CAS Christmas- Two Challenges in One!


Hi Stampers!

I hope all of you are having a wonderful week!  Today, I was able to spend some time in my craft room and decided to create a card for this week’s CQC146 ColourQ Challenge and combined it with this week’s FMS44 sketchat Freshly Made Sketches (if you have the time- check them out!)

To create this quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card:

Stamp the chickadee image with Basic Black onto Whisper White cardstock. Color the image using Stampin’ Write markers in Pear Pizzazz, Real Red and Crumb Cake. 

Use the Big Shot with the 3” Originals™ Circle Die to cut out the chickadee image and a circle from Basic Black using the 3 ½” Originals™ Circle Die.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake Designer Series Paper.

Layer the pieces per the sketch, add the sentiment and bow to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Beautiful Season, Bells & Boughs

Ink: Basic Black

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Crumb Cake DSP (retired Hostess Level I)

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, 3” and 3 ½” Originals™ Dies, Decorative Label Punch, Aqua Painter, Flannel Ribbon (from my stash)

Thanks again for stopping by to visit- hope you have a wonderful weekend!
