Happy December, crafty friends! Here we go -- the busiest month of the year. Do you have your Christmas cards done? I'm going to send mine out the next few days.
December -- that means there is a new challenge starting in the All Dressed Up Stamps Facebook group. The theme for this month is 'Clean & Simple'. Plus, you must use an All Dressed Up Stamps image.
Is CAS easy for you, or a challenge? I think most of the cards I make are CAS, since I like to make the image front and center. But then, when it's a CAS challenge, I am unsure of the definition and am never sure if the card I made actually fits the theme or not. Such insecurity!
Here's my interpretation of a CAS card using the darling image, It's Snowing:
I kept it simple, just backing the image with a snowflake paper (from Crafter's Companion), colored yardstick, and an inked 6x6 card base.
I colored It's Snowing with Copic markers, adding in a few snowdrifts. I love to use blue violet colors when coloring snow. Living in Wisconsin, I have plenty of time to observe snow and it's shadows every winter. In fact, we've had snow on the ground for a couple weeks now.
I used dies from Queen & Company to cut out the image and the backing layers. The snowflake sequins are by Hero Arts. I heat embossed the Warm Wishes sentiment -- also by Hero Arts.
I hope you find time to join us this month for our Clean & Simple challenge at All Dressed Up Stamps Facebook group. I'd love to see your interpretation of CAS!
