Mixed Bunch- 2 Different CAS Cards- 3 Challenges

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to create a few CAS cards with the new stamp set, Mixed Bunch and decided to utilize a few of my favorite weekly challenges.  I had fun making these cards- I hope you like them!

The first card uses the FMS20 Sketch from Freshly Made Sketches “Going Long” along with the JAI103 Color Challenge at Just Add Ink.  If you have the time, check out both of these sites- the Design Team samples as well as the other entries are wonderful!

This card was quick and easy- embossing with the Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, add some DSP, layered cardstock, ribbon,  heat embossed flower and pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Mixed Bunch, Blessings from Heaven

Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red, Real Red DSP (retired Hostess Pack)

Ink:  Versamark™, Real Red

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Red Embossing Powder (retired), Blossom Punch, 5/8” Real Red Satin Ribbon (retired), Pearls

The second card is a simple Black and White study using the Stampin’ Queen’s SQSC24 Sketch.  This site provides a weekly challenge that is very unique and creative- they have a fabulous design team with a lot of inspiration!  I hope you have a chance to check them out as well…

Again, this card only requires a few embossing folders, a die cut, a few punches, heat embossed flower, ribbon and pearls to finish off the card.  

Stamp Sets:  Mixed Bunch, Tiny Tags

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black

Ink:  Versamark™, Basic Black

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Scallop Circle Bigz™ Die, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders- Perfect Polka Dots, Square Lattice, Snowburst, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder, Punches- 3” Circle, Jewelry Tag, Blossom;  Silver Brad, 5/8” White Satin Ribbon, Pearls

Thanks again for taking the time to visit and I hope you have a great week!
