A Perfectly CAS Christmas

Hello there and welcome to the third Perfectly CAS challenge, and what a surprise - our theme is Christmas!

And here is my card.

I used a Stamplorations stamp, heat embossed in gold and watercoloured in, Then I got a bit carried away and did one heat embossed in red sparkle.

And another in white sparkly embossing powder on dark blue card.

That one didn't work as well! But it is three more cards made!

There's some gorgeous makes from my teamies on the challenge blog, so why not give it a go and make a lovely cas card using only one third.

Red Green White

Silvi has chosen red, green and white for the new challenge at Make My Monday. I have used just diecuts for my card

The white mat is a Julia Hickey die and the rest of the diecuts are from a set of dies that came recently with Diecutting Essentials. I may well make a few more of these as they were fairly quick and easy to make and I still need a lot more Christmas cards.

Don't forget there's lots more ideas over on the challenge blog.

Let it Snow

It's time for another challenge at Cardz for Galz and the cue is "Let it Snow". I found this pretty snowflake paper in my stash and cut out his gorgeous snowflake. I think it is a Memory Box die but I'm not sure.

My idea originally was to inlay it  with some icy blue glitter paper but it was too pale and didn't show up, and also incredibly fiddly!. Then I rememberd I had some Bedazzle bead/glitter from many moons ago and had a lovely bluey green one. I carefully tipped some ontop and pressed down onto the adhesive. I will add a sentiment later but wanted to make sure the beads really stuck first.

All wrapped up c4g 5 nov

Welcome to the new challenge at Cardz for Guyz. Helen has chosen All Wrapped Up - people or animals in scarves, hats etc or featuring presents. Lots of choice for you there!

I have used a die from Simon Says Stamp which is a little bit fiddly to use but is perfect for using up scraps of paper and card.  Please head over to the challenge blog and check out the rest of the DT's makes.

Bah Humbug!!

Well here we are at the penultimate Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge before the big day! Goodness knows where this year has gone!


As usual it is Anything Goes but the optional twist is Bah Humbug if you want to go with it. Crafts Beautiful magazine produced this Bah Humbug Christmas pud digi stamp a few years ago which I used to make a card for my youngest son as he hates Christmas!

So I had to search my PC to find it for this challenge. I might even send this one to my son - he might have forgotten about the first one!

I coloured the image with Promarkers and inked some green around the edges of the panel and the backing paper. You'll find a whole heap more inspiration from the rest of the team.

Birthday Cat

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers. It's the start of the month so time for the watercolour challenge.


I have had this cat's face stamp from Visible Image for ages and not used it, so now was the time. I actually made this card for my step-daughter's 40th birthday in October. She's cat mad, although hers are black and white not ginger!

I started off with a Brusho background using brown. The face was stamped in black and clear heat embossed. The eyes and nose were coloured with brushoes as well. I mounted it onto black and then copper mirri card. The inside had the big 40 number rather than the outside. Didn't want to spoil the cat's face!

What animals have the rest of the team used, if any?

The new challenge at Make My Monday is here. Just in time for Remembrance Day we would like to see poppies on your makes.

I have used a Penny Black stamp and clear embossed it. The flowers are coloured with H2Os which has given them a bit of a sheen. A narrow strip of black and white striped paper down the side added a bit of extra interest. Do make sure to check out all the inspiration on the challenge blog.

Sparkly Snowflakes.

Caz has chosen the theme at Cardz for Galz this time and she has picked "Something Beginning with S.  At this time of year what else could I go with but snowflakes and sparkly ones as well!

The paper is from my very large stash of 6 x 6papers cut with a stitched curved edge die. Some blue sparkly card underneath and some silver sparkly snowflakes. Do you think I've covered the "s"?

I wonder how many cards will have snowflakes on? A lot I think!

Apple Pie Anyone?

We have a new challenge at Cardz for Guyz and it was my turn to set the challenge. I chose food and or drink. Think it must have been near dinner time when I thought of it!

I found this apple pie stamp from SSS and an apple sticker. A really quick and easy design. I thought the gingham paper could represent a tablecloth!

Do go and visit the challenge blog to see what the rest of the team have made.

Perfectly Cas 15 october

It was lovely to see all your CAS entries for last month's Perfectly CAS challenge. Hopefully you'll be able to join us again for our second challenge.

Even though we are now in October we have still been eating some very nice strawberries from the supermarket - and British ones at that!  So that is the theme for my card.

I have this lovely strawberry stamp which was free with Craft Stamper magazine years ago. I coloured it with Promarkers and then added glossy accents to the fruit. I scored two lines above and below the fruit, but they're a bit difficult to see in the photo and added a simple sentiment embossed in white on black card.

So now let's see your cas cards using only one third of the card, and check out my teamies makes.
