Two Cards Three Challenges

Greetings -  Its been raining here for a couple of days. A cool spell.  I love the rain, so this is happy time for me.  It's also perfect for crafting.

Up first - Fusion with a theme of Easter.  The graphic is below. I was drawn to those glasses filled with jelly beans as the inspiration for my Clean and Simple card.  I used bold colors courtesy of the Zig Clean Color brushes, and topped them with glossy accents for that nice hard shine.

Next up Seize the Birthday with more coloring with the Zig markers. No Toppings this time. This is for a friend of mine whom I worked with in California. She retired and moved ultimately to South Carolina. While in California at her birthday time the spring flowers were long gone; I think now I can get away with a spring flower birthday card for her.

Wink of stella and glossy accents are on the tulip petals.

Lastly both cards are being entered to AAA cards for their theme of CAS Shiny Spring.

Thanks so very much for stopping by!



  1. Sweet CAS cards, Cat! Those tulips are beautiful--love the addition of the GA! Hoping the tornadoes were going to miss you--saw your town on the weather map. We've had strong winds all day, but things have quieted down now.

  2. Love these cute, oh so CAS cards Cat! Have a lovely weekend! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx

  3. Plenty of empty 'white space' on these cards, super! Particularly loving the second one, but then I adore tulips and simple rows of flowers. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  4. Wonderful CAS cards, Cat! Love them both!

  5. cute CAS cards, Cat (how do you like all the alliteration??) - especially love how you added the glossy accents to the jelly beans!!

  6. So sweet, Cat! ;) Love those jelly beans. Thanks playing along with this cute card at AAA Cards.

    1. The tulips are lovely too! :) Great CAS cards. Lovely Clean and Simple result with lots of nice open, smooth white space. Both are perfect example of AAA Cards' CAS definition. :)

  7. These are both so crisp and CAS, Cat, and fabulous ... the sparkle and shine is brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)

  8. 2 perfect, CAS and stunning cards. Love the sparkle and those jelly beans on the first one for Easter. Superb designs on both and love all that 'white' space. Great takes on our spring challenge at AAA Cards and thanks for playing along with us.

  9. Cat, what darling cards...beautifully done!

  10. I just love how you focussed on the jelly beans in the inspiration pic and created this gorgeous CAS card! Thanks so much for joining us at Fusion.
