Here's my attempt at a CAS-style card. Debby Hughes gave a great example and description of CAS earlier this week (See her showcase the style at the "There She Goes" blog).
I'm not sure if I left enough blank white space, and once I started stamping those candies I couldn't seem to stop! However, the overall effect is quite pleasing, I think.
I dry-embossed a simple border on the white card, used a Sizzix scalloped die for the mat and heat-embossed the sentiment with white pigment ink and powder. The stamp set is from {The Stamps of Life}'s December release, "candy2share." I stamped the background images and interiors and added shading with markers, then cut them out and mounted them with foam tape. Couldn't resist a little shine with Stickles, Liquid Pearls and Liquid glass, as well.
This is the "candy2share" set; it has a companion set which will also be fun to use, "jar4candy":
I can think of lots of things to put in that jar, or to leave it empty as a "miss you" card!
Happy stamping...


  1. Fabulous card, Caroline! I love the layers of candy.

  2. Great job on colouring the candy... looks good enough to eat!
