CAS Colours and Sketches #395


Shannon is taking the reins as hostess for November at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog and she's starting out the month with a fall inspired color trio.


For our color challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colors. You may also use neutral colors; however, the 
challenge colors should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up color names for reference,
but  you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colors as closely as possible.

I'm once again bucking the trend using these colors to create a card with more of a spring time feel to it.

This one was very easy to create.  I first stamped and colored the image using an alcohol friendly ink and Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment in a crisp black pigment ink and then ran the panel through my die cutter using a pretty swirly cover plate, channeling my inner Michele. ;-)  I cut down the panel a bit, added a narrow matte and then adhered the whole thing to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110 lb.  I finished it off with a triangle of gold foil pearls.  Super simple.

I know we're approaching a very busy time of year but we'd love to have you come play along with us this week!

WPlus9 - Amaryllis stamp set
Altenew - Dotted Swirls debossing cover plate
Studio Katia - gold foil pearls.

Stay safe and healthy my friends!  


Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.  

Happy Crafting!



  1. This is lovely! That die cut background is very special and really adds to the card. (As for spring vs fall - who creates cards in the current season anyway?)

  2. OH I'm so happy you bought that swirly cover-plate, Jules! You'll be amazed at the times it will add just the right touch of something - like today! It's a gorgeous place to plant this beautifully colored bulb!

  3. So pretty and so simple. I love the pierced background. When your creative mind leads you in a direction, no matter the season, you just gotta go with it and see where it takes you.
