Merry Monday Christmas Challenge – Penguins

Hello. I’m playing along with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge whose theme this week is Penguins. I created a CAS card showcasing the Marianne Design Penguin die set.

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Penguins

The Marianne Design Penguin die set includes two penguin options. (I purchased my set from 123Stitch. Marianne Design is headquartered in The Netherlands and sells through a few US retailers.)

I created the background scene by partially die-cutting the mountain included the Marianne Design Igloo and Mountain set. I had to hand cut the edges to span the card’s width. I did this as I didn’t want too many layers on the card (I often have two or three snow hills!). The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Let It Snow set.

Lawn Fawn – Meow You Doin’?

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card featuring the Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin’ stamp set. (I previously shared a card with this set in this post.)

Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin’?

I stamped the images on Arches watercolor paper and colored them with watercolor pencils. I heat-embossed the sentiment on Poppyseed cardstock cut with the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Stackables set.

The background, cut with the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Stitched Square Stackables set, is dry-embossed with a Taylored Expressions folder.

I stamped the leaf on Sugar Cube cardstock with Distress Oxide Fired Brick ink. I cut the frame from Mocha cardstock with a die in the Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 set. To add color, I used Playful Patterns – Harvest patterned paper card base and Harvest Sequins.

Winter Wonderland

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a holiday card which showcases the Elizabeth Craft Designs Build a Snowman die set.

Winter Wonderland

I applied embossing paste to the background ( Stampin’ Up Dapper Denim) through the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil (I use this stencil so often during the holidays that I just leave it out). I placed the snowman and broom against a landscape cut with the Memory Box Fresh Pine Curved Border to which I added a few Memory Box Fresh Pine Trees. The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Two Feet Deep set.

Lawn Fawn – Deck the Halls

Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS holiday card featuring Lawn Fawn supplies, both new and old.

Lawn Fawn Deck the Halls

I cut the Mini Wreath twice from Stampin’ Up cardstock. I heat-embossed the rectangular panel (cut from the same green cardstock) with a favorite sentiment from the Deck the Halls set. The card base is dry-embossed with a TE Brick embossing folder. Coincidentally, the Lawn Fawn blog is featuring the Mini Wreath and Large Wreath dies today.

Taylored Expressions – Happy Halloween

Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS Halloween card created with Taylored Expressions products.

Taylored Expressions Halloween Die-cuts

To begin, I colored Sugar Cube cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks in Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade and stamped the Simply Said – Halloween sentiment with Archival ink over the inks. I cut a circle from a Plum Punch cardstock rectangle, which I dry-embossed with the Weathered embossing folder to add some texture. Around the sentiment, I added die-cuts cut with the sets: Sitting Pretty Halloween AccessoriesHaunted Accessories, and Little Bits – Ornate Frame.

CAS Cozy Christmas

Hello! While I was playing along with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Summer Link-up, I created a number of Christmas cards, so many that I didn’t get them all posted! This CAS card combines the Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil, the Sizzix Tim Holtz Woodlands die set, and a Hero Arts sentiment from Winter Wishes.

CAS Cozy Christmas

I cut the tree from Stampin’ Up Tranquil Tide cardstock twice (this is a new color and it is one that I really like!). For one of the die-cut trees, I knocked out the pieces I didn’t want, and the other time I left them in place (taping them securely on the back). I adhered the trees together. I applied the Embossing Paste through the stencil on to Stampin’ Up Crumb Cake cardstock. While the background dried, I stamped the sentiment with Stampin’ Up Soft Suede ink. I cut the sentiment strip with one of the dies in the My Favorite Things STAX Fishtail Flags set. I cut a strip of patterned paper (old Studio Calico paper pack) with a larger die in the same set.

Lawn Fawn – Thanksgiving Feast

Hello! Fall is definitely in the air here in the Pacific Northwest. The leaves are falling, and the sun is that much lower in the horizon. With the upcoming holidays in mind, I created a card with some of the new release items from Lawn Fawn. My card features their Forest Feast set.

Lawn Fawn Thanksgiving Feast

I stamped and Copic-colored the animals and their accessories. I used a combination of inks on the background panel, which I embossed with the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die. Initially, I planned to use cardstock for the grass, but ended up adding Distress ink. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI to position the stamp.

I cut the sentiment and applied the Picked Raspberry ink to the die-cut with one of the Clarity Stencil Brushes. I heat-embossed the Peek-a-Boo Birthday sentiment on the Build a Cake piece (masking the Happy from the sentiment). I placed the assembled cake in front of an area to which I added Distress Oxide Broken China ink. For texture and color, I added Nuvo White Crystal Drops to the candles and TE Sequins – Hello Happiness to the card base.
