Hello! Happy 2016! I will admit that I enjoyed a nice break from crafting over the holidays, but now I’m ready to get back into it again.
Unfortunately, I feel like my card for the first CAS Colours & Sketches challenge of the year shows that my card making skills got a little rusty over the break. I had a few other ideas, but the more I thought about them, I felt they either weren’t CAS enough or were just a second take on some of the previous cards I’ve made. Finally I decided to try the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge that ends later this morning. I stamped the “H PPY” part of the sentiment twice so I could use die-cut balloons in both of the blue challenge colors to fill in for the letter “a”. The lower, lighter color balloon is attached with dimensional adhesive for a little bit of visual interest (and to accommodate the string of the other balloon beneath it).
Come meet our new Design Team members at CAS Colours & Sketches, as well as our January Guest Designer! Then show us what you can create with our challenge colors. You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, January 13 to share your card at the challenge post. We’d love to see what you can make! Thanks for stopping by today.
