CAS Card using Merry Little Labels with Winter Wonder Embossing Folder.

Hello there,
I have a very CAS card for you today but one that, I think, packs a punch! I've teamed the Merry Little Labels (which is not just for labels!) with the Winter Wonder embossing folder to make this card....
I heat embossed the label stamp in silver and added it to the smoky slate embossed card front.
TIP: When dry embossing a whole card front it can make it a little too 'soft' to stand well, so I like to emboss a second piece of card that is just 2mm smaller than the actual card (here it is 10.3cm x 14.6cm) and adhere it flat to the card base using tombow glue.
I used the matching punch to cut out the stamped image and added a second punched card piece in pool party, slightly off set behind.
Loving these new mini sequins too! Gotta have some bling at Christmas. OK, any time of the year actually ;-)
Well, that's all from me for today. I do hope you liked this card :-)
Thanks for stopping by today,

Carols Of Christmas With A Modern Twist!

Hi there,
Today's card is in total contrast to yesterday's traditional Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green make, but still uses use the Carols of Christmas stamps! This is such a versatile set and (I think) the ladies at class enjoyed using it in so many different ways :-)
OK, so this card teams this festive set with the Work Of Art stamps! I know, you haven't seen me use that set in a while but it's a really great set, you'll see.....
 Here I've used a colour combo of Wisteria Wonder, Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party but this card would work equally well in many other colour combinations too, why not give your favourites a whirl?
I added a black deer with the die cut trees, in keeping with the modern feel.
And some matching coloured, double tree die cuts to decorate inside.
 All finished with some (retired) sparkly sequins :-)
So, what did you think? Do you prefer the traditional or non-traditional colours? Let me know in the comments section :-)
I'll be back tomorrow with a new card, 'till then, happy stamping!

Merry Little Labels Stamps and Card Front Builder Dies

Hello there,
I have another card today using the very versatile Carols Of Christmas bundle. For this card I used just the card front builder dies and teamed it with the Merry Little Labels stamp set, which has loads of great sentiments, to make this card...
Can't beat these stitched edge dies, I'd love to see more sizes and designs *hint, hint SU!* ;-)
I used markers to ink this sentiment stamp and then added the die cut shapes around a glimmer paper banner and that deer *heart*
A lovley, easy to post design :-)
So, that's all for today from me. I hope to grab a couple of crafty hours later today as I am painting our bedroom Sunday!
Thanks for looking today :-)

Carols Of Christmas Card - Case Myself!

Hi there!
I have a card for you today using the Carols of Christmas bundle again! This is such a versatile set which would easily see you right through Christmas ;-)
So, this card layout was based on a card I made a few weeks ago for the first ever Inspire. Create. Challenge, you can see it HERE. I liked the layout so much and it would work well with so many different stamp sets...
This is the largest of the stitched edge circles and I didn't want the bulk of an extra layer behind so...
TIP: Roll the circle layer through your ink pad to make it pop from the card front, without adding extra layers.
The leaves have their own die and the flowers can also be die cut out using the corner pieces from the Card Front Builder dies...
TIP: Stamp the flowers then lay the corner die over the image, rotating until it fits in the space, as the flower is not symmetrical! A bit fiddly, but worth it ;-)
Adding some sequins and a thin strip of glimmer paper finishes this card with a little bling!
So, do you like this layout? I'd love to see you make something using it! And when you do why not enter it into the Inspire. Create. Challenge this fortnight which is a (very general) "Festive" themed challenge, perfect!
Thanks for looking today :-)

Watercolour Christmas in Tranquil Tide and Navy

Happy Sunday to you! I hope your weekend is going well? I am currently upside down here as we are decorating our bedroom and my DH is in the U.S of A right now for work too! I am still deciding on a colour for the bedroom walls and it's actually not too far from this Tranquil Tide mixed with Night of Navy and I'm thinking of gold accessories, very much the same as the card I have to show you here....
I wanted to use the tres in this stamp set to make a card and so I simply stamped them in Tranquil Tide then very roughly watercoloured them using the same ink using my aqua painter.

I love the font in this set! I so wish my handwriting was like that ;-)
Die cut the sentiment with the stitched edge framelits and layer onto some Champagne foil card for a little shimmer and sparkle! Finish with some (retired) Navy twine and a few sequins before adding to a navy card base.
Thanks so much for looking today :-)
 I'll try to escape the chaos and get back to you tomorrow with another card, 'till then,
