Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS holiday card featuring Memory Box dies.
This card was easy to put together! I cut a dark blue cardstock panel with the Memory Box Snowdrift Breeze die to create the background. I used the same die to cut white cardstock snowflakes that I placed back into the dark blue panel. I cut the front part of the scene with the Memory Box Horse Sleigh Landscape die. The houses and trees were cut with the Memory Box Country Landscape die from matte silver cardstock. The entire scene was adhered together and taped on to a white cardstock base.
I heat-embossed the Lawn Fawn Merry Messages sentiment (this is a set I’ll be reaching for a lot this season!) on red cardstock to add a little punch to the scene. I used the Lawn Cuts Everyday Sentiment Banners die set to cut the sentiment (trimming off the ends).
I’m playing along with this week’s Merry Monday Christmas Challenge – Plaid.
I created a CAS card featuring the Taylored Expressions Wreath Cutting Plate:
I went through my stash of Christmas patterned papers and found two patterns that worked well together (after trying out several different plaids). I cut the wreath frame from gold cardstock (Metallic Neutrals pack) and backed the open spots with Scotch tape. I cut the patterned papers with the plate and placed those pieces into the frame. I stamped the sentiment from Ornamental with gold ink on the Red Pepper cardstock and attached that piece to the back of the frame. For embellishment, I added a glittery die-cut bow (Mini Mix & Match Bows).
Hello! I’m playing along with this week’s colourQ Challenge.
I created a CAS Halloween card with the challenge colors:
This card uses a variety of products from my stash. The sentiments are from an older Reverse Confetti set. I used an Avery Elle tag die to cut one of the sentiments and a Spellbinders circle die to cut the other.
The ghosts, which I backed with the Lilac color (needed to sneak that in!), are Memory Box dies. The dry-embossed background was created with a Stampin’ Up folder.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a “just because” die-cut, fall scene created with Taylored Expressions supplies.
I had an assembled Little Bits – Raccoon on my work table just waiting for a place on a card. Our recent wind and rain storms had me thinking about swirling leaves (of which we’ve seen a lot), and I wanted to create a scene in which the raccoon was surrounded by falling leaves. I happened to also have the dry-embossed base, so it was easy to add a few more items to complete the scene. I’ve never used the Build a Scene – Rolling Clouds dies before but decided they’d be the perfect way to add a sentiment to the scene in an unobtrusive manner!
Hello. Today, I’m sharing a CAS die-cut holiday card featuring the CottageCutz Peppermint Latte die set.
To begin, I cut and assembled the cups, and then went on the hunt for coordinating patterned paper. I found papers I liked, but they didn’t match the red and green I’d chosen for the cups, so I started over. (Note to self: pick out the patterned paper first!)
Because the background patterned paper has a number of sentiments (it reminds me of a chalkboard at a café listing the specials), I decided to forgo adding another sentiment to the card.
I used two different stitched square die sets from Lil’ Inker Designs to cut the background and the card base. One of the sets includes a die that cuts a stitched square 4.25″ x 4.25″.
Hello. I’m playing along with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge whose theme this week is Retro/Vintage (a Christmas style/theme that I really like!).
I created a CAS card using Taylored Expressions die-cuts:
This card features one of my favorite retro/vintage color schemes: teal blue, red and white. I framed the Jolly Old St. Nick scene using the Picture Perfect – Vertical die. The patterned paper is from a pack I had in my stash. The card base is silver metallic from the Metallic Neutrals pack – the finish and color reminds me of aluminum Christmas trees!
Hello – it’s a beautiful fall day here in the Pacific Northwest, but rains are in the forecast for the next week! I’m sharing another CAS Halloween card featuring the Penny Black 30-318 Bewitched stamp set. (I blogged a card using a cat image from this stamp set here.)
I colored the adorable hedgehog with watercolor pencils and paint, and when dry, I fussy-cut the image, as well as the pumpkin balloon.
To frame my image, I cut a partial circle in a rectangular panel, which I then dry-embossed. I watercolored a teal blue background, onto which I stamped the hedgehog image again (to get the balloon string), when the panel was dry.
I cut the sentiment from watercolored cardstock with 51-077 Eeek! and added it to the rectangular panel (for extra depth I cut a second sentiment and glued the two together).
Before adhering the watercolor hedgehog to the background with foam adhesive, I glued down a small fence created with the 51-073 Haunted Hallow die set.
Hello. Today, I’m sharing a CAS Christmas card showcasing the TE Build a Scene Christmas patterned paper pack.
The TE Build a Scene Christmas pack contains papers with all-over patterns, such as the tree one I used in the back panel and the stripes used for the snowman’s scarf, as well as scenes, such as the one I used to place the Little Bits – Snowman. The beauty of these packs – the colors and patterns coordinate wonderfully!
I framed the snowman scene using the Picture Perfect – Vertical die. To add texture and visual interest, I scattered snowflakes cut with the Little Bits – Snowflake Confetti die.

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS Christmas card showcasing the Penny Black Slapstick/Cling background stamp 40-489 Elaborate.
To create the background panel, I applied Festive Berries and Wild Honey Distress Inks to the 40-489 Elaborate stamp allowing them to blend. I have a feeling that I’ll be using this background stamp in future holiday projects – can you see it stamped silver on deep red? gold on green?
The sentiment from 30-382 Yuletide Wishes was cut with a circle die. I added a vellum circle behind, cut with a die sized just larger than the white sentiment circle.
I cut the greenery with 51-262 Poinsettia Bough and 51-249 Winter Garland from watercolor cardstock colored with Peeled Paint, Wild Honey and Festive Berries Distress Inks.
I created a card with similar design and supplies for the Penny Black Simplicity site. I hope you’ll head over to take a look at that take!
