Hello, Beautiful!

Hi there,
Just a quick post from me today to share 2 cards I created for a few challenges ~
The first card is for the current SSS Flickr Challenge and the theme is 'Sparkle & Shine'. 

I recently bought this Artsy Flower Parts stamp set, and I love the cute flowers and leaves. I colored them with Copics and added sparkle with a little bit of clear WOS and a few sparkly sequins from an old SSS card kit. The sentiment is from their Summer Garden stamp set.


My next card is for 2 challenges, both for the theme 'Stencil': CAS on Sunday Challenge and for the
AAA Cards Challenge - CAS Game

This Altenew Halftone Stencil is my new favorite...I placed it on an angle and inked it with Grout Gray, then stamped and die cut the branch, bird, and butterfly. I colored everything with Copic markers and used vellum for the sentiment. I also added a few sparkly sequins and the orange enamel dot, which is one of my DIY projects with Perler Beads...and that was it!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Addicted to CAS Challenge #109

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and our Code Word is 'Rainbow'!

We have a super talented Guest Designer and I'm willing to bet you already know her...Rahmat
Also, our generous Sponsor is Create a Smile and they are offering a GC to their store for the winner!

I have 2 cards to share for this is my first card ~

I used an older Pretty Pink Posh set for the umbrellas and sentiment and added clouds with MFT stitched cloud die. A few clear sequins and a stitched mat and that was it!

And, my 2nd card:

For this card, I blended some distress inks in rainbow order and after die cutting the butterfly, I added a few coats of Versmark and clear embossing powder to create a high shine. I'm really loving these new Confetti sequins...they have a mirror-like effect, and look really pretty on a card.
I am also entering my 2nd card in to the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

I hope you'll stop by the ATCAS Challenge Blog to check out all the beautiful cards by my teamies and Guest Designer, and that you'll consider playing along with us ~

 Happy Easter to those who celebrate! Thanks so much for stopping by,
