I've decided to try my hand at some Clean and Simple cards during this month's blog hop. So each day I will have one CAS card and one more-involved card. Here is my Oopsy Daisy CAS card:


Even though this card is a one-layer card, it is actually my least clean and simple card of the week. After stamping the bunch of daisies, I colored them with Copic markers. I added the sentiment at the top and drew the "frame line" around the edges. I couldn't help but add the butterflies. Thus, not so CAS!


A few weeks ago Splitcoaststampers had as its Friday Free 4 All challenge the Tent Topper card.  It had been a long time since I had made one of these cards, and I enjoyed it so much that my second card today is a Tent Topper card.  It's pretty self-explanatory.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my cards today. Be sure to check out all the team members' blogs and comment on them for a chance to win a free stamp set.   Lois (that's me), Vicky,  Anne,  Pat G.,

Lois, these are so pretty. I had to laugh when I read about your not so CAS card. I try really hard to make some of my cards CAS, but I'm not too successful. For me CAS is a relative term! I love the texture on you tent topper card!

Jane said...

Lois both of your cards are lovely. I love the tent topper! Great CAS cards!!!

Lois,
Two very pretty cards - but I have to say the second is my favorite with 2 ladybugs!!

Winnie and Patty said...

Wow Lois--both of these cards are beautiful!!! I love the 3 daisy card in multi-colors, but my favorite is the tent topper card. That's my new favorite technique right now!!! Thinking about doing a tutorial for Speedy TV on the technique! TFS

Jo4Him said...

Great cards. (You can still call your first card CAS even with the butterflies!) Thanks for sharing

Ravengirl said...

Cute, very cute! I have never tried a tent-topper card and this looks great!

Fond of Butterflies & LadyBugs. Your cards are very nice. Especially like how the flower petals pop off the paper for a 3D look.
