Today's card is one that I submitted for the first round of the CAS design team call on Splitcoast. I didn't make it to the second round (sniff, sniff) but I was still darn happy with this card and it inspired me to keep it simple more frequently! (I confess that keeping it simple is hard for me...oh how I love layers and bling!)

Since I had a very short time to prep for the class, I opted to re-create a few cards that I had made in the past but change the papers and images to be more kid friendly. This first card, one of my favorites, features this sweet bear image from the Sweet 'n Sassy, Baby's Circus stamp set. (The sentiment is from the Gifts from Turtle set) The sweet circus-themed paper is from Imaginisce.
We had a great time at our class and I'm so thankful to the TPS ladies who asked me to teach! I'm looking forward to more classes, once a month for now, and you can check back here for more details!

This fun pop up card is one that I'll be demonstrating at an upcoming Wholly Scrap! class. During the class we'll create cards using fun and unique folding techniques. I paired my darling stamps with paper from Bo Bunny and Anna Griffin. (Someone stop me...I'm in a major pink phase lately!) My image was colored with Copics and mounted on some fun text paper. The ribbon is from SU!, the buttons are from Papertreyink, and the twine is from Sweet 'n Sassy!

Quick post today...Other details on this card, heart border die from Sweet 'n Sassy and hello sentiment from Paper Smooches! Oh and the background of this card is Core-di-nations cardstock, which has a colored core that is revealed when sanded. I embossed the cardstock first and then sanded the raised edges to reveal the teal core...neat, huh?

This card features stamped and die cut hearts, all in a nice little pile (thanks to lots of foam tape!) The hearts were cut with the Heart Die Set from Sweet 'n Sassy. Before I cut out the hearts, I used a text background stamp from SU! and Spun Sugar Distress Ink to stamp on a piece of cardstock. After the hearts were cut, I selected three that I liked and used foam tape, in different thickness (the big heart is taped flat, the medium heart is attached with 1/16" thick foam tape, and the small heart is attached with 1/8" thick foam tape). Then I added a tiny white button, from Papertreyink, tied with white and pink twine, from Sweet 'n Sassy. The tiny sentiment is from the Rose Collage stamp set, also from Sweet 'n Sassy.
Enjoy and be sure to check out all of the great artwork on the CAS board today...and join in the challenge!!
