CAS Christmas

Hello everyone, the card I have made today is certainly the quickest card I have ever made! My fellow cupcakes and I have a challenge among ourselves and this month the theme is CAS christmas. Well this couldn't have come at a better time as I vowed that this year I would try and come up with a design that would be quick for me to do so I wouldn't be frantically making christmas cards at the last minute.

Well I love doing CAS cards but I always colour an image and at least one piece of DP slips its way into the design, but I was determind to try something else. I don't have many just stamping stamps.... you know the kind I mean where you just stamp the image and its done.... mine are mostly stamp an image and colour it in types.... but I hunted through my Magnolias and found two snowflakes and a sentiment..... perfect!....but what to do with them........

....well as always I always find so much inspiration from my fellow bloggers and I just LOVE the cards that Sarita at Little Princess Cards produces....if you haven't been there check out her blog it is just fantastic! So filled with ideas this is what I made.....

I think it looks a little better in real life as it is a bit of a dull day today and my picture hasn't turned out too well.... but I'm really pleased with how the card turned out. I might just try and do a few more CAS cards in the future.... I think I have the bug!!

I'm Back with Hugs!

Hello everyone, I am back from my hols in Florida. We had such a great time but I think I left my mojo in the states as it has taken me ages to get back into the swing of it again. However this week I managed to pick up a copic and use some of the new stash I bought while I was away.

For my card I have used Tilda Wants a Hug from the Magnolia Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010 and I have coloured her with copics...... although having been away for a while and out of practice I had to paper piece the dress to hide a bad colour choice and naff colouring!!!! The DP is from K & Co and the ribbon and jewels are from my stash. The flourish die cut was cut with a Marianne Creatables die and I stitched around the edges of all the elements with my sewing machine.

I know that technically this is a christmas stamp but I have added two little star shaped jewels to her hair and I hope the holly leaves aren't too obvious!!
