Hi everyone. I'm back with a reminder that the May CAS Challenge at HLS is Die-cuts and/or Punches. There are lots of great ways to use die-cuts or punches on your cards and we hope you'll play along.
At Happy Little Stampers, CAS (clean and simple) is defined as:
- one main focal point
- lots of white or open (no pattern) space
- minimal layers
- minimal embellishments
Before we get to the sample cards for this week, I want to again thank everyone that entered the April CAS Stenciling challenge at HLS. The gallery is full of beautiful and creative cards. As always, it was a tough job to narrow it down to a few. Here's the winner and favourites for April. :)
(in numerical order)
Congrats to all the winners. Make sure you grab your badge!! :) Thanks to everyone who shared with HLS.
Here are the CAS Die-cuts / Punches cards for this week.

Intricate die-cut card front exposes a panel made with the Saturated Watercolouring technique.
This card is made with all die-cuts, layered to create a spring garden. Sponging was added to the sun, clouds, flowers and grass to add shading and dimension.
Simple die cuts with pops of colour make for a quick and easy card
