Pinch Me!

Say hello to the newest member of the CAS Fall Design Team over at Splitcoast!  Last night was the reveal and I was sitting on the sofa with my daughter, anxiously awaiting the names to be announced.  There was a scavenger hunt going on and my daughter and I were scouring the DT galleries looking for the cards to fit the list.  We were so engrossed that I missed my name! 

Anyway, I wanted to share with you the cards I made for the challenges.  The first one was to create a project using this pillow as our inspiration.  I really liked the glow around the pillow and set about trying to recreate it by using a nestabilities die as a mask and sponging.  Then I used second generation stamping for the harlequin pattern on the side as well as the text.  I then embossed my main image with black detail embossing powder.  This card got me to the next round and I was so happy.  If you want to see the other entries you can do so HERE.

If you follow my blog you know that I already posted my second project, Express Yourself, which was a card inspired by your favorite TV show; in my case, Project Runway.  If you want to see the rest of the entries for this challenge you can see them HERE.

My final entry was an interpretation of the word "Boo".  When we got the challenge, my first thought was peek-a-boo, so I created a Halloween themed card with a little peek-a-boo spider.  I embossed a scrap of black sparkly cardstock I had in my stash with the Tim Holtz Sizzix folder and then punched out a hole for my little spider.  I added some fibers I had on hand for the finishing touch.  The result is a CAS card with a lot of texture but not a lot of bulk.  You can see all of the finalists' entries HERE.

What a way to start September!  I am so excited to be chosen and I am really looking forward to working with this talented group.  Be sure to check out the fabulous artwork of the other two ladies who were also chosen last night:  Taylor and Patricia

There is a new CAS challenge every Monday and I hope some of you will play along.
