It's time for CAS Christmas Card challenge and this months theme is Winter Scene.

Susan is our host for this month and Lyn of Lyn's Paper Petunia is our Guest Desinger. Come on over and join the team in creating some Wintry Christmas cards.

I kept my card super CAS this month. I bought some hand made cotton rag paper when I was in the UK a few weeks ago and couldn't resist using it. The texture is so pretty.

Here's a close up of the texture of the handmade paper and the tiny red nose of the reindeer.

CAS Christmas Card Challenge Mid Month reminder

There's still time for you to join in with us at CAS Christmas Card Challenge and make a Christmas card with some Holiday Treats.


Birgit is our Guest Designer this month, Birgit and the rest of the Design team have created some amazing cards for your inspiration.

Here is my card, I used this really cute dog with his rawhide candy cane from The Old Island Stamp Company and the perfect sentiment from My Favorite Things (Happy Pawlidays)

I stamped him on Mixed media and coloured him with pencils, I put some glossy accents over his eyes but you cant see them in the photo. I used a postage stamp die to cut the image out and mounted it on kraft then dark brown


I hope you liked the card and I would love to hear from you.

Treats on Tueseday at Magenta

Hi Everyone, I'm over at Magenta with some distress oxide and embossing powder. The white embossing on a blended background was a technique that Linda (Lin's Craft Corner) showed us at the Craft retreat in May. This was certainly a wow technique and lots of fun, I hope you head over and find out what tips to the technique I've included.

CAS Christmas Card Challenge (holiday treats)

Hi Everyone, it's time for September's CAS Christmas Card Challenge and this month it's all about Holiday treats. Our host this month is Nance, and our Guest Designer is Birgit (Rapport Fran ett Skrivbord)

 

My little treat is a Smores Snowman. I've had this Cottage Cutz die cut for years, so it was the perfect to  excuse to use it.
I die cut the parts in cream, brown, kraft, green, white and red card stock and added a little shading using ink pads and a sponge. His nose has some glossy accents for shape and shine.


I used a memory box snowflake stencil as a background.

Ink: Ranger archival, Distress inks (edges of die cut)
