Addicted to CAS Challenge #149 - Presents



Hello there, blog friends! It's time for our last challenge for 2018 at ATCAS. Our Hostess is Susan and just in time for the holidays, she is challenging us to use the Code Word 'Presents'.
Our Guest Designer is Chrissie Stokes (Co-Creator of Less is More Challenge Blog), and she has created a gorgeous card to inspire everyone!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers and as always, Kylie is offering a stamp set to the winner!

I grabbed a set of MFT dies from my NBUS basket and created this card:


I started by ink blending Tumbled Glass ink behind my focal point, but it's so pale, you can barely see it on screen. Then, I used X-Press It Blending Card to die cut the gift bags and colored them with Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine, then sprinkled clear EP to add a little bit of shine...Lastly, I used the Wonky Stitched Rectangle die for a fun border. 

Ok, now we would love to see how the code word 'Presents' inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team, and play along with us, feel free to visit the ATCAS Blog ~ Our challenges run for 2 weeks, so you have plenty of time :)

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Dies: MFT - Wonky Stitched Rectangle. Gift Bags
Misc: Versafine Onyx Black ink; Ranger Clear EP; X-Press It Blending Card; Copic Markers; Lucy's Cards - Opalescent Diamonds Sequins; Tim Holtz - Tumbled Glass Ink
