Hello! I have a few cards to share today inspired by Anna Kossakovskaya's CASometry Challenge. Anna is one of my very favorite cardmakers, and I love how her challenges always aim to help you get more use out of the stamps you already own. This year the overall theme is "Randomizer". For Stage 1 all you have to do is randomly select a stamp set and use it as the main focus on your card as well as one geometry shape (mine is a rectangle). Fun, right? Because I know the order of my stamps fairly well, my husband randomly chose "the 11th one in the middle box". :) The stamp set was Clearly Besotted's An Apple a Day. It's been far too long since I've used it, and it actually was the perfect random set because Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up. I'm ahead of schedule now. Yay!
This is my official card for the challenge. I loved all the apples so much I stamped all of them. :) I created the sentiment with Neat & Tangled's Journaling Alphas Dies.
My final card made use of all the scraps and pieces that didn't make it onto the previous cards. The only thing I had to do was blend ink behind the alpha negative. It was pretty awesome to not have any leftovers when it was time to clean up. Here's a quick shot of the supplies I used.
Thank you, Anna, for hosting such a fun challenge. I had a bunch of fun making these cards and dusting off a set that hasn't seen ink in quite a while. It made me remember why I bought this cute set in the first place.
Hope your week has been full of lots of smiles. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
