Christmas Tree Wishes

 Beautiful Christmas tree of words from Papertrey Ink!

This is the final card ... after trying 9 different backgrounds! Just love this embossing folder ... All Star Burst from Simon Says Stamp.

Here are the 9 different backgrounds I was trying ... started with vellum - but thought it got a bit lost on it, the red die cut stars - too dark!, gold die cut stars - too similar to the tree ... and on it went.

I added Nuvo Glitter Gloss to the stars on the embossing folder, and glossy accents to the star at the top of the tree.

Merry Christmas wishes to you ...

    A silent night,

        a start above,

            a blessed gift of hope and love.

A blessed Christmas to you.

Book Club Christmas

We had our book club Christmas dinner this week. The colour theme this year was blue and white.

A friend gifted me the Papertrey Ink Storybook Christmas which was perfect timing. I changed up one of the book titles for each person's name so I could use them as Place Names. 

Quite a mission ... to get 13 place names, I stamped and die cut 117 pieces, then glued them all together. But it was worth it!

Serendipitously I had blue place name holders in shape of a bauble.

Here's the table decorations.

Candy Cane Circles

My new Christmas supplies from Pinkfresh Studio ... love the candy cane effect of the red rings behind the slim braided circles.

There is no stamping on this card which is very unusual for me. Wonderful to use the layered Festive Leaves Stencil and die, and the foiled sentiments are so chic.

Catching the foiled sentiments - I cut one sentiment into 3 to fit in the circles.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

CAS cards don't need to be on white ... I just love how this Santa pops on the red background of All Starburst 3D embossing folder (a NBUS).

I added some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer to the stars to give the sparkle.

Wedding Wishes

Elegant wedding card by keeping it to one tone with Platinum embossing. Just a touch of colour with Copic.

Trying to capture the embossing.

Christmas Cheer ... and mixing up Stamp Sets

To get the mojo going, I was CASe-ing Elena Roussakis's card, but I changed up a few things :

  • I mixed images from 2 stamps sets
  • I did not make it a shaker card
  • I matted it on a lime card (love how it makes it pop)
  • Added Nuvo Aqua Shimmer to certain spots

I stamped up 3 sets of images, so decided to play with some of the extras. 

Sometimes you need to mix up your stamp sets to get just the right card :

  • Ellen Hutson Holiday Characters (NBUS)
  • Ellen Hutson Bear Ware 5 (NBUS)
  • Ellen Hutson Abstract Nature
  • Ellen Hutson Organic Elements
  • MFT Gift Tag Greetings  (NBUS)

Cozy Time

CASology Challenge is coming to an end. Melissa has given us 10 wonderful years of inspiration and fun. All good things come to an end, but wish her all the success in her future plans. 

It was where I discovered my love of CAS designs and so I could not miss playing in the last challenge.

I masked the books to keep it a one layer card.
