Addicted to CAS Challenge - Code Word 'Anniversary'

It is the first anniversary at Addicted to CAS and it is all happening on their blog at the moment!  The challenge this time - needless to say - is 'Anniversary' and as usual the design team have done an amazing job with their inspirational samples.

My card is very simple.  I seem to be short of crafting time at the moment - this is what I came up with . . . .

Happy Anniversary

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Stamps - 'Mini Love Hearts'

This is perhaps too CAS - I will leave you to judge!  This stamp set is so versatile with the different shaped hearts.

After I had finished the card I realised that it did not have to be a one layer card.
This has meant I made it more difficult for myself than it needed to be.

That is all for now.

Thank you for visiting.

Less is More Challenge - Week 145 OLC Thank You

The challenge at Less is More this week is a one layer card and the subject is "Thank You".  

If everything goes to plan I quite enjoy the challenge of one layer cards but it can be hit and miss especially with the odd inky fingermark which manages to appear at the end of all the hard work!

This is what I came up with this time without  any mishaps with the ink!

Many Thanks

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Stamps  - 'Leafy Accents'
Sentiment - 'Honeycomb'

I don't think I need to explain how I made this as it is so simple - that is how I like it!

That is all for now

Thank you for calling in

Addicted to CAS Challenge 25 - Code Word One layer

I am beginning to realise that Christmas is creeping up on us and that means I have a load of Christmas cards to make.  As they have to be mass produced it will have to be a simple card and what could be easier than a one layer card - she says!

Actually I don't find this kind of card that easy because once ink and stamp meets card that is it - no turning back!

Anyway, this is one of the ideas that I have come with but I think that it will be a little bit time consuming for mass production even though it is simple but I thought it ideal for this challenge at Addicted to CAS.

We Three Kings

Supplies:  Stamps Clarity Stamps

I masked and lightly sponged the foreground in Versa Magic 'Persimmon', Brilliance 'Galaxy Gold' and Adirondack 'Butterscotch'.
The Three Wise Men were embossed - this does not show up very well in the photograph.

Hope this is CAS enough!

That is all for now.  Thank you so much for dropping by.
