CAS Kites for Three Challenges {Up in the Air Over You}

Just a quick post today!!  I wanted to try some of the fun challenges out there I always seem to miss!  We have a big weekend ahead so it was nice to create a CAS for fun! This card was very easy to make. I am trying hard to create CAS but it is a challenge for sure. I love the look of a white card base but I do not know what paper is the best for that CAS white base look. Any suggestions?

Stamps: Hero Arts {Right at Home} and SU! {Up, Up and Away}
Papers: SU! Bold Pattern Paper, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point
Inks: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point Marker for the hearts in the sentiment
Extras: Baker's Twine, Heart on the kite came from the Owl Punch


This card was created for the following challenges:
Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge-I flipped the sketch on its side
The Play Date Cafe-the colours (I tried to match them the closest I could)
CAS-ual Fridays-Paper Piecing-I paper pieced the kites

  1. What fun! It is a trick for sure to combine all three of the elements into one sketch but you pulled it of beautifully!

  3. This is really cute, Lesley! I have a kite card in progress on my desk right now. They are so fun aren't they?! :) Good luck on your CAS journey. White space totally stresses me out and I just can't do it. Love the look though!

  5. Love that blue striped paper and the paper pieced kites. Gina K. Designs makes a beautiful, heavy-weight white cardstock that words wonderfully for card bases.

  15. A CAS card is difficult sometimes, isn't it? You have to pare down your elements to just a few powerful ones, and that's such pressure. I use Papertrey's white cardstock, if that is what you mean in your question.

    These kites are SO cute! You did a great job with our colors, Lesley, and I am SO happy you came to play with us. It's really nice to see your creation in our gallery at The Play Date Cafe. :)
