Naughty or Nice?

cas48_1cas48_3So, these cards are based on the CAS on Sunday #48 challenge CAS on Sunday #48and the card made by Debby Hughes.  You can see it HERE.  I love her pastel, soft, airy designs…

However, I love color on my cards, so for these I used my Mint and Audry Blue ink from Simon Says Stamp for the greens and blues.

cas48_5These were so fun to make.  I made my own tag with the Stampin’ up tag maker.  I quickly copic colored in the stamps from the “Cute Christmas” stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and die cut them with the matching dies.  I used a mama elephant border die to make the snow drifts and some simon says stamp snowflake dies cut out of stampin’ up glitter paper.  For the background paper I used the “Tiny Dots” stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  I used some twine which I coated lightly with multi medium matte and curled.

For my next card I used the inspiration from Jennifer McGuire.  You can see her card and how she did this partial die cutting HERE.   This was my take with a snowflake card…  Such a pretty card and a great way to get more use out of your dies.  I must remember to look at other dies I could do this with…cas48_6cas48_7

Thanks for stopping by.  My kids are off school from tomorrow afternoon, so this may be my last post for the year.  I wish you and your families a very safe and happy Christmas Holiday.
