STAMPlorations Reminder Challenge: Black

Hello!  It is time to share a little more inspiration for this month's STAMPlorations CAS Challenge with the color black as the twist.  I've created a very simple Christmas card this time...

                        (Oh, Christmas Tree! and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies)

I apologize for the sentiment being so hard to read in my photos.  It looks beautiful in person, but I think the shine of the embossing powder made the words hard to read, so hopefully that second photo helps!  I love fun look of the trees in this stamp set and really love how easy this card would be to mass produce for the holidays.  To create this card I started with a black panel, embossed the tree image in 24K Gold Embossing Powder and die cut with the double running stitch.  I then embossed the sentiment with the same embossing powder but onto red card stock and trimmed it out before adhering it to the black panel with foam adhesive.

I can't wait to see what you will create for this challenge!

And a Happy New Year!

*This is post #2 for me today, please scroll down if you are looking for my CAS-ual Friday Post! Thank you!!!

Hello!!!  Today I'm sharing a pretty little Christmas card with you that uses the Cardinal Greetings Stamp Set by Mint Owl Studios.  Their new sets are a mix of snarky, sweet, and classic and I'm totally loving them...

To create this card I started by stamping the bough image all the way around a panel in various green inks.  I then went over the panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and die cut the bottom edge.  Next I die cut a star and stamped my sentiment in the center of it.  I finished it all off with some blue sequins.

This card was super easy and could be used for mass production purposes.  Feel free to share with us what you are creating with your Mint Owl Studio Goodies on any of our social media sights, or by tagging us on your own sites!

Happy Crafting!


CAS-ual Fridays Final Release Day: Powerful Words

Here it is the final day of new releases for CAS-ual Fridays, and it has been awesome if I do say so myself hehehe!  Today we are sharing the Powerful Words Stamp set with all of you...  I decided to create something a little bit different to show how versatile these sets can be as well.  Since I've had Christmas on the brain lately, that's exactly what I went with...

To create this card I started by inking up one of my acrylic blocks with green and red ink, spritzing this with water and "smooshing" it onto the cardstock.  Once this was dry I stamped and embossed the sentiment in 24 K Gold Embossing Powder.  I then hand drew a frame around it and finished it off with some splattering of gold spray.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget to head over to the CAS-ual Fridays Blog for more inspiration and then to the store to grab this set for yourself!  Plus I have a discount code you won't want to miss using...

Happy Crafting/Shopping!

Autumn Layout with DCWV

*If you are looking for the CAS-ual Fridays Release Post please scroll down!  Thank you!

Hello!  Today I am sharing a layout I've created with the new 12 x 12" Autumn Leaves Stack found at your local JoAnns Store on the DCWV blog and here.  Let me just say that this stack is gorgeous with rose gold foiling throughout and the rich Autumn colors, love it!!!

After layering the patterned paper the way I wanted it I used a a mix of punches and leaf dies to create the embellishments on my page.  The journaling area was hand cut from the journal cards found in the stack.

This layout was created based on the newest sketch found on the Creative Scrappers Challenge Blog:

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

CAS-ual Fridays Release Day 2: Be

Hello!  Welcome to Day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays' Stamp Release for the Callin' All Sistahs Collection, yay!!!!  This new set is called Be and it has some awesome sentiments as well as a few beautiful butterfly images.

Isn't this sentiment just awesome?!  And it can be used for many uplifting occasions.  To create this postcard I started by stamping the 3 side butterfly images in antique linen distress ink and then I used other pink distress ink colors to water paint  over top of the images so that they appear to be done free handed.  While these dried I stamped the sentiment in a dark brown ink and went over the front corners with distress ink in scattered straw.  I finished the post card by stamping more butterfly images in the same scattered straw ink.

Make sure you stop by the CAS-ual Friday Stamps Blog for more inspiration, and you can purchase the Be stamp set as of today! YAY!!!  And it gets better, because I have a discount code for you to use too!

Happy Shopping/Crafting!
