ASM - Addicted to CAS ....

......  Hello everyone.  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week it's Addicted to CAS - that means "white" space, clean lines, minimal embellishments.  Oh yes, the "white" doesn't actually have to be white, it can be a plain colour.  Here's my take:

Stamps: Kaisercraft - Tea Break
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Rose Red, Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Crumb Cake; Kaisercraft DP - Violet Crush; SU Marker - Crumb Cake


I've used a couple of challenges in the making of this one - the colours are from CAS - Colours and Sketches - CASC&S#57 and the layout is this week's sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS#60.  I used some new papers and stamps from Kaisercraft.  It came together really quickly.  I cut a mat layer in kraft and adhered this pretty patterned paper over the top.  I inked up the sentiment with three colours and stamped onto white card, I added some lines to for the border and layered on to kraft card.  I adhered the panel with dimensional tape.  For the inside I made a mat of the patterned paper and stamped a large, inspirational sentiment in the middle.

Have you ever typed a report or document on Word and then lost the lot?  Well, that's what happened to Kathryn on Monday.  She'd spent the weekend typing a report for school, but when she opened it she found she'd over typed the essay.  Kathryn was so upset.  When I saw the sentiments in this set, I thought there were just right for an "It's OK" type of support card. 

For more inspiration check out the cards from the Design Team.  This week we are joined by a new Guest Designer, you will have seen her work on our blog and she's is also on our Wall of Fame.  Please check out Karen's card too! That's all for now - see you soon.

The sentiment has me hearing Bob Marley in my head, singing "Don't worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be all right". LOL :) You did a nice job combining the colors with the sketch! Thanks for joining in our challenge this week at CAS - Colours and Sketches.
