CAS Colours & Sketches #123

The first CAS Colours & Sketches challenge for May and Stef's first stint as hostess. She's chosen a super subtle combo of colours to get everyone in the mood to craft.

And I decided to go super simple with these gorgeous colours.

I stamped the background stripes and then used my go to die to cut a stitched rectangle. The flowers and vase were stamped, die cut, popped onto foam pads and placed before adhering to work out where to stamp the stems.

A simple sentiment and pearls in the flower centres and I was done.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, A Little Something; SU, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: SU, tangerine tango, soft suede, sahara sand
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles
Embellishments: Hobby House pearls, chocolate heaven

How will you create with these colours? Looking forward to seeing what you come up with, always a pleasure to visit your blogs.  Here's the link back to CAS Colours & Sketches to check out the rest of the DT inspirational cards.

Thanks for your time today. And keep crafting!

  1. Thanks Jane for your lovely comments and encouragement. Super card, I love the addition of the grungey stripes and I really must get myself a stitched rectangle die! It stops a CAS design from looking too ordinary especially with a white mat on a white card blank. Thanks. Stef x

  2. Jane, I love you Gorgeous Grunge background, I've never been happy when I've used this paticular stamp, seeing how you've done it has made me want to try again. The whole thing has a super contemporary feel and is brilliantly CAS

  3. Your cards are always simple yet beautiful!! But definitely not simple for me to make!!! (hope that makes sense). I love the flowers and the stamping!! LOVE this card!!

  4. I agree with Louise - your card has a really great contemporary feel. I love how you've used the challenge colors! And like Stef, I must get myself some stitched rectangle dies... I love the look of them, but I only have stitched circle dies.
