CAS at Allsorts



Good morning to you all, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts where this week I am the host and would like to see CAS style cards. Our sponsor is Scrapper Delight

I don't think I am alone when it comes to making CAS style cards and I hope I've not overdone it on these two, but to me they are fairly minimalistic.  The card at the top uses an image from our sponsor called Fairy Wishes and have to confess it was a really quick and easy card to make. I printed the image onto white linen cardstock, used Wink of Stella pens to add some colour and sparkle to the fairies wings and bubbles and gently shaded the edges with distress ink. The sentiment is a stamp from Lavinia and one I do rather like and seem to use quite a lot.

The starting point for my second card was to mask a section on the card and apply Pan Pastels, then remove the masks before stamping the Penny Black bloom and sentiment. I matter the piece onto some coordinating card and black base card. I have to say these cards were both really quick and easy to make and ideal if you need lots in a hurry.


Happy weekend all and I hope you will join in our challenge this week.

Both beautiful and perfectly CAS in style Brenda. Love these types of cards, just wish I could manage them better myself, I never know when to walk away and then it ends up too busy.
