CAS is one of my FAVORITE styles!! So much so that I have 2 cards for you today! Actually I really like how my 1st card came out, but then I got a couple new ink pads from The Stamp Market that I wanted to try out, and my card ended up being CAS so I'm just going to show you both!!
This is actually my 2nd card using my 2 new ink pads (Wisteria & Lilac) and The Greetery's Sketchbook Roses stamp set. I only inked up part of the image and stamped it in the top left hand corner of my cardstock to keep my card CAS. I cut off a 1/2 inch of the right hand side of my panel and then attached to a top folding card base, along with a 1/2 inch strip of black cardstock to the left hand side. I finished it simply with a sentiment from the stamp set, and then added a piece of bakers twine. Easy peasy and CAS!
And here is my 1st card using Altenew's Paint-A-Flower: Carnations which is a similar layout to my other card, but this one I water colored using some Distress Inks (Spun Sugar & Peeled Paint) and my Aqua Painter. I added a strip of PTI's True Black Pattern Pack dsp to the left hand side, and then finished with a sentiment from Altenew's Essential Sentiment Strips Die Set that I die cut using a scrap piece of black cardstock. I also added a few clear gems for just a tiny bit of bling.
I'll be adding this carnation card to Darnell's NBUS Challenge because both the stamp set and the die set have been sitting unused for quite some time! And of course now that I've used them both I'm wondering why I took so long??!!
You still have a few days left to play along at The Flower Challenge (till Friday the 25th), and there's lots of beautiful inspiration from the DT to guide you along if you need help with CAS...just remember to use LOTS of WHITE space!! :0)
