CAS Sunday

Hello folks, happy weekend to you!

A couple of very CAS cards for a few different challenges - the first is for Addicted to CAS where the code word is 'daisy'. I've also been inspired by Time Out's Home Sweet home challenge and drew from the gorgeous palette of neutral whites, blue candle, distressed wood and the vase of daisies sat on the table. I stamped the Paper Smooches paint strip die with MFT's Wood Plank and coloured it using Weathered Wood distress ink. The embossed corner came about entirely by accident when I grabbed two lots of card stock by mistake and tried to die cut them both. It left an embossed image on the bottom piece which actually looked better than the die cut - love a happy accident!














My second card is for Paper Smooches' Anything Goes challenge - I've used Lovestruck with the colours from Color Throwdown. I gave the little hearts a liberal covering of Glossy Accents which has added a raised, shiny layer of texture too. These sweet little arrows are just under 2 inches in length so I'm also popping this one over to Less is More where the recipe is to use small stamps which are less than 2 inches in diameter. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. we do love Happy Accidents and your one here worked out perfectly. I love how the different images in our photo inspired you especially how you represented the blue candle-I so missed that in the photo and do love to see what we all pick up on! And wow to that gorgeous flower with the pop of yellow. Card 2 is also a beauty. I always love to see you at Time Out and thanks for joining us x

  5. That's such a fun, colourful, crisp and CAS collection of arrows, Claire ... and how splendid is that dimensional daisy against all the yummy texture and all the glorious white space! That happy accident embossing looks just perfect! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)
