Simple SplitCoast Challenge Creations

Hi everyone. Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for stopping by.

I wanted to share a few creations I've been making for SCS challenges the last couple of days.

* First, I made this for last week's CAS sketch challenge:

The paper is from Echo Park - Everyday Eclectic
The stamp from Close to My Heart - Celebration

* Then this is the card I made for the first challenge of the Spring Design Team Call for the CAS challenges:

The challenge was to use something wet, like embossing with heat set, paints, spritzes, etc.
I chose to use white embossing powder on kraft c/s. I stamped my CTMH doily stamp from the Simple Memories set in versamark ink then embossed in white and heat set it. I then used my tattered angels misting spray (dragonfly) to alter the look of the kraft c/s.

* Next I made a card for the Featured Stamper Challenge from yesterday. Nancy Littrell was featured. I loved looking through her gallery.

Nancy's card is a flower theme with a white card base. I kept the layout but went with a star theme. She used scallops on the right side of her rectangle. I went with pearls.
I cut the rectangle and stars with my Cricut.
The sentiment is from CTMH - Flower Pot

* Finally, today's CAS challenge is beautiful! It's pinterest inspired. Here's the pic we were to go by:
and here's my simple take on it:

The sentiment is another from CTMH - Card Chatter Sympathy
I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder (the swirly one....can't call the name) on a smaller piece of white c/s and then went crazy with my circle punches! LOL

Well, there they are....lots of eye candy....I hope you enjoyed. :)

Until next time...

Wow Melina! You've been busy! Love the CAS design to each of these! I think the one with the cluster of stars might be my favorite, but they are all FANTASTIC!
