Three Easy CAS Cards

I had some “puttering” time in my stamp room, so I made a few cards!  This one is for the sketch #237 from Create with Connie & Mary this week:
2012 Create Thursday-017 
I had some scraps of Primrose Petals Coredinations paper from a previous project, so I pulled one out to make this little square card:
The panels are canvas; I first stamped the French script from French Foliage in Crumb Cake, then the floral image from Creative Elements right over top.  I added some swirls and butterflies…..which were stamped in Versamark ink and then dabbed with pastels…..remember that technique?  Poppin’ Pastels?!  I love the effect on this paper:
Finally, I added a ribbon and half a banner with a sentiment from Fabulous Phrases and an image from Itty Bitties.
My next was using the CAS(E) This Sketch #13:
This is one of those cards where I let the paper do ALL the work!  No stamping at all:
Just LOVE these MME papers!  And finally, using some scraps from the same papers, I snagged the LIM sketch from last week":
This one does have a bit of stamping on it, as well as a little glimmer paper scalloped heart…..easy peasy
!  I am also entering this in the Addicted to CAS challenge #5, which is to use a heart!

In an effort to begin Cassidy on her potty training, I bought her a doll that wets:
She wasn’t quite sure what was going on when what she put in decided to come out!


  1. All 3 of these are gorgeous, LeAnne! I especially love the 2nd one. That's some awesome paper! I remember having a Tiny Tears doll when I was little. I loved that she wet her pants when I fed her. I hope Cassidy enjoys her baby as much as I did mine.

  2. Wow, you've been busy LeAnne! Nice cards and love the monochromatic coloring of the CCMC Challenge card. Thanks for playing Create with Connie & Mary this week!

  3. Pretty cards! Such a fun technique for your focal point on the first! You did a great job with those MME papers. I love them but sometimes struggle to use them well.\
    Happy Saturday!
