Addicted to CAS Card Challenge


Hi there, blog friends! Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS ~ The wonderful Joy D. is our Hostess, and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Flower’.
                         

I needed a get-well card and thought this sentiment was perfect with these pretty blooms. I colored the jug and flowers with Copic markers, then mounted it onto a PTI mat.

We would love to see how the code word ‘Flower’ 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 ~

Hi there, blog friends! It’s time for the April challenge at CAS Christmas. Our Hostess is Trina and she has chosen ‘Rainbow’ for our prompt. Our Guest Designer is the amazing Izzy!

Okay! Light the Candles!



Hi there, blog friends! Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS ~ Jaydee is our Hostess, and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Birthday’. Our Guest Designer is the amazing Chrissie.

                                                  
I really get a kick out of this stamp and I hope my sister likes it too...she'll be 69 next week and this card is for her. I stamped the image and sentiment onto a 5x7 panel and colored it with Copic markers. Then I traced an old Hero Arts speech bubble for the sentiment and die cut an oval shadow die to create a mask to ground the lady. Lastly, I used 2 post-its and a marker (BG10) to make it look like water was coming out of the nozzle.   

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

Addicted to CAS Card Challenge


Hello and welcome to a brand new challenge at Addicted to CAS hosted by Raga.
Here's the theme she has chosen:


I guess I didn't realize how many stamps, dies, and stencils I had with shapes...not to mention in a variety of sizes, too! In the end, I decided to use a diamond stencil and dies.


Please excuse the glare. I tried photographing this card from every angle and between the silver foil cardstock and the silver embossing powder, I couldn't get a nice clean shot! After stenciling the diamond pattern and placing the die-cuts, I added this new layered bloom from Altenew. Lastly, I added a few crystal gems, and this card was finished ~

We would love to see how the code word ‘Shapes’ 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
