CAS at Addicted to Stamps and More

Well they do say third time lucky and after throwing my first two attempts today in the bin I finally made a card for the Clean and Simple challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.

I always find this type of card difficult to make but like scrapbooking I am learning here at ATSAM

Wonderful samples as always for inspiration.

Made a simple topper with a round splodge in grey and then cut-out a swirl with a Marianne designs die.

I added a lilac paper to the back of the cut-out space then stuck the swirl onto the edge of my topper. The card is half patterned with a Cuttlebug Folder and then I just added a jewel to finish it all off. I had to take a picture quickly before I distressed the raised bits and added a flower or even two. I haven't really added anything else--not yet.


  1. How simple is that? Yet, it is stunning, loving your idea of adding the stronger colour behind the die cut and leaving the remainder white.
    Thanks for sharing with us again at ATSAM. Caz

  10. What a lovely idea for a CAS card - I can sympathise with making more attempts at this style - grubby marks are always a problem for me but hopefully we improve as we go along so less gets thrown away!!
