For my sample card, I decided to make a stencil and create a one layer card. I used my hexagon punch and a sheet of acetate to create a mask that I can use again. I then sponged my bright colors for my first "layer." I stamped some images in between the hexagons. My second "layer" was stamped black images. I did cheat just a bit by framing in black and using a colored base, but this is basically a one layer card.

For my second card, I decided to try my hand at freestyle collage. I used the same stamp set but stamped then punched my images. I used a strip of Chevron embossed black as my leap off point popping the images and adding an arrow clip. I accented with some stickers and a couple of shapes in complementary colors, then stamped a couple of sentiments to round it off. Not sure how successful this is as a CAS card, but I like the look.
