October CAS Cards Challenge

Hello crafters! Welcome back to the STAMPlorations CAS challenge. I hope you have your stamps, sponges and brushes ready for a new season of STAMPlorations challenges.

You will see there are some changes this season. All three new and improved STAMPlorations challenges (Theme & Photo Prompt, CAS and Stencil) will launch on the 1st of the month and you have all month to play along. There will be some additional inspiration for all three challenges mid-month. And of course, our Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge will continue as normal! Similar to last year, we will reveal the winners of the prizes on the 10th of the following month, so don't forget to check in then to see if you are one of the winners!

There aren't too many rules to keep it easy to play along. You are challenged to create a CAS card with or without the optional color twist. Remember to link to this blog post and display the challenge graphic to be eligible for the prizes. You can use any craft products you want, but if you have STAMPlorations stash, we would love to see what you create with it. And of course the most important rule - have fun!

The first optional color twist this season is any shade of orange.

If you play, make sure you include the graphic below in your post and link back to this challenge post in order to qualify for our prizes :o) Please also read our simple rules, which you'll find toward the end of this post.

Now let's see what the girls in the CAS design team have created. Carol got so carried away with our orange theme that she created not one, not two but three cards to inspire you!





Inspired to create your own CAS cards? Link up below! Please just keep in mind these simple rules:
  • Create a clean and simple card with or without the optional color twist.

  • You must display the challenge graphic in your post (if linking from your blog) and link back to the challenge post (not just the main blog) in order to be eligible to win (and receive the corresponding prize).

  1. I will be working on more CAS this years and I need practice - or at least that is a goal. Thank you for the CAS challenge and the lovely work by the Design team - always an honor to enter! Have a blessed day!

  2. I've been in a CAS card mood lately, and orange goes with fall just perfectly! Thank you for the DT samples and another fun challenge


Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
