A Bit Of Kindness

I'm in challenge mode today, so I took advantage of the mojo and made several cards.

Here's one:

Compared to that last card I posted, this card is pretty CAS, almost nekkid, even.  I followed the sketch from Can You CASE It:

and used the colors from the MFT color challenge:

And in case you can't see the red in my card, check out the flowers:

The MFT dies are solid, so I cut them first, then attempt to line up the stamped image. Because I know me pretty well, I cut multiples, usually three, to give myself practice opportunities. I needed all three this time, but not wanting to waste anything, I stacked up the mis-stamped ones under the colored one for some heft.

The sentiment is a sneak peek from a Hero Arts set that will be available November 1st. It was stamped here with Memento Luxe black and clear-embossed.

I think I like CAS more than a loaded-up card. Less fuss.

Thanks for stopping by!

Update: My card won a shout-out at Can You Case It!

Update 2: My card won the random draw for the MFT color challenge, and I have a gift certificate! Whoot! Thank You Mr Random Number Generator!

Some of the stuff I used:  Hero Arts Acts of Kindness (avail Nov 1st), Copics (0, N7, N4, C1, C3, C5, R39, G43, G24, YG63, B93, B97, B39), and the following:


  1. Oh so cute! Love that little mouse and the sentiment is great. Cute CAS card!

  2. Leslie, Love your take on my sketch :) I agree I work better doing CAS then layers. Genius use of the extra die cuts. Thanks for joining CYCI :) Eva

  3. I thought you didn't color! I love your coloring! Great CAS design.

  4. I thought you didn't color! I love your coloring! Great CAS design.

  5. Brilliant idea for the off-stamped die cuts! Because yes, I usually have a few also-rans. So cute, coloured and CAS!!!

  6. Ah.... solid dies make me nutso. They add so much work to things that half the time I could have fussy cut quicker. This card makes me happy. Love me those mousies!

  7. this is flat out adorable. Love that mouse.

  8. Love your take on this sketch! Thanks for joining us at CYCI.
