CAS Christmas November Reminder - Warm and Cosy

Hello everyone. There is still a week left to enter our Warm and Cosy challenge at CAS Christmas.  

So what could be more warm and cosy than a crackling fireplace and the smell of fresh baked cookies wafting through the home?  And that scene was the inspiration for my reminder card.

So how adorable is that excited little mouse? 🤗   Started by stamping mama and son mice with Copic friendly black ink on a stitched Copic friendly piece of cardstock.  Masked them before stamping the fireplace.  Masked the fireplace and the floor, then blended Real Red and Soft Suede dye inks with blender brushes to create the wall.  I wanted to use warm colours. 

Masked the wall and “baseboard” next, and blended Sahara Sand dye ink for the floor.  Removed the masks and coloured in all images with Copics.  Black heat embossed the sentiment and added clear shimmer to the flames to finish.  

If you need more inspiration to play along, head on over to the challenge post HERE and check out what our guest Bobby (Bits & Pieces) and my team have created.  Love to see what you come up with.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a merry Christmas and we’ll see you next year for the next CAS Christmas challenge.

Hello everyone.  I am popping in quickly to share a fun snowy Christmas scene card.  It looks more complicated than it really was.

On Copic friendly cardstock, stamped and masked the snowman with Copic friendly black ink, then coloured them in with Copics.  Next, heat embossed the sentiment in silver and Santa’s sleigh in black.  Used hand cut hill masks and blended Peacock Feathers distress ink with a blender brush to create the hilly landscape.  Added snow with a white gel pen to finish.

And that was it. Thank you for stopping by.

CAS Christmas November Challenge - Warm and Cosy

Hello there.  This is the final challenge of the year at CAS Christmas as we are taking a break next month. So for this month, we are getting Warm and Cosy.

Winter can be miserable and wet here.  I prefer to stay inside where it’s warm and cosy.  But if I have to venture outside, I still like to stay warm and cosy by bundling up from head to toe... almost like this little fella. 😉

Started by stamping the sweet bear off the edge with Copic friendly black ink on Copic friendly cardstock.  Coloured in with Copics, then masked him.  Next, ink blended turquoise dye ink (retired) through a DIY die cut reverse circle stencil for a backdrop.

Die cut the image piece with a stitched rectangle die then popped it onto a white top folding card base with fun foam for some dimension.   White heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock.  Added falling snow with a white gel pen to finish.

We have Bobby (Bits & Pieces) joining us as our guest this month.  And if you need more inspirations, check out what Bobby and my team have created HERE.  Christmas is coming up pretty quick now.  Hope you will join us and get your cards done.  Thank you for dropping by.
