ATSM Challenge #151 – AG

    Addicted to Stamps and More!

Wow! What an exciting day! Things sure are buzzing around here at honeybeelane! I’m so happy to be joining the ATSM Design Team AND the HLS Sketch Challenge DT for the first time today! This week’s ATSM “Anything Goes” Challenge is a favorite at Addicted to Stamps and More.  This week our sponsor is Stamplorations.

The prize is a $10 gift certificate for the store.

Get ready! I am so excited to be joining the ATSM team that I made 6 different cards for this post! 🙂 This first card was made with the Artplorations Bubble stencil.

IMG_7067editedI know, 6 cards may be a little much, but my excitement is “bubbling over” into my card-making! 😉

Next, I made a whole bunch of cards using the ARTplorations Stencil, Shower of Flutters. The more I use this stencil, the more I love this stencil! For this first butterfly card I also used Trendy Butterflies stamp set.

I made a set of rainbow cards with this stencil too.

Slide10Did I mention that I LOVE this stencil? If you’d like, you can see some other cards that I’ve made with this stencil here and here.
 I used nearly every last scrap of the butterfly background paper that I made.  I liked it too much to throw it away! Please see the following slide show for more details of how I made these cards.

I’m working hard at getting better at the CAS design style. It’s not easy!

Places I’m playing:

X, Red Heart

Here, I have another card inspired by this week’s fun Fusion Challenge: Heartful. This card was also designed with ATCAS’s Challenge: Hugs & Kisses. I am also entering this into Less is More’s “Little Ones” Challenge.

“X” is a little one with a big meaning!

I used Fusion’s inspiration picture and a little of the sketch in my design.

 Some aluminum foil adds texture to this CAS card.

Time Out’s challenge #23 is Valentine’s Day With the Optional Twist of Hearts, so I’ll be playing this one over at Time Out.The embossing and the heart also remind me of Muse’s Julie B’s cute Valentine’s card, so I’m linking up over there too.I am also going to play this over at Less is More’s “Little Ones” Challenge. I like the little details provided by the two embossing folders that I used for this card. Also, X’s & O’s are little things with big meanings. 🙂

I used Fusion’s inspiration picture and maybe a bit of the sketch in my design.

 Some aluminum foil added texture to this CAS card. I think that it turned out to be a nice masculine card.
