Hi everyone. Time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS. This challenge is being run by the very talented Florence (florence and freddie part 2) ... and she has chosen this code word:
Lots of ways to interpret the code word ... but I chose to design my card for the Christmas Holidays. I used one of my poinsettias along with die-cut letters to create a sentiment image. Hope you like.
Prize: 4 digital images from Delicious Doodles
(please follow the rules to be eligible to win)
Stamps: Merry and Bright (Amy R)
Paper: White, Real Red, Old Olive, Holiday Treasures DP (retired) (SU!)
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: Big Shot, Blooming Poinsettia (Poppy Stamps), Alphabet dies (My Favorite Things), stylus, mat, glue, Stamp-a-ma-jig, adhesives, and dimensionals
The die-cut letters (j, y) are made thick by gluing together three layers. The poinsettia is sponged, shaped and assembled (see tutorial here). I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement of the "to the world" sentiment. The letters and poinsettia are popped up for added dimension.
Here's a close-up:
Here's another holiday card ... this time using one of our sponsor's digital images. I LOVE this scene. I kept it very CAS by just adding a little color with some diluted re-inkers and a paint brush ... and then glittered up the snow to make it more festive. I used a simple frame and sentiment ... but when it was finished, I realized that it might not be CAS, but wanted to share it with you. It's hard to see the glittery snow in this shot, but the close-up below shows it well. Hope you like.
