Addicted to CAS - Guest Designer - Challenge # 87

Its a very exciting day today as I get to be a Guest Designer for the Addicted to CAS  challenge!! The theme word for this challenge is:




I'll be honest, when I saw the word 'plaid' I immediately thought of Laura Bassen and her stamped plaid patterns but then I realised I don't actually have any stamps that would work for that. So it was on to Plan B, some patterned paper:


 We are supposed to be in the midst of Autumn at the moment in New Zealand but we have had week after week of hot, sunny weather, so the allure of a hot chocolate will have to wait for the cold weather to finally arrive!!

I die-cut the cup from some plaid patterned paper. I also die-cut the whipped cream and marshmallow from white CS and the chocolate pieces and hot chocolate from brown paint chips. I glued them all in place and then to the card front. The sentiment was stamped in black and I added lots of Wink of Stella to the whipped cream.

All the products I used are from My Favourite Things, the stamp set is 'Hug in a Mug' and the dies from the 'Hot Cocoa Mugs' set. The patterned paper is from Echo Park 'Everyday Eclectic'. 

I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge  where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.


You have two weeks to link your projects to the Addicted to CAS challenge and please pop over to the blog to see what the Design Team have created to inspire you.

Thanks to the Addicted to CAS Team for having me for this challenge and I will definitely keep joining in each fortnight!!

Take care
Shona

  6. You are definitely in the creative zone. Your recent production of A-maz-ing cards is phenomenal & this one is no exception. Think you should be glad you had that great plaid ppm.
