CAS Christmas

Hello Friends, I have another Christmas card to share with you today and it’s for the CAS Christmas Card Challenge.  The word they have for us this month is Poinsettia. I have this intricate poinsettia stamp from Verve that I just love and thought it might do the trick. I heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. I decided to pair it up with this bold Alcohol ink paper that I made a few weeks ago. Besides being bow challenged it came out alright. I am going to put my Christmas greeting on the inside. The one inch stitched square die is from SU. The outer rectangle is from MFT.

I am also linking my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s time for Clean and Simple.

Here is another one I made in a different color. 

Thanks for stopping in! Nanc’

Alcohol Inks!

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! Have you jumped on the Alcohol Ink band wagon yet?  You probably have, as I am usually pulling up the rear when it comes to Crafty trends. LOL. Bobby over at Just Us Girls picked that as our Trend this week, and boy oh boy am I enjoying them. I started out with a three pack and realized right away that that wasn’t going to be enough.  I ran out the very next day and bought more. I made a total of 7 cards that day, but am only sharing two.

Here is the other one!  My only regret, is I decided at the last minute to put some alcohol ink on the above butterfly, as I felt it was to plain but immediately following my first droplet I remembered that the butterfly is made out of regular Card Stock and not glossy Card Stock. Rats!!! Well I think that is what I said. LOL After the first drop, I had no choice but continue the rest of the butterfly. I should have just cut out another butterfly and tried again but I will know better next time! 

Please come over to Just Us Girls and check out what the team and our Guest Hannelie have done. If you haven’t tried them you really must, or you can make your own  using a nib of a sharpie, and Bobby has so kindly linked those instructions up for us over at JUGS.  Take care, Nanc’
