CAS-ual Fridays It's All About the JOY!

Hello!  Today I am sharing a bold and simply CAS Christmas card on the CAS-ual Friday's Blog...

Now I have to be honest that this card is not exactly what I first had in mind.  My original idea was to create a one layer background by masking the rectangle and adding red Distress Oxide ink to the center of my cardbase... only I had quite a few spots where the masking tape didn't hold and red streaks were outside of the masked area.  But I did love the way the red and spritzed silver looked, so I didn't want to completely throw it away.  I decided to just cut the area out, adhere it to a new cardbase, and problem solved!  I then stamped and embossed the joy sentiment from the Joy Stamp Set, and cut it out to adhere over my inked rectangle.

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you would like to do a little shopping I have a code for you to use...

Happy Crafting!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Yay!!!

Hello, hello!  Welcome to my blog if you are new, and so happy to see you again if you are already a visitor!  Today starts the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and I'm so happy to get to play along.  I've also had the greatest honor to get to share a brand new Coffee Stamp Set by Michele from CAS-ual Fridays!  The set is called Peace, Love & Coffee, it's super cute, and guess what.... it's only $5 today in honor of this hop!!!  Pst - and I have a coupon code at the end of this post for even more savings!!!

Here's a peek at my project...

See?!  Isn't it just so cute?!?!?!  I love the font for the sentiments too!  To create my card I simply stamped the sentiment first with PTI Dark Chocolate Ink on the top and bottom of a strip of white cardstock.  Next I added in the images with more PTI Ink in Kraft, Pure Poppy, and Tropical Teal.  I then popped this strip up with foam adhesive onto patterned paper and finally onto my cardbase.  And here is a closer look...

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog today!  And if you want to pick this set up for $5 today make sure you head to the CAS-ual Fridays Store!  Plus here's a code for you too...

STAMPlorations CAS Challenge: Gold

Hi!  Today starts a new CAS Challenge on the STAMPlorations Blog, and this month we are tempting you to use the color Gold.  I just love gold in my paper crafting!  It always seems to rich and elegant to me.  Today I've used gold to create a plaid background...

I started my stamping and embossing my tree from the retired Oh, Christmas Tree Stamp Set.  Next I stamped the sentiment with black Versafine Ink.  I chose this ink because I knew I wanted to watercolor with various Gold Watercolors.  I used a flat brush to paint strips horizontally across the front of my card.  Once these were dry I used the Plaid Maker ARTploration Stencil and went over the background vertically with Gold Delicata Ink.  I then adhered my panel to a strip of green cardstock and finally onto the cardbase.  Clear and Gold Sequins added the perfect finishing touch.

The shine in person is amazing!  Any who, I can not wait to see what you will make for this challenge!  Remember, all products are welcome, and if you see some new STAMPlorations goodies that you need for yourself remember to use the code: STAMPGIRLLISA to save 20% off of your total!

Happy Crafting!

Handmade Ornament with A Muse Studio

Hi!  I thought I would stop by and share an Ornament I created for the newest A Muse Studio Release...

To create this ornament I used half of a plastic ornamented backed it with the largest die cut Pinking Circle A.  I adhered the Largest snowflake from the Snowflake Trio, and infant this was a left over cut from this card...

I then filled the ball with Diamond Glitter, Snowfall Sequins, and clear Sequins.  I also added a sentiment from the You're the Coolest Stamp Set and I adhered it all together with hot glue.  I tied it off with Bermuda Silk Ribbon.

I also created a little tag to go on the side so that the ornament can be attached to a gift or be the gift itself.  I've used the Tiny Tags Stamp and Die Set as well as the You're the Coolest Stamp Set for the tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll pop over to the A Muse Studio Store to see all of the new products if you haven't had a chance already!
Happy Crafting!
