On to the card! This is first a beautiful leaf stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy called Season of Change. These leaves are a solid stamp but contain a swirl design within the image...stunning! Second...I cut these out using Sweet 'n Sassy's new dies!! Can I tell you how excited I am about the dies...Over the moon!!! Love, love, love it! Can't wait to use this die with felt...oohhhh...
So here is last week's CAS card...Let's see how I do with getting this week's card created before next week...
Today I'm sharing a card created with PSA Essentials stamps. This is a combination of stamps; a snowflake set, words from a Christmas set, and holly leaves from yet another set! I used a bunch of stamps to create the background and then heat embossed the images with gold embossing powder. I then stamped the holly leaves on scrap paper, colored them with Copics, and cut them out to attached to my punched circle with foam tape. I added some red Stickles to the berries 'cause every card is better with a little bling! A piece of satin ribbon finished off my card!
Be sure to check out the PSA Essentials web site to see all of their fabulous designs!

For my card I used the super fun Seeing Spots stamp set. I love this one, perfect for those CAS cards! I stamped individual images on little cardstock banner and then glued the banner onto a piece of twine (also available from Sweet 'n Sassy). My card was created with layers of plain cardstock (I do like the texture of Bazzill cardstock) and a layer of clear embossed words. I only added six little perfect pearl dots as embellishments. (Oh, and I confess that I didn't use the blue color from the inspiration...I just loved the look of the pink, brown, and green too much!)
Enjoy and be sure to check out the weekly challenge!

Today's card is showcasing this fabulous script background stamp...love it! The name of the stamp is Light of Christmas and will be released tomorrow night at our release party! (Don't know about the release party? Visit our page on Splitcoast!)
For this card, I really wanted to highlight the stamp, although I fully intend to use this as a background behind the cardinal image I share a few days ago! Since I wanted the image front and center, I opted to simply color a die cut square with some Distress Inks...of course leaving a moon shape in the center. (Although wouldn't a star shape have been fab too!) I then dry embossed the background added a small rosette (from MFT), a button (PTI), and twine to the front with a sentiment. This sentiment is from the SNSS stamp set, Primitive Christmas. A hint of blue from grosgrain ribbon and more of those perfect pearls were my finishing touches!
Enjoy and be sure to visit the SNSS blog for the rest of the DT's peeks!
Today's card features the Christmas Joy stamp set - love it! Such a pretty cardinal image and wonderful sentiments. I opted to watercolor my cardinal and in doing so realized that I miss watercoloring! I used to watercolor frequently before Copics hit the market. For this card I pushed dye ink onto the lid of my stamp pad and used a water-filled pen to pick up the ink. The paper on my card is from last year's stash...I think it's from Basic Grey, it's a stunning pattern. Love the addition of the black and gold dew drops.

My last card from the Acetate Card Class, which featured stamps from Hero Arts! I love this set, Let's Go for a Ride, that contains lots of fun bicycle images and coordinating sentiments!
For my card I created a little scene using paper from Momenta. The hill was free hand cut, the sun was cut using a 1 1/4" punch, which I colored yellow, and the cloud is from The Cat's Pajamas (the cloud border die). The bicycle was stamped on white cardstock, cut out and attached with foam tape. I added a few rhinestones because I can't seem to create a card without rhinestones anymore! Oh yeah...I started by stamping bicycle images all over my acetate card, using Staz-On black ink. The look on the inside of the card is pretty cool too!Enjoy! And be sure to check back on 9/9 for the Tiffany Doodles blog hop!!!
