CAS-ual Fridays #88

Hi friends.  This weeks challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays  is to use letters creatively in your CAS project - die cuts, alpha stamps or stickers etc.   I remembered I had these old letter stamps in my drawer but when I pulled them out I noticed the ONLY letter that was missing was the "O".  Thankfully, it is easy to  replace with a Paisley Print heart.  :)    I am also playing along this week with the Less Is More's color challenge.  The colors are Kraft & Cream.  Happy 2nd birthday to Less is More!  This card also fits the Retro Sketches challenge.

Cardstock:  Very Vanilla
Ink:  Crumb Cake
Stamps:  Very old letter stamps (of course, I was missing the "O"  haha), Three Little Words (SU!), En Francais (SU!), Paisley Prints (SU!)
Accessories:  Pinking stacking squares (Wplus9), sponges

 I loved this color combo so much I decided to make two other cards using the same colors with different supplies.

Not sure which one I like better, how about you?  Sorry for the awful pictures, I have a hard time photographing Vanilla and white cards for some reason.  The last photo came out the best but I have no idea why?!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day! 

Cardstock: Very Vanilla & Crumb cake
Ink: Crumb cake (top card)

  1. A set of three beautiful cards. Especially love the paisley heart on the first one. Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. White is almost impossible to photograph and vanilla is even harder!!! I love each and every one of these. So elegant in these colors. The paisley heart and the script background are the perfect touch on the first card. Thanks for joining us at retrosketches!

  7. These are all absolutely fabulous, the gentle shades look awesome in your designs!
