Sending Hugs

I have a super CAS card for you today. I started by taking some gorgeous paper from PTI and die cutting it with a stitched frame. I then stamped my sentiments, added some sequins and called it good. I love how the paper does all the heavy lifting for me.

Christmas Greetings for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Hi friends. I have a real CAS Christmas card for you today featuring a gorgeous die from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I die cut several of the Christmas large word die and then glued them together. The other part of my sentiment comes from the Christmas Greetings stamp set.  It got a little more lost in the background paper then I would have liked but I didn't have time to redo this. I figure, it's still a Christmas card that I can send so all is well.

I hope each of you is doing well and having a good week. School started yesterday for my kids so life is a bit crazy right now. Even crazier than normal. :) I'm sure many of you can relate. Crafty hugs!

Here's a closer look at the products I used from Clearly Whimsy Stamps on today's card.

Hello with Butterflies

Thanks for dropping by today friends. My card today features lots of stamping and one of my favorite stamp sets from Clearly Besotted. I started by stamping lots of the butterflies in various ink colors on my white card panel. I then added a bold sentiment from a PTI set. The entire card panel is popped up on fun foam and some sparkling clear sequins from PPP have been added.  

I also thought it would be a good idea to add some drops of white paint. However, I'm not happy with how my drops ended up. I was hoping for small splatters but that's not the way it worked out. There's no changing it now though. :)

Thanks for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Before I get started, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who left comments on my last post wishing me better. Unfortunately, I am dealing with chronic pain in my neck and head for the last several months and I'm not sure how things will work out. I've been doing many things to try and combat this but nothing seems to really work. Any way, thank you for your kind words and thoughts. They mean the world to me.

Now onto today's card. It features some fun items from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I started by stamping lots of various circles from the Circles, Circles, Circles stamp set in several colors. I then die cut the Thanks large word die from the stamped panel and set that aside for a moment. I then die cut the thanks die 3 more times, this time from just white card stock. I then glued all my die cut words together with the stamped portion ending on top.  

I've seen this technique done many times and I wanted to use it. As always friends, I so appreciate you stopping by and spending part of your day with me. I hope you have a fabulous day!

An embossed Hi

I'm sorry for the slow last few weeks on my blog. Health issues are keeping me down and I just can't seem to make it to my craft room. This card is one I made about a month ago. 

I've been wanting to play with this gorgeous background stamp from IO for some time now. I started by embossing it in white. I then took several colors of Distress Inks and inked my background. The die cut sentiment is from MFT and some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finish off the card. I should also mention that the entire card panel is popped up on fun foam.

Thanks for stopping by today friends. Have a most wonderful day!
