CAS Watercolour Challenge

I can't believe that I still need Christmas cards. [I've been making them since July!]  That said, it gave me an excuse to play in the December CAS Watercolour Challenge; watercolour resist

I used the CAS-ual Fridays stamp set, Snowy Sayings.  I was going to use this over on the CFS blog, but changed my mind.  [Hence, the company watermark]  This card was too perfect for the challenge.

That's it today~

 I did want to remind you, you can save 15% over at the CAS-ual Fridays store, by using my code VICKI2016. This code does work with the sale prices going on right now too!!  Just sayin~

STAMPlorations Inspirations #109

It's STAMPlorations time here on my blog.  Today I played with my Mink machine and gold foil.

I stamped the bell image [Holiday Sketches; Christmas Bells], and scanned it.  Then, I printed it with my laser printer, and ran it through my Mink with the gold foil.  You can tell the foiled image as it is a bitch to photograph [looks black].

With this 2nd photo, you can see the foiling;
 Fortunately, it looks really pretty in real life.  I used the CUTplorations Merry Christmas Word Die for my sentiment.

SCS Color Challenge #612

It's the SCS Color Challenge time. This week the colors are Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Pool Party, with a dessert of snow.


Playing in my stamp room yesterday, I tried the Color Embossing Folder  Technique.
I came up with this card;

I like the way this turned out.  It was fun to make too.  I used MFT Hand Letter Christmas stamp set for my sentiment.  I do love the font.  I am entering this into the Happy Little Stampers December CAS Challenge; Favorite Technique, and AAA CAS Game #79; Christmas.

Your turn!  Come on over to SCS and join us in this week's Color Challenge.

Customer's Cards & Gifts

I spent all day yesterday making a few of my customers Christmas cards, and small gifts.  Literally,  What I thought would be a couple of hours.......well, plans are good.  I wanted to share what I made just for the fun of it.

I used a stamp set I got last year [on sale of course], EK Success Evergreen Holiday.  I have to say, the images in this set are quite fabulous!  To bad it has been discontinued.

I went on to make bookmarks for a few of the women customers, 
using Inspired By Stamping, Winter Birds.
I put them in a gift size envie made with a CUTplorations Die, Card Envelope.
Of course I had to get a coffee cup in there somewhere :)

Even though these took longer then expected, I had fun making them. 
 I hope my customers will like them.

Merry Monday Challenge #224 & Muse Christmas #72

Today I am playing in the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #224 - a masculine Christmas card.

I do love making masculine cards.  This one is once again for my son.  By choosing masculine colors, I think this makes for a masculine card.  I used an OOB Top Dog Doily Die cut, Simon Says Eliza Snowflake Die cut, and CUTlorations Merry Christmas Word Phase Die cut

I went on to play in Muse: Christmas Visions #72.  My fellow teamie Cornelia made a fabulous tag.  I also made a tag, but put it on a card for easy mailing. I kept with the silver embossed background and sentiment that she used.
