Addicted to CAS Challenge #130 - Cat


Hi there, CAS Addicts! It's time for a new challenge, and as you can see our Code Word is 'Cat'! Doni is our Hostess and Happy Little Stampers is offering the winner a gift card for $20.00.

 Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for everyday crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from everyday to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!   

We also have a very special Guest Designer, one whom you probably know from our paper crafting community...Nonni!

I’m Nonni, a 37 card making enthusiast from Finland. I’d love you to follow my blog Nonni’s Handmade Cards if you don’t already! I work as a clarinetist in a symphony orchestra for living and discovered crafting about 10 years ago after stepping into professional life... I needed a hobby to take my mind out of work stress and all real life challenges! I begun with home decor pieces and then moved into scrap booking and finally into card making. Nowadays Clean and Simple is my preferred style and I really enjoy coloring in too. One of the coolest journeys this hobby has taken me to has been creating Time Out Challenges with my good friend Sandie. I’m also in the DT of Inkspirational Challenges and Less Is More. When I don’t work or craft you can find me hanging out with my schnauzer Rafa, doing some sports, enjoying the company of my friends or sipping red wine and being just lazy at home! :) Thank you Addicted to CAS for inviting my to guest design in this fun challenge and happy crafting everyone!

Before we begin, let's review the rules of the challenge:

Congratulations, Nonni! This is what Barb had to say about your card:

I love how Nonni used a textured card base and how she clustered her images in the ‘sweet spot’ on her card. The ombre effects of her watercoloring with Brushos is so striking with all those gorgeous shades of blue and her vellum sentiment strip is sheer perfection! Congrats to you, Nonni!

Hi there, CAS Addicts! It's time for another fun challenge, and this time Susan has chosen the code word 'Teal'.  Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor, and Kylie is offering a $20. gift card for the winner!

  Also, we have an amazingly talented Guest Designer...Gerrina


Hi I am Gerrina.
Most of you know me from My Blog. I live in a small town near Eindhoven in the Netherlands. You can easily say I am a stamp-addict now, but I never would have dreamed I would be after buying just some text-stamps to use in my photo albums in 2011...
So I started stamping in the summer of 2011. I love to learn new techniques and how to work with new materials. The CAS-style is one of my favourite ones, but I also like to get messy in my Art Journals and I still like to scrap in my photo albums and planners and like to make books and Mixed Media canvasses. The only condition is that I have to work with stamps and/or stencils...
Playing with colours and paper is a perfect way for me to get my head clear from all daily things and from all the ideas that I get by looking at a stamp or stencil or the beautiful projects shown by all of you in blogland...Here is my card for the code word 'Teal'

Now we turn it over to you to see your take on the code word 'Teal'! Have fun creating, and don't forget to keep it CAS!

We also have a special Guest Designer for this challenge...Rosali from ilovestamping, who won a previous challenge but was unable to be our guest at that time. 

Hi there! My name is Rosali! I’m a 30-something crafter, I live in Northern Germany with my hubby and you might know me under my social media nickname ilovestamping. Because I just loooove stamping, ha! :)
My little addiction with cardmaking started in 2014-half a year later I joined Instagram and met so, so many wonderful crafters and even good friends there. It’s amazing to connect with people all over the world through this hobby! Stamping and cardmaking to me is not only a perfect way to unwind and create something pretty but also to spread kindness through handmade happy mail!
