April STAMPlorations CAS challenge - Mid-month inspiration


It's that time of the month - when the wonderful DT over at STAMPlorations CAS challenge have produced another gorgeous batch of cards to inspire you to play along with our April challenge which is Anything Goes with an optional colour twist of spring green. Thanks for all your gorgeous creations that you have already linked up, we love seeing your fabulous work. Remember, you can link up to three cards per challenge! You don't have to use STAMPlorations products to take part, but if you have any, we would love to see them used.

For my card I thought I would go ultra-CAS and I used the fabulous Sugar Rush stamp set. I stamped the macarons and coloured them with Copics and stamped the fun sentiment in black. Then I added Glossy Accents to the macarons to give them a glossy sheen although it doesn't show very well in the photo. Now it's over to you to show us your beautiful creations!

Don't forget to add the challenge badge in your post
if you are linking up!
I am linking up with the following challenges:
The Challenge - rainbow heart inspiration image
AAA Cards - Anything Goes
Fusion Card Challenge - rainbow umbrella inspiration image (I didn't play along with the sketch this time)
One Layer Simplicity Challenge - As You Wish (anything goes)


Card: 300 gsm linen textured card 
Stamps: STAMPlorations Sugar Rush
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics 
Other: Stampin' Up Glossy Accents 

Disclaimer: I have received some STAMPlorations products for free in exchange for creating cards for the challenge. All opinions however are completely my own. As you can see by browsing my blog, I have been using STAMPlorations products (which I bought myself) way before my time on the DT and I wouldn't recommend them unless I absolutely loved them myself.
