Another CAS Challenge or Two


Another day of fun with CAS the clean and simple way of creating cards at the moment for me....

I have been searching the net for CAS challenges to enter and I found one that runs for a week starting Fridays...

The blog is called CAS-ual Fridays. 
Click here to see the blog, current challenge and rules to partake.

This weeks challenge is a fall inspired challenge.....using fall color palette and at least one leaf..This challenge will run for two weeks..

Here is my card I designed and created for this challenge.
Click the images for more detail and larger view.

A simple layout..horizontal A2 card.  Die cut layered squares on the cuttlebug on white and black textured card-stock. 

Stamped the autumn leaves in fall colours with distress inks and using the rocking motion to add different colors to the leaves. Stamp them in a floating motion to the right across the three squares..Layer them like a picture frame and separate them for bit of an effect.

Then stamp a simple Celebrate the Season sentiment in the middle.

Finally with the crushed olive distress ink sponged the edges of the card to bring the whole design together.

Stamps used:
Leaves (rubber cling stamps) by Cloud9 Design
Sentiment (rubber cling stamps) by Vintage Christmas by Fiskars

Inks used:
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Barn Door, Crushed Olive, Dried Marigold, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw,

Die Cuts used:
3 in 1 Nesting Dies (Squares) by mpress - used with the cuttlebug.

There you go nice and easy...simple and clean card for the season of autumn/fall.
I really enjoyed creating this card, I like the pop of color the leaves create against the white..very cool.

Thats all for now, might check out other CAS challenges to enter....

ciao for now
