CAS Quick Card Set
For my quick card set this week, I chose to try something a bit out of the box. We’ve had some wonderful samples using coloring, glittering, and regular stamping so I decided to showcase something a bit different.
I decided to go with F-608 Presents for Warren stamp using white pigment ink and Stamp & Bond embossing powder. I just love the look of white on kraft colored cardstock.
. . . and look how great it looks with the glitter too. I used our TRC0010 Scrap Happy Glue and G108 You’re So Fine Glitter in Diamond Clear Cool and Princess Pink on the presents to help them pop.
Since my card above did have some fussy cutting, I thought I would do another simpler version with less cutting so it could be replicated quickly.
This card simply uses the stamp with white pigment ink along with the glitter for the snow and accents to the presents but with no embossing powder.
So you can see what a different look this is by using the white ink and glitter.
For this final card, I simply used the glitter for the snow base and nothing else on the stamp. This last card would be incredibly easy and fast to do if in a hurry.
Also did you see the beautiful bow centers?
These are made with our FABULOUS Jellie Dots. They are so gorgeous. Here’s how I created the bow centers.
To make the centers, you will need the RC001 Stick Em’ Up tool, Jellie Dots, and TRC0010 Scrap Happy Glue.
Simply place a small amount of glue on a 1 inch circle covering about half of the middle. Let air dry for a few minutes until it becomes tacky.
Next using the Stick Em’ Up tool, place the Jellie Dots in the center of the circle.
TIP: Ever have a problem getting embellishments to flip over? I’ve found that by putting the Jellie Dots in the lid and giving it a quick shake, they will flip over so that I can then pick them up.
Once the flower centers are adhered, you can then cut around them and adhere to your project. It’s that easy.
I hope you’ve been inspired to make some quick holiday cards this week. Stay tuned to the blog where there will be more last minute card ideas to showcase!
