Peaceful Pines

CAS346I’ve been working on some cards for a wonderful group of ladies that get together every month to do some crafting.  I had promised that we would do some Christmas cards and I’ve been working this weekend to get my cards designed for this get together and for a Christmas card class next month.

I was looking around and noticed that the CAS challenge on SCS is to do words only…no stamped images.  Well…I was thinking about doing a simple Christmas tree card for my Tuesday get together and I came up with this simple card!  Only the words are stamped…that rest are die cuts…AWESOME!

Here’s the details…

  • Mossy Meadow – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 5 x 3 3/4, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Very Vanilla – 4 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • Home for Christmas dsp (mistletoe print) – 3/4 x 3 1/2, add to Very Vanilla panel
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival ink, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Cut medium tree framelit out of Gold Foil, and small tree framelit out of Gold Glimmer, layer and add using dimensionals.
  • Cut stars from Mossy Meadow and add to top of each tree to finish off.

So…what a great little Christmas card!  And speaking of GREAT…you should see the WONDERFUL projects we have for our subscribers of the Create with Connie and Mary October Mini Session.  Here’s a sneak peek of our projects (and PSST…we opened TODAY)!…

A Little Something

CandyCanes1Oh…today is such a good day!  Why you ask?  Well…today is the opening day of Create with Connie and Mary October Mini Session!  WOOO HOOO!!!!

Since our October Mini Session is a mixture of both Fall and Christmas, I decided to do a fun little Christmas card to celebrate today.

I was looking around for a challenge to use and found this fabulous sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and thought how CUTE it would look in Candy Canes!  NAILED IT!  LOL!!!  I do think it REALLY turned out CUTE!

Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/8 x 5 1/2
  • Stamp candy cane (A Little Something) 9 times using Real Red and cut out using the Candy Cane from the Square Pillow Box Framelit.  Stamp holly (Snow Place) 9 times using Real Red and Garden Green markers, cut out using the matching Snow Friends Framelits.  Add holly to candy canes.  Lay on Whisper White panel just for placement then stamp greeting using Garden Green.  Now add the cut out Candy Canes.
  • Striped Garden Green dsp (Regals dsp paper pack) – 3/4 x 5 1/2, add behind panel then add panel using dimensionals.

See…that was as easy as can be!  Speaking of easy…if you want some GREAT ideas for Fall and Christmas, it is EASY to subscribe to the Create with Connie and Mary October Mini Session!
