Falling in Love with CAS


This was such a fun CAS sketch, I had to use it even if it was from a few weeks back.  As you can see, I'm still having issues with getting to sketches in time - and this one is a CAS one at that!!

Decided to go with pink and brown for this Valentine's Day card as I just love these two colours together.  Was hoping to incorporate a third colour, but just couldn't get a colour that seemed to work.  Brain must be water logged from all the rain we're having - well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it LOL!

Pulled out my Martha Stewart heart border punch, paired it with my lacey circle nesties, and couldn't resist using a crimped heart as it gives the card a wonderful pop if dimension :)

Short and sweet today as it's going to be a busy one.  Have a great day!





What's In It?
Stamps: Rubber Soul
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso, White
Ink: Black
Accessories: Martha Sttewart Heart Boarder Punch, Lacey Circle Nesties, Paper Piercing Kit, Crimper, 1/4" Pink Satin Ribbon, Bling, Dimensionals

I hope you had a great birthday, Marisa! So sorry you are getting so much rain. We'll be seeing more snow in a few days. Want some??

What a pretty CAS card and--I SPY!--another crimped heart! They always look so fantastic, and this one is no exception. :)

adorable!!! LOVE the pink and brown and all the white space :) We have blue skies today and 0 degree weather...would love to wash the car, but all the snow will be melting and the roads will be wet! The cards went over well at work and I got a couple of leads on where in town might be good places to sell them...so we'll see :) Have a fun, albeit busy weekend!! How was the birthday dinner? Whatcha get? LOL

Hi Marisa, I love that sketch too but just don't seem to get round to making cards for that challenge. Your card is stunning as usual. xxx

I WISH I could do all the challenges I'd like to participate in, but it's just impossible! This is one GORGEOUS card and I love C&S! The colors and elements are so pleasing to the eye!
BTW, that Sizzix ef you were out-bid on is listed elsewhere on ebay, starting at .99. The lister is calling it "argyle", but it's really from the "Hello Friend Set" found here:

Good Luck!!!

I lol at your commentary. You are so funny! Just because they are CAS does not make them easier. Great look and the colors are fantastic!

This is a wonderfully CAS card - something I sometimes try but never really accomplish! You pulled it off beautifully :)

Benzi said...

I love pink and brown together and rarely use it. Duh! Love this wonderful CAS design and still loving your crimps.

Shelley Germann said...

It is sweet! You have all the perfect elements to make a wonderful CAS card. The punch and crimped heart are are so cute. And BTW, you're not the only one missing deadlines. Unless I post tonight (card is done) it will be the second week in a row I missed the Timeless Tuesday Challenge over at Flourishes...geez!

Aimes said...
