CAS Colours & Sketches #367

Good morning friends.  I hope everyone is still doing well during our Forced CoronaCation.  It's Tuesday once again and time for another color challenge at the CAS Colours and Sketches blog.  Patricia has picked out some awesome colors for us to use.  

The idea is to create a card using the three colors illustrated above it.  As always,
 you may use whatever brand of ink, cardstock, markers, etc you have in your stash
as long as they're similar to the Stampin' Up ones named above.  You are also free to 
add neutrals but this trio of colors should be the only other ones used on your card.  

This color combo made my little heart go pitter patter so I have not one, but two cards for you today.  

On the CC&S blog today you'll see this card:

I created it by die cutting leaf branches in the three different colors illustrated in the challenge.  I traced around a circle die so that I could get my placement in a nice wreath arrangement, alternating the three colors.  I stamped the sentiment on a smaller circle and placed it in the middle of the wreath.  I finished it off with some enamel dots in four colors.  (The three challenge colors along with white.)  I'm really happy about how this turned out.

There is another leaf branch die in the set and because I had extra cardstock I decided to make another card.  This second one isn't quite as CAS but I love it too.

For this card I arranged the larger leafy branches to cover the card front.  I added in a green heart wreath which I centered in white.  I added the sentiment to the center and again finished it off with the same four colors of enamel dots.  I can't decide which I love better.  (A good thing, right?)

Paper Smooches - Foliage 1 die set
Altenew - Fresh Freesia stamp set (sentiment)
Avery Elle - Banner Bits stamp and die set
Avery Elle - Heart Frame
Nuvo - liquid enamel dots
Assorted cardstock manufacturers

I hope to see you in the gallery this week!

Stay healthy my friends!

Happy Crafting!




  1. I think it's fine to love them both - perfect use of the bold, dramatic colours!

  2. It makes my heart go pitter patter, too, Julie! and I love the dies you've used to apply them to your cards! That PS foliage has been on my radar! Fabulous, times two!
