ASM - CAS and 3rd Birthday .....

.... Good Evening everyone!  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  More importantly, it's also ASM's 3rd Birthday and we're celebrating in style.  Congratulations to Kylie - this is a wonderful challenge and I'm very proud to be part of such a fantastically talented and friendly team.

This week's it's our ever popular CAS challenge -  clean and crisp, with minimal embellishment, lots of white space (or coloured space).  We also have some fantastic sponsors this week - all offering prizes - see below.  I'm going to start with a birthday card - seems appropriate:

Stamps: Bugaboo Digi - JJ Tequila and Shoes; Winnie & Walter - The Party
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Daffodil Delight, Green Galore, Primrose Petals, Brocade Blue
Dies: Spellbinders - Superellipse (S5-188) #1
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU DP - Rose Red; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Glossy Accents

I love the JJ digis and there are loads on the Bugaboo site - do check them out.  I printed her on white card, coloured with Copic markers, carefully drew a line around the image and cut it out with a scalpel.  I added some Wink of Stella to her dress, earrings, hat and cake frosting.  I also added some glossy accents to her specs.  As she's at a party, I decorated the front of the card with party confetti - still keeping it reasonably clean and simple.  I finished the front with a simple birthday greeting.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and added a sentiment and more confetti on the white panel.

Next I have a Christmas card to share - it's a bit different:

Stamps: Sami Stamps Digi - Christmas Lights Mermaid
Dies: Spellbinders - Mega Rectangles Lg (S4-142) #4, Mega Rectangles Scalloped LG (S4-143) #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - North Pole; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Glossy Accents

I love the whimsical digital images at Sami Stamps and just love this festive mermaid.  I coloured her with Copic markers and cut out the finished image with a die, layering it on some red design paper.  I added Wink of Stella to her tail, bra, eye lids and hairband.  I put glossy accents on the Christmas lights.  I finished the front with a ready-made sentiment from the design paper pad.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of the red paper and added another sentiment in the middle.

My last card is bright and summery and features a cute little snail!

Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Mega Rectangles Lg (S4-142) #3, Mega Rectangles Scalloped LG (S4-143) #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Fiesta!; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear;

Such a fun and quirky digital image - I adore that cute little snail and he really sparkles in the sun - he's covered with Wink of Stella!  I coloured with Copics, cut out with a die, layered on to a mat and adhered in the centre of the card.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of the same design paper and added some flowers to the white panel.
