ASM - Round the Clock .....

.... Good evening everyone!  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! - ASM#69 - it's our CAS week.  It seems our colours last week weren't very popular, but hopefully you'll enjoy this one more!  Here's my card:


Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Gorgeous Grunge; Uniko Studio - Extra Time
Inks: Memento - Peanut Brittle, Toffee Crunch, Pistachio, Espresso Truffle; SU - Sahara Sand
Accessories:  SU Card - Sahara Sand; White Lustre Card; Twine

Once again, I've gone with a more masculine card and, you've guessed it, this is another for my son Ben.  I've used a couple challenges to make it:

I really like the colours on the Uniko challenge graphic.  I cut a panel of Sahara Sand card for the mat and on the white layer I stamped the distressed stripes along the top of the card, a clock at the bottom right and a simple sentiment.  I wound some twine around the top of the card.  I adhered the white panel to the card with dimensional tape.  The inside has a mat of Sahara Sand and some more distressed stripes and space for a message to Ben.  I'm not sure whether this has enough white space for Chrissie and Jen, but it is really clean and simple!


I have CASed a card I saw on Debbie Blake's blog - she made a set of rainbow cards with the Gorgeous Grunge stamps.  I love the rainbow colours, but actually the style works really well with these colours too!  That's all for now.  See you soon.
