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.
Thank you for stopping by. Happy holidays!

Hi everyone. It seems 2017 is flying by. I can’t believe a week has gone by already. Anyway, with Christmas now over, I thought I had to pack away my winter themed supplies, but that is not the case. YAY🎉 For today’s card, I made a CAS winter miss you card. I also got to check off two more new stamp sets from my NBUS list. 😁
I stamped the little critter onto some X-press It paper that my friend Christine gave me to try. I coloured with Copics and then die cut it out with the matching die.
The Hello sentiment was die cut also from X-press It paper and coloured in Ombré blue to match parts of the hat that were also coloured in Ombré blue. The tree branch was die cut from a scrap of white cardstock, trimmed down and then coloured with Copics.
Next I die cut a white Stitched Rectangle and then stamped the miss your face sentiment in Archival black. I sponged some Pool Party ink for the sky background. I mounted the stitch panel onto a top folding white card base and then assembled the card. I added snow with a white gel pen. As a finishing touch, I added glossy accents to the Hello sentiment and created icicles hanging off the branch. To make the icicles glisten, I sprinkld on some Dazzling Diamond glitter. I love that image and pairing it with that sentiment makes me laugh.
