This is my first attempt at Smooshing, 
I really liked how my card came out when it was CAS. 
But, as usual, I couldn't leave well enough alone, started adding schtuff ~ do I need an intervention?  ;-) 


  1. pretty card, great choice of colours.x

  2. I think your card is just beautiful Helen, and adding "schtuff" is just too fun!! :0)

  3. Helen, this came out great! Wasn't yhis a fun technique? Your added "shtuff" is perfect!

  4. Your first attempt is gorgeous! Love this and you crack me up ,we all keep adding stuff!

  5. Haha, you might just, Helen! But I do love it! I think you rocked the smooshing technique! Here's what I do if I'm not sure if I want to add more to a card: I stop and take a photo when it is very CAS and then I add extra bits, usually with removable tape and I take another photo (or just set it across the room and look at it) and see which I like best! At that point, I can undo and go back to CAS if that's the one I end up liking better (which it usually is - you know me!). Hugs, Darnell

  6. Very lovely Helen! You did an awesome job...
