AAA CAS Card Challenges is up and running again after a nice break. I had some time to try some new stuff. I wanted to conquer acetate. So I've armed myself with white & black staz-on inks and purchased heat resistant acetate from Judikins. I wrecked a few sheets, but I feel I have the hang of heat embossing on acetate now.

I'm loving skinny acetate shakers! I bought some fun colors of flat sequins and filled my cards just before I sewed the last edge together. They always fit in envelopes and they're not very heavy from foam tape.

My first card was created for AAA Cards, game #32 LOVE LOVE LOVE.  

Big stuff happening over at AAA Cards too. This game's top winner wins a huge prize- 3 stamp sets from Cut & Paste! You should play, you never know what cool CAS card we'll pick.

And they're looking to add some fabby card artists with a Design Team Call Out! another good reason to place a card into our game 32!

AND~ we've got a rockin' set of DT inspiration cards for the LOVE challenge too! Please come by and check us out.

Second card in this design- it's a cutie too.
