Happy Howlidays

Hello there.  Dropping in quickly to share a CAS Christmas card made for several challenges.


Used Hero Arts (HA) Nesting Oval Infinity dies to dry emboss the background on a piece of Bristol paper.   Applied some turquoise dye ink to it with a blender brush then splattered with the same colour to give it texture.


Stamped the cute puppy image from HA Fluffy Stockings Stamp & Cut set (discontinued) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock.  Coloured in with Copic markers then die cut out with the included die.  White heat embossed the sentiment from the same set on black cardstock.  Assembled the card to finish.


Thank you for stopping by.

The nesting infinity dies work great for embossing, Trina, and perfect for this sweet puppy in the stocking! I think this would fit in at Christmas Kickstart too.

I never thought to use multiple dies to emboss and you made a terrific card by doing that. I love the movement it shows. That sweet pup in his sock is so adorable and he looks like he's waiting for Santa to come.

The puppy hanging in the green stocking is super cute, Trina! Your coloring and shading is so beautiful. The turquoise ink in the background is pretty and makes the embossed ovals stand out.

Your colouring is magical. Love the dimension achieved with the colour intensity, truly impressive. The die embossing with the nesting ovals is brilliant too. The ink blending and splatters add so much to this very special card. Thanks so much for sharing this jewel at CAS Mix Up!
