Hi friends. I have a CAS card to share with you using the Heart Smile stamp set from the latest Concord & 9th release available at TupeloDesignsLLC now.
I started by stamping the large heart with some Avery Elle Raspberry Pigment Ink. I then stamped the fun sentiment from the same set. I chopped this panel down just a bit, added a strip of black card stock to my card base and then mounted my stamped panel on with some foam tape. Some sequins finish off the card.
Please note that I decided to add some Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle Marker over the heart. As you can see, it ended up making it look splotchy which is unfortunate. Perhaps it did this because I used a pigment ink? But at this point, it is what it is. :)

Welcome friends. I have two cards to share with you today using products available from TupeloDesignsLLC. Make sure to read to the end where I'll tell you about an awesome promotion that the store is currently running - you can earn dies for free. And you will still receive FREE shipping in the US with this.
For my first card, I am using the Split Chevron Cover-up Die-namics from MFT on both of my cards today. For my first card, I die cut the die and ran it through my Big Shot without using a metal shim. This way, the die cuts through the top portion of the card stock but doesn't really cut through all the way. This die really needs a metal shim. I did it without the shim so that my aqua piece would stay together. I then ran the die through two more times, this time with a metal shim, with the pink and grey card stocks. I added just a few of the pieces on top and then added a sentiment from Altenew.
On my second card, I used the sandwich on my Big Shot to emboss the same Split Chevreon Cover-up Die-namics, rather than cut it out. I love that you can get two completely different looks out of your dies and that it stretches them further. I then took another piece of white card stock and added Versamark around all the edges. I then added Wow Rich Pale Gold embossing powder to create my own gold card stock. I added foam adhesive to the back of my embossed panel and added it to my gold piece. I then die cut the Peaceful Words die from MFT and added it to my card panel. Some clear sequins and the card is finished.

Happy Friday friends. There's a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays that just started and for this challenge, we want to see glitter and snowflakes on your card or other project. Remember that there is up to $50 that can be won from CAS-ual Fridays for entering.
For my card, I started by scribbling on some of my distress crayons in various shades of blues and purples. I have never used these before and was just experimenting a bit. After I scribbled them onto my water color card stock, I spritzed it quite liberally with water to make them move a bit. You can see that the purple didn't quite blend very well but the others moved a bit and softened out. I definitely need more practice with these crayons.
Once my panel was dry, I stamped these beautiful snowflakes in silver ink from the Bring on the Snowflakes set from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. I left a spot in the bottom right corner for a sentiment from the Snowy Sayings stamp set.
Once this was all done, I added a strip of glitter paper to the left of my card and then added my card panel.
I hope you all have an amazing day. Crafty hugs!

Hi friends. I'm here with a real CAS Christmas card, one that would be easy to mass produce and is easy on the mailing costs with no added embellishments. I'm using products available at TupeloDesignsLLC.
Before we get to today's card, I wanted to let you know about a sale TupeloDesignsLLC is having which ends today, November 29th. YOU’LL GET A FABER CASTELL KIT (3 PENCILS, 1 ERASER & 1 UFO SHARPENER – RETAIL VALUE $20) WITH EVERY ORDER AND ALL ORDERS OVER $45 WILL ALSO RECEIVE A FREE 24 ART MARKER KIT (RETAIL VALUE $18)!!! USE SALE CODE CYBERM12016 AT CHECK OUT.
I started by stamping the pine image from the Holiday Style stamp set from Sunny Studios. I stamped it with a couple of different colors of green ink to add dimension. I then stamped the sentiment from the same set in the bottom corner and added an ornament from a set from my stash.
After my stamping was complete, I took the card panel and ran it through my Big Shot using the Lacy Scallop Frame dies from Reverse Confetti. I love the scalloped and stitching detail it adds. Normally, I would have added something like this with foam tape to give it a bit of lift but at this time of the Christmas season, I need to keep things more flat to save time when mailing my cards.
