Wishing You Happiness



Hello crafty friends! Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS ~ Vicki D. is our Hostess, and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Geometric’.

                                                                                                                                                                       
               For my geometric shape, I chose my octagon dies and instead of creating a scenic sky for the background, I decided to use a tiny dots stencil with glimmer paste. The butterfly and sentiment are from the same MFT set.

We would love to see how the code word ‘Geometric’ inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team and play along with us, come on over and check out the ATCAS Blog ~ Hope to see you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

CAS Christmas Card Challenge - Reminder


Hello friends ~ Just a reminder that there is still time to link up your card for the July CAS Christmas Card Challenge. Linda is hosting this month and she has chosen ‘Poinsettia’ for our prompt.


Recently, I went on a shopping spree at The Greetery and I used a few of my new goodies for this card. I used traditional colors for the poinsettias, a gold gel pen for the centers, and just for fun, light gray for the berries :) I stamped the sentiment then topped it with clear EP for a lovely shine (too bad it doesn't show on screen).   

My teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire everyone ~ Come on over to the Challenge Blog to check them out, and play along with us, if you like! You have until the 24th to submit your card and it's a great way to add to your Christmas card stash! I hope to see you there ~

CAS Christmas July Challenge



Hi there, blog friends! It’s time for the July challenge at CAS Christmas. Our Hostess is Linda and she has chosen ‘Poinsettia’ for our prompt and our Guest Designer is Sandra from Sandma's Handmade Cards.



I love this graphic Poinsettia without adding the 2nd layer to the design, which would fill in the color. I used ultra fine gold embossing powder for the flower and sentiment, added a few clear gems, then placed the panel on a gold foil card base...and that was it! I love a clean and simple card, but sometimes it's hard to know when to add and when to stop ~ know what I mean?

We hope you’ll stop by the Challenge Blog and check out all the beautiful Christmas cards by our DT and Guest Designer. The challenge ends on the 24th, so you have plenty of time to play along with us. It’s a great way to add some beautiful cards to your Christmas card stash! I hope to see you there ~ 

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: Stamplorations - Layered Poinsettia; Clearly Besotted - Christmas Sparkle
Misc: Simon Says Stamp - Ultrafine Gold Embossing Powder

Addicted to CAS Card Challenge - Christmas


Hello crafty friends! Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS ~ Nancy is our Hostess, and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Christmas’


I like creating Christmas cards with a non-traditional color palette. For this card, I chose pumice stone and shaded lilac distress inks. I started with a loose lilac watercolor for the background and I blended pumice stone ink lightly onto stone gray cardstock before die-cutting the mistletoe. I used DOX ink for the berries and bow to get a pop of color then I brushed everything with a crystal clear marker to add sparkle to the design. 

We would love to see how the code word ‘Christmas’ inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team and play along with us, come on over and check out the ATCAS Blog ~
