ATCAS #44 - GOLD

We are back with a new challenge at Addicted to CAS . This time the host of the challenge is me and I am so very excited for that. I decided to go with the GOLD  as the code word. A touch of gold makes a terrific difference in the look of a card. Possibilities are endless in terms of how you incorporate the the gold, as sequins, gold embossing, gold paint, inks, thread or gold paper... you decide or wow us with something unique. We also have brilliant Guest Designer Lyndal joining us. Her creative style is unique, her card are both pretty and brilliant in design. I am already working with her in other two teams and so happy to welcome her here at ATCAS.  You can see her projects by clicking here, Ideas and Paper
Our winner will win five digis from our amazing sponsors Stamp Art DesignsI am sure a lot of you just love there amazing digital stamps :)

For my card, I decided to incorporate gold by heat embossing. Here's my card...
Firstly, I inked the card base and water stamped STAMPlorations Retro Mod shapes to create a flower. Then I heat embossed the sentiment. Added a scalloped white strip at the base along with two punched butterflies in white. To add to the gold theme I also adhered the gold sequins.
 

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.


I have another card to share. I wanted to play along the MUSE #78 - Bev Buenker challenge at the Guest designer is sweet and talented Bev of Happy Dance. She is so adorable and kind, she always encourages me with her sweet comments :) And her cards are always very pretty and perfectly CAS :) so here's my take on the Muse. Though the core of my inspiration was hello and the colorful strip on Bev's card. I always tend to combine challenges. So this one can be combined to a lot many :)
and here is Bev's card...
To make this, I added the rainbow gelatos on the chevron stamps, sprayed it with water and stamped multiple times on the water color paper. Once dried, I cut it out using a circle die to create the umbrella. To make the stick of the umbrella, I used a black twine. To finish my card I added the multiple layers of hello die cut and stamped tiny little hearts. also scored the edge to match the sketch.
I am also sharing this with -
2. CAS-ual Friday's #134 - TIC-TAC-TOE - I used chevron,white and twine

And your stitched scallop die is really, really sweet - also very tempting (I've had my eye on it for a while now...) Beautiful blend of those colors and am loving the gold embossed sentiment. Your Muse card is wonderfully and perfectly CAS!! I always enjoy seeing how folks interpret the inspiration photos, and you have really done splendidly with this beauty. Love the scored lines and your white-on-white 'hello.' Thanks for all your kind words Dee...you're such a sweetheart! And I'm so glad you played along with the Muse this week. Bev
