Addicted To CAS Challenge – One Layer Card…

I’m so excited to be a guest designer over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog today! I love CAS, coloring and dies so I really enjoyed this! Thank you for having me ladies!

The challenge this week is One Layer!  I hope you’ll join us!


I decided to make a one layer die cut inlay card using My Favorite Things Beach Scene Builder Die-namics set and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.  All the pieces are cut from an A2 size white card-stock panel, inked with Distress ink and the ink blending tools, fit together like a puzzle, taped together on the back and adhered to an A2 card base.


I did go back in with Distress Markers to accent the embossed lines of the Palm Tree die cut.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection E4730 Escape the Ordinary.  If you love beach images…you have to see what all PW has…lots of fun images and sentiments.  Check out the releases HERE.

The cutie little crab is from Lawn Fawn Palm Trees die set. I die cut two and glued them together at the very tip of it’s claws.  Pretty cute little photo prop! hehe

I used Licorice, Cranberry (SLS has Cranberry) and Pool notecards for my card today and they are available at Arrow through the colors to find the ones you want.

I colored Harvy and the scene with Zig Clean Color Paint markers… love them I do!  Canson Montval watercolor paper, my favorite for coloring… awesome quality.  I’ll link you up below.  I did mask Harvy to stamp the flowers behind him. They’re new too and oh my, the dirt stamp!  I LOVE the dirt stamp! hehe ok it’s named “The Good Earth”.

I accidentally stamped it in black first but after I stamped it in Rich Cocoa Memento ink a couple times and then ink blended it with Gathered Twigs Distress ink, I was glad for the accident!  Happy surprise!

YAY! So many cool stamps, dies, papers, inks, stencils and more from Simon Says Stamp!  Congrats on 13 years Simon Says Stamp!

A couple birthday cards that finally made it to the birthday kids so I can post them!  hehe

Pam Sparks Ethan's 16 b-day

For Ethan’s 16th birthday I used the MFT Smart phone die and one of the borders from the Memory Box Geometric Borders die set…

The Doodlebug enamel black dot for the button at the bottom and Ranger Black enamel accents in the top holes.

It’s hard to see but the phone is cut from Silver metallic card-stock.


Pam Sparks Lilli's 11th b-day

Lilli’s card is made with the Distress Ink Smooshing background and Avery Elle stamps and dies.  I used the dies to make masks to keep the ink off the images.

The rainbow Washi tape is from Doodlebug…not sure about the skinny triangle one.

Linking my cards up to Seize the Birthday challenge!

Working on cards for two Memory Box classes coming up March 12th at Scrapmania in Cedar Rapids! Looking forward to seeing the ladies there again!

Happy Weekend everybody and thanks for stopping by!
