I'm Addicted to CAS

Happy Independence Day! 
This is my first post as a Design Team Member for Addicted to CAS. I have always loved this challenge blog, mainly because CAS is my style of stamping. Our challenge this week is Patriotic 

I am also entering this one over at Less is More for their challenge of Red, White, and Blue

For my card I used the Work of Art set from Stampin Up. This set is so versatile, you can see the butterfly card I made using it HERE and the Christmas one HERE. 

Let's Go Shopping!

Sweet Summer

Today I am playing with The Stamps of Life. I can say it is officially Summer here in Colorado but it's going to be beautiful for the holiday weekend.  I used two different sets to make my card, pops2eat and patterns4pops, along with the matching Popsicle die don't you just love that houndstooth popsicle? The card die I used is a Flip-it die, these make cards super fast and easy to make.

Christmas In July

Wow can you believe it is July already? So with that said I just had to make a Christmas card in July.  I used the set Work of Art and the greeting from Wonderous Wreath both from Stampin Up. The work of art set is just so versatile, I made another card using it that I will post on Saturday so watch for that post. I also used one of the new colors Cumber Crush, this color is definitely a tree color, and I am loving it.

CAS(E) This Sketch #129

Today I am playing with this gorgeous set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps 
Parisian Postcard
To make my card I started with an A2 white base, I colored the image with Distress Markers and then spritzed a little water on it to give it that watercolor effect. Next I sponged Soft Sky ink over a portion of the card to give it some additional color.
I am entering this one in a couple challenges.

Just finished 50 of these using the Work of Art stamp paired with Another Thank You. The car die is from Frantic Stamper. These were made for Grace River Church to send out to everyone who entered a card in the card show. If you would like cards made for a wedding, shower, birthday or other event just contact me.

Drop Ins

Stephanie Bernard at The Stamps of Life has come out with the neatest thing for the inside of your card, they are called 3D drop ins and I am in love. They allow you to make a 3D card in minutes. These card sets come with tons of dies and the frame to cut the card, easy peasy.  The set I used is the 3D Flower Drop In and it has 21 dies and a storage envelope, how cool is that!?!
The greeting is from a candles4birthday set. 
Make sure to go to The Stamps of Life and check out all the other Drop Ins
