Christmas Lights


A little extra for today I've noticed I have quite a few CAS cards in my drafts and I always feel guilty showing them one a day, it feels like I've cheated. So anyway I've been playing with the new stamps that Simon Says Stamps have sent me for Stamptember. One I love how it turned even though it really is very CAS and one was a bit of a failure in my eyes. The Ornaments set was the one I mainly been playing with and  all I did was use the swirl stamp and then stamped the tops before using different coloured ink baubles.
The sentiment was stamped using the Essential Greetings.


Here's my failure, I'm thinking now the enamel dots could be whats throwing things off  on this card.  I've used Ornaments set again including the sentiments not sure why it looks crooked but it is straight. I stamped the swirl but this time I cut out the baubles and since I didn't receive the dies (just waiting for my order to be shipped and they will be winging their way over the Atlantic). I wish those dots weren't well and truly stuck cos I reckon they need to come off.

  1. Just so creative Debby, and even just one little sneak peek of your art, is always exciting and a treat.

  2. These are so cool. I like all your cards, cas and fancy! These are perfect for the "hio" crowd. So many of mine are a bit old lady looking. I should take a lesson from you!

  21. I actually think both cards work as they are but maybe one or two enamel dots in the centre panel would make you feel happier with the second card. Not less is more but more is more ;)

  28. I like CAS design on the first card. The stamping speaks for itself. :-) I think you're being to hard on yourself for the second card, but I do like the first one the best. Hugs!

  35. Both are gorgeous Christmas cards Debby!
    CAS cards are special You should never feel guilty about making one! - Sometimes it is hard to leave all the white space on your card, and then it ends up not being CAS at all.
