Week 33 - 1000 Challenge - Anything CAS Goes

What wonderful doubles we saw last week, once more choosing our ShowCASe will be a difficult job, but watch this space for our choices later in the week.
Now we are going for the 1000 submissions.
so 
Anything CAS Goes
If you make more than one card for us, you will need to post them on your blog and submit them separately, for each card to count towards our target!
You are doing SO well, thank you all!

We hope that the scope of the challenge doesn't leave you wondering what to do... you could use any of our previous challenges as inspiration, CASE a card which has given you inspiration (as long as you credit the original crafter with the design), or just do your own thing.
You may enter as many times as you wish as long as each submission is with a different creation.
Let's go LIMettes, how many can we reach?
We may leave blanket comments to show that we have visited you, so we hope you'll excuse that on this occasion.

To achieve perfect placement of coloured blocks, I placed scraps onto the square of card [13cm x 13cm] I then printed the sentiment on the computer, Cherish font.
I embossed the blocks with my Crafts Too embossing folder, keeping them in the same order as the finished card to achieve the following on design. The fabulous butterfly, I've had forever! One of my first purchases. It's from Creative Stamping, I doubt it's still in production.
The colours are Stampin' Up: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and the new Calypso Coral.
The butterfly was stamped onto a scrap piece of card, coloured and and I cut out the wings only. I curled them  for a 3D look. The body is stamped directly onto the card base, using a Stampmajig for perfect placement.


The second card is made in much the same way, but, the sentiment was stamped from an old SU set. 
the colours are from Stampin' Up again.
Pear Pizazz, Melon Mambo and another new one Island Indigo. I finished off with my favourite bling! 
Can I add that Chrissie and I show each other our cards, I showed her mine PRE bling! lol
I bought the rhinestone embellishment here.

Here is a really simple little card with a gorgeous digi image from A Day for Daisies, aren't these ducks just the cutest! I think it would be a prefect for anyone having triplets too, but you don't need one of those cards every day! It's a Stampin' Up sentiment.
This one is a simple little card using a Stampin' Up Delightful Decorations bauble stamp adapted to make a vase. I simply put some sticky tape across the bottom of the stamp before inking with Versamark, and then pulled it off before stamping. I embossed the image with Fine Detail Gold embossing powder. This was then punched out using the SU bauble punch and the bottom of the card cut off leaving a similar border as around the rest of the stamp.
The flower is from SU's Silhouette Sentiments and the sentiment from SU Happy Moments.
The border punch is Martha Stewart.

  28. Crikey you are certainly on your way, to your target, well done and good luck :)

  29. My card is posted and I sure hope to get another one done. Chrissie - I can't get to your blog! I couldn't leave you a comment last week either as the same thing happens. Your blog loads, then flashes, then there is a tan topper and burgundy bottom part on the screen as well as a pretty black chandelier. But everything else on the blog disappears at that point. I was surprised that it is doing the same thing this week too. So - I'll leave you a comment here ... LOVE your cards with the bits and pieces. Wow - so creative! TFS
    Cheers, Karen

  35. Well I've left it rather late but have managed to upload some cards (thought I'd better as I think it might have been my comment on 1000 followers that sparked this challenge). Fantastic response from everyone and such stunning cards too, as ever thank you to everyone for such fabulous inspiration.

  37. Oh no, I just managed to complete two cards, but I added them to the post I did earlier as there where only 5 mins to go, but I'm afraid linky wouldn't allow it and there is only a minute left and I can't do a post in that time. Soz
