I'm back with a couple of CAS cards which I have made to play along with some of my favourite challenges :)
First up is this happy orange card:
I die cut the Happy die from PTI from the top panel and popped it up over a base panel which I had inked in shades of orange distress ink. A white embossed sentiment from Uniko Studio provides a bit of contrast.
I will link this up with the current challenge at AAA cards which is Orange and also with CASology where the cue card is monochrome (I think this applies?!).
I have also made a one layer card to play along with Less is More where the theme is love:
I stamped the sweet Hero Arts elephants and coloured them in with Spectrum Noir pencils. I masked them to add some subtle inking in the background. The sentiment and hearts are also HA. As this card features animals I will also enter it in to SSS Wednesday Challenge - All Creatures Great and Small and in to the Nature Challenge over at Hero Arts.
I am back to work tomorrow but have enjoyed finding time to catch up on my crafting over the last few days :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Two fantastic cards Sarah. The first one pops and is so full of zing ... in fact I tried something quite similar the other day in orange but yours looks super classy - don't think mine will make it to the blog in it's current form!ReplyDelete
The LIM one is so adorable. That elephant duo stamp is perfect for the challenge and utterly cute.
