August STAMPlorations CAS Challenge - Mid-month inspiration


Welcome to our August mid-month reminder for the STAMPlorations August CAS challenge. Thank you for those of you who have already linked up, your creations are amazing. And there is still a few weeks to join us with our gold challenge for a chance to win a gift card to the STAMPlorations store. The ladies of the DT have got together to showcase some amazing STAMPlorations products and inspire you.



I went super CAS for my card, trying to create a design which would be really easy to mass produce for my Christmas cards this year. I know it's only mid-August, but trust me, December will be sneaking up on us quicker that we think so it's about time to get started. So I stamped the Framed Christmas: Peace Love Joy in Versamark along with a sentiment from Christmas Flower and heat embossed everything in gold. Then I grabbed my Gansai Tambi watercolours and coloured the image. Really quick and easy, perfect for mass-producing. I did create a batch of smaller 10x10cm cards using the same design so that's at least half of my Christmas cards for work all sorted out!

I'm linking up with the following challenges:
CASology - Dream (I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, inspiring me to do a Christmas card)
Just Us Girls - Watercolour (my 2nd entry for this challenge)
Winter Wonderland - Use gold/silver and/or use embossed background

Card: White 300 gsm hammered card
Stamps: STAMPlorations Framed Christmas: Peace Love Joy and Christmas Flower
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Versamark, Gansai Tambi watercolours
Other: Gold embossing powder
