CAS Christmas Cheer

Hello there. I have a CAS card to share today utilising some new goodies. Here is my card:

Using the colours for the current challenge at Color Throwdown, I first stamped the Stampin Up trees using Concord & 9th inks cubes, then die cut them with the matching stitched triangle dies – also from Stampin Up.

As these trees had a pattern, I die-cut the Tim Holtz deer – a new die set just released – out of dotty paper from Clearly Besotted. I die cut all the deer, but these are the two I chose for this card. The rest I put back into the packet of dies for future uese.

I placed them on the card, then decided I wanted to created a hillside, so as this card measures 7 x 5 inches – my go-to card size – I find the slimline dies more than adequately cut the length. I used the Lawn Fawn die set, decided which part of the hillside I wanted, then stuck down as you see here.

I didn’t stick the deer down fully, as well as the feet and legs being quite thin and narrow – I like to leave them and the antlers unstuck. I think it creates some movement on the card.

Poinsettia Christmas Tree

Hello. A new challenge has begun at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. The theme is always ‘anything goes Christmas‘, Here is my card:

I decided gto go CAS with this card as I think the poinsettia tree can stand on it’s own.

This is a stamp set from Stampin Up, two layers – one for the leaves, and one for the flowers – such a cute image when stamped, I think……there is also a little tree trunk to add to the bottom of it.

CAS and one layer card – well – maybe I’m getting the hang of these now! Finally!

I used the Concord & 9th ink cubes – very vibrant colours in this set – I’m glad I managed to get them when they first arrived here in the UK – I seem to be using them a lot!

I can’t remember where the sentiment came from – I’ve tidied my desk since then 🙂

I hope you can come and join us. xx
