Cas Christmas Challenge January, 2022

So, it has been quite a while since I have posted a card for a challenge.  See previous post to see what I have been up to. It is great to be back crafting.
Our first CAS Christmas Challenge is by our wonderful host Julia who would like us to make a card in Silver and Golds.  Now, I know it's January and that might be the last thing you want to do is make another Christmas card but think how happy you'll be next November when you have your cards done. 

Say hello to our talented, Guest Designer, Lisa of (My Paper Tales).

I used Gina K's Peace Love & Joy embossed in Silver and Gold
The sentiment is from Gina's Perfect Poinsettia.

Thanks for stopping by.

Pictures of New Craft Room & Triplets

Wow, it's been a long time since I have posted to my blog.  You might have seen that I have been busy packing, unpacking and organizing in our new home.  My sister and I have finally bought a new home, with 2 living spaces and 4 bedrooms which gives us our own space when one is reading, or one is watching TV.  So nice to have our own space. 
Also, still within 15 minutes from the triplets and Colleen.
  We finally are all settled and have our Christmas decorations up.  I'm not very good at taking pictures of the Christmas decorations.
Nice to be back in my Craft room.

So nice to have 2 more DVD bookcases to put stamps set in.  Ramie found them for me on Offer Up.

Christmas Decorations with our little tree.  As we get older the tree gets smaller.

CAS Christmas September 2021

A  card for this month's CAS Christmas hosted by my Bff, Colleen.
She would like us to use plaid on our cards.  Come join us as the countdown is getting near.  So much inspiration created by our DT's.

I used Avery Elle's Frosty Friends colored with Copics.  The paper is Gina K. Winter Whimsy
After posting this I decided to some clear bling to the middle of the snowflakes.

Color Hues #24

I am so excited to be the Guest Designer for Color Hues
It is such an honor.  Come join in the fun using these two colors.
The challenge is to use Turquoise & Coral
I used a technique by Jennifer McGuire called Floating Die Cut Frames and after an unsuccessful attempt was able to come up with this card.
I used Pinkfresh Infinite Blooms, stamp, stencil & die set. (See video above) I made 3 sets of them to fill up the page and then was able to die cut the oval.  I then popped it up for more dimension.  Then used some miscellaneous bling. I used PTI's Berry Sorbet & Gina K's Turquoise Sea

Thanks for stopping by.
