Some CAS with DCWV

Hi everyone!  Well, the time has come for me to do some serious cleaning of my craft area.  Yes I cleaned out before and found lots of stamp sets to sell, but this time I got SERIOUS, I cleaned out all my paper -including my SU! DSP and embellishments!  GASP.  Oh man, there is nothing harder than parting with the long retired Rebecca, Loves Me, Spring Flowers and all the Print Patterns from SU!.  Even though I haven't used them in YEARS, I just couldn't part with them, kwim?

I also collect, I mean bought and used, DCWV mat stacks.  I love them!  Their colors, patterns, and glittery goodness just makes me smile.  BUT, I have too many and alas, I am getting rid of them too.  BUT before I put them in the donation pile, I wanted to make 1 more card from each of them.  I chose recent layouts that were CAS and featured pattern paper.  Here is what I made last night:

From DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl:

From DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby boy:

From DCWV Garden Party:

From DCWV Luxury Stack:

Aren't these fun?  Lots of the things I am clearing out are barely used if at all (sad, I know).  I put some things for sale on this SCS Buy/Sell post.  Take a peek if you like.

Before I go, I wanted to mention that Rachel's store, Hope Stamps Eternal is having a 50% off all remaining supplies through tomorrow, May 31st.  The store is closing, so get the deals while you can!!

Other supplies used for these cards:
Stamps - Signature Greetings (PTI), Wishing You (Verve Stamps)
Ink - Black, Chocolate Chip and Soft Suede (SU!)
Paper - White and cream cardstock
Accessories - Taupe and Rose 1.5" silk ribbon, Prima flowers, Red Lippy, Pink and aqua rhinestones, Bliss pearls


  1. LOVE THEM ALL! Great idea to make 2 of the same card...I need to do that!

  2. Love the last two cards! The bows are fabulous with the flowers on them as is the layout.

  3. OMGoodness!!! I just kept saying, wow, wow, WOW, WOW!!!! Love the papers and that ribbon, but yes, I KWYM with all the paper...that's why the little pads are good for me...only 2 pieces of each and once they're gone, they're gone!! I have the large DCWV nursery pad too and I will never go through it!! LOL

  4. Welp, you're a stronger woman than I! But, I can't believe that you had the time to make so many cards first! Awesome, and I always admire your use of pearls/crystals/metallic pearls as embellishments!

  5. Morning Michelle! I love all of your cards - so fab! I love the DCWV paper - I own far too much too!

  6. Wow, you are crazy talented. Your CAS cards are just gorgeous.

  7. These are simply striking in their simplicity - love them all!

  8. these are just so sweet, michelle!

  9. These are all gorgeous Michelle!!! Love the ribbon on the last two and the colours of all of them are wonderful!!! If I had to chose just one, it would be the last one.....just! :)
