My first CAS Challenge card

There seems to be a lot of 'firsts' going on in this blog - and I guess part of the reason of starting a blog was so I could participate in challenges but the main reason was I seem to have a lot to type about Stampin' Up! and Facebook was somewhat constricting at times.

Without further ado here is my first CAS (Clean and Simple) card.  There are various degrees of CAS and I think my card may be pushing the boundaries today a little as it has a couple of layers, but there are no ribbons, embellishments, frills etc, so I feel it qualifies - at least I hope it does!

Ever since I started this blog I'd been wondering how to link pages to this site and it finally occurred to me to ask my teenage son!

 You can view the CAS challenge here.   (Thanks son for showing me how to add links to my blog!)

What I used:

Card:  Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Play Date DSP

Ink: Chocolate Chip

Stamp sets:  Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Fox and Friends

Tools and other fun stuff:  Stampa-ma-jig, 1 3/4" circle punch, corner rounder punch, 2" circle template and cutter (non SU)


  1. Love it Frances. That is a perfect CAS card. Have you worked out how to link this post to the CAS site?

  2. Yes,I think I have, I copy the link for this post in their Mr Linky? Is that right?

  4. Oh my word, this is just TOO CUTE!!
