Hi cardmakers and friends! I’m so excited to post today with the CAS Christmas Challenge! I won their challenge a few weeks ago with a CAS wreath card and now I get the honor to play along with them as a guest! You are invited to play a long too!
The theme for this month is….
I chose to use one of the super cute Mama Elephant Santa Agenda stamps…the Santa that’s ready to go down the chimney!
He’s so cute! I stamped him on Copic X-Press It coloring cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, in the MISTI and colored him with Copic Sketch Markers.
I used some white gel pen after I finished coloring to highlight his fur and beard. TIP: Don’t color with Copics after you use the gel pen because it ruins the nib on your marker!
I die cut the poppystamps Snowy Merry Christmas die three times in white, glued them together, keeping all the pieces on two of the cuts. Then I die cut one time in red. I stamped a brick stamp with black ink on the red cut, then pieced the red into the top white cut…going for a chimney look!
Everything I used is linked below.
I wanted to put snow or sparkle on the tops of the chimney but I was afraid I would ruin it! So I kept it CAS. haha
I added the small snow flake from the poppystamps Shiny Snowflake die and a red glitter dome.
On the inside I stamped, ’tis the season to be jolly from a Penny Black stamp set.
I sure have been having fun with my stamps and dies! ‘Tis the season and my favorite time of year to make cards! I hope you’re inspired to get in the Spirit of Christmas and make cards! Thank you so much Loll for asking me and to the team for sharing their CAS creativity!
