Sparkle Creations Challenge #14: CAS

Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to a brand new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge! 

This week we are challenging you to create a CAS card, and if you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I've been embracing this style recently (I will admit, sometimes out of necessity, LOL!).  I am really suffering with an awful cold and a extremely painful and sore throat at the moment, so to sit and enjoy a bit of colouring and then pop the card together really quickly was perfect for me! 

For my CAS creation I used one of the brand new Holiday stamps that were released on Saturday - Holiday Emily.  I really enjoyed colouring her in traditional red and green with a splash of purple.  Next time I colour her I think I will give her a different look and a different coloured candy cane - perhaps a black and pink combo would look cool?

I do wish I hadn't used an embossing folder on the purple card, not because I don't like the embossing but because I always use Core'dinations Colorcore cardstock, and I don't think the lighter core showing through works.  Now that the new SU catalogue is out, I must stock up on the new card...just waiting for the finances to look a bit better first before placing my order, LOL!

Sparkle Creations challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen, and they will receive a SCRS rubber stamp. [In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation.]

Do pop along to my SCRS DT sistahs' blogs to take a peek at their beautiful CAS challenge creations:

  8. Stunning! Love the clean look and your marvelous colouring!

  9. hope you are getting better… sore throat is not a lot of fun its just uncomfortable and difficult to swallow.

    usually, i would take the Nim Jiom Cough Syrup (www.geocities.jp/ninjiom_hong_kong/index_e.htm ) which has a thick consistency formulation. it coats the throat and includes herbs that are particularly good for that application.

    i hope it works on you as well.


Thank you so very much for taking the time to pop by and for leaving me a comment! I hope you have a wonderful day! Hugs, Sem x
