CAS card for a couple of challenges

Morning all :-) I hope you’re all fit and well xx

I love the CAS style ,, I am not very good at it but am trying and it seems there are a few challenge blogs appearing now to give us more help and inspiration :-)

I made this card following the fab sketch on the Clean and Simple Stamping Challenge and also the CAS-usl Fridays where the challenge is to use text. Well ,,, I just HAD to use my new Lawn Fawn Just My Type stamps !!

I stamped the typewriter image onto card and Basic Grey Manila paper to use for paper piecing. I coloured a little bit with copics and used Glossy Accents on the keys. I used the same paper to stamp the background using a Herto Arts Friend Definition stamp. The darker papers are also Basic Grey from a Kraft paper pad. I used a SU border punch and finished with a ribbon and button from my drawer and some American Tag twine.

Challenges :

CAS-ual Fridays ,,, Text

CAS Stamping

Allsorts ,,,, 3 or more stamps ( text, typewriter and ‘hello’ )

Ladybug Crafts ,,,, Black/White + one other

Kenny K Krafty Girlz ,,,, Retro

Fab card - so simple and stylish - great for sending a note to someone! Live the type writer too! Not every day you see one of those as we are usually glued to our PC's blog hopping or looking for inspiration!

Have a lovely day Lorraine!
