Addicted to CAS: Challenge #29 - Die Cuts

You're probably here from the CAS Challenge blog, and that means this is your first time visiting. Welcome!

 I just had to participate, because lately I've realized I'm a bit of a die nut. Sitting around playing with dies, using them to fashion something other than the original shape, really floats my boat. (Hints: the cup is three different sized oval dies; and the four leaf clover is a heart die.) It's a bit early for St. Patrick's Day, but that was my original thought. It also seems appropriate of other occasions as well.

My style is all over the board, so I'm not sure about my having gotten CAS just right. Would you be willing to tell me if my card is CAS, or not CAS? Oh, I would dearly love to know if there is a better spot for my sentiment?!

Thanks so much for visiting and I'll be seeing you on your blog.

Papertrey - Fancy Flourishes stamp set, Heart Prints stamp set and coordinating die, Ripe Avocado cardstock and dye ink, Flower Fusion #9 stamp set, Stamper's select white cardstock. 
Sizzix - Big Shot, Oval Nestability dies.
Miscellaneous - Stripped white vellum, gold pearlescent with white dots paper.


  1. Your sentiment looks just perfect there, Marcie!!! KNOW I'm no expert on CAS...But I think your clean lines and use of white space is definitely CAS! This is such a cheery card...anyone would smile at receiving it!!!

  2. I knew there was a special reason I love your cards Marcie...I LOVE using dies intended for one thing to make something totally different! Love your oval tea cups...such a smart idea. Very cute card!

  3. Hi Marcie. Your card is definitely CAS ... the trick is to have lots of "white" space (which doesn't have to be white, just open and uncluttered). Your background is perfect to show off your patterned paper die-cuts. Such a great design and it's always good to come up with other uses than the original for dies, etc. Thanks for joining us at ATCAS. Loll

  4. It's not too early for St. Patricks Day Marcie. You are ahead of the game now. I have one made just not posted. LOVE your CAS card....I am not of any Authority,but I this this is a beautiful. CAS card.. love the dies. You are so creative in the way you made this cup. Happy New Year!
