Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #234

Happy Monday, we are back with a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge. This week Kathy is our hostess and her challenge: Make a CAS (clean and simple) Christmas Card.


I love the idea of this challenge, things have been pretty busy lately and I have been trying to get the hang of making CAS cards for those times when I want to craft but don't have a lot of time.

I made a really simple card. I used a die cut for the trees and pieced it back together with DP paper scraps. I added a popped up sentiment from the same paper pack.



Supplies: White  and red card stock, Designer Paper - Pink Paislee, Simon Says - Winter trees.

Be sure to play along with us for the Merry Monday challenge.

Inspired by All the Little Things #42

Good Morning and Happy Saturday, I am so honoured to have been asked by Lesley Crohan from Always Playing with Paper to be a Creative Guest Design for Inspired by All the Little Things #42.. I am very exciting:)


I had all sorts of wonderful ideas flashing through my head when I say this image. In the end I went with a CAS card.

I decided to use some scraps I had on the corner of my table and I have this "love" stamp calling to me from my basket of new items to use.

I heat embossed the sentiment and popped up the heart with foam tape. I finished by mounting my top panel to some red card stock to add a little more colour.


Supplies: White and red card stock, Simon Say stamps - die cuts.

Thank you Lesley and team for having me as a Guest this week.

Muse Challenge #200

Good Evening, a quick post tonight. I am playing along with the current Muse Challenge.

This is the inspiration card by Jenni Murray, its is darling.



I started with some flowers but I just could not bring it together. So I started over and this one was pretty quick to create using the Jenny's card like a sketch.

I love this paper, it is a older pad and I will be sad when I have used up all the scraps which are all that are left.

I die cut the hearts and fussy cut the sentiment and the frame is from a stitched die cut. I put all the elements together tossing in some foam tape here and there.




Supplies: White card stock, Designer Paper - Echo Park, Simon Says Stamp - Stitched die cuts.

Cheers,
Nina
