CAS Christmas Card Challenge - Reminder

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

Another 5x7 Christmas card for a very special (and religious) person on my list :) Instead of using black for the silhouettes, I decided to use white so they would pop against the navy blue background. I splattered gold paint (like stars in the sky as opposed to snow) and used gold EP for the sentiment.                          

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! I hope to see you there ~ 

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Addicted to CAS Card Challenge

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

I love Gnomes! This little guy is from a mini stamp set by MFT during their January release. I used a heart stencil for a background, colored the Gnome with Copic markers, and added a few sparkly gems.

We would love to see how the code word ‘Hearts’ 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 ~

CAS Christmas Card Challenge

Hi there, blog friends! It’s time for the February challenge at CAS Christmas. Our Hostess is Christine and she has chosen ‘Winter Scene’ for our prompt. Our Guest Designer is Izzy Scrap.

This is a fun die set that was a freebie from SSS during December. I started this 5x7 card by blending Distress Oxide Inks for the background, then I placed white glitter cardstock behind the stars and spritzed the panel with sheer shimmer spray. I used black metallic cardstock for Santa and his reindeer and added snow with a white marker. Lastly, I used Navy ink for the sentiment, and this card was complete! 

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 ~ 

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
