Decided to try for this challenge and had fun coming up with my effort …

Challenge #7 – Die Cuts
Challenge #180 – Circle

One of my stamping buddies makes absolutely gorgeous CAS cards and I decided to emulate her style. For this card I used 3 die cuts, the Sketchy Rings from Memory box, a feather die by Simon Says and the matching die for the bird from GKD set called Happy Spring. I also use 2 sentiment stamps from an older set by SSS.

After stamping the bird I coloured him with my inktense pencils and a Sakura pen to enhance the edges of the wing and breast. Then I die cut him. Die cut the other elements and glued them as shown. Added the bird. I curved the small sentiment to follow the curve of the ring and stamped then I did the same with the bigger stamp. I’m pretty happy with the result even if I do say so myself. It is an ‘any occasion’ card too.

    1. thanks my friend. It is a bonus for me if I like something I make but when others like it too, it is a gift.


  1. I’m trying – the thing is that all he white space sometimes unnerves me and I want to add things. It is really hard not to.


  2. This is beautiful Johanna and perfect for the Perfectly CAS challenge! It also fits the Addicted to CAS challenge theme which is circles! Thanks so much for sharing this beauty!

  3. Thanks Angie. Thanks too for suggesting the Addicted to CAS blog, I did a quick edit and added it there as well. I hope it isn’t considered back linking but think it is okay because I only added it a day ago.


  4. Very pretty card. I love all the circles and I especially love how you curved the sentiment around a circle. Very clever! Thanks for joining us at Addicted to CAS.
