Addicted to CAS Challenge #126 - Sparkle


Hello there, CAS Addicts! It's time for our last challenge for 2017 and to mark the occasion, our incredibly talented and lovely leader, Kylie, is our Hostess! Since most of us are creating holiday cards, Kylie has chosen 'Sparkle' for the code word...Perfect, right?

But, first let's review the rules for the challenge:

Kylie is also the owner of Happy Little Stampers and as the sponsor of this challenge, she is awarding the winner a $15.00 gift card to the store!


Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for everyday crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from everyday to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!

We have a very special Guest Designer for this challenge...
Janet (Swanlady) 

I am a South African, married to a wonderful Mauritian gentleman, have 3 adult children, and live on the small island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. It is so far from everywhere and so the internet and on-line challenges are a wonderful source of inspiration and learning. I have shared my love and passion for stamping here with friends and others for over 20 years, and we have grown quite a little stamping and scrapbooking community. I so enjoy the synergy of creating with others and have a group who stamp most Thursday mornings. When we share our ideas, we grow and develop faster than if we tried it alone.
I am on the DT of CASology.

Janet has created this beautiful card to inspire you:


Now, let's see the Design Team's take on 'Sparkle'

#19. Janet Swanlady

Congratulations, Janet! This is what Carolyn had to say about your card:
 I chose Janet's sweet holly card because it was a well-designed layout and embodied the basic elements of a CAS card with lots of white space and simple design. I loved the way Janet had created the 'holly' with a die-cut and gel-pen highlights - a modern take on holly.  Finally, the bow was delightful and the perfect colour to match the card.

Please take this badge for your blog:

Janet - Please contact Kylie at kyliepurtell@gmail.com and she will set you up for your prize.

Hi I’m Lindsey and am delighted to be joining the Addicted to CAS team for their latest Challenge. In-between my day job working in a school I indulge my passion for making cards and I also run regular craft clubs (some for children and some for adults) which allows me to play with lots of different artistic mediums and techniques. I joined the Uniko Design Team in January 2016.  I look forward to seeing your 'sweet' creations! 

Here is Lindsey's card:
