More Clean and Simple Cards!

The wonderful thing about CAS cards is that they come together so quickly! I was able to complete three of them yesterday with very limited time at my craft table!

I already showed you yesterday my first card for the Sketch Challenge for the CAS DT contest that I am entering. I finished the other two yesterday and posted them on the thread.

Here is the card I created for the Color challenge which was to use Browns with a touch of red!

Friendship Gives Wings to the Heart

This card uses the Heart With Wings stamp from Unity's August KOM (LOVE it!) Then I paired with it the stamp that I just bought while at CHA from Cornish Heritage Farms Friend Centers set. How perfectly does that match the stamp? I was so excited when I realized how well they would go together! I used BG paper and colored my image with Prismacolors. The ink is SU Chocolate Chip. The ribbon is from Michael's and I thought it was a perfect match too! I added a touch of paper piecing for the little extra touch that this clean and simple card needed!

My next DT challenge card is a theme based card. We had to use Fall, a Fall holiday or Christmas as the theme of the card. I chose Halloween! (That is a holiday right?)

Hauntingly Sweet Halloween

Yesterday was Happy Mail day since I got a big package of Unity Halloween stamps plus some free ones that I got for making my order during their special last week! This Hauntingly Sweet set is one of the ones that I got and I just had to ink it up right away. It is so cute... I love it!

The DP is from HOTP and I colored the image in with my Copics. Not a lot of coloring here, but this stamp lends itself really well to CAS style cards! The border punch is also a new I got from Martha Stewart. It is one of the new releases! I have plans to repeat this card, but turn it into a NOT Clean and Simple card! I will post it when it is finished!

Finally, I did one more CAS card yesterday for Monday's CAS Challenge (CAS29). We were supposed to make a card that was inspired by a shoe or bag from the Anthropologie website. My card is inspired by this shoe HERE!

Butterfly Thank You

This is another Unity card! You know how much I love Unity!! Both the stamp and the sentiment come from the September 08 KOM. Really quick to put together. The border punch is also MS, but it is the punch to make holes for binders. It matched the shoe perfectly though don't you think?

That will do it for today! I hope to have some time later at my craft table to work on some more creations to share with you! I am off to go hang out with my neice Lindsay! We are getting the baby's nursery ready! Ava Rae could be here any day!

Have a clean and simple kind of day and may your bucket overflow with happiness!!
