April 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. You'll find the winner and top picks here.

Now let's get the April Challenge started! 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 April, spring green is the optional color twist. (You can use other colors with green.)

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 Mac Mable of The Sweetest of Peas! Mac was our February CAS Card Challenge winner. Her CAS card this month is simply stunning!

Mac gave the outline image and sentiment a splash of color with a stencil and stamp to make this color-licious CAS card. 

For her CAS card, Toni placed elements on opposite corners and did some hombre inking.

Karola's card is CAS goodness with expertly masked and stamped images.

Ksenija's subtly inked background to compliment a focal image and simple sentiment make for a CAS card that has plenty of white space.

Linda used different shades of green and did some clever masking and stamping to create this eye-catching CAS card.

Lisa's card is CAS perfection with the stenciled background, large focal image and simply stamped sentiment.

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.
