CFC162 - Glitter & Snowflakes

Friday, December 2, 2016

Happy Friday friends. There's a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays that just started and for this challenge, we want to see glitter and snowflakes on your card or other project. Remember that there is up to $50 that can be won from CAS-ual Fridays for entering.

For my card, I started by scribbling on some of my distress crayons in various shades of blues and purples. I have never used these before and was just experimenting a bit. After I scribbled them onto my water color card stock, I spritzed it quite liberally with water to make them move a bit. You can see that the purple didn't quite blend very well but the others moved a bit and softened out. I definitely need more practice with these crayons. 

Once my panel was dry, I stamped these beautiful snowflakes in silver ink from the Bring on the Snowflakes set from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I left a spot in the bottom right corner for a sentiment from the Snowy Sayings stamp set.

Once this was all done, I added a strip of glitter paper to the left of my card and then added my card panel.

I hope you all have an amazing day. Crafty hugs!

DT Project for TupeloDesignsLLC

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

Hi friends. I'm here with a real CAS Christmas card, one that would be easy to mass produce and is easy on the mailing costs with no added embellishments. I'm using products available at TupeloDesignsLLC.

Before we get to today's card, I wanted to let you know about a sale TupeloDesignsLLC is having which ends today, November 29th.  YOU’LL GET A FABER CASTELL KIT (3 PENCILS, 1 ERASER & 1 UFO SHARPENER – RETAIL VALUE $20) WITH EVERY ORDER AND ALL ORDERS OVER $45 WILL ALSO RECEIVE A FREE 24 ART MARKER KIT (RETAIL VALUE $18)!!! USE SALE CODE CYBERM12016 AT CHECK OUT.

I started by stamping the pine image from the Holiday Style stamp set from Sunny Studios. I stamped it with a couple of different colors of green ink to add dimension. I then stamped the sentiment from the same set in the bottom corner and added an ornament from a set from my stash.

After my stamping was complete, I took the card panel and ran it through my Big Shot using the Lacy Scallop Frame dies from Reverse Confetti. I love the scalloped and stitching detail it adds. Normally, I would have added something like this with foam tape to give it a bit of lift but at this time of the Christmas season, I need to keep things more flat to save time when mailing my cards.

Happy Birthday with Concord & 9th -- 2 cards

Friday, November 25, 2016

Hi friends. I have two cards to share with you today using fun goodies from Concord & 9th. For my first card, I stamped the candles from the Eat Cake & Celebrate stamp set a few times in a row. I then added some Copic coloring to them. I didn't do any shading. I stamped and die cut the sentiment, also from the same stamp set.  I love the matching die so much. Some black and white polka dot paper on the side, foam tape for my panel and sentiment and some sparkling clear sequins from PPP finish off the card.

For my second card, I started out by using the Scattered Bars stencil from MFT and some gold and silver glitter pastes. I used the same stamp set as above for the candles and sentiment.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite between the two? I love them both and am having a difficult time picking.  Either way, thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend.

Merry Christmas tag for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Hi friends. I have a fun tag to share with you today using some newer products from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I started by stamping, coloring and then die cutting the fun hot cocoa image from the Holiday Sweet Treats set. I then stamped an image from the Vintage Backgrounds set onto my tag. The sentiment is from the brand new Grunge Snowflakes stamp set. Some bakers twine finishes off the tag.

Thanks so much for visiting and for all my US friends, I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving filled with lots of yummy food and extra family time.
