ATCAS #29 - DIE-CUT(s)

It's the very first Saturday of 2014 and we are back with a new challenge at Addicted to CAS . Here's wishing you a very Happy New year !! and for all our dear CAS lovers the code word this week is DIE-CUT(S) selected by our very talented and amazing Loll. She is also the host for this challenge.
We also have brilliant Guest Designer Nancy Littrell. Nancy loves creating CAS cards, so we know you'll enjoy seeing her designs!  You can see her gallery of work at Splitcoast Stampers by clicking here.  
Our winner will get a wonderful prize from our amazing sponsors Deedee's Digis

I am sure you all have plenty of Die cuts in your stash and also the dies, I wanted to use these star dies and embosser set I bought from Hobby Lobby. I simply love the embossed star. So here's my card...

To make this card, I was inspired by a few challenges Colors from Color Q #222, sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch #58, and theme at CASology Week 76 - PARTY and also theme at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - SOMETHING NEW. Yep a lot of challenges ;)

I stamped the clock (from Prima Stamp set) and created a look of clock tearing out of paper to show the arrival of 2014. I embossed and diet cut the star, lightly inked them with Hero Hues Chalk ink - Night. On my card base, I sprinkled Recollections gold glitter. Stamped celebrate (from Stamping up) with Archival Black ink. stuck all the elements together.Golden stars are from my stash :)

Our DT has come up with some amazing projects this week. Pop over to our ATCAS challenge blog here and take a peek. I am looking forward to the challenge this fortnight and am very excited to visit your blogs.

Have fun in creating CAS card :) with ur favorite die cuts and thank you for visiting my blog.
