Just For You

Addicted to CAS Challenge #149 is up and running with Code Word: Presents. 
Susan is our host.

Don't forget, as always, Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor, and Kylie is generously awarding a stamp set to the winner!

We have a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge...Chrissie Stokes. It was by joinging in on her Less Is More Challenge many years ago, that lead me to embrace the CAS style. Please visit her blog for a real treat and some serious CAS inspiration.

Please remember that this is a CAS challenge. Here is a definition to remind you:

For my card, I stamped, colored with Zigs (or "Ziggified, as Darnell would say)nd die cut some of the images from Waffle Flower's Gift Wrapper, and arranged them on a die cut circle from MFT's Wonky Stitched Circle Stax. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Chirstmas set.

Please head over to the Addicted To CAS blog to see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration. Come play with us for a chance to win some wonderful Happy Little Stampers products.

To make my card, I concentrated on those awesome red pillows. I die cut the SSS Alicia Snowflake in white glitter paper, inlaid it on red card stock and finished it off with an silver-embossed sentiment from Altenew's Build  Flower: Poinsettia on a black stitched banner.

Creative With Stamps Challenge #32 is up and running with the theme of FEATHER.

For my card, I used the largest feather image from Papertrey Ink's Feather Finery set. I stamped it in 3 fall shades using my MISTI. After stamping with color, I stamped again with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with clear EP. I heat embossed again with the detail stamp that goes with the feather using gold EP.  It's hard to see that detail in the picture, but it does add depth and interest. I used matte gold cardstock to die cut, stack and inlay the word "hugs" (die from STAMPlorations), added a few sequins, distressed the edges and attached that panel to my card base. 

Challenge Sponsor is MHK Designs

Challenge winner will receive their choice of 3 MHKDesigns.

Please head on over to the Creative With Stamps Blog, check out what the Design Team has come up with to inspire you, and play along with us.
Happy crafting!

I Drive Stick

I just LOVE this stamp set by Picket Fence Studios - it cracks me up. And I DO drive a stick shift car. I had to have this set. I created a CAS Halloween card using glittery embossing powder over a panel of blended Distress Oxide Inks.

With Gratitude

Addicted To CAS #148 is up and running. The challenge is to make a ONE LAYER card and Barb is our hostess. Barb will be sending a crafty gift to the challenge winner.

Remember - A 'one layer' card is defined as "A piece of card folded in two. No other layers are allowed".

Don't forget, as always, Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor, and Kylie is generously awarding the winner  a $20.00 gift 
certificate to the store!

To create my card, I masked a panel on Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock and blended some Distress Oxide inks in fall colors. I stamped a leaf from Paper Smooches Botanicals 2  in VersaFine Vintage Sepia over the inked panel. The heat embossed sentiment is from Jillian Vance Designs Auntum Blessings set.

Please head over to the Addicted To CAS blog to see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration and share your one layer wonder in the gallery.

Happy Birthday

I am squeeking in at the last minute to share my birthday card for my son. I am playing with Watercooler Wednesday WWC192. To make my card, I used Disrtress Oxide inks, Concord & 9th's Every Tintables Card Pack, Everyday Stamp Set and Everyday Circle Dies. I embossed the sentiment in white, sprayed the top panel with clear shimmer spray and added some twine.
