Hello! I was being a bit creative using this image of Gladiolus on its side but it's just the way I felt doing it. No logical reason why I did it.... I know they do not grow that way. Glads come in nearly every color of the rainbow and I decided to do mine in coral and orange tones by coloring with Copics....sorry no list. I followed the sketch shown below right.
Supplies: Stamps: Power Poppy Gladiolus Digi and Sentiment from Azalea Set
Ink: Memento Bamboo Leaves
Paper: Coral, Green, and White CS from stash, Pattern Paper from Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky Pad
EF: Cuttlebug Herringbone
Dies: Spellbinders circle and scallop circle
Grosgrain Ribbon from stash
Sorry, the photo shows the card a bit wonky but the edges are really straight.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you.
Welcome! Lately, I seem to be stuck on making CAS cards. But there are so many great challenges featuring the CAS style. I don't see many CAS cards made with pattern paper but I love to create with pattern designs and use embossing on the paper to create some texture. Here I have used the sketch shown below on the right and used stamps from Power Poppy Sassy Succulents set.
Challenges: CAS(E) this Sketch: Use sketch to create CAS Power Poppy Peep of the Week: Create with Power Poppy Stamps Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge: Triple Threat-Use at least 3 items from their list: ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, sprays/mists, punched elements or die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies, dry embossing or scoring. I used Ribbon, Die Cut, and dry embossing. Simon Wednesday: Emboss It Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge: Use patterned paper to cover entire card.

Hello! Back for another post of another CAS Card. I had been trying to come up with an idea for the Challenge at CAS-ology for the cue card RUN and remembered a stamp of running giraffes. I stamped the pair of giraffes 4 times to create a Tower ...yes, that is what a group of giraffes is called. I used a printed cardstock from DCWV Safari Chic Matstack to create the scene of running giraffes with an African tree and sentiment all stamped in GKD Black Onyx ink. I placed on a card base of DCWV Black. I hope this qualifies as a CAS card --I think I left enough blank space.

Welcome to my studio! I am making more and more CAS cards such as this one posted today. As I kept looking at the sketch from Poppy Sketches, I could only think of a pocket stamp that I had, so I flipped the sketch and came up with this design. I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Jean Pocket stamp with Versamark on Purple CS and heat embossed with Gold EP. After trimming out the pocket I distressed the edges and adhered to Pink Card base. I stamped the Mark's Finest Papers sentiment also with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold EP. I cut a strip and punched a heart with EK punch from a Gold Glitter Paper to finish the design.

Hello! Today I am sharing a CAS card made with shadow stamping with a monochrome theme. Starting with a ivory card base, I added a layer of green and then the image layer stamped in 2 shades of green ink and a sentiment of green. I added scoring on the edges of the image layer and some green rhinestones.

Hello! Today I have made a round card using a digital image from A Day for Daisies called Favorite Flower Pots. This looks like something I would place in my garden....some old worn work boots recycled as flower pots. After printing the image, I colored with Copics and cut with a Nesties Circle Die and attached to a yellow circle and then a base of red card stock cut with a lacey scallop circle die. I stamped with a Flourishes Hello in Memento Rich Cocoa.
What's more fun in the summer than enjoying an Ice cream cone on a hot summer afternoon? The Designer's Choice challenge at The House That Stamps Built is Summer Fun. So an ice cream cone came to mind as the theme of my card for this challenge. I used the sketch from The Kraft Journal Challenge below to assemble the card,
Hello again! I have been playing with Power Poppy's Countryside Bouquet digital image that I printed on watercolor paper and water colored with Distress inks and a water brush. This is only the second image that I have ever colored in this manner. I must say that I was really happy with the final results and how well I stayed in the lines. To see the details even better, click on the image to enlarge. The hardest part of this card was deciding how to finish....the image laid on my desk a few days before I finally chose the card base and background. I pulled out the blue from the bouquet by adding some ribbon and sprinkles. I thought this looked best as a square card which I seldom make.
