A Trio of Cards

Hi there!  I've been scrambling this week to build up stock for an event on Saturday night.  I snuck into the Craft Cave for a couple of hours today and with the help of a few challenges I came up with three cards.  First up is a card for the Addicted to CAS Black, White & Gold challenge.  I debated with myself as to whether this is CAS or not but there's such a wide range of what is considered CAS and I don't think it's any busier than Vicki's gorgeous card so I'm going to enter it.  It was certainly simple enough to put together and I think it's pretty clean and graphic.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Basic Black, Brushed Gold) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Magnolias for Her) Altenew
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Striped cover plate, Butterfly) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  Recollections

Next up is an entry for the sketch challenge at Stampin' Celebration. I turned the sketch 180 degrees and I pulled out some old (circa 2009) My Mind's Eye papers and an oldie but goodie Lawn Fawn stamp set.  This card also came together quickly with some simple paper piecing and I'm always excited to use up some patterned paper! 

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (Love Me Do) My Mind's EyeStamps:  (Kite & sentiment from Sunny Skies) Lawn Fawn
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Gem:  Recollections

Last but not least is a card for CAS on Sunday and Colour Me.  CAS on Sunday wanted white plus one colour and Colour Me is having a monochromatic week so these two challenges worked perfectly together. There's only one tiny bit of stamping on this card and the rest is die cuts and a few gems.  Another simple card to put together.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Crisp Cantaloue, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamp;  (Sentiment from Super Script) Altenew
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Small Circle Burst) Memory Box, (Happy) Mama Elephant
Gems:  Recollections

You've been crafting hard! The first one is definitely CAS, and classy! The second one is so cute -- and yes, I too still have that paper. The third one is also clean and classy.

These are all fantastic. My eyes keep being drawn to that adorable kite--so I am voting that one my favorite amongst the trio.
