Hi everyone. Normally, I don’t make Christmas cards in the summer, especially on the hottest weekend of the year so far, but after seeing a couple of Christmas cards today and checking out some challenges, I was inspired to create this CAS Christmas card.
The bear was stamped with Memento black ink on A2 X-press It paper, then coloured with Copics.
It was then masked and the snowflakes were clear heat embossed. Salty Ocean distress ink was applied with a mini blending tool to the background and a tissue was used to wipe off excess ink for a little emboss resist.
The camouflage die cut technique was used for the Warm Winter Wishes sentiment. This technique can be tricky with little pieces getting lost, but a good trick I found to keep everything together is to use Press n Seal.
For some sparkle, clear shimmer added to the camouflaged diecut sentiment finished off the card.
Hi everyone. I have a really easy CAS general card to share today. It was prompted by the new sketch today at CAS(E) this Sketch.
I found a leftover watercolor piece smooshed with Salty Ocean distress ink. It made me think of creating a summer sailing scene with it, so I smooshed Peacock Feathers on the bottom for the water. It was dried with a heat tool and then die cut with a stitched rectangle.
The sentiment was black heat embossed with Versafine ink and clear embossing powder. The sailboat and seagulls were die cut from white cardstock 3x to be stacked for dimension.
I wanted the water to glisten in the light, so I used a clear Spica pen to add sparkle. And that is it. Thank you for visiting. Have a great day!
Hi again. I wasn’t planning to post again today, but I decided to salvage the card I was working on yesterday for CAS(E) this Sketch #226. I smeared ink right at the end, was frustrated, so I walked away. 😂 Having fresh eyes today really helped to figure something out. 😉 Here’s the sketch.
And here’s my card.
All stamping was done with Memento black ink on a white X-Press It Wonky Stitched Rectangle. The monkey was stamped first, masked, then the branchwas stamped next. They were coloured in with Copics.
Masking, a mini ink blending tool and Salty Ocean distress ink were used to create the sky area. It looked too plain, so I went back with a DIY diecut cloud border stencil to add some subtle clouds.
I wanted to stamp “hang in there” for the sentiment, but I couldn’t remember which set it was from, so I stamped what’s up? instead. A few clear sequins finished off the card. Thank you for visiting Have a great day!
Hugs was die cut 4x from white cardstock to be stacked for dimension. It was Ombré coloured with Wilted Violet distress ink and a mini blending tool. Squeezed Lemonade distress ink was used to shade the background.
Glossy accents on the toucan’s beak, clear glitter on the hugs diecut and a few glitter gumdrops were added to finish. Thank you for visiting. Have a great day!
