New Years Eve with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

 Hello my friends!! It is the eve of 2022 and I am so happy to say good bye to 2021. I am ready for a reset!!! How about you?

Today I am on the blog with a card for CAS-Fridays Stamps. I used the Champagne Flute Dies and the Pop Fizz Clink stamp set to create this festive card.

The background heat embossed but I did a little trick. I used the Bubbly Stencil and did a direct to paper method with the Versamark Ink through the stencil. I then used gold embossing powder on top of that. I knew if I did this technique with this glitter embossing powder, it would not be perfect but I like how it came out. 

All this gold made the card really difficult to photograph too!!

As a bonus, we are also blogging about our favorite card we created for the CAS-Fridays Design Team. 

This was my favorite card that I created all year. I was able to get MESSY and used techniques that I haven't used in years. I also LOVE the colors. Here is the link to my original BLOG POST to see how I created this card.

Week 2 of the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #534-Snow People

Hello everyone!! I hope that this post finds you all well. 

I am popping in today with a card to remind you of the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #534.


The theme is to create a card with Snow People.

I tried to make my card as simple as possible. I used a mix of new and old supplies. I used the Honey Bee Stamps Pierced Snowflake Die on a red card base as my starting point.

I die cut a white rectangle using my pierced rectangles from The Greetery and die cut a square out of that. I stamped a sentiment from Mama Elephant's Jingle Greetings on my rectangle and adhered it to my card.

I used a combo of Prized Ribbon and Peeled Paint Distress Stain on the tiny square and used foam adhesive to adhere it in a diagonal over the rectangle opening. I added a die cut tree and a Mama Elephant stamped snowman to complete my card.

I hope that this card inspires you to come on over and play with us this week. I cannot wait to see what you create!!! Pop on over to the Cupcake Inspirations Blog to see what the other DT members created!!

I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!!

Time for a NEW Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #534-Snow People

 Happy Monday everyone!! 

I don't know about you but at this time of year, I feel like I am on a never ending treadmill. So many things to do but not enough time to complete everything you want to do! 

That said, this card for the new Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #534 was done at the last minute and I LOVE how it came out!!! 

This week the challenge is a theme challenge-Snow People.


I used a mixture of old and new products on this card. The snowman is *Jack Frost from Elizabeth Craft Designs. He is one of my new winter products that I bought this year.

I combined him with some snowflakes from my stash and the new Sophie Snowflake from SSS. 

I stamped the Typed Christmas sentiment from Hello Bluebird with Berrylicious ink from Pinkfresh Studio. 

The background paper is from my scrap stash. It was originally a 12 by 12 Christmas paper and it worked perfectly for this card!!!

I hope that you like my card and have time to join us this week at Cupcake Inspirations. I cannot wait to see what you create!!!

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!

Week Two of the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #533

 Hello Crafty Friends!!

 Today I am popping in with a card that I created for week two of the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #533

This challenge was to use the colors red, white and cream on a card. 

I actually added some gold and green as well because I thought that it needed it.

I started off by using a circle stencil and blending Festive Berries for the red background and then a Stamperia "Alchemy" stencil over it in Fired Brick Distress Ink.

The trees are Tall Pine Trees from the Frantic Stamper Inc. The snowflakes are from my stash that I cut out awhile ago. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Snow Globe Sentiments. I use these sentiments a TON and I think need to make a bunch ahead of time.

I hope that you hop on over and play with us this week. I cannot wait to see what you create!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!
