ATCAS Spring!

Yeah, I wish!  Technically it IS Spring now but it sure doesn't feel like it. :( I know I just have to be patient. Warm weather is hopefully right around the corner!  At least I have all of these fun stamps and accessories to tide me over until it is actually nice enough to go outside.  The code word at Addicted to Clean and Simple is Spring and I paired it with the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.
I just love this cute little sketch and will definitely be using it again. I cannot get enough of the sketches they have on their site!  They definitely make for a stress-free card. :)  I was able to use up some of my goodies from the Spring Catalog too. I earned the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit earlier in the catalog year and decided to use part of the tag for a flower planter.  I also used one of the brads that came in the kit for my center flower, which I created with the Blossom Party Bigz Die.

The sentiment is from the first installment of the Paper Pumpkin kit, called Hey There. I just love that stamp!  There is a cool blotchy that I know I will be using a lot too. It will make perfect water droplets.  I almost used it on my card base but decided I wanted to keep it more CAS than that.  Since I moved the sentiment I added the scallops with my Borders Scoring Plate for the Simply Scored.  I really like the added dimension that it adds!

  12. Shana,
    I LOVE that cardstock color you used for your background. I often find it hard to use a colored background, but you did such a great job!
