CAS Christmas Mid Month Reminder

Hi Everyone, it's time for CAS Christmas mid month reminder. 
It's time to pull out your snowmen  stamps or dies so we can have snow much fun seeing your cards.


For my card I used a Memory box die which die cuts the outline of the snowman. 
I coloured his hat black; his out outline silver using a Molotow Liquid chrome pen; twig arms  brown and his scarf red before popping them back in. His eyes and nose were also coloured and his buttons are pearl pen for dimension.


The sentiment is from Jane's Doodles and worked perfectly with my snowman 😀

Switching from Feedburner to Follow it.

I see that many of us are now having to decide what to do about Feedburner no longer being supported by Blogger.  I like a few others have opted to use Follow it-
 
The reason I chose" Follow it" was that I could port over my followers and the only thing you might be asked to do is to confirm you still want to follow. 
 
As I'm still in the process of doing this some of you may get 2 emails one from Feedburner the other from Follow it.
So far the help has been great, I've just submitted my amended follower list and I'm hoping to disconnect Feedburner by the weekend.
 
What I did learn was Feedburner allows a lot of spam/bots or whatever they are called Followers. This is what they look like on your email list, they just need to be deleted after you download your list.
 The instructions for down loading your list of followers from Feedburner is in the warning from Feedburner and in Follow it's instructions for using the software.
 You can only upload a max of 100 followers to Follow it yourself, more than that the help will do it for you.
I have just removed all spam emails from my list and sent it off to the Follow it help (Alex). According to Alex- Follow it stops these spam followers, I'll have to wait and see 😏 
I hope you continue to follow me though Follow it when you get the email.
Here's what the continue subscribing looks like.




CAS Christmas challeng for June - Bring out your Snowmen

Hi Everyone, it's time for June's CAS Christmas Card Challenge. Hideko wants us to pull out our Snowman stamps and join in the fun.
 


Welcome Steph of My Paper Corner as Guest Designer for this month and don't forget to say hi to the Design Team.
Here is my card for the challenge, I used an old Sugar Nellie stamp with the Snowman family caroling. Unfortunately they no longer make these stamp 😒



I stamped the image in Versafine Clair and watercoloured the image. Once I was happy with the watercolouring I re-stamped the images with Versafine Clair and this time heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. 
I used Flower soft on the hat and around the base of the Snow Family for a little texture

Paper: Water Colour , Night of Navy (SU) 110lb White

CAS Christmas Mid Month Reminder

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know, if you haven't heard from me recently it's because my mum passed away from Dementia on Tuesday. It's been a tough week but I know she is now at peace 💓

It's time for CAS Christmas Mid Month reminder.


I'm hosting CAS Christmas this month and my challenge is to pull out some of your stamps which have berries with the foliage.
I'm using a stamp I just picked up from Pink Ink Designs, aren't these little mice adorable. I  used  the mistletoe sprig to go with the kissing mice 😍
I coloured my image using pencils and framed it using a piece of acetate that I cut using one of my rectangle dies. I lightly blended some colour around the edge. When I was done I added some pearl white pearl pen to the berries.


The Sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous

Stamps: Pink Ink Designs, Stampers Anonymous Sentiment
Paper: 110lb White, Mixed Media, Black
Ink: Memento Back
Accessories: Pencils (Lyra/Caran D'ache/ Prismacolour) Viva Decor Pearl Pen, Rectangle Stencil
