A CAS type of Friday

Hi everyone!  I hope that you're having a great Friday and are ready to get some R&R.  It's been a long week for me and I've been dying to do some crafting, but I just haven't had the time :(  Hopefully this weekend I can squeeze in some creative time, especially since I just got the new Whimsy Stamps February release (happening next week), which I'm sure you will all love!  Okay enough dilly-dallying and on to my Shop Pumpkin Spice weekly post.

For this week, I've decided to do a couple of CAS cards.  I find CAS cards to be really difficult to do.  I seem to fuss over them a lot more than I do my busy cards - isn't that strange?  Anywho, if you're like me and you struggle with CAS, then Shop Pumpkin Spice has some great products to help you cast your CAS fears away :)

The first card was easily put together using the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Papercrafting Kit (great deal at SPS, too).  The Earth Love collection is one of my favorite collections from Cosmo Cricket!  I love the whimsical/vintage feel and the colors are just perfect.  For this card, I distressed the edges using some distress ink.  The mini clothespins are from the SPS February Frilly Love kit.  They're so cute!  I tried to do some doodling around the edges the way Lou does it, but failed.  Hers look a lot better.

Supplies used: Earth Love Papercrafting Kit (on sale now at Shop Pumpkin Spice!); SPS February Frilly Love kit

The second card is pretty self-explanatory :)  The cute little duck stamp is from the Crafter's Companion Say It With Flowers stamp set and the die cut is from the Doodle Bug Sweet Cakes die cut sheet.  Edged was pierced with my paper piercer.
Stamp: Crafter's Companion Say It With FlowersColoring medium: Copics stamped with Memento Inkpad in Rich Cocoa; Paper: Paper Accents Smooth Matte white cardstock; Tools/other: "Hello" die cut from Doodle Bug Sweet Cakes die cut sheet, paper piercer, ATG Tape

That's it for me today!  For those that have a holiday on Monday, enjoy your long weekend :)  I sure will!
