CAS Colours & Sketches - Colours!

Hey & Happy July!

Welcome to another challenge and a new month at CAS Colours & Sketches. A new month means a new hostess and this month Cathy is hosting the challenges.

As usual we are starting things off with a colour challenge HERE and Cathy has chosen a couple of the NEW Stampin' Up! In Colours to pair with an older colour...

I'm just LOVING the new Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst, they are so fresh and vibrant colours. So this is how I used them...

I used the two new colours on last weeks card HERE and had a couple of pieces of die cuts left over, so I grabbed them and modelled my card design around them. With the vibrancy of the colours I instantly thought of Explosion! (due back in stock on the 15th July) and Explosion! Additions clear stamp sets and set to work stamping the explosion in Island Indigo and the WOW! in black and colouring it in to match.

Both the explosion and the WOW! are adhered to the card using foam adhesive, so quite a bit of dimension on this card. I added a subtle sparkle of clear Wink of Stella to the WOW! quite hard to see in the photo and added some of the new Glitter Enamel Dots to finish. 

That's all from me today, if you need some more inspiration using the sketch be sure to pop by the CAS Colours & Sketches blog HERE and see how the DT and Guest Designer have used the colours.

Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Such a striking card, love the sentiment! Cathy x

  2. Love how you combined last week's and this week's challenges. Popping the sentiment over the "explosion" is a very clever idea. Fiona x

  3. definitely a "WOW" card... awesome!

  4. This is fabulous ! I can see this in several color variations.

  5. Awesome card! I love the lines around the explosion.

  6. A real 'Wow' card Beverley - your colours and exploding sentiment really pack a punch!
