Now for a little about my card…this is a card that was one of the mnts at one of my workshops in September.  I just LOVE the way this tuned out.  the base of the card is Whisper White.  I took a piece of Night of Navy, ran through the Stylish Stripes embossing folder, added to pieces of the Silver 1/8″ Ribbon then added to the card front.  I stamped the star in versamark on Whisper White, silver embossed, cut out, scored to fold then added using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting in Versamark, silver embossed, punched with wide oval punch then added using the dimensionals.  I then added a couple of basic rhinestones to finish it off.

Festive Flurry

CAS241Today for the CAS challenge, we were to CASE one of the CAS alumni.  I had such a tough time deciding but ended up picking this card.  I kept the general layout but changed from a flower to the snowflake then changed the colors.  I also added some more elements to it.

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped the largest snowflake in Versamark and embossed with Pool Party embossing powder then the smallest snowflakes in versamark and Silver embossing powder.  This is layered onto Pool Party, wrapped some silver 1/8″ ribbon around it then added to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped Peace on Earth in versamark and Pool Pary embossing powder, punched with the wide oval punch, layered on a silver foil (hard to see on the photo) decorative label punch.  This is layered onto the card front using dimensionals.

WinterBadgeOh…we are gearing up for our Winter Collection featuring the holiday of December!  It’s beginning to look a little like Christmas!  Connie and I are starting the Early Bird signups for our Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013.  It’s all about Christmas and Winter projects!  It’s not too early to start planning those gifts and decorating and we have lots of GREAT ideas to help you!  See more information over on Create with Connie and Mary!

Peace on Earth

https://stampercamper.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1215&action=edit&message=1Oh my…the CAS challenge this week is to be inspired by the quote…

“I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night-Galileo”

How wonderful is that!  As soon as I saw that I thought of the phrase “Peace on Earth” and wanted just a couple stars ‘twinkling’ in the sky.  Now I have to be honestly, this photo does NOT do this card justice…not even close!

The base of the card is Shimmery White.  I took another piece of Shimmery White, embossed the greeting in Silver and used the Holiday Collection Framelit Star to put the three stars in there.  This is mounted to a piece of Silver Glimmer paper using dimensionals and then that panel is added to the card front using dimensionals.  To finish it off, I added a couple Basic Rhinestone for just a little more bling!
