Christmas in July

A CAS Christmas card today to add to my pile for December.

The sentiment is an old wood mounted stamp, stamped with Versafine 'Onyx Black'.  I'm not sure about the make of the embossing folder, I think it was a freebie with a craft magazine some time ago.  The red poinsettia was made with the two smallest dies from a Spellbinders set, with three yellow Nuvo Crystal drops added to the centre.

Thinking of You

A quick CAS card today so I can join in a few challenges, including the Less is More Challenge before it closes in a few hours.

The butterfly was made with two Memory Box dies, 'Swirl Butterfly' and 'Darla Butterfly'.  The butterfly is just attached by the body, leaving the wings free.  I added a flight path with Nuvo Crystal Drops.  A sentiment from the Happy Little Stampers 'Dandelion Wishes' set of stamps, stamped with Versafine 'Onyx Black', finished off my card.

Happy Birthday

Happiness is........finding a die, which was part of a set, which I lost 9 or 10 months ago!  I couldn't use the set of dies without the one I lost without trying to cut the piece by hand.  After searching for ages, I assumed I had accidentally thrown it away. 😞 However, when I was going through a box of card yesterday, looking for a particular colour, there was the die between two pieces of card!! 😃

A card I made for my daughter who is celebrating her birthday today.
I started by covering a 6 x 6 card blank with purple and white spotty paper.  The frame, balloons and candle are from Sue Wilson's 'Celebrations' die set using purple pearlised card and silver non-shed glitter card.  I inlaid the white card in the apertures of the frame.  The flower was made with punches and the sentiment is computer generated, printed in grey.

Barbecue Time!

A card today to thank friends for hosting a barbecue last Saturday.

For the background I used a Creative Expressions 'Dotted Matrix PinPoint' embossing folder.  The barbecue was made from snippets of card with dies from the Sue Wilson 'King of the Grill' set and layered on a Memory Box 'Stitched Hexagon' die. I added some red ink to the yellow flames to make them look more realistic. The matted hexagon was attached with foam tape to add dimension.
