to the challenge blog to check them out, and play along with us, if you like! You have until the 24th to submit your card! I hope to see you there ~


I am also adding this card to Darnell's November NBUS Challenge...I love that she encourages us to use what we buy...Thanks, Darnell!

Hello crafty friends! Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS  ~ Sue N. is our Hostess, and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Circle.


I love these cute little penguins from Clearly Besotted. There are several stamps in this set depicting the four seasons, and I chose a few of my faves for this challenge.
