CAS Challenge

Clean and Simple (CAS) is a style of card that heaps of people find challenging, I think it’s those blank, open, white spaces. We feel as though we need to fill the spaces with something. Well, I do. I think I’m getting better at them though.  I’m starting to enjoy the simplicity of a CAS design.  

This card is a colour challenge for CAS Colours and Sketches. 

I’ve used Distress Oxides to make a very quick and easy background with two of the colours, and the gorgeous Sizzix butterfly die. Too easy! And gorgeous colours!!

Happy Stamping!

Crafty Boots Butterfly Challenge

The current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is to use a Butterfly on your project.
Anyone else love Butterflies?

I do.  And I certainly love using them on my cards and papercraft projects.
This card was fairly quick and easy to make up, and again, uses some of the gorgeous new Stampin’ Up! products about to be released.
The lovely embossing folder which is framing the sentiment is called Floral Affection, and comes as a set of two folders.  I just happen to love my embossing folders, so they are always top of my wish list!
This card also uses my favourite of the new In Colours, called Sweet Sugarplum, and the butterfly is die cut from the new Playful Palette paper stack.
Happy Stamping!
