"I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus / Underneath the mistletoe last night. / She didn't see me creep / down the stairs to have a peek / She thought I was tucked up in my bedroom fast asleep."
I've got two cards to show you today featuring holiday releases from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. The first card uses Merry Kiss-Mas. I stamped and embossed the mistletoe image onto a panel of white cardstock and then added a touch of depth with some light yellow sponging in the background. I finished complimenting the image with a few dots of white Enamel Accents. After stamping the a portion of the "merry kiss-mas" sentiment from the set, I adhered the panel to the card base and finished it all off with a big silk bow from May Arts. I was really inspired by this beauty here!
Young Crafters Unite is hosting a Holiday Card Challenge, and since I'm actually going to be sending this one out this year, I thought it would be a perfect fit!
The second card is my *first* attempt at the chalk board technique wonderfully shown in Betsy's tutorial here. I chose to work with images from the uber fun and stylish Countdown set from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.
I stamped and heat embossed one of the many border strips from the set as well a sentiment, then came back and added a shadow with white ink. I then colored in some of the bubbles with colored pencil and finished with the "chalk."
Two super fun holiday sets from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps...two totally different cards.
