March CAS Card Challenge

Hey there, STAMPlorations friends! We'd like to thank everyone who played in last month's challenge. There were so many gorgeous entries in the gallery. We'll announce the winner and top picks this Sunday.

That said, here we are now with the March Challenge. Our CAS Card Challenge is pretty simple: it's straightforward anything CAS goes with the optional color twist. Create a clean and simple card with or without the color we've picked to include. And for March, yellow is the optional color twist. (You can use other colors with yellow.)

When linking up, please follow these simple rules: (complete list of rules is here)
  • Link up to 3 entries and link up to as many other challenges as you want.
  • To qualify for our prizes, you must display the challenge graphic in your blog post. (This is not required if you're linking from online galleries like Splitcoast, Flickr, or Pinterest.)
  • Link back to this challenge post (not just our main blog) to encourage others to play too.
The team will vote on the winner and top picks with the winner invited to guest design in a future challenge. (We'll supply the winner with a stamp and stencil pack to use too!) Then we'll randomly draw one player from all the entries to win some spending money on the shop -- a $15 gift certificate if STAMPlorations products were used or a $10 gift certificate if without. For the complete challenge guidelines, click here and scroll down to the CAS Card Challenge info.

We're excited to have a guest designer joining us this month -- the talented Loll Thompson of Stamping with Loll! Loll's our first CAS Card Challenge winner back in January. Take a look at her beautiful CAS card, as well as the awesome makes by the CAS design team!

Loll made a CAS card by fussy cutting a beautifully colored focal image and layering it over vellum and an artsy splattered background.

By going monochromatic, Toni created a bold CAS card.

Karola cleverly used partial stenciling and masking to create this beautiful one layer card.

A splash of watercolor and some spatters set off the butterflies in Linda's gorgeous CAS card.

A bold strip of colors and a simple sentiment make Ksenija's CAS card simply stunning.

Lisa's card is CAS sweetness with the layered patterned paper and die cuts + well-placed sequins

So how about you show us your CAS cards with or without the color twist? The linky is open until the end of the month and you can enter up to 3 cards with or without the color twist. You're not required to use STAMPlorations products (although we're always thrilled to see projects made with them). For the full challenge rules, click here. The CAS girls will be back in two weeks to share more CAS cards for this month's challenge.
