CAS Christmas September Reminder - Holiday Treats

Hello everyone.  This is the reminder post for the Holiday Treats challenge this month at CAS Christmas.


I initially had something else in mind, but mistakes happen resulting with this.


This was pretty straight forward.  Stamped the image with Copic friendly black ink on Copic friendly cardstock.  Coloured in with Copics then die cut out with a circle die.


Next, took a black A2 size panel from my stash and heat embossed the sentiment from same set with Silver Pearl embossing powder.  Assembled the card onto a white card base and added Crystal Glaze on the candy cane to finish.


There is one week left to get your entries linked by September 24.  For more inspirations from our guest Birgit (Rapport fran ett skrivbordy) and my team, head over to the challenge blog HERE.  Thank you for dropping by.

Butt Seriously

Hello there.  I have a niece who is turning 16 (say whaaaat?) at the end of this month.  I couldn't help "butt" giggle and smile when I made this punny scene birthday card for her.


The pandas were stamped with Copic friendly black ink on Copic friendly cardstock and coloured with Copics.  There are no matching dies, so they were fussy cut out.  Next a balloon was die cut from white and Black Soot distress ink was blended on with a mini blending tool.


To create the background, a strip down the left side of an A2 Bristol panel was masked.  Using blending brushes, blended Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed distress inks over a cloud stencil.  Spritz it with a Sparkle spray for some shimmer before removing the masks.


Stamped the sentiment in black (butt is from the same set).  A black marker was then used to draw in the balloon string/bow and the three dots after seriously.  Adhered the panel onto a white top folding card base and stamped the birthday message on the inside to finish.


I had fun creating this and I hope it's not too cute for a 16-year old. 😂   Thank you for visiting.  Enjoy your weekend.

CAS Christmas September Challenge - Holiday Treats

Hi there!  I'm here today with this month's challenge for CAS Christmas and the theme is Holiday Treats.


Here's my card.


The sentiment (retired) inspired me to create a mini tree with the gingerbread man.   Stamped and masked each one with Copic friendly black ink on a Copic friendly stitched panel.  Coloured in with Copics and added "icing" details with a white gel pen.


The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of Bristol paper then coloured with a blending tool and Mowed Lawn distress ink.  Wiped off excess ink with a paper towel.  Adhered the panel to a Kraft stitched panel, and added clear shimmer to the gingerbread men to finish.



Now it's over to you.  My team and our guest Birgit (Rapport fran ett skrivbord) have made some wonderful cards to inspire you over on the challenge blog HERE.  The challenge runs till September 24.  Hope you will join us.  Thank you for visiting..
