CAS Christmas Card Challenge - September is time for a little Plaid

Hi Everyone, it's time for CAS Christmas Card Challenge, Colleen our host has asked us to pull out some Plaid for our cards.
Our Guest Designer is Melanie (Cards by Melanie)

I didn't have any Plaid Designer Paper or stamps so I googled plaid and it came up with some swatches that could be printed off. I stamped this cute Katzelkraft image on the base card and then stuck the Plaid printed paper to card stock using 6" Sookwang tape to make it a little stiffer and stamped the bag of toys. After colouring Santa and the presents with pencils I fussy cut the bag and paper pieced it on the card.
I think Sant looks quite cute with his Plaid bag bursting with presents😁

I used the Carabelle postage stamp corner to frame him and Joyfull Christmas from a Stampers Anonymous set.

I'm entering this for the following Challenges
Christmas with the Cuties - Christmas anything goes optional O Christmas Tree
Merry Little Christmas - Anything goes
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge
Craft Challenge -#610 Christmas

Paper: 130lb White, copy Paper
Ink: Versafine Clair (Nocturn)

Twofer Dogs

Hi Everyone, I wanted to join in with Darnell's Final Twofer Challenge, this month's theme is Dogs/Cats so I rummaged through my stash of dog stamps and pulled out a Colorado Craft Christmas set.
The first is a Christmas card is the stamp with a sentiment from the same set coloured with pencils.

My second is a fun card which I inked up the top portion of the stamp and then used some tape on the presents under the dog so I stamped just the dog. I then masked the dog and stamped the toadstool. 
I had to use the sentiment from Pink in Dog stamp set to go with this. He looks really guilty and the Rabbit knows what he did 😏 When I stamped the dog I forgot to include his tail so had to add my own (oops)

Card Recipe
Stamps: Colorado Craft, Lavinia, Pink Ink (Sentiment) Kitties Kits (Grass)
Paper: 110lb White, Black
Ink: Versafine Clair
Accessories: Coloured Pencils

CAS Christmas Mid Month Reminder

Hi Everyone, there's still time to play along with CAS Christmas Card Challenge.
You have until August 24th to find some Decoration and play along.

I used a Gelli print from my stash and stamped the IndigoBlu Snow Globe (I thing they may have discontinued this stamp) then stamped the cute little Penguin from Pink Ink Designs (We Three Kings Christmas Series). I used my Posca White Acrylic paint to go over the white areas of the the penguins and then fussy cut the globe and popped it up on some foam strips on this 5"X5" card.
A Really simple card πŸ˜€

Here is a close up of the Penguins.

Stamping Through a Stencil

Hi Everyone, CAS Mix up has a fun challenge running this month, they want us to stamp through a stencil. This is such a great way to combine your stamps and stencil and at the same time keep the card pretty CAS. I'm hoping this card fits as I've used a large stencil (Sweet Poppy - Abstract Circle Backplate) which covers almost all the card πŸ˜…. I've used some Lavinia Fairy Bugs and a Magenta Script background to stamp through the stencil.
I'll add the sentiment when I'm ready to use the card.
Edit to previous post-
I've created a more CAS version of the card using the same colours of Distress inks (Rusty Hinge, Prize Ribbon and Crushed Olive)

My first version 😏

I'm entering this at CAS Mix up - Stamping Through a stencil
and Darnell's NBUS- 29 challenge (my stencil and bugs)
