The card I'm showing today is one I made back in April, but hadn't posted yet. It was a farewell card for a friend who was leaving the shop we worked in (I've since left, too.)
I am so hooked on the beautiful new Spellbinders dies! As much as I love the CAS layouts, I just can't help but flourish them up. With these gorgeous dies I can have my flourishes but with far less work. Sort of a CAS technique. The die set I used here is Radiant Rectangles.
I still love coloring with my Copics and have taken up CAS in some of my stamp images. Especially on a card like this one, a simple design surrounded by ornate die cuts, created a balance I was pleased with. These images are from Our Daily Bread Designs. The Bee Balm Flower and Hummingbird are simply colored with Copics. (I'll try to get back into the habit of keeping track of which colors I use.) ODBD also has a die for the hummingbird making it so easy to cut it out!
Scattered on the scrolls are tiny clear rhinestones. The cardstocks are red Bazzill and simple Georgia Pacific white #110. And that's all there is to it! My version of CAS.

Thank you for stopping by today. As long as health, home, and family issues stay in check, I plan to be back more regularly!
