[How I made the card]

1. Stamped 6 snowmen with Versafine Onix ink and clear heat-embossed them.

2. Stamped the sentiment in red pigment ink and clear heat-embossed it.

3. Made masks for the snowmen, and sponged light blue over the sentiment and the masked images.

4. Peeled the masks and colored the snowmen with Zig markers.

CAS Christmas June Challenge - merry christmas

Hi everyone,
I'm hosting this month's challenge at CAS Christmas and my prompt is Snowman. 
We are so happy to have Steph (My Paper Corner) as Guest Designer. Welcome, Steph!
In case you don't have any snowman stamps or dies, I made a card without using  a stamp or die today. I hope this will inspire you to play along with us, with or without snowman supplies. 😊




Here's my card:




[How I made the card]

1. Foiled the sentiment frame on a piece of white card stock.

2. Cut out a carrot from orange felt and a heart from blue felt.

3. Attached enamel dot eyes, and glued the carrot and the heart to the framed panel.

4. Adhered the front panel to the card base.




Check out the challenge blog for wonderful clean and simple Snowman cards from the Design Team and our Guest Designer, Steph. I'd love to see you in the gallery!
The challenge is open until June 24th.

CAS Christmas May Challenge - joy

Hi everyone,

It's time for a reminder card for Christine's Foliage and Berries challenge for CAS Christmas.  


I received die-cuts of a wreath and a sentiment from a sweet friend, and they were perfect for this month's challenge!

Here's my card:


[How I made the card]

1. Watercolored the wreath and the sentiment, Joy.

2. Die-cut a circle 4 times, stacked up the pieces, and glued the wreath and the sentiment onto the stacked circles for dimension.

3. Hot foiled the frame on a white front panel.

4. Embossed a brick pattern on a piece of white card stock and glued it inside the foiled frame.

5. Attached the wreath to the embossed panel.

6. Glued the whole front panel to the card base.

7. Brushed Wink of Stella over the wreath and the sentiment to add a little sparkle to them.



You have until May 24th. Looking forward to seeing your card in the gallery

Our talented Designer, Christine (It's a Card Day's Night), is hosting the challenge this month, and she chose Foliage and Berries as the theme. 

We are excited to have Robyn (Waterlily Cards by Robyn) as Guest Designer. Welcome, Robyn!


Here's my card:


[How I made the card]

1. Die-cut the front panel and the foliage & berries from white cardstock, and the sentiment (merry) from gold foil paper.

2. Made a background with Alcohol Ink and attached the piece to the back of the window.

3. Glued the die-cut foliage & berries and the sentiment to the window.

4. Adhered the whole front panel to the card base.


I was not able to catch the shimmer from the Alcohol Pearl Ink in the photo, so I need your help in imagining it. 😉

CAS Christmas April Challenge - warm holiday wishes

Hi everyone! It's the mid-month reminder for the Rainbow challenge at CAS Christmas.


I inked a big sentiment stamp with rainbow colors this time.

Here's my card:



[How I made the card]

1. Inked the sentiment stamp with rainbow colors and stamped on a square piece of card. Pink and yellow overlapped and created orange, and the yellow and blue overlap made green.

2. Added a die-cut hemstitch square frame, and layered the front panel over square silver glitter paper.

3. Raised the front panel with foam tape on the card base (5" x 5").



Click here for more inspirations from my team. The gallery is full of gorgeous rainbow color CAS Christmas cards. The challenge is open until April 24th.





Stamp: Warm Holiday Wishes (My Favorite Stripes)
Paper: Basic White
 (Stampin' Up!), Glitter Paper (Silver - Recollections)
Ink: Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet (Distress Ink - Ranger)
