Wow That's Fantastic!



Time Out Challenge #138 is up and running with the theme of FUNNY.



Our challenge is sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays. Winner will receive a $25.00 gift voucher for the CAS-ual Fridays store. 



Milla is our Guest Designer. Milla is a very talented paper crafter with an eclectic style and mad coloring skills! Do treat yourself to a visit to her blog and leave her some love. You'll be so glad you did.


For my card, I stamped "WTF" from sponsor stamps WTF2 using VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink on a piece of patterned paper from BasicGrey Kioshi collection. I then cut it out and adhered it to a strip of another paper from the same collection. I added a thin strip of copper colored glitter paper from American Crafts beneath it, stamped the sentiment from WTF2, and added a graphic design from sponsor stamps Bold Wishes.

You Are My Life's Anchor



Time for a new challenge at Addicted To CAS where the Code Word is FATHER. Our Hostess with the mostest is Jaydee.

To make my card, I first went through my stash to find a sentiment that spoke to me, and built my card from there. I had a dark blue anchor at first, but it was hard to see the word "DAD", so I unglued and re-did. I am much happier with this version. I also added some spatters and the knot too.

Please head on over to the ATCAS Challenge Blog, take a look at the wonderful inspiration pieces the Design Team has created for your inspiration, and make something to share in the gallery. Challenge winner will be offered a Guest Designer spot for a future challenge. Happy crafting!

Joy To The World



The June Christmas challenge is up and running at Happy Little Stampers. The theme is Anything Goes Christmas with an optional twist of NON TRADITIONAL. For my card, I used some patterned paper with traditional red and green, but also pink, blue and polka dots which I think deviates from the traditional. I had hoped that the glue I used to tack the vellum down was not going to show through the vellum when it dried, but it did. I was going to re-make the card, but I liked the way it turned out so much though, that I left it as is. The JOY die cut is stacked on 3 layers pf pink card stock, and the rest of the sentiment on the little banner die cut is heat embossed.

Please head over to Happy Little Stampers JUNE Christmas Challenge and see what the Design Team has created to inspire you. Christmas cards made throughout the year = less stress when Christmas rolls around in December. Be good to yourself and play with us!

Congrats!



Time for a new challenge at Addicted To CAS where the Code Word is GRADUATION. Our Hostess with the mostest is Angie..

I went with a traditional (High School) graduation card. I wanted to use the recipient's school colors, black and yellow, for my card. My stamp and die are from Papertrey Ink. I am away from my craft desk at the moment, and I do not know the names of the stamp set and die, but I believe they are both retired. I love the simplicity of this card, though I felt the addition of the twine was necessary to finish it off well, still keeping it a CAS design. 

Please head on over to the ATCAS Challenge Blog, take a look at the wonderful inspiration pieces the Design Team has created for your inspiration, and make something to share in the gallery. Challenge winner will be offered a Guest Designer spot for a future challenge. Happy crafting!

Put On A Tutu




It's time for a new challenge at Less Is More. We are challenged to make a card or cards with the theme of CAS EMBOSSING - Heat embossing or dry embossing but if using folders it must be less than 1/3 of the card embossed.


Our sponsor is CAS-UAL Fridays Stamps.



For my card, I used CAS-UAL Fridays Tutu set, which I adore. stamped the image with VersaMark, heat embossed it in black, and colored it with various shades of pink. I needed a card of encouragement for a friend, and this was the perfect image and sentiment for her. I die cut my panel with Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Lawn Cuts, and mounted it on a white card base.
