Hi there! Just poppin’ in for a quick reminder of this month’s Ornament challenge at CAS Christmas. The challenge closes on April 24, so there is still time to play along. Here’s my card.
This is the first year I’m making Christmas cards outside of the holiday season, so I thought I would incorporate a little spring rainbow into my card. 😉 The ornaments were stamped with Memento black ink on a stitched rectangle panel die cut from Neenah cardstock. Masking was used where they overlapped.
Coloured with Copics in rainbow colours. Drew in the strings with a black Copic Multiliner and a ruler. Black heat embossed the sentiment with clear glitter embossing powder. Mounted the panel with foam adhesive to a white top folding card base. Finished with clear shimmer on the ornaments for more sparkle.
Now It’s your turn to add your CAS ornament Christmas card to our gallery. If you need more inspirations, head over to the CAS Christmas blog HERE. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
Hello there. Just popping in quickly to wish you all a merry Christmas. Hope Santa was good to you and spoiled you rotten. I know I was… 😁 My card today was created with masking, stamping and heat embossing.
Hi again. I have more puppy Christmas cards to share. I love replacing letters in sentiments with cute critters, so I couldn’t resist with the Fluffy Stockings Stamp & Die set from Hero Arts.
The perfect letter J, don’t you think? Stamped the puppy on Neenah cardstock and on pattern paper with Memento black ink. Coloured with Copics, including shading on the pattern paper image. Next, fussy cut the stocking portion from the paper pattern stamped image and paper pieced onto the Neenah stamped image. Die cut image with the coordinating die.
Die cut Hero Arts Joy from black cardstock and the matching pattern paper to stack for dimension. Outlined edges with a black marker. For the background, blended distress inks in matching colours on regular white cardstock. I got rid of a lot of my colour cardstock this summer since I hardly ever use them and of course, they would have come in handy this time.
Created the snowy background with embossing paste and a Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamps. Die cut a stitched rounded rectangle from white cardstock and stamped wishing you in black. Assembled the card onto a white top folding card base and added clear shimmer to “joy” to finish.
I wanted the multi-coloured pattern paper to stand out, so I just used Kraft rather then blending a rainbow background.
This was actually my first card I did where I coloured with Copics instead of paper piecing. I switched to paper piecing thinking it would be quicker. I was wrong. 😂
And there you have it. Thank you for visiting. Happy Holidays!
Hi there. Just getting today’s card in under the wire for a challenge. So it’s a quick one and it’s another Christmas card, but this time it’s an interactive spinner card.
Pair skating was the idea behind my card!. 😉 Stamped the bears and ice from NBUS Lawn Fawn Beary Happy Holidays on X-Press It paper with black Memento ink, coloured with Copics, then die cut out with the matching NBUS dies.
A white A2 card base was created from Bristol paper. Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass distress inks were blended with a mini blending tool for the background and spritz with water to give a snowy look. NBUS Infinity Oval dies from Hero Arts were used to die cut the window opening on the card front and to create the frame.
The sentiment from Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree was white heat embossed on black cardstock. Silver thread was sandwiched between the bears’ paws and skates. Clear shimmer was added for some sparkle to finish.
Hi everyone. My card today uses two more new stamp sets (Freehand Florals, Hello Gorgeous) that I’ve had for a while now. My card was based on this inspiration photo.
I was inspired by the polka dots, flowers, gold colour and hello sentiment. My card would’ve been CAS except for the pattern background. So I guess it now falls in the classy and elegant category.
So the polka dot background is recycled packing paper from my Studio Katia order. It’s actually gift wrap tissue paper they used and I felt it was too pretty to toss into recycling. I adhered the tissue paper to white cardstock, then die cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle die.
I stamped the layering flowers with Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink (retired) and Melon Mambo inks. They were die cut out with the matching dies, then clear Wink of Stella was added for some shimmer. The leaves were stamped with gold pigment ink. The inner vein layer was heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder for some sparkle. I made sure the solid image was completely dry before doing that step.
The sentiment was heat embossed with the same gold glitter embossing powder on a Stitch Strip die cut from black cardstock. The polka dot piece was adhered to a top folding white card base before all elements were assembled. I was tempted to add some shiny gold sequins, but held off because they would have competed with the tissue paper.
