My friends Sarah, Hazel and I take turns every two months to put together a little package of craft items that must fit in a normal sized envelope. When we receive them, we need to make some CAS cards using as many of the pieces as possible. It was all Hazel's idea and its so exciting seeing what will arrive to play with!!
This month it was Hazel's turn. She chose a 'Christmas' theme and sent us these goodies:
So many beautiful papers, embellishments and die cuts! I could have made a million cards but managed to keep it to four:
Card #1: For this card I used a tag die from Pretty Pink Posh with the vellum from the kit and a tag die from CAS-ual Fridays with the blue paper. I layered them with the kraft tag from the kit and tied them together with some silver twine and some double sided tape to the card front. I adhered the cardinal to the tag and cut out the sentiment and popped up on foam tape.
Card #2: I used the Flower Circle die from Waffle Flower with the blue paper and adhered it to the card front. I then stuck some washi tape to the back of the dove to keep all the die-cut pieces in place before popping it up on foam tape. I cut out the sentiment, popped it up on foam tape and added some clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
Card #3: Amazing how far that piece of blue paper went...... I die-cut two snowflakes from it and also some white CS (dies from CAS-ual Fridays 'Flurry Fri-dies') and glued them to the card front. I then adhered the die-cut 'merry christmas' to the card and covered the words with lots and lots of Wink of Stella. I then added some clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and aqua sequins from Avery Elle for some sparkle.
Card #4: I think this one is my favourite! Hazel included this stamped image on a piece of water colour paper. I gathered four Distress Inks - Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon and water coloured them over the words. Once dry I used a frame die from Pretty Pink Posh and glued on the sparkly snowflake bling from the kit. I cut a piece of aqua CS and adhered it to the card front and popped the water colour panel up on foam tape.
Thank you so much Hazel for creating yet another amazing kit!! I hope you will visit her blog Hazels Paper Designs to see what she made with the kit contents. And also I can't wait to see what Sarah made on her blog Funky Fossil Designs. What wonderful friends they are!!!!!
Our Xmas tree fell over while I was writing this post, so I'm off to clean up the carnage which includes some of my favourite glass ornaments that didn't survive. Why do I keep buying cheap fake tree's with wonky legs!!! Luckily Phoebe gave it a soft landing so it could have been much worse......although she probably wouldn't agree with me....LOL....
