Time for a Flutter By Wednesday Challenge! This time I thought I’d try a CAS card (Clean and Simple). I keep seeing so many beautiful CAS cards, and I really would like to be able to do these cards better. I have a tendency to add so many embellishments to my cards, and then I don’t send them to anyone because they won’t fit in envelopes! So perhaps if I can master the CAS card, I will actually send them to people!
The challenge this week at Flutter By Wednesdays is to incorporate a heart into your creation. Of course, you must also use either a butterfly or fairy on your project too as usual. I hope you’ll join us with this fun challenge!
I found some other fun CAS challenges to help keep me on track with this….
I had a little bit of time to play in my craft room this weekend, so I thought I’d play along in the SCS CAS challenge. I really struggle with CAS cards, so my goal it to try at least one a week and see if I can get more comfortable with them. I love the looks of them, I just always finding myself wanting to add “one more thing”!
This fun little cupid is from Make It Crafty. He’s a cute little digi-stamp I picked up last year but never had a chance to color. I figured it was time to show him some love with Copics. I added a bit of sparkle to his wings with my favorite Sakura Stardust pen.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. We spent the weekend de-cluttering the house. We’re selling our motorcycles – I put mine on Craigslist this morning and it sold in less than 4 hours! I couldn’t believe it. Makes me wonder if I didn’t ask enough for it. Back to work tomorrow…
I needed a distraction today, so I thought I’d give the Clean and Simple (CAS) challenge at SCS a try. I don’t know if I’ve ever made a CAS card in my life. More is better, right? I like to use ribbons and layers and buttons and layers and glitter and layers and flowers and layers… but I have always loved the look of CAS cards. I guess I just don’t know when to stop.
This card uses the PostCard stamps from Sweet-n-Sassy. I’ve had this set for quite some time and it was craving some ink, so when I saw the challenge was to make a postage related card I knew it had to come out and get some love. What do you think? Is it too naked? I kept wanting to doodle black lines around the edges of the craft. Or add stitching. It was so hard to stop!!
