Well it’s about time!
I have decided that it is possible to forget how to stamp, how to make cards, how to put things together so they look ok!  I made three CAS cards, and it took me hours.  As Lateblossom has said before, “Clean and simple does not always mean quick and simple.”  I stamped the citrus shapes four or five time before I settled on three colours in a row.   I tried ribbon in many different arrangements before I decided on no ribbon at all.  I tried a green card, white matte. White card, no matte.  Green card, green matte. Just as well my daughter came home when she did and made the decision for me.  Then there was the decision over the sentiment…

All the fruit were inked up with versamark first and then the classic ink before embossing with clear.   The little sentiments are from my new set Teeny Tiny Wishes, a set I’d never noticed before.  I stamped them on spare cardstock and then punched the piece out with a square punch.   Despite the dilemmas I faced along the way it was nice to be stamping again after quite a break.  I have actually been creating lately just using a different medium for a change.

Stamps:   Teensy Tiny Wishes,  Tart & Tangy
Inks: Real Red, Green Galore, Yoyo Yellow, So Saffron, Versamark
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic White, Real Red, Green Galore
Also:  Clear embossing powder

  1. Both cards are such beautiful CAS creations, Heather. CAS cards are the very hardest kind for me to make. I always think I have to add something more. And, like you mention CAS doesn’t stand for “quick” and simple! But when I visit your blog, I see how it’s supposed to be done. Perfection!

  2. I love the happy colors on these cards…and no, CAS isn’t easy!
