ATCAS #31 - LOVE

We are back with a new challenge at Addicted to CAS . It's that time of the year when we feel love is all around. Yep you got that right, the very apt code word for this week is LOVE selected by our very talented Jaydee. She is also the host for this challenge. We also have brilliant Guest Designer Anni Lerche joining usAnni loves paper piecing and resist techniques. We know you'll enjoy seeing her designs!  You can see her projects by clicking here, Annikarten
Our winner will win 5 free digis from our amazing sponsors Stamp Art Design

I am glad that so many challenge blogs are having challenges with the love theme, it is helping me to build up my Valentine card collection :) So here's my card...
To make this card, I created a mask from card stock using Nestabilities heart dies. I then placed it on my card base and positioned it with some washi tape. Then I used a scale n pencil to draw horizontal lies where I will stamp the sentiments. I then used stamps (from Paper Sweeties - you make me smile set) inked it up with Memento ink (Grape jelly) and stamped them across the left side of the mask, some times offsetting the mask. Then I lightly inked the same side of the heart. I then removed the mask. Stamped butterflies (from Martha Stewart set) on vellum and fuzzy cut them. I also did some second generation stamping of tiny hearts (from Recollections Jar set). Then I adhered the vellum butterflies with glossy accents, added pearls to finish my card.

I would like to enter this card for the Time Out Challenges DT call. This is a new challenge blog that I am loving and I am sure you would love it too :) I must say the twist they have added to each challenge is their Rota is simply amazing, it is sure to intrigue ur creativity :)

I am also entering this for CASology Week 80 - PURPLE and CASE Study #176 - Donna Mikasa. I am big fan of her creations and I had to participate in this one :)
 

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 :) and thank you for visiting my blog.
