♥ Addicted to CAS ~ JOY ♥







Just completed this card for the Addicted to CAS challenge ~ "JOY"    I have to admit I love how it turned out :)
I used pearl card for the base card, then another piece of pearl card which I embossed with Sizzix embossing folder rounding the corners.  The "JOY" die from Wplus9 is on 3d foam pads to give some dimension, so is the stitched circle.  I added wink of stella over the JOY die, don't know if photo is picking it up and a bunch of messy silver thread behind the sentiment.  Then of course no card is complete without some "enamel dots" or "bling".

thanks for stopping by!


♥ Paper Smooches challenge ♥




I made these cute little 3" x 3" pearl note cards for my mum as part of her Christmas gift.  I made 8 in total but I couldn't get a good photo of them all as I am not great with my camera (",)
The sentiment dies are from Paper Smooches and they are layered on a Memory box butterfly die which I first cut from card stock then another layer of vellum on top and some messy thread behind the butterfly.  The paper is from Echo Park cut using MFT stitched squares.
Paper Smooches are looking for a guest designer for January so I decided to join in :)

IF YOU CLICK ON THE PHOTO,  YOU WILL GET A CLEARER PICTURE, I TRIED TO MAKE IT BIGGER AND IT WENT OFF SCREEN .. "NOT" THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE PLANET!! .. LOL  :)

Thanks for stopping by ♥

♥ CASology ~ TREE ♥




I'm busy ... LOL ... two posts in one day :)  just having fun with my card making and die cuts.
This card is for challenge over at CASology  - Tree is the cue word.
I made this circle shaped card using my MFT stitched circles cut from cream pearl card stock, and I die cut and embossed the trees from Hero Arts, also using the same pearl card.  I wrapped some silver thread around the middle tree and it is popped up on 3d foam dots. Then a few shimmer dots for the baubles. The little star on top is a wooden embellishment.  I popped a blue glitter banner in the background from Papertrey.


Have a lovely evening ♥
