Mass-Produce CAS Christmas Card Idea

This Christmas elf is working really hard catching up with the Christmas card projects at last minutes. And the solution is… mass- produce CAS Christmas cards using digital stamps and digital papers!!!

I am a HUGE FAN of Graciellie Design Holidays themed digital stamps and digital papers! On my CAS Christmas card today, I use: Festive Poinsettia Digital Stamp Bundle, Christmas Poinsettia Digital Stamp, Rustic Winter Wishes Digital Papers.

I had a card sketch that stuck in my brain but I totally forgot where I saw it. So… the sketch design is credited to the person who design it. And here’s how I made this card:

  1. I used Silhouette Studio to open and resize the wreath image. After that, I turned on the Print-and-Cut feature.
  2. I printed wreath image in a batch using inkjet printer on heavy weight cardsrock
  3. I cut the wreaths with my Silhouette Cameo 3. This way really saved me lots of time to fussy cut them one by one!
  4. I colored the wreath with Arteza EverBlend markers.
  5. I cut the wreath into half to make 2 carsd.
  6. I printed the digital papers on white cardstock, then trimmed it into 4 – 4.25” x 5.5” card front panel.
  7. I printed the sentiments on a white cardstock, trimmed them into sentiment label.
  8. I put the pieces together on A4 white cards using permanent adhesives and 3D foam tape.
  9. I embellished the card with some white pearls.

I hope this CAS Christmas card can spark an idea for you. Let me know what is your favorite technique to use for Holiday project.

Stencil Challenge | Hello Beautiful, Slimline Shaker Card

Hello everyone… Today, I would like to share this Hello Beautiful, slimline shaker card.

I used the stamping with stencil technique to create the background using Leaf Print 4 Slimline Stencil. Then, I cut out the 3 squares using one of the square die from the Basic A2 Panel Nesting Dies. And then I added the pieces of acetate on the back of the square windows. I added some 3D foam tape around it.

I used Color Confetti ShakerBlends for the shaker fillers and then I added the background panel on top the slimline card. I added the sentiment from one of the Just Everyday Greetings Clear Stickers on the card with permanent adhesive.

Have you played with the STAMPlorations November stencil challenge yet? You still have time until the end of the month. Go here for more detail.

Fall/Winter 2020 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day

Hello hello hello everyone! It is Friday and… IT IS THE DAY! The Fall/Winter 2020 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is officially begun! I hope you all are as excited we are.

This Fall/Winter 2020 Coffee Lover Blog Hop starts at Coffee Loving Cardmaker Blog. It starts on Friday, November 6, 2020 through Friday, November 13, 2020.

If you are posting on any social media, you can tag us using this hashtag: ‪#fallwinter2020clh and if have not joined us yet, you can join our Coffee Loving Cardmakers Facebook Group where you will find tons of inspirations, fun events, sponsor giveaways, and more!

Today, I started this hop with this SUPER DUPER ADORABLE brand new stamp set – Crazy 4 Cocoa, from Super Sponsor Dare 2B Artzy. It is now available for pre-order now and extimate to be available for shipping the beginning of December.

During this hop, Dare 2B Artzy offers a 10% off with code Coffee10 for your order.

So… I colored the image with Arteza EverBlend Art Markers. Do you see I used magnets to hold the cardstock in place? It was because, 2 weeks ago I had a surgery on my elbow, and I am still on splint and sling. I cannot use my left arm for a while. Then I remember that I have WRMK magnet mat and those MISTI super strong magnets. So Ta-Da! I can do some simple coloring.

The dies I used on my slimline cards are Wavy Slimline Framelits Dies and Oval Scalloped Framelit Dies. When I did the die cutting, it involved LOTS of the amazing iCraft Removable Purple Tape from the Super Sponsor Therm O Web to hold down the cardstocks and dies. And I am grateful for my Gemini Junior, too.

I also used one of the patterned papers from the Snow Much Fun Collection Variety Pack. I embelished the card with some sequins from my stash.

I hope this card give you a spark of idea for you to create any coffee/tea/cocoa projects and link up with us this season.
