Hi everyone. I can’t believe it’s December 1st already! The crazy busy season has started. So I’m just sneaking in a CAS Christmas card.
Stamped the bird image with Memento black ink on a scrap of X-Press It paper. Coloured it with Copics then die cut out with the matching die.
Die cut the branch (retired Memory Box – thanks Nancy 😉) from brown cardstock. Die cut Noel twice from white scraps. Ombré coloured Noel with Copics and added clear glitter.
Adhered all the pieces onto a white stitched rectangle from my stash. Placed a snow stencil over the whole panel and applied white embossing paste. Once the paste dried, mounted the panel with foam adhesives onto a white top folding card base to finish.
Hi there. Took a quick break from design work and created a really fun CAS Christmas card. From here on out, it will probably be Christmas cards with the occasional birthday cards thrown in since I have some coming up.
Masked the image and the area above Santa’s ankles and sponged black ink for the ground area to anchor Santa.
Die cut you from red glitter cardstock and white heat embossed the sentiment on a black strip of cardstock. Fussy cut around the word list since it’s taller than the rest of the sentiment. Thought the red glitter diecut was enough, so no embellishments. Adhered the panel to a white top folding card base and it was done.
Hi there. Been lacking energy lately, but wanted to complete a card I started. I’m sharing a CAS Mix Media floral birthday card using one of my favourite sets from Clearly Besotted in one of my favourite colour combos. These flowers are large and fun to colour.
Stamped the flowers with Memento black ink on a stitched X-Press It rectangle. Coloured with Copics.
Masked the image and blended Smoky Slate ink with a Clarity brush through a Halftone stencil for the background.
White heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and mounted with foam adhesive. Added clear shimmer to the flowers to finish.
And that is it. Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy your day.
Hello again. I am quickly popping in with a second post today to share a non-traditional colour CAS Christmas card.
The penguin image was stamped with Memento black ink on X-Press It paper, coloured with Copics and die cut out with the coordinating die (my alignment was off, so I had to do some fussy cutting to try to even it out). The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.
The background was created by ink smooshing Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks on watercolor paper, then die cutting with a circle die.
A Zig Zag Stitched panel was die cut from watercolor paper and adhered to a white top folding card base. All the pieces were assembled and mounted to it. Clear shimmer and some sequins finished off the card.
And that’s it for today. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day or night wherever you are.
Happy Monday everyone. Today I am sharing a CAS birthday card created for my sweet crafty friend Nancy. Her birthday is today! Unfortunately, I didn’t send it early enough and she did not get this before leaving on her trip… so surprise, Nancy! Hope you’re enjoying your birthday getaway. For her card, I brought back my favourite Buddy image and paired him with a NBUS happy die. Love these triple layer word dies.
An A2 size stitched rectangle was die cut from X-press It paper. Buddy was stamped with Memento black ink then coloured and shaded with cool gray Copic markers.
The word happy and first layer were die cut from white cardstock. The happy word diecut was placed back into the negative piece to make it easier to colour it with a mini blending tool and distress inks.
The bottom happy layer was die cut from black cardstock and another happy word was die cut from white cardstock to be stacked. Birthday was white heat embossed on a scrap of black cardstock. The stitched panel was mounted to a top folding card base before the sentiments were adhered. Clear shimmer on the pastel coloured happy finished the card.
