January CAS Winners & February CAS Reminder #1

Hi everyone.  Just a reminder that the February  CAS Challenge is now into it's second week.  There are so many fun ways to add embossing to your cards ... we hope you'll play along.

At Happy Little Stampers, CAS is defined as:  clean and simple design with one main focal point, lots of white (or open) space, and minimal layers and embellishments.

Before we get to the sample card for this week, I want to again thank everyone that entered the January CAS Watercolouring challenge at HLS.  We had an amazing turnout with lots of unique and creative designs.  A Pinterest board has been set up to show off all the entries and you can find it HERE.  All entries were added with the exception of a few blogs that didn't allow for pinning.  If you find that your card is missing, please email me at stampingwithloll@gmail.com and I'll add it. :)

Also, I wanted to share the top cards for the January CAS Watercolouring Challenge.  Here they are ...


(in numerical order)

Congrats to all the winners and thanks to everyone who shared with HLS.


Here are the CAS Embossed cards for this week ...


This card uses heat embossing with a mix of Frantage and embossing powder for the background and embossing powder for the sentiment.

And if you add your card to the Happy Little Stampers Forum as well, you'll automatically be entered for this month's random draw prize package.
