Perfectly CAS #1

Helllooooo! Every month on the 15th, there is a new challenge over at Perfectly CAS
Perfectly CAS? Yep, it's a new challenge blog and the designers and I are very excited to help inspire you.

Our theme for the next month is -

Here are my cards -

Card #1
Complete with a fingerprint smudge and a smidgen over the one third rule, I have still created a clean and simple card. By stamping at the bottom third and using a small sentiment, there is still plenty of 'white' space. Don't forget that 'white' space can be any colour card as long as there isn't anything stamped, glued, embossed, or embellished on that area.

Card #2
I masked off a section here with post-it tape. I quite randomly stamped my flowers within the third I was working with. I used a black pen and ruler to define that edge and stamped my sentiment above the line. Placing my sentiment above the line allowed me to 'cheat' a little but even with going over the one third rule, once again, I still have plenty of that perfect white space.

You will find heaps more inspiration over at the challenge blog. Please join us for our inaugural challenge!

I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - The Flower Challenge (Anything Goes), STAMPlorations (Anything Goes), STAMPlorations (CAS)
Card #2 - Stampotique #SDC331 (Flower Power)



  1. So glad to see I'm not the only one who makes cards with finger marks!! I'm incredibly clumsy when it comes to putting my cards together, thank goodness for sequins etc!!! Your colouring of the flowers is quite amazing, especially the purple flowers. You did so well capturing the highlights. Love the placement of the image too and I don't think you really went over the 1/3 very much at all. Its a wonderful card and I'm so happy you shared it with us at The Flower Challenge!!

  2. These are gorgeous, Kylie. I'm assuming you used your Polychromos here, your colouring is fabulous and I love the colours in your first card. Beautiful work xx
