CASology Leaf

Wow! It's been quite awhile since my last post. It's nice to be sharing a card with you. I had totally lost my mojo - AGAIN! I swear it happens to me more than anyone else - not sure why that is, but it always feels good to create again!

I wanted to make a card for the CASology challenge. This week, the cue word is "leaf." I love the Classic Holly stamp from Hero Arts, so thought I'd get it out to play. 

I know it could be even more clean and simple, and I'm continually working on that. Really, all I did was stamp, color, cut and adhere, so for me, it's fairly CAS. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)

Hero Arts Framelits


I've been playing with the Hero Arts, Reindeer Framelit, Stamp and Die-Cut set lately. Such a cute set! I made this first card the other day. It uses a reindeer and the trees from the set.

I thought it would be fun to create a little scene inside a scalloped circle card. The sky is Sticky Back Canvas, shaded with Distress Inks. I put the whole scene together, then cut the shape with a die and my Cuttlebug.

I wanted to play some more with the trees in the same set today, but ended up just using one. I stamped it several times across the panel and cut out three others from patterned paper. 

It was such a beautiful, fall day today, I just had to shoot the photo outside. At the exact time I was pushing the shutter button, a pretty leaf fell right next to my card. Thought it went well with the colors, so I left it in the photo.

Thanks for coming by! Hope everyone has a great week! :)
